Step by step installation guide.





Begin assembling your Sidewalk Sign by getting the two legs and placing them opposite each other so that the keyed legs face each other.




Thread the main bolt through the end cap, legs and into the horizontal brace. Do this on both sides. Do not overtighten as this will stop the legs from opening. The legs should open and close now. Make sure when they are open the bottom of the legs sit flat on the ground. Note: Do up tightly to ensure the legs stay open.






Apply your decals or vinyl to the display board. Simply take to your local sign writer and they will be able to apply a vinyl decal of your artwork to the A-Frame Sign.




Place one leather strap over the horizontal brace and use the display board bolt and nut to fix the display board in place. Make sure there is a washer on each side of the leather strap. Do this on both sides of the display board. The leather straps will sit in the groves of the horizontal brace. 




Your Pavement Sign is now ready to be used. To store the sign, push the legs together to close them.

Do you also brand the A-Frame sign's or do you only sell them as blanks?
