Installation to Double Wood Stud Wall

• Installer must verify that the supporting surface will safely support the combined load of the equipment and all attached
hardware and components.
• Tighten wood screws so that wall plate is firmly attached, but do not overtighten. Overtightening can damage the
screws, greatly reducing their holding power.
• Never tighten in excess of 80 in. • lb (9 N.M.).
• Make sure that mounting screws are anchored into the center of the stud. The use of an "edge to edge" stud finder is
highly recommended.
• Hardware provided is for attachment of mount through standard thickness drywall or plaster into wood studs. Installers
are responsible to provide hardware for other types of mounting situations (not evaluated by UL).
Wall plate (A) can be mounted to two studs that are 16" apart. Use a stud finder to locate the edges of the studs.
Use of an edge-to-edge stud finder is highly recommended. Based on their edges, draw a vertical line down each
stud's center. Place wall plate on wall as a template. Level plate, and mark the center of the four mounting holes.
Make sure that the mounting holes are on the stud centerlines. Drill four 5/32" (4 mm) dia. holes 2-1/2" (65 mm)
deep. Make sure that the wall plate is level, secure it using four #14 x 2.5" wood screws (D) as shown in figure 1.2.
