So the instructions provided by Umbra were not helpful. I did not receive the paper ruler that was referenced in the instructions. Luckily I'm baby McGyver and was able to knock this out in under 10 mins.
Here's what you'll need to avoid frustration. (7 things) Pics included. 8 steps
1 piece of tissue
1 dry erase marker (something that's easy to wipe off walls)
1 tape measure
1 power drill
1 small drill bit for screw
1 long drill bit for wall plug
1 Mr clean magic eraser (you are probably going to scuff or mark up the wall, this helps a ton)
Step 1 - Position the wall mount where you want it and dab the wall on each side with a marker. Don't worry if your dots aren't perfect. Use a tape measure to make sure things are evenly spaced to your liking.
Step 2 - Fill the long U-shaped portions (not the circular portions) of the holes behind the wall mount with tissue. The tissue should be about the same diameter or a little larger as your screw.
Step 3- Saturate these pieces of tissue with your marker color.
Step 4 - Carefully align your wall mount in between the 2 dots on the wall and gently stamp the wall mount to the wall. You may mess up, it's ok, wipe off the marks with the magic eraser and try again.
Step 5 - Once your wall mount stamps are how you want, get your drill, long drill bit, and wall plugs.
Step 6 - Drill the holes in the wall for the wall plugs. Use a hammer or the back of your drill to press the wall plugs in.
Step 7 - Get your drill and drill bit for your screws and screw them into the wall plugs, leaving about 3-4 screw spirals showing. Use the magic eraser as needed for marker Mark's or scuffs.
Step 8 - Take the tissue out of the holes in the wall mount and carefully place your wall mount over the screws then pull down to lock it in place.
