Assemble hinge clips

Align panels to the frame to insure they are centered with the frame. The hinge clips snap to the side panles. The tolerences on the clips should be tight enough to grip the panles.

You can adjust the horizontal compensation in the slicing software if the hinge clips are too loose or too tight.

Adhere hinge clips to panels

Use adhesives like E600 or hot glue to attach the hinge clips to the side panels.

Be careful not to glue the parts were the hinges move together!

Screw nut 

The hinges are held together using #6-32 x 1" flat phillips screws with nuts. The hinge knuckle has an opening to insert the nut. 

Hinge knuckle

The tolerences should be loose enough to easily insert the screw nut. Rotate the the screw nut until it can be fitted inside the knuckle.

Add screws

Insert the #6 screw through the hinge pin hole on the opposite side of the nut. The groove should keep the nut in place as you tighten the screw.

Final assembly

After all of the panels are aligned and glued, we are ready to attach the frame to the LED panel.

Attach barn frame 

Affix the assembled barn doors to the LED panel by sliding it over the top of the panel. 


With the barn doors assembled you can mount the LED panel to the hot shoe of a camera or use the pan tilt shoe mount base on a tripod. You can even use our small 3D printed tripod on a desk.
