Halo Lit Sign Installation Instructions
Sign Parts Names referred to in the Instructions
Tools Needed: Safety Glasses, Tape, Tape Measure, Level, Screws, Drill bits, Screw driver bit
Unroll pattern and tape to wall where letters are to be installed.
Check to make sure letters are level and centered in the area.
There must be access to the back of the wall to connect EZLit Power Link to the EZLit Power Strip. Use a tape that will not damage the wall surface when it is removed. For brick you can use duct tape but remove as soon as done.
Do not level with the bottoms of the letters or edge of paper, use provided level lines only.
Step 2 Drill Holes
Stand Off Mounting Holes are near the center of Letters and Logos
Drill pilot holes through the center of the mark for appropriate fastener.
For wood surfaces we suggest galvanized wood screws. They can be painted to match wall. Concrete, Brick or cinderblock surfaces we suggest Tapcon® Screws.
Your hardware store may suggest another type that will work for your application.
During this step, make sure to precisely drill these holes for proper mounting later.
Center Punch can be used to mark holes on masonry surfaces to keep the drill bit from walking.
Drill a 3/4” hole completely through the wall to the inside of the building.
Step 3 Installing Letters
It is best to remove tape as soon as possible.
On the back of the Letters & Logos there is a sticker, this sticker will tell you the sequence the Letters & Logos are to be installed.
Begin by fastening the cup to the wall using screws appropriate for the wall.
The screw is to be put through hole in the base of the cup and into the pilot hole created from the pattern. During this step, make sure the set screw hole is in a location that can easily be reached for later steps within installation.
It is important in this step to not force the screw into the wall beyond the cup. Let the cup have some mobility in order to make letter installation easier. It should droop approximately 1/8 inch. The combination of stand offs create the sturdiness required for such a mount.
Once fastened, begin putting the Letters or Logos on the wall, making sure to align the posts that extend from the backs of each to the previously mounted cups.
While putting Letters or Logos on the wall, shove the EZLit Power Link through the wall so it can be reached from the inside the building.
Once the Letters or Logos are placed, and the rods are aligned within the cups, screw the set screws into the sides of the cups with the supplied Allen wrench.
We recommend running the rods all the way into the cups, and placing the set screw in the last possible notch within the rod.
This will fully secure the letter to the building.
Step 4 Install Power Strip
On the Back side of the wall, plug each letters in to the EZLit Power Strip and the EZLit Power Supply.
Each Power Link has a colored tag should match the color tag on the Power Strip.
* Apply Dielectric Grease (included with sign) to metal parts of each Plug Connection
Plug the EZLit Power Strip into a 110 volt outlet.
The Power Supply gets warm and should be in the open air.
Do not put the power supply in a container or cover it with combustible materials.
The sign will be on all the time. You can turn them on or off with the switch or purchase a lamp timer at the hardware store.
Power supply must be indoors, it is not weather proof.
A loop of wire should hang down below the outlet.
This will prevent water running down cord and into the socket.
