Alien Head Screw Installation Instructions

Wall Preparation: Assumes drywall conditions  
Required Installers: 2                    
Required Tools: Listed below

To Install Artwork: 

1.      Determine placement location and center of the wall with measuring tape. Mark center of wall or location with pencil as a placement guide. In general, most units are centered between existing wall elements or at center on wall.
2.      The suggested height to the center of the unit is 62”- 64” above finished floor (AFF).
3.      Using the pencil mark as you guide for center use the measuring tape and measure from the floor up to 62”- 64” or desired height and make a mark using pencil. Place unit on wall surface at the center of this mark.
4.      Use the holes in your material as a template to mark holes on wall surface. Installer 1 will hold the unit and the level on the top while installer 2 makes the correct marks.
5.      Use pencil to mark circles on each hole and then find center of each hole using level.

Pro Tip #1: Once you find your first mark on the hole you can manually measure out point -to point rather than hold the unit against wall, per the picture below.

6.      Drill 3/16” holes in your wall surface with drill then insert drywall anchors into drilled holes and tap flush with hammer

Pro Tip#2: If no drill bits are available, then a screwdriver can be used to punch out the hole and minimize drywall dust and clean up.

7.      Place unit on wall and insert mounting screws using drill with provided specialty bit. Be sure to not completely drive the screws in since you may need to level the unit and make slight adjustments.
8.      Have installer 2 hold a level on the unit and then drive in all mounting screws using a drill or screwdriver.

Note: Silicone and/or construction adhesive can additionally be applied prior to driving in mounting screws to add another level to security that may be needed in high risk areas.

Note: Always check wall surface to ensure that there is no existing wall damage. Installation must be done with provided hardware to ensure a safe installation and to retain warranty. 

Clean-up and Care:
- Use a dry Microfiber Towel to remove fingerprints.
- Use a Magic Eraser or rubbing alcohol (if available) and a microfiber cloth to remove any scuffs and/or marks made to the wall during installation.
- Use a handheld vacuum or damp Microfiber Towel if drywall dust is present on the baseboard or floor.
- Acrylic sheeting can be damaged by harsh solvents and cleaners. Use soap and water and a Microfiber Towel to remove dirt and debris. Never use cleaning agents containing ammonia, acetone, carbon tetrachloride, or gasoline as cracking and frosting may occur.
