WHATS IN THE BOX
The box contains 1 medal holder, 2 back supports, screws, and a choice of white screw anchors or red screw anchors.
*Please note that the fittings included may not be suitable for all wall types, and you may need to purchase fittings to suit your requirements.
BEFORE YOU START:
To mount the medal holder we recommend you use a drill with a 5/16 inch (8mm) size drill bit if you are using the white screw holders (best for drywall) or a 7/32 inch (6mm) drill bit if using the red screw anchors (suitable for general purposes). You will also need pencil and eraser or damp cloth, a spirit level, a Phillips screwdriver and a measuring tape.
Hold the medal holder against the wall where you would like to mount it and make sure that it fits and that there is plenty of room for the medals to hang down freely. We suggest you test it with a few medals on it to be certain before you start to drill. It is very important to check that there are no water pipes or electrical cables inside the wall where you are drilling – we don’t want any accidents! If in doubt, choose somewhere else.
Press the medal holder firmly against the wall and check that it is level. Hold it steady and use the pencil to draw around both the hole shapes on the wall. You will need to drill a hole to a depth a little longer than the screw anchor. It helps to mark this on the drill bit before you start, eg. with some tape.
DRILLING AND INSERTING SCREW ANCHORS
Hold the drill at right angles to the wall where you marked the hole, and drill slowly at first to reduce wobble where you marked the wall. You can apply more pressure as the drill goes in. When you have drilled the two holes deep enough, rub away any remaining pencil marks and then gently push the white screw anchors in so that the rim is resting against the wall, or the red screw anchors until they are completely flush with the wall.
MOUNTING THE MEDAL HOLDER
Screw the screws into the screw anchors so they are steady. Do not go in all the way into the wall, as you need to leave enough room to insert the back supports and the medal holder. Put the back supports onto the screws and push them in towards the wall. Insert the medal holder onto the screws in front of the back supports, lining the back supports up with the vertical part of the medal holder. Tighten the screws and continue to adjust the medal holder to keep it level and the two back supports to keep them lined up behind the medal holder, tightening the screws until the medal holder is firmly in place. Simply loosen and tighten
the screws again slightly if you need to make any adjustments.
