Need mounting instructions and template

The first thing to do is to determine which mounting posts should be installed into the case Locate the holes in the motherboard, and hold the motherboard over the case and see which of the predrilled holes line up. Screw in or snap in the posts/holders in those holes. Remove any posts/holders where they do not line up to the holes in the motherboard; they will cause shorts and damage/destroy the motherboard. Snap in the template into the rectangular hole, and insert the motherboard into the case. Screw in the screws. Do not overtighten!! Connect the cables, and you are done. (This assumes the memory, processor, and cooler were preinstalled on the motherboard)

Can't get rigid zrr8660 screwgun to sink screw more than half way.

Some screwguns have a torque adjustment that slips when adjusted too light. The strongest setting usually has a symbol of a drill bit. Have you tried putting the screw into another piece of wood? If you are going into a very dense wood you may have to predrill hole.

Need assembly manuel for Jenny Lind 012614 where can I find it online?? Every website takes me to another I am very frustrated....didn't think it would be such a ordeal to locate a manuel online???? Is...

Evenflo Jenny Lind Crib has been recalled.

When you call to get the kit to fix the problem (800) 356-2229 you could ask Evenflo directly!

Here are instructions without a manual...

1. Lay the headboard on the floor in front of you with the bracket holes and model number facing you. Use 2 ¾-inch wood screws to attach the L-bracket and the latch bracket to headboard. The L-bracket has 3 holes and attaches to the holes on the lowest section of the headboard. The latch bracket only has 2 holes and goes directly beneath the metal bracket for the mattress that is already attached. It should face toward the center of the headboard. Once you're done, complete the same procedure on the right side of the headboard. Then do the same for the footboard.

2. Stand the headboard up so you can attach the rails to it. First, place the cross dowel (the small piece of wood with a hole in the side of it) into the hole on the underside of the top rung of the rail. Then put a second dowel in the top side of the bottom rung. Line the left rail up with the headboard at a 90-degree angle, placing it in the brackets you just installed, and insert a 2 13/16-inch machine screw into each of the 2 holes on the front side of the headboard (the side that will face outward). Tighten each screw with your screwdriver until it hits the cross dowel. Then turn the cross dowel clockwise to lock it in. Do the same for the right side and then for the footboard.

3. Slide the mattress platform (the bottom of the crib) into the stabilizer rails (easy to distinguish, since they are the same size as the sides of the platform), putting the longer ones on the sides and the shorter ones on the ends. It will slide in easily. Use 5 ¾-inch screws to attach the hanger brackets to the corners of the platform. The holes are predrilled and you can only put the bracket on one way to match them up, so there is little worry that you will attach it wrong.

4. Put the support brackets (the straight, flat ones) on top of the predrilled holes in the underside of the stabilizer rails. Screw them in with ¾-inch wood screws. Then place the hanger brackets in the slots that were preinstalled on the headboard and footboard. Choose the level that will suit you best. Evenflo recommends the top two for infants.

5. Snap a caster (the round disc) on the bottom of each foot of the crib. Check that all your screws are tight to keep your baby safe.

I have a guitar im trying to install new pickups on but they set down inside and mount directly to the wood underneith and i cant keep the springs from falling off this does not use a mounting ring or a...

Try holding the pickup in the cavity in the position you want without the springs. Use a bit smaller than the mounting holes in the pickup to predrill the holes in the body through the pickup holes while you are holding the pickup in place. When you are ready to mount the pickup use a little hot glue on the ends of the springs to hold then in place over the mounting screws on the bottom side of the pickup. With the screws and springs in place on the pickup carefully screw the mounting screws into the predrilled holes in the cavity. Try using a pin vice to hold the drill bit or one of those small drills that you can operate with one hand( your second finger and thumb hold the slider and your index finger does the downward stroke). Here is a link to a really good site:

How to install kwikset door knob with lock

Are the holes in the door? Are you replacing the old lock? Need to know these things, or I will be typing a bunch of stuff you don't need. Most doors come pre-bored. If not, you need 2 bits, One is 2 1/8 inch cup bit, the forstner type is a lot more expensive, and a 1 inch paddle bit, again, the forstner bit is expensive. Measure up the door app 39 inches, unless there is a lock rail on/in the door, then measure to the center of that. Then on the inside of the door, measure back 2 3/8, most locksets now are adj for 2 3/8 or 2 3/4, you can use either one. You can drill either hole first, To drill your one inch hole in the edge of the door sighting along both sides of the door with your eyes crossed so you can make sure you are going straight, you don't want to bust through the side of the door. Then get the big bit out and drill from the mark till you just come through the other side, then back it out and drill from the other side so you don't tear out the hole. Your 1 inch hole should be all the way into the big hole.Then get you chisels, the sharp ones, put the plunger in the one inch hole, nice and straight, then mark the outside with a sharp pencil, cut the line with the chisel then cut out the waste about 1/8 to 3/16 deep, make sure it fits nice and tight, Predrill the two screw holes, or you will split the door.Get the lockset out, the key to the outside, and the button on the inside of what you are locking. Line up the holes, you might have to spin the button to get them to line up, then put in the 2 long screws. Mark the jamb with the striker, To get it right, put the striker on the door, hooked into the latch, mark the edge of the door with a pencil,then put the striker on the jamb, backwards, to the line you just marked, then out line it, use your 1 inch bit to hog out the middle nice and neat, cut the rest out the same way with the chisels, predrill the holes, you should be all set. OH the deadbolt? You didn't mention that, it goes the same way as the lockset, only the hole is smaller, 1 1/2, I think, you will have to check that. Now you know why people call carpenters.

How do I change the way my door opens?

Hi. I can help you. Look carefully at the hinge side of the door and you will see the screw pattern. Now look in the exact same areas on the non hinge side of both the door and the frame and you should see little plactic buttons which pry up and expose screw holes.

As long as you have these buttons/holes you can reverse the swing. If you do not have the predrilled holes on the other side, you can not reverse it. Most can be reversed so I am hoping yours is one of them. Good luck.

Screw holding shelf bracket broke off, leaving much of the screw

the screw is probably a 1/4" srew. go to ace hardware or similar hardware store and tell them your problem and tell them you need a srew extractor. the one you can use in a cordless drill, it will drill and get the screw out in seconds.
