Surface Mounting Instructions
The Sender and Receiver units can be mounted on any flat surface, as shown below
(screws not included). There should be an inch or two of clearance between the edges of
the unit and any walls or vertical surfaces to allow for enough clearance for connection and
disconnection of the video cables.
For installation on a drywall surface, use a #6 drywall screw. When installing, it is
recommended to use the center hole on a stud.
