you put the grills back on, only secure the inside lower and
outside top Velcro points. This will 1) hold it securely, 2) won't
vibrate even if you are using the onboard speakers, and 3) will be

Here's a "tip" on wood
screws and wood (especially particle board): When you get
ready to reinstall the screws, take your time! Line the parts up,
insert the screw into the hole with minimal pressure, and then
gently rotate the screw COUNTER-clockwise until you feel it
"click" or "clunk" down a notch. THEN
carefully turn it clockwise to tighten. Start all screws first,
and then tighten them down. The "clunk" maneuver will
drastically increase the number of times you can take a wood screw
out and put it back in before the hole "wallows out".

you need to remove the front mask (screen assembly), simply look
for the four brackets like the one in the image above. Remove the
8 total screws from the brackets. To remove the screen assembly,
simply pull out slightly on the bottom of the frame and lift the
entire frame up off the upper retention rail. NOTE: the frame is
fairly "flimsy" as it comes from the factory. Don't lift
the frame from the center of any side. Handle the screen assembly
by grasping/lifting at the corners. This will also aid in
minimizing "racking" of the frame.

frame/stack should be secured well away (and safely) from the work
area to avoid unintended contact with the screen elements et
it for the basic disassembly. Re-assembly is simply the reverse of
the above procedures.
