Tips & Tricks: Installing a sign without help
Posted on Monday, July 10th, 2023
Here’s another simple method that I use to install a sign on a wall. I often work alone, so it is especially helpful in that case, but it works great when you have help, too.
On the wall, work out the location of any of the sign’s corners. Drill a hole in the wall where the fastener in that corner will be located, say an inch in and an inch up (or whatever measurements you prefer) from where that corner of the sign will be. Drill a corresponding hole in the corner of the sign.
Lift that corner of the sign to align with the hole with no concern for keeping it level. Have a screw waiting in the sign’s hole, pushed through the sign to the head so you can use it as a hole-finder.
