You will need
- 3/16” drill bit
- Phillips screw driver
- Small level
- Sheetrock saw (or similar)
- Slim charging cable (if applicable)
1. Site Survey
Identify a suitable location for installing your flush mount. The location you select should be clear of wall studs and have enough clearance in the wall for the flush mount and the power converter pod to be recessed.
Attach the provided cutout template to the wall using masking or painters tape. Be sure that the template is perfectly level – an unlevel template will result in your mount not being level.
Place tape on each edge of the template – top, bottom, left and right – being sure not to cover any of the template cut outs.
Verify that there are no studs, wires or pipes behind where you’ll be installing the mount – or anything that could interfere with installation of the mount.
Using a pencil, mark the screw holes in the four corners of the mount template and then trace along the template cutout line.
NOTE: the cut line is the inner rectangle – not the outer perimeter of the mount template.
Carefully remove the template from the wall – you should now see the four screw locations and the rectangular cut-out line – if any of these areas did not transfer properly to the wall, repeat the prior steps
IMPORTANT: first, using a 3/16 in. drill bit, carefully drill the holes for the mounting screws, as this will prevent your drill from splitting the sheet rock (as could be the case if you first cut out the rectangle, and then drilled for the screws).
Be careful to drill in the direct center of the marked hole locations, as being off center can cause your mount to be out of level.
Before cutting out the rectangle, insert the included wall anchors and lightly tap with a hammer until they are seated in the holes and flush with the wall surface.
Using a sheet rock saw (or saw appropriate to the wall surface you’ll be cutting) cut out the rectangular hole keeping the saw on the pencil line.
Test fit your flush mount to ensure it lays flush against the wall and that the holes in the mount line up with the wall anchors you installed earlier. If necessary, carefully shave the edge of the sheet rock until the mount installs easily and flush with the wall – BE CAREFUL not to cut or shave too close to the wall anchors.
4. Power Converter12v, 24/48v, and Passive POE:
If you selected the 12v, 24/48v or Passive POE converter when purchasing your mount, your power converter is already installed into the power pod.
Attach the power pod to the back of your flush mount using the enclosed flat head screws. Install each screw through from the “tablet side” of the flush mount and into the power pod – being careful not to over tighten.
Connect the red and black wires of the slim charging cable to the appropriately labeled positive (+) and negative (-) wires of your power converter using the supplied wire nuts.120/240v AC:
If you selected the 120/240v converter when purchasing your mount, your power converter is already installed into the power pod.
Attach the power pod and the spacer to the back of your flush mount using the enclosed flat head screws.
Install each screw through the “tablet side” of the flush mount, through the spacer and into the power pod being careful not to over tighten. The red and black wires of your power pod should face up towards the spacer and mount. Note that the electrical cover will be attached in a later step.
Connect the red and black wires of the slim charging cable to the positive (red) and negative (black) wires of your power converter using the supplied wire nuts. The wire nuts will lay recessed in the spacer attached in the previous step.
The black and white wires should now be extended out the bottom of your power pod.
CAUTION: Connecting your 120/240v AC converter involves working with 120/240v AC mains power which can be harmful if not handled properly. Ensure electric to the circuit you will be connecting it to is turned off at the electrical circuit breaker box, verify no power is flowing using an appropriate test device and understand your municipalities local electrical code before installing. If you are not experienced working with mains power devices or do not know how to distinguish between the live/hot and neutral legs of your 120/240v AC electrical circuit, please DO NOT PROCEED and instead enlist the help of a qualified electrician.
IMPORTANT: Confirm that all electric to the circuit you will be connecting to is turned off.
Insert your AC electrical circuit wire through the electrical cover’s cutout.
Connect the power pod’s WHITE wire to the NEUTRAL leg of your electrical circuit using an appropriately sized wire nut.
Connect the power pod’s BLACK wire to the LIVE/HOT leg of your electrical circuit using an appropriately sized wire nut.
Using the supplied rounded head machine screws, attach the electrical cover to the power pod enclosing the AC circuit and wire nuts with the pod.
5. Attach Mount to Wall
With the power pod now attached to the back of the flush mount, insert the flush mount into the wall opening you cut out earlier and ensure the 4 mounting holes in the corners of the flush mount align with the wall anchors you installed earlier.
Using the included screws secure the flush mount to the wall being sure not to over tighten. The mount should be attached securely, and without being deformed from one or more screws being over tightened.
6. Install your Tablet
Attached your slim charging cable to your tablet and insert your tablet into the mount charging side first.
White holding your tablet secure in the mount with one hand, attach the trim bezel to the mount securing the tablet in place. The trim bezel leverages magnets to keep your tablet secure.
