Method 3: Standoff Installation – Recessed Fixing Screw

Use the Standoff Installation method to install hd EZ lock when the fixing screw above or below your HDMI Input is recessed and there is not enough surface area to attach the mounting adapter. This is common with Sony TVs. We recommend that you review the Standard Installation method prior to proceeding.

To reduce the risk of electronic shock to yourself or others, or damage to your equipment, unplug your component from its power source before beginning to install hd EZ lock.

Slide the Main Body into the gap in the Mounting Adapter. Insert the included 6/32″ set screw into the threaded insert in the Main Body and, using your fingers to guide the Main Body, use the 1/16″ hex key to tighten the set screw tight enough to grip your HDMI Cable.

Do not over tighten. Tighten until you feel resistance, then an additional two to three turns is enough to hold firmly in place.
