ceiling, or sus pend ed below the ceiling. The lift should be supported by four
½" thread ed mount ing rods. If ceiling recessed, the entire unit (including
the projector) should set approximately 1½" above the ﬁ n ished ceiling in its
“stored” position. The threaded rods should pass through the corner mount ing
ﬂ anges and be secured by nuts above and below. Use a thread locking com-
pound such as Loctite
#242 (provided). The unit should then be guy wired or
blocked to pre vent swing ing.
