Installation instructions are included and can be viewed in the pictures above. Installation is fairly simple however. There are two pieces, the lock/clamp and the shoe (the smaller piece with the 4 pre-drilled holes). The shoe is the piece that attaches underneath your piano, and is easily mounted using the 4 included screws. The wood underneath a piano is usually soft, so you will not need to pre-drill holes–you can just screw it in by hand. Wood spacers are included in case you need to adjust the height (typically they are not needed as fallboards in general are the same size, but occasionally some spinets or uprights will need the extra little bit of height adjustment). The larger locking piece then slides into the shoe, and you turn the key to lock it in place. When you want to play the piano, simply unlock it and remove the clamp.
