Nameplate Installation Guide
Every Housenama nameplate is delivered along with the accessories required to install the same. While we'd advise you to call a carpenter to complete the installation, here are the steps to be followed if you choose to do it yourself.
If your name plate has come with screws and stainless steel stand-offs, here are the steps you need to follow:
- Once you have decided on the location, position the name-plate on the wall and make sure it's level. We recommend using a leveler.
- Since the nameplates come with pre-drilled holes for the standoffs to pass through, use it as a stencil and mark the position of the screw holes on the wall with a pencil.
- Pre-drill the wall with a pilot bit. You can choose to use a wall anchor (also called a wall plug) if you are unable to drill directly in to the surface.
- After the holes have been drilled, install each standoff base with a screwdriver or drill. Be careful not to over-tighten it (especially if you are using a power drill).
- Position your nameplate over the standoff bases, and tighten the standoff caps over the nameplate, sandwiching the nameplate between the standoff base and its cap. This step can simply be done by hand and does not need any equipment.
If your nameplate has come with screws and dome caps, here are the steps you need to follow:
- Once you have decided on the location, position the nameplate on the wall and make sure it's level. We recommend using a leveler.
- Pre-drill the wall with a pilot bit right through the holes in the nameplate.
- After the holes have been drilled, you can fix the plate with the provided screws - either with a screwdriver or drill. You can then add the dome caps to the screw head.
If your nameplate has keyhole slots or some sort of hook at the back, you will need to drill screws in to the wall while keeping a portion of it's length exposed and available for hanging.
