Have almost everything ready and no instructions or suggestions on how to mount. I need help I have the aluminum bracket and the snap on screen. Need help or suggestions on how to mount.


I was lucky in the order, but I've always been lucky when it comes to killin' folk - Unforgiven cannot wait for the hd-dvd of this gem

Simple! Just use some 1x2's or 1x4's and use wood screws to put them up on the wall on all four sides to the inside of the 1" square aluminum frame. Then you can easily place the frame on the wall and you know the frame is level. Also, the wood will keep the frame from bowing, as the screen is stretched VERY taught when snapping onto the frame.

Believe me... you're in for a real treat when it comes to snapping the screen material onto the frame. Their is a reason that they have sewn-in pull handles on the corners.I can remember saying a few "not so nice" words when I was attaching my old Draper screen material.http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/wink.gif

Don't forget to cover the area behind the screen with some black felt. You can staple it on the 1x2's and about $15-20 worth will do it.

If you would like a copy of the installation instructions, you can find them on Draper's new website. You can link to it at www.draperinc.net. Please contact me if you have any problems.

I drilled through the frame and screwed it directly into the wall studs.

Remember to snap the four corners first, and then the remaining snaps. (Draper recommends this as well.) Otherwise, you will have a difficult time getting that last corner snapperd.

Back in the early days, there were just HD demo loops, no programming. Now HD 3D, amazing!
