Installing the Chassis on a Board
To install the chassis on a board
Step 1 Place the chassis on top of the board and mark the four bracket screw locations on the board.
To determine the screw locations, refer to Figure 19, which shows the chassis positioned sideways and flat against the wall at eye level.
Figure 19 Determining Screw Locations
Step 2 To make inserting the screws easy, predrill the screw locations.
Step 3 If you have not already mounted the board flat against the wall:
a. Locate the wall studs and mark the screw locations so that the chassis is at eye level and you can see the LEDs.
b. Using your own hardware, attach the mounting board to the studs.
Step 4 While supporting the chassis, fasten the chassis to the board using the four provided wood screws. Start with the top bracket and then fasten the bottom bracket (Figure 20).
