Locking Standoff 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.
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: 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.      Insert mounting screw into Standoff Barrel and use a screwdriver or drill to drive screws into wall surface. Remove center placement mark from step 3 with pencil eraser.
8.      Have installer 1 hold substrate and place over first Standoff Barrel. Have installer 2 place silicone washers behind unit and on the front, per image below.
9.      Have installer 2 insert Standoff Cap into Standoff Barrel, per image below and twist until tight.
10.   Use provided Hex Key to tighten M4 set screw that is in the side of the Standoff Barrel.

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. Do not overtighten Standoff Cap, hand tighten only.

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.
