Hi guys,

just got miself a projector screen & wondering what fixings i should use to wall mount it. It is heavy so don't want to put screws etc in that are not up to the job.... lol ie screen falls down.

pic of screen here..... HD 108" 16:9 Manual Projection Projector DLP LCD Screen | eBay

There wasn't any instructions with the screen, looks like it's just one screw either side but thinking they need to be pretty big.

any advice gratefully appreciated.

cheers

Steve....

I just used 2 hooks and 2 small pieces of chain and screwed the hooks into ceiling joist and then hung on the 2 small chains
