Step 2: With a keyhole saw (or other cutting tool), cut along the square tracing made. *CAUTION* There may be insulation and electrical wiring behind the drywall you are about to cut through. Consider identifying the position of the wiring prior to cutting. Remove any debris that remains after cutting out the square. Carefully spread apart any insulation to allow room for your Wikaru brace to be applied.
Step 3: Remove the male brace and female brace from the package. Connect the two braces together and advance to the last ring on the male brace and stop.
Step 4: Remove the enclosed piece of double sided sticky tape from the package. Remove one side of the tape cover on your double-sided square tape. Apply the tape to the base of the female brace and make sure it is secure. Apply the female brace with the tape to the center of the provided drywall piece, and press firmly for a few seconds to make sure that it is attached firmly.
Step 5: With the braces now attached to the provided piece of drywall, insert the braces through the square past any insulation if present. Make sure that the arrow is at the top for correct position. Apply mild pressure to the center of the provided drywall and advance until the replacement piece is flush with the existing wall.
