Watch the movie....just 42 seconds!
Installation takes about 10 minutes, most all of which is waiting for glue to set, during which you can do other things. Figure on about 30 minutes if it's your very first time.
Where to put it?
Put the alarm on your equipment, then tether it elsewhere. (Avoid putting the alarm in a fixed place then tether it to your stuff; you want thieves to face having to take the alarm.) Exactly where? Any flat surface big enough for the alarm. It must be flat, not "almost" flat. Don't block air vents or access doors – once glued, this plate is never coming off. Surface prep? Good idea. Grind or sand plastic, and if it's painted metal, sand off the paint.
How much glue? Use 1/4 of the 25 ml cartridge. Sometimes our distributors supply a different size cartridge. Check it!
Mix REALLY WELL. Then mix a bit more. The glue smells weird and strong, but it's relatively harmless – the same material is used surgically to glue bones, and in dentistry to bond dental work. The smell goes away as soon as the glue sets – a few minutes.
Spread the glue between the two strips of tape.
Peel off the the tape backing.
Press the plate down firmly. The adhesive tape on each end ensures that the plate is set to a precise height. (The glue actually needs a bit of a gap to work best.)
Critical...or your alarm won't fit
Scrape away excess. With experience you can use less glue, but be sure you cover the entire bottom of the plate.
Wait 7+ minutes!!
....before you attach the alarm box. If you rush and mount the alarm before the glue has set, you'll NEVER get it off again. Fill the time doing steps 8, 9, and 10.
Capture something fixed or hard to move.
One end of the long cable plugs in here. The other end will plug into the alarm.
If what you need to capture is bigger than the small loop, then make a lasso like this.
Have at least 7 minutes elapsed since gluing the plate?
Then follow this sequence left to right.
Plug in the free end of the long cable.
The key both physically locks the alarm onto the mounting plate and arms the alarm. You can test it if you want – just unplug any of the sensor connections. Have the key ready – once triggered, only a key will shut down the siren.
