How to mount the TD52
The TD52 can be mounted using a flush mount or it can be mounted using a mounting bracket.
In both conditions the front cover of the TD52 should be removed in order to access the screw holes that will allow it to be installed on a mount.
To remove the front cover of the TD52:
using a T10 security torx screw driver remove the security screws located at the bottom of the front cover
once the screws are removed proceed to slide the front cover up and then out
when the front cover is removed there are four screw holes in each corner of the TD52. These screw holes will be used to install the TD52 to the mount.
Mounting the TD52 using a flush mount
The TD52 comes with a flush mount in the box. The flush mount can be used for the following conditions:
