How to use sign letter locator studs
Snapfix and Simplefix Locators are used to mount flat cut sign letters to shop fascias, walls and sign panels. The male studs are bonded to the rear of sign letters using an appropriate adhesive. Next a paper plan is created using 1:1 scale lettering artwork. The letters with the studs are then placed on the paper plan and each stud makes a mark on the paper plan. This paper plan is then used as a drilling guide for your wall. Once the holes have been drilled the female cups can then be screwed to the wall / sign panel. Finally the Letters can be pushed into place with each male stud snapping into place into the female cups.
