Mounting Instructions


 

Using Velcro Dots

Included with your DryMap is a set of 8 Adhesive Velcro Dots. We recommend using 4 dots on small maps, 6 on medium, and all 8 on large maps. Cut each individual dot (or as many as needed) from the 2 strips provided. Our logo serves as a guide for mounting your map. Use it to level your DryMap, as the logo should look parallel to the ground once mounted. For proper installation follow these steps:

  • Wipe the areas where you'd like to place the dots, in the back side of the map, using a cotton ball with alcohol
  • Wipe any excess alcohol with a dry cotton ball
  • Grab one dot and remove one side of the clear paper, without touching the sticky part of the dot
  • Add the dot to the desired/cleaned area in the back of the map
  • Remove the remaining clear paper without touching the sticky part of the dots
  • Wipe the surface where the map is going to be mounted
  • Press the map against the surface and hold for 1 minute
  • Apply pressure in the the ares where the dots are located
  • Let it stay in the wall for 15 minutes before removing
  • Remove carefully

 

Using the Adhesive Sawtooth Hanger

Included with your DryMap is also an Adhesive Sawtooth Hanger. We recommend using this Sawtooth Hanger only on small and medium size maps (it can be used in large size maps, but we recommend screwing larger maps directly to the wall). Our logo serves as a guide for mounting your map. Use it to level your DryMap, as the logo should look parallel to the ground once mounted. For proper installation follow these steps:

  • Find the center of your map holding it with two fingers, one in the front and one in the back of the map
  • Make sure that you find the center, where the logo looks leveled and parallel to the ground
  • Wipe the area where you'd like to place the hanger, in the back side of the map, using a cotton ball with alcohol
  • Wipe any excess alcohol with a dry cotton ball
  • Remove the adhesive cover from the hanger without touching the sticky part of the hanger
  • Add the hanger to the map, and apply pressure for 30 seconds.
  • Let it rest for 30 minutes before hanging
  • Hang and remove carefully

     

    Other Options

    Although we include the most common easy-to-use options, there are many other ways to mount or display your DryMap. Here are a few ideas and other options.

    • Plate holder (offers easy access)
    • Adhesive 3M mounting squares (as a more permanent hanging option)
    • Adhesive magnetic strips (to mount on your fridge or any other metal surfaces)
    • Screw directly to the wall (a more secure solution for larger/heavier maps)
