Part 1. Setting up the rig

1. Secure the TV with the wooden blocks. Measure the distance where your glass needs to sit on the TV.

Double check the measurements. You only need to set one side of your rig up with 90 degree angles. This
will ensure that the glass is perfectly aligned with the TV screen.

Your set up should be taller than the glass to guide it into place.
