STUD MOUNT INSTALLATIONS
Installation patterns are recommended for stud mount installations and are available by (Clicking Add Installation Pattern on the item total page) If you have 2 signs you need 2 patterns  


TOOLS NEEDED

1) Masking Tape
2) Level
3) Drill & Drill Bit
4) Tube of Silicone


 

1) Tape one edge of the Installation pattern to the installation surface with masking tape and unroll it. Level the pattern and tape the other edge to the installation surface.

 

 

2) Punch and drill holes 3 inches deep where indicated on your template. Remove the template and clean out all drill holes: a puff of air through a straw works well.

 

3) Screw the studs into the stud holes on the back of each letter. Now fill the drill holes in the wall of the first letter with silicone.

 

 

4) Push the tube of silicone over each stud on the first letter in order to evenly coat it with adhesive.

 

 

5) Push the letter into the drill holes, flush mount or use a shim to assure the proper standoff of the letter from the wall. Repeat steps 3 through 5 for the rest of the letters.

 

How to avoid common INSTALLATION problems

  • Studs are randomly placed, patterns are needed for each set of letters ordered
  • Check installation template (mounting pattern) before leaving the shop.
  • Verify all boxes and letters have been delivered before leaving the shop.
  • Center and level template on mounting surface.
  • Clean surface thoroughly before using 100% silicone.
  • Blow all debris from holes after drilling (stud or combination mount).
  • Check letter orientation to avoid upside down characters.
  • Make sure number on back of each letter matches positioning on template.
  • Use only top quality materials (silicone, tape, etc.).
