How do I install Viking’s institutional escutcheons with the 10551W/B?
Use this tool only in accordance with Viking’s official installation guides for each sprinkler. Installation typically follows these steps:
- Before securing the escutcheon, place it on the sprinkler (without the locking ring) to confirm that the water supply pipe is of the correct length. Then, install the locking ring.
- Secure Viking’s 10551W/B escutcheon tool to the escutcheon by connecting the four indentations on the escutcheon ring to the tabs on the tool.
- Rotate the institutional escutcheon clockwise until the four arms of the locking ring engage and the plate fits tightly against the wall or ceiling.
- Rotate the plate an additional half-turn clockwise.
