HOW TO HANG AND FIX YOUR GIANT 3D WALL CLOCK IN 5 STEPS
You recently purchased a giant wall clock, or 3D wall clock and you don't know how to hang it? Maybe you've just heard about this type of clock and want to buy one? You've come to the right place!
CHOOSE YOUR LOCATION
The first thing to do, of course, is to choose the location where you are going to mount your 3D wall clock. We advise you to take your time and check that the measurements correspond to your available space.
You don't want to realize during the installation of your clock, that you don't have the space to put all the elements in place.
Once the location is chosen, mark the vertical and horizontal axes, noting them with a thin pencil line. Bravo! You now know exactly where the centre of the clock will be placed.
You can also find more tips for choosing your clock on our guide!

INSTALL THE CENTRAL ELEMENT OF THE GIANT CLOCK
All our 3D clocks are sold with a pattern, which helps you to stay upright during the installation of your dial and especially to define the distance at which you are going to fix the numbers of your clock.
You are now going to place your pattern at the exact place on your wall that you have previously defined thanks to the horizontal and vertical axes.

The pattern will then be replaced by the central element, i.e. the mechanism that turns the hands.

CHOOSE THE DIAMETER OF YOUR CLOCK
Once your boss is set, it's easy! Thanks to the graduated band, you will now choose the diameter of your clock, i.e. the distance at which you will fix the numbers that will indicate the time!
This choice generally depends on the space you have on your wall, but it can also be an aesthetic choice.
Once you have chosen the diameter of your future clock, simply cut the pattern to the right size!

ALIGN THE SEGMENTS WITH THE PATTERN
On the pattern, you will notice lines arranged in a circular and precise manner. Each number on your dial must be aligned with these lines!
Using the graduated band (which is now cut to the perfect diameter for you), make a small mark in front of each of the lines on the central pattern. These small marks give you the exact location to place your elements.

All you have to do is fix the numbers on the marks, in the right order of course, starting with 12 at the very top.
You can also replace the pattern in the center, by the main mechanism, and fix the hands on it following the instructions, which will be different according to the clock you will have chosen!
