STEP 1 / 5

CHOOSE THE LOCATION FOR YOUR SIGN

Steel stand-offs can be mounted on a variety of surfaces including brick or stone walls, wooden fences and gates, as well as both interior and exterior doors. After selecting an ideal location for your sign, proceed to the following step.

MARK OUT THE DRILL HOLES

Align your sign precisely where you wish to mount it on the surface. Then, using a pen, mark the exact center of each screw hole on the sign to indicate where the screws will be placed.
