How do I use the Digital Decorating Kit Plus projector mounting bracket?

The Digital Decorating Kit Plus mounting bracket gives you more options for displaying your decorations. The mounting bracket can do the following things:

  • Increase ventilation under the projector when used horizontally
  • Stand your projector at a 90° angle for a vertical projection
  • Connect the mounting bracket to a tripod in either vertical or horizontal orientation

You must use a tripod that is rated to support at least 5 pounds to support the weight of the projector. It is not recommend to use mini desktop tripods, which may cause your projector to tip over.

Mounting Bracket Accessories

To connect your Mounting Bracket, first remove the bracket itself from its protective sleeve. Then, locate the resealable bag containing your mounting bracket accessories. Altogether, you should have the following accessories:

  • 1 Tripod Bracket (A) (the flat piece of metal that supports the projector)
  • 1 Tripod Mount (B) (the round, silver-color piece which connects to the tripod)
  • 3 Tripod Mount Screws (C) (short, silver-color screws)
  • 4 Bracket Screws (D) (with spacers)
  • 4 Silicone Spacers (E) (attached to the bracket screws)
  • 2 Bracket Screws (F) (without spacers)

Step One - Attaching the Tripod Mount to the Bracket

With the 4 black nylon pads facing upwards, install the circular Tripod Mount (B) beneath the Tripod Bracket (A).

Using a Phillips-head screwdriver, attach the Tripod Mount (B) with the 3 Tripod Mount Screws (C).

Step Two: Attaching the Bracket to the Projector

There are two options for attaching the Bracket - Horizontal Mounting or Vertical Mounting.

Warning - do not connect mount while projector is powered on. Make sure the projector is powered down completely before connecting the mount.

Option 1 - Horizontal Mounting

  1. Remove the Silicone Spacer (E) from each Bracket Screw (D).
  2. Insert a Bracket Screw (D) up through the Tripod Bracket (A).
  3. Position the Silicone Spacer (E) onto the Bracket Screw (D) until the Spacer sits snugly on the top of the Tripod Bracket.
  4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 with remaining three (3) Bracket Screws (D).
  5. Thread each Bracket Screw (D) into the projector one at a time. Attach all 4 screws loosely before finally tightening each one.

Option 2 - Vertical Mounting

  1. Rotate the projector 90° ao that the lens is on the bottom end of the projector.
  2. Position the Tripod Bracket (A) so that the empty two Bracket holes are on the same front-facing side as the lens.
  3. Remove the Silicone Spacer (E) from each Bracket Screw (D).
  4. Insert a Bracket Screw (D) up through the Tripod Bracket.
  5. Position the Silicone Spacer (E) onto the Bracket Screw (D) until the Spacer sits snugly on the top of the Tripod Bracket.
  6. Repeat steps 2 and 3 with remaining three (3) Bracket Screws (D).
  7. Thread each Bracket Screw (D) into the projector one at a time. Attach all 4 screws loosely before finally tightening each one.
  8. Insert the remaining two (2) Bracket Screws (F) into the empty holes on the Tripod Bracket (A). These screws can be adjusted to change the tilt of your projector.

Step Three (Optional): Attaching a Tripod

The Tripod Mount (B) can accept any standard 1/4 inch tripod adapter screw. The inner thread of the Tripod Mount (B) can be removed to accommodate a 3/8" tripod adapter screw.

To use a tripod, just screw the Tripod Mount (B) onto your tripod's adapter screw in a clockwise direction until it is snug.

Exercise caution using a tripod. If your tripod is not rated to hold a weight of at least 5 pounds, it can easily tip over and your projector can be damaged. If possible, secure your tripod to the ground using additional weights, like a sandbag, to prevent your tripod from tipping over if bumped.
