How to mount a dart board!?

Ive just bought a Winmau Blade 3 dartboard in good nic second hand with all the fixings, however there are no instructions on how to attach the fixings to the board!

i know the dimensions on how it should be mounted, but not how to actually use the fixings.

anyone have any idea?

Dartboards in my local were always placed onto a "v" shaped thing ( technical term ) in the wall, hanging by a pin in the centre of the board.
This allowed them to be rotated ( having taken off the wire score mesh ) to allow for even use all over the board.
Don't know if you can do that now as I think the scores are now printed on the boards.
Does Google help at all?

I have that exact set of fixings but just dont know how to attach them! ive worked out that the plate goes onto the wall and the big scre into the hole behind the bull.

I know the 3 metal pieces are spacers, do these get hammered into the board or into the wall? and where should they be placed? in a "Y" shape?

I usually mount the dart board after 7 pints.

Read the manual, alot of measuring to do, both from the feet to the bullseye, feet to the wall and bullseye from the floor.

Can't wait for next thursday, darts league starts and I've set up my local pub in the bottom league.

I know the measuring bits, its just where i actually put the metal thingamybobs!
Ive never mounted a dart board before, do the 3 spacers go into the wall or into the board?

Onto the board, they bring the board away from the wall then you pack the board at the back with wedges.

Put one in 12 and one in 18 and one in 3 - obviously on the back of the board.

sellotape and blu-tack - does the trick.

What do you mean pack the back of the board with wedges?

This is so that the board is level and also when the dart hits the board and when your taking out your darts the board dosen't slide or move.
