You need ratchets every 4'. There are available in a number of lengths in both standard and heavy-duty configurations, making them ideal for virtually all flex face sign applications. Purchase ratchets that have a large tightening handle. The small metals ones are more difficult to use.
Please note: ratchets are sold by the case.
Classic Billboard Install Video
Watch our video to see a billboard installation take place. Some billboard installers use bucket trucks and some use ladders. There are various ways an installer might choose to install a billboard. However the best way is "safety first"! Always use a harness! This could save your life. Choose a billboard installer that carries his or her own liability insurance and make sure they add you as "named as insured" on the policy. If your installer is not an employee of your company please make sure your contract laborer signs a contract that includes safety practices and that they will always carry liability. We would recommend talking with your attorney about best practices when hiring an installer. This video is just an example of what a typical installation looks like. First step is ordering your billboard print!
