[19:44]        Johnny: Hello how may I assist you today?

[19:44] Customer: Hi, I want to know how to hang the projector screen on wall.

[19:45]        Johnny: Sure, for which model screen?

[19:45] Customer: M139UWX (139” 16:10 common computer/commercial) manual screen.

[19:45] Customer: Maybe M135XWH2 (135” 16:9 most common TV aspect ratio).

[19:45]        Johnny: This screen does not come with any mounting brackets, but you can still do a wall or ceiling installation by using the screen’s end caps. To begin, here is a video on the proper way to install your screen:

[19:45]        Johnny: To wall mount the screen all you would need is to run any screw in your wall, then you hang the screens end cap onto that screw. Here is an instructional video for wall mounting an electric screen we make that has the same kind of casing:

[19:46]        Johnny: To ceiling mount the screen all you need is to run a j-hook to your ceiling, then you would hook that j-hook to the top portion of the screens end caps. Here is an example of that:

[19:46]        Johnny: The only reason for the L-brackets is if you’re going to wall mount the screen, and you need the screen to be further away from the wall.

[19:47] Customer: Thanks for the videos, this is exactly what I was looking for.

[19:48] Customer: Do you also have any document to teach me step by step?

[19:49]        Johnny: sure, see user guide from this link here:

[19:55] Customer: ok

[19:55] Customer: May I know the weight of M135XWH2

[19:56]        Johnny: That will be 32 lbs.
