We hope these photos will help guide you as you install the display. Read the captions for tips and how-tos.
****Be sure to fill out a DISPLAY CONDITION REPORT as you unpack and repack the display, and note any scratches, nicks, or other damage. ****
- Carrying the crates takes two or three people. The heavier of the two crates is the flat panel display.You can also transport the crates on furniture or other dollies.
- Ropes are attached to the crates for carrying.
- Wooden skids are attached for moving crates along floors if needed.
- Furniture dollies can make crates easier to move.
- A No. 2 Phillips head drill bit is needed to open the crates. There are few screws and unpacking should be very easy.
- Panels fit crates tightly. If you don’t have small fingers, Use the SUCTION TOOL to remove them easily. Simply press down on the suction cup and lift. You don’t have to press too hard!
- Frame legs are easy to remove from the crate. (Be sure to save the foam packing for re-crating later.)
- The ten panels are pre-assembled into five back-to-back panels. All you have to do is attach the legs. It’s easier to assemble them using two people. You may need to tip and lift the panels a bit to match the holes in the frame legs to the sides of the panels.
- Note that frame legs attach to the outside of the panels.
- Voila! The display is ready for viewing.
- You can modify the display’s floor arrangement.
- When re-packing the display the panels will sink down easily into the crate – you’ll hear a whoosh! Be sure to include the foam packing sheets between panels.
- When re-packing be careful not to scratch frame legs.
- Notice that crate tops and bottoms match at sprayed (black and white) areas. Re-screw the tops on and off they go to their next destination!
- We hope you enjoy the display! And thanks to the crew pictured here – the guys from Lavanway Signs for image color matching, panel printing, frame and crate design and construction, and Nikki Elert, IMLS graduate student, for all of her work on this display.)
