How I make Glossary Link controller stands for the display.


There are many ways and techniques to building controller stands.  Some like them heavy duty, some like them pretty, and others like them simple.

I have two types of stands used in the display depending where they are located.

Click To EnlargeCaution: when using the conduit method, make sure a hole is drilled below the mounting holes.  This will ensure water can drain properly without leaking into the enclosure and possibly ruining the controller.

Depending what you situation is, hopefully this illustration will help to make your display a successful and secure one.
