Okay, screen arrived today! First thing I noticed is there were no black-velvet-wrapped 2x4's as JS
, as well as the installation instructions, said. The frames were loose inside the single, long box, albeit wrapped up in bubble wrap. The fabric was not in a separate box, either, just wrapped up in a roll with thin foam in between layers. Guess Rich has "modified" his packing methods.
I notice on the instructions' second sheet there is a picture of a guy (Rich?) mounting the hangman brackets underneath and inside what looks to be some kind of wood blocking frame. Be nice to know what that is, why it's there, and should I do it as well?
As stated above, I will need to block out the hangman brackets a couple of inches to allow for the convoluted foam behind the screen. Probably screw a piece of .5" plywood to a section of 2x4. Sure would have been nice to have had those already-velvet-wrapped shipping pieces to use that were previously included in the packaging. I don't happen to have any velvet lying around.
You know what would be nice -- a YouTube video of the installation process. Almost everything needing to be assembled has one these days. Be easy enough to make and it would eliminate a lot of questions, I'm guessing.
