Default What's the difficulty level for assembling a ~120" Projector Screen ?

Hi guys ... So I ordered my Home Theater equipment late last year, but didn't get round to putting everything together till last weekend ... It took my like 2 days to setup majority of the stuff (cut cables, connect everything, setup 7 channel speakers with dual PS12-NSDs, receiver, projector, other equipment) ..

The only thing remaining is my Da-Lite HD Progressive 1.3 Gain 16:9 119" Cinema Contour Fixed Frame Screen, which I got from AVScience ... I still need to assemble this up, but it looked a little intimidating to me when I peeked into the packaging this last weekend

I plan to (hopefully) assemble it this coming weekend, but want to know in advance, how easy/hard is it to setup a projector screen, as I've never done it before ... Do I need a professional, or can I do it on my own .. ? I had a quick look inside the packaging for any assembling instructions, but couldn't find any .. Although I may need to move things around a little to search for it in my detail ..

So any advice here would be appreciated !

it's easier with a second person...

all you really need is a drill, a screwdriver (or bit for the drill) a stud finger and a level + some grunt labor to hold it steady.... it ain't hard

As above.

I was stubborn and did mine myself. It is not that hard. Just be careful for a few hours.

Is there anything I can do which can damage the screen, permanently ?

This would be my first attempt at projector screen installing, so I want to avoid any common mistakes ..

Yep. There is plenty of things that can wreck it. Just be careful for a while when installing. I wouldn't recommend doing it alone. My previous post was because I have done many before.

No sharp objects. Nothing that scrape. Try and keep fingers off (oil from fingers can effect the image).

If you do need to clean. Get a very hot wet micro fiber cloth. Squeeze as much water out as possible. Lightly wipe. Not circle motions. Just straight and dry with a wipe from a Lens cloth. Works well for me.

My screen is now 6 years old. Has zero marks on it. I dust lightly with a duster once every couple of months and lightly vacume the edges. Boy has it served me well and with respect it will continue to.
