Attaching the TouchWindow

After receiving the TouchWindow®, you want to attach it to the computer monitor correctly. The remainder of this note describes the steps.

The TouchWindow® attaches to the monitor case, not the screen. Before attaching the TouchWindow® to your computer's monitor, clean the monitor case. If needed, consult the documentation that came with the monitor or computer for detailed cleaning instructions.

After cleaning the monitor case, follow the instructions for the TouchWindow® that you received:

Attaching the 15" TouchWindow® (Flat Monitor)
  1. Remove the paper backing from the rough halves of the Velcro® strips.
  2. Attach the strips to the four corners of the back surface of the TouchWindow®. (The strips can be attached either horizontally along the top and bottom or vertically along the sides.)
  3. Position the TouchWindow® in front of the monitor to ensure that the Velcro® strips fit on the monitor frame.
  4. Attach the soft halves of the Velcro® strips to the strips attached in Step 2 and remove the paper backing to expose the adhesive.
  5. Position the TouchWindow® over the monitor and press the TouchWindow® firmly to the monitor. The TouchWindow® is properly attached.

    NOTE: Do not remove the TouchWindow® for at least eight (8) hours to allow the adhesive to set firmly.
Attaching the 15" TouchWindow® (Slightly Curved Monitor)
  1. Remove the paper backing from the rough halves of the Velcro® strips.
  2. Center and attach two Velcro® strips along both the top and bottom of the back surface of the TouchWindow®.
  3. Position the TouchWindow® in front of the monitor to ensure that the Velcro® strips will fit on the monitor frame.
  4. To prevent rocking of the TouchWindow®, determine the best position for the rubber bumpers.
  5. Remove the paper backing from the rubber bumpers and attach the bumpers along the sides in the places selected in Step 4.
  6. Attach the soft halves of the Velcro® strips to those attached in Step 2 and remove the paper backing to expose the adhesive.
  7. Position the TouchWindow® over the monitor and press the TouchWindow® firmly to the monitor. The TouchWindow® is properly attached.

    NOTE: Do not remove the TouchWindow® for at least eight (8) hours to allow the adhesive to set firmly.
Attaching the 15" TouchWindow (Sharply-Curved Monitor)
  1. On a clean, flat surface, place the TouchWindow® face down with its top edge facing away from you.
  2. Position the monitor adapter rails (two long rails included in the TouchWindow® box) on the back of the TouchWindow® frame before removing the paper backing from the two-sided tape. Each rail should be placed along one side of the TouchWindow® with its curved surface slanting down toward the center of the TouchWindow®.
  3. Position each rail so its top edge is flush with the outside edge of the TouchWindow® frame.

    NOTE: If the monitor case curves inward, switch the rails so their curved surfaces slant down toward the outside of the TouchWindow®.
  4. Remove the paper backing from the rails and attach the rails to the TouchWindow® in the positions determined in Step 2.
  5. Remove the paper backing from the rough halves of the Velcro® strips and attach a piece of the Velcro® to the end of each rail.
  6. Attach the soft halves of the Velcro® strips to the rough halves and position the TouchWindow® over the monitor. The TouchWindow® should be square with the monitor and, in most cases, the top of the TouchWindow® should be parallel to the top of the monitor.
  7. Ensure that the entire monitor screen displays within the frame of the TouchWindow® and that the TouchWindow® does not block access to the disk drive, buttons or switches.
  8. Remove the paper backing from the soft halves of the Velcro® and press the TouchWindow® firmly to the monitor. The TouchWindow® is properly attached.

    NOTE: Do not remove the TouchWindow® for at least eight (8) hours to allow the adhesive to set firmly.
Attaching the 17" TouchWindow®

Attaching the Hangar Arm:
  1. Using the supplied Allen wrench, unscrew and remove the L-shaped feet from the top of the TouchWindow®.
  2. Insert the left and right hanger arms, aligning the screw holes with those left by the removed L-shaped feet. Ensure that the rough Velcro® circle is facing toward the back of the TouchWindow®.
  3. Reattach the L-shaped feet over the hanger arms using the screws that were removed in Step 1.
Attaching the Velcro® Strips:
  1. Remove the paper backing from the rough side of two of the eight Velcro® strips and attach them at right angles to one corner of the TouchWindow®.
  2. Repeat Step 1 for the remaining three corners of the TouchWindow®.
  3. Holding the TouchWindow® in front of the monitor, verify that TouchWindow® is evenly aligned with the computer monitor and that the Velcro® strips fit on the monitor frame.
  4. Remove the paper backing from the soft side of the Velcro® strips and position the TouchWindow® over the monitor (as before) and press the TouchWindow® firmly to the monitor.
  5. With the TouchWindow® in place, remove the plastic backing from the soft Velcro® circles and attach them to the top of the monitor so that they align with the rough Velcro® circles on the hanger arms.
  6. Attach the rough Velcro® circles of the hanger arms to the soft Velcro® circles on the top of the monitor. The TouchWindow® is properly attached.

    NOTE: Do not remove the TouchWindow® for at least eight (8) hours to allow the adhesive to set firmly.
