Figure 1 shows wall hanger positioned for hanging the Right Radial Base on the right side of the hanger as in Figure 2.

The Wall Hanger stands off of the wall 5/8" to allow for free L-tab movement.

 

The Wall Hanger can be mounted at any desirable height. 

Figure 2

Figure 2 shows the Right Radial Base hanging on the right side of the Wall Hanger and is most appropriate where there is more space available on the right side of the hanger.  The Right Radial Base hangs off to the right . 

 

The Wall Hanger would be mounted this way when:

 

a) The Wall Hanger must be mounted on the wall to the right of a cabinet.

 

b) The wall hanger must be mounted in the corner of the room where the wall is to the left of the hanger.

 

c) Personal preference.

Hanging the Right Radial Base on the right side of the Wall Hanger allows 3 more Cardio-TRAP components to be stored with the Right Radial Base.

To hang the Right Radial Base on the left side of the Wall Hanger (Figure 3), roll the Wall hanger over.

***We recommend that a maintenance technician be issued a work order to perform the task of mounting the Wall Hanger unit to the wall in your lab.  This can avoid unnecessary holes in the lead lined wall of your lab***

 

Tools needed to properly complete the task:

---Drill with #2 Phillips head bit

---Level

---Stud Finder

---Tape Measure

---Phillips Screw Driver

---Pencil

 

The holes in the Wall Hanger are 16" on center so the holes should line up with studs behind the sheetrock wall in your lab. 

 

Follow the steps below to make attaching the wall hanger to the wall go as smoothly as possible.

1)  Determine where the best place is to mount the Wall Hanger based on the explanations in Figure 2 & 3.

2)  Locate the studs behind the sheetrock and measure them to determine if they are 16" on center.

3)  If the studs are successfully located, get someone to hold the wall hanger in line with the studs and hang the Right Radial Base from the Wall Hanger to determine the desired height.  Mark this location with a pencil.

4)  Select one top hole in the Wall Hanger and use the fastener in Figure 4 to fasten the Wall Hanger to the stud.  ----Don't tighten the screw all the way down yet, you'll need it loose for step 5.

5)  The wall hanger should be hanging by its corner.  Swing the Wall Hanger up and lay a level across the top of the Wall Hanger to locate the preferred spot to put the second screw.

6)  Put the second screw in the other top hole of the Wall Hanger and tighten them both down by hand.  It is easy to overtighten the screws with a drill.  Hand tightening the screws with a screw driver won't fatigue or strip out the threads.

Figure 4 is the fastener to use when studs are located.  Do Not use this screw in place of the screw provided with the "Toggle Anchor" system in Figure 5. 

 

If the studs can't be located or can't be located close enough to where you need the Wall Hanger to be, then use the fasteners provided in Figure 5.  (See instructions below)

 

It may be necessary to use the self-tapping screws in Figure 4 and the "Toggle Anchors" in Figure 5, together to hold the Wall Hanger to the wall.
