Wood and masonry mounting

Mounting Trellis Hubs

The tensioned cable trellis system is suitable for flat mounting onto either wooden posts or masonry wall surfaces using the mounting screws supplied.

Note : when mounting onto masonry surfaces please drill a hole and insert a plastic wall plug before fastening. If a wall is particularly brittle or old - a chemical resin may be applied to further strengthen the hold.


DIY Installation Instructions

1. Getting Started

It is a good idea to layout your design onto the relevant surface with a pen or chalk prior to drilling any holes, taking factors such as brick spacing into consideration.

Layout Your Project

2. Drill Pilot Holes

The dual thread pin allows direct installation into hardwood timber (such as oak) or if combined with the correct plastic anchor it is attachable to almost any masonry surface. (we recommend a 1/8" or 5/32" drill piece for direct installation or a 5/16" or 3/8" if inserting a plastic anchor).

Drill Pilot Holes

3. Insert Screw Fixing

Screw in the dual thread pins in to place using a hex head key.

Insert Screw Fixings

4. Attach Hubs

Screw the surface mounting hubs onto the dual thread pins. Perfect alignment of the cross hole can be achieved by simply turning the adjustable base plate of your hub in or out, to ensure a secure and rigid fixing.

Attach Hubs

5. Attach Fixed Cable End

Thread your cable through the first hub, so that the fixed cable end can be secured - using a stainless steel nut (supplied). Remember to leave only a small amount of thread, so that as you tension the cable, more thread will be revealed to provide thread for the dome end nut.

Attach Fixed Cable End

6. Measure Your Cable

Place the DIY stud end in place through the other hub. Now simply tension the cable by pulling and align to the spanner flat of the DIY compression fitting. Mark your cable ready for cutting with either a pen or chalk.

Measure Cable Length

7. Cut Your Cable

Cut your cable to required length. We recommend using a set of good Hand Held Cable Cutters to give you a neat and tidy cut.
