DIY Light Box Sign Kits - Instructions

Please read the following instructions on how to put together your new lighted sign kit when it arrives at your door:

1. Arrange the four aluminum side pieces how you would like them to layout.
2. Begin at the upper left corner, and attach each corner piece to the adjacent side pieces. Continue clockwise until all four corners are fastened and the four sides are all attached and laying "on end".
3. After the corners are attached the next step is to attach the transformer. Find a blank spot along the frame that is within reach of the (2) leads that are coming from the LED light fixture. Fasten the transformer onto the frame with metal screws.
4. Pull the high voltage (120V) wire (black cord) from the pre-cut hole in the side of the frame and through the frame to the transformer. Fasten the (2) wire leads to the transformer with the screws on the transformer.
5. Attach the two low voltage wires from the LED light fixtures to the transformer with two included wire nuts.
6. Install the photo sensor onto the frame and wire it to the lights per the included wiring diagram.
7. Install the on/off switch onto the frame and wire it to the lights per the included wiring diagram.
8. After the wiring is completed test out the lighting, switch, and photosensor to make sure everything is working correctly.
9. Install the rear panel (either a back panel or a second translucent panel, depending on your order) to the frame, and "snap" the corner brackets onto the frame to attach the panel to the frame.
10. Install the front panel to the frame and "snap" the corner brackets onto the frame to attach the panel to the game.
