Mario Complex Mounting Instructions

It’s important to read watch our videos on basic mounting instructions before continuing on. They will help you determine what tools you will need and also about how to mount the individual planks and Escape Hatch.

Your Mario Complex will include these pieces:

  • 1 x Escape Hatch Shelf Top
  • 8 x Mounting Plank Bottom
  • 6 x Mounting Plank Top
  • 2 x 3-Grommet Fabric Piece
  • 2 x 5-Grommet Fabric Piece
  • 2 x Mario Fabric Piece
  • 1 x Mario Decal Set

For this complex you will need four studs spaced out at 16″ from center to center.  Start by marking the center of each of the four studs you’re using.

Starting from the furthest stud on the right, mount your first plank bottom. Drill pilot holes into the wall where the two screw holes are on the metal bracket. Attach the plank to the wall with two top mounting screws (WS92), then drill the bottom mounting screw (WS93) into the pre-drilled hole on the bottom of the plank.

Next, attach the bottom-right corner of one piece of the Mario fabric, with the print facing the outside, onto the plank. Attach one of the five-grommet-long sections of fabric to the plank, leaving a section with two grommets on each side. Install a    plank top to hold the fabric in place with two furniture bolts (FS92).

Hold the grommets at the end of the fabric going to the left on another plank. Stretch that fabric to the left and mount the plank on the next stud. Remove the fabric and add the bottom-left corner of the Mario fabric to the plank. Replace the fabric and attach a piece of 3-grommet fabric onto the second plank, to the left. Finally, install a plank top to hold the fabric in place.

Hold the grommets at the end of the fabric going to the left on a third plank. Stretch the fabric to the left and mount the third plank into the next stud. Remove the fabric, add the bottom-right corner of the Mario fabric to the plank, and replace the 3-grommet fabric. Install a plank top to hold the fabric in place.

Mount the fourth mounting plank into the center of your left-most stud, attaching the bottom left corner of the second Mario fabric piece to the plank. Next, attach the right end of the second 5-grommet piece of fabric to the mounting plank. Install a plank top to hold the fabric in place.

Mount the fifth mounting plank 16” above the fourth mounting plank, stretch over the piece of 5-grommet fabric to the mounting plank so that the middle set of grommets attaches to the plank, then attach the top left corner of the Mario fabric to the plank. Install a plank top to hold the fabric in place.

Hold the end of the 5-grommet piece of fabric to the sixth mounting plank and stretch it to the right, mounting it into the stud there. Attach the second piece of 3-grommet fabric (which will extend to the right) and the top right-hand corner of the Mario fabric to the plank. Install a plank top to hold the fabric in place.

Hold the end of the 3-grommet piece of fabric to the seventh mounting plank, stretch it to the right, and mount the plank into the stud there.

Using the 18” Escape Hatch to measure by holding it to the plank, mount the eighth mounting plank. Remove the Escape Hatch and stretch the hanging end of the 5-grommet fabric section from the first plank to attach to the eighth mounting plank.

Attach the piece of Mario fabric on the right side to the seventh and eighth mounting planks.

Finally, attach the Escape Hatch over the seventh and eighth mounting planks with furniture bolts (FS92).

Cut around the vinyl, peel the backside off to expose the adhesive surface and attach to the wall.
