So your new to the Christmas Light game, you ordered your CG1500 and when it arrives you scratch your head wondering how in the heck the power supply will mount. We've all been there, and the answer is simple - you buy a mounting plate. Now we have some really cool mounting plates for the CG1500 like our Standard Double Decker, or our Double Decker Full Size but maybe you are a purist, maybe you dont' have many components to mount, or maybe you don't like fancy things.
So here it is, the basic Single Level CG1500 mounting plate - Only ours is fully customizable using the JDeation Designer!
Please read these instructions fully and carefully before beginning your assembly. A little bit of learning and planning can make the difference between a easy great assembly and a hard mistake prone assembly.
The following assembly instructions contain both design specific and general assembly instruction which may not be specific to your design.

|Screw Size||Drill Size||Typical uses|
|#6||5/32"||Self tapping screws for mounting to enclosure|
|#8||3/16"||3" and 4" Bolts for P.S. and Shelves|
|#10||7/32"||6" Bolts for P.S. and Shelves|
NOTE: Occasionally the fabrication process will remove one or both sides. If you can see through the acrylic clearly then the film is gone.
Depending on the design, power supplies are either attached via mounting brackets, or screwed directly to the bottom plate. If your design requires the power supplies to be screwed to the bottom plate, attach them now using M3 or M4 screws.
