  • Drill holes in the marked positions then insert the wall plugs into the holes.

  • Then, being careful not to over tighten, secure the mounting base using the screws supplied.

  • Fix the detector to the mounting plate, aligning the plate’s two projections with the two keyhole slots in the detector.

  • Activate the alarm by aligning the marks at the side of the bracket and the alarm unit.

  • Turn the alarm unit clockwise until the snap lock engages.
