Rotofast Wall Anchor Installation in 45 seconds

What You Will Need

The only tools you’ll need for the installation are:

  1. Drill
  2. Screwdriver
  3. Pencil
  4. Painters tape 
  5. Tape Measure 
  6. Level

Step 1: Prep the Walls

Take a tape measure and measure the length and width of the wall that you want to cover. Make sure the wall is clean and free from dust. You can wipe the wall down with a damp cloth if necessary. You may want to paint the wall if it is bare drywall. The paint will help the soundproofing.

Step 2: Install red marking pins into pre-installed Rotofast anchors

On the back of the panel there are pre-installed red marking pins. Get the red marking pin and slide it inside the panel until it is fully inserted. Make sure the aiming end is facing you. Once you have done that, put the red marking pin back in the box so you have enough for all the acoustic panels.

Step 3: Mark the top of your panel with a "T" for orientation

Find the top of the panel and mark it with a T. You can do this with a sharpie or a pen. This T represents the top of the panel and it will let you know how to place the panel on the wall. The T needs to face the same way each time.

Step 4: Using painters tape mark on the wall where corners of panel should align (Use a level for precision)

You can use a level to make sure the acoustic panels are perfectly level. If you don't have a level you can use the edge of the wall. The edge of the wall will not be perfectly straight but it will be straight enough for the acoustic panels to be level. You can use a ruler or a yardstick to make sure the acoustic panels are straight. Now that you have the acoustic panels as level as possible, put some painters tape on the wall. You want to put the tape about an inch or two away from the edge of the wall. Put the tape right where the top of the panel will be. You will want two pieces of tape on each corner of the panel. Make sure the tape is level. Now you are ready to put the panel on the wall.

Step 5: Install anchors into the wall if there are no studs

If there are no studs in your wall then you will need to install some anchors. Take one anchor and screw it into the wall. You can use an electric drill or a manual screwdriver for this. Make sure the anchor is screwed in all the way until it stops. You may need a partner to help you with this. Now you can put the panel on the wall. 

Step 6: Screw ratchets into the wall. Make sure they can turn freely

Take one screw ratchet and screw it into one of the anchors that you just installed. You need to make sure that the screw ratchet can turn freely. If it can't turn freely then you need to loosen the screw. Put the panel up against the wall and slide the panel down the screw ratchet until the screw ratchet is tight against the wall.

Step 7: Place panel onto screws. Push tight using your palm

Now that the panel is on the wall you can put in the rest of the screws. Make sure the screws are all tight. Once the screws are in you can push the panel against the wall with your palm. This will help the panel to be tight and firmly in place.
