  • [17:14]        Jaime: Hello, how may I help you?
  • [17:17] Customer: Hi, we ordered a projection screen model M135XWH. I realize it does not come with the ceiling mount flanges. We have very limited height from the floor to the ceiling and if we hang chains, I feel that it would not work properly. Also, we have many functions in the same multipurpose room and there will be others that are not supervised and I think hanging from a chain would cause them to try and swing from it. Is there anything we can use to flush mount to the ceiling?
  • [17:19]        Jaime: I can assist you with this.  Do you have on the end caps on your screen?
  • [17:19]        Jaime: As far as I know, this sized screen has the end flanges with the holes for flush mounting to the ceiling’s trusses
  • [17:20]        Jaime: it’s actually the screens that are smaller than 120″ that have the D-rings
  • [17:21] Customer: It has D rings attached to it and the holes look as if they only will work for the walls as it seems that direction only.
  • [17:22]        Jaime: How high is your ceiling?
  • [17:22]        Jaime: from the floor
  • [17:22] Customer: about 7′ 3″.
  • [17:22]        Jaime: you don’t have to use chains. You can use J-hook screws to hand the screen on the rings
  • [17:23]        Jaime: I still don’t understand how you have a 135″ with D-rings
  • [17:23]        Jaime: Maybe that ring is removable
  • [17:23]        Jaime: …or you may have a smaller screen than anticipated
  • [17:26] Customer: I didn’t understand why it came with the D rings either. I can try it. Again I ordered the 135 diagonal, but it came in at 10’6″ width. I think maybe we can try the J hook installation. I didn’t think of that. We do have about 2 weeks before we actually need it up. Thanks for your answers.
  • [17:27]        Jaime: ok, sounds good. The J-hooks are the way to go here is a video for another brand of manual screen we have. The latter half of this video demonstrates the basics on hanging the screen
  • [17:27] Customer: Perfect, thanks for the help.
  • [17:27]        Jaime: thank you for contacting us today
