Getting Started with 360 Hanging Kit


Users will first want to find a surface in which they can suspend their turntable upside down. We find a piece of wood with a hole drilled out in the middle works best however other options are available too. In the image below, we used a 2 x 4’ sheet of plywood and drilled a 3” circle hole in the middle using a hole saw drill bit. We then suspended this platform using 2 31” tall saw horses.

Next, the turntable platform will need to be removed (remove the 3 screws used to mount this top to the turntable stem) then remove the roller bearings.


Figure 2: Removing screws & deciding turntable stem

It is in this next step users will decide which hanging kit stem will be required. 

  • If using the Watch Stand Mount, use the Stem with the white connector mount on one end (part A, Figure 2 - see above)
  • If using either of the plates or the Hook, then use the connector mount with metal screw mount on both ends (part B, Figure 2 - see above).

Connect the stem to the hanging kit mount (circle piece) using the provided screw (see Figure 3 below):

Next, use the 3 screws that were used to mount the turntable platform to connect the Hanging Kit Mount to the center stem (see Figure 4):

After the mount has been attached, its time to flip the turntable upside down. Users can either:

  1. Adhere the rubber feet to the turntable (using the provided Suspension Feet Adhesive (red dots) – this is optional. See Figure 5
  2. Place the turntable upside down and place the feet under it. See Figure 6 for suggested feet placement

Flip Turntable upside down and place stem through hole (see Figure 7)
