Instructions for Installation of Illuminated Cap and Sign

If the Address Sign is already hanging, remove sign and go to step 4.

  1. Select the location for the Address Sign (plaque) in an easy to drill spot (recommended on the front exterior garage wall) with easy access to an electrical outlet in the interior.
  2. Place Address Sign against the wall at the desire location and mark in the wall the location of the supporting screws (black screws 10 x 1.5”) (see Figure 1).
  3. Drill two holes at the marks with a ¼” drill bit, at least 1 1/2” in depth, and tap in the plastic anchors (see Figure 2).
  4. Drill a fed-through hole in the center (approximately) of the two plastic anchors (see Figure 2).
  5. Fasten one screw halfway in one of the plastic anchors.
  6. Hang up the Illuminated Cap on the screw with the black loop (in the left or the right bottom corners) (see Figure 3).
  7. Feed power wire attached to the Illuminated Cap through from the exterior to the interior wall (see Figure 3).
  8. Remove the Illuminated Cap, screw and cut black loop, leaving the power wire in the wall.
  9. Hold the Address Sign and slide the Illuminated Cap behind the address sign (make sure the wire goes into slot in back of the Illuminated Cap), and fasten (loose) the address sign (see Figure 4).
  10. Carefully pull excess wire from behind the wall.
  11. Tighten the screws.
  12. Connect the power wire attached to the Illuminated Cap to the wire of the adapter, and fasten connection with the two marrettes provided.
  13. Route power wire toward electrical outlet. Secure wire to the interior wall and plug in adapter.
