These chargers are designed to be wall mountable or to
sit upright on a table or work surface. If wall mounting,
locate the charger within reach of an electrical outlet,
and away from a corner or other obstructions which may
impede air flow. Use the back of the charger as a template
for the location of the mounting screws on the wall. Mount
the charger securely using drywall screws (purchased
separately) at least 1" (25.4 mm) long, with a screw head
diameter of 0.28–0.35" (7–9 mm), screwed into wood to an
optimal depth leaving approximately 7/32" (5.5 mm) of the
screw exposed. Align the slots on the back of the charger
with the exposed screws and fully engage them in the slots.
CRAFTSMAN chargers can be mounted to the wall using
CRAFTSMAN Versatrack Trackwall. Hooks and accessories
are sold separately. Please refer to the Versatrack Trackwall
accessory sheet for further information.
