1. Select the location for your screen so that it has access to a good power source as well as a
functioning angle and throw distance for your projector.
2. For the best installation results, it is ideal to secure your screen into the studs of your house's
internal wooden framework. If studs are not available in your preferred point of installation, use
the hollow wall anchors for mounting your wall-screws into the drywall. If you are installing into
a concrete structure, use the concrete bolts for securing your screen into the walls. ( Note*
Always consult a professional installer or hardware store specialist for the correct
screws and bolts)
3. Make sure that the screen is perfectly level. Always use a leveling tool to ensure that the
screen runs in perfect alignment with its center of gravity.
4. Position the washers at the head of the wall-screw. The washers give added stability and
ensure that the casing is firmly anchored to the wall.
5. The screen casing is designed to accept the wall screws directly. If not using the optional Lbrackets, be sure to position the washer between the head of the wall-screw and the anchor
slots on the projector casing.
Regardless of mounting method, screens should be securely supported so that vibration or even
abusive pulling on the viewing surface will not cause case to work loose or fall. Installers must
insure that the fasteners used are of adequate strength and suitable for the mounting surface
chosen.

1. Using a tape measure, mark the keyholes that are located at the back of the screen's case end cap.
2. After marking the area and predrilled hole, insert the screw and leave about 1/8” of an inch from the
wall to mount the screen. (Fig. 1)
