Banner Bug Set Up Guide

Banner Bugs are simple to assemble, set up yours in just 4 easy steps!

How-To Instructions: Setting Up Your Banner Bug Retractable Banner Stand

Banner Bug Set Up Instructions

Step 1: To set up the base and folded support rod of your Banner Bug Stand, remove them from the included Banner Bug Bag.

Step 2: Straighten out the support rod so it becomes one long pole. Insert the bottom portion of the support rod (the end of the rod that becomes narrower and has a noticeable aluminum ring around it) into the corresponding opening located at the base of the Banner Bug stand.

Step 3: Once you have the base and support rod set up, gently raise the banner up from the retractable base until it is the same height as the support rod.

Step 4: To finish the set-up process, simply insert the black plastic hook (attached to the top rail) into the top of the pole.

Note: For those who prefer a shorter banner stand, leave the top portion of the support rod hanging down and attach your banner to the second highest support rod instead (Insert the black plastic hook connected to the top rail into the top part of the second highest support rod).

After this quick set-up, your banner or trade show booth will immediately draw attention from the crowd!

Banner Bug Artwork Specs

With a multitude of different Banner Bug sizes and styles to choose from, it is important to consider the bleed size. For all models, from the Desk Bug to the 72” Bug, we recommend a 1.19” (30mm) top bleed and a 7.875” (200mm) bottom bleed. The top and bottom bleeds will not interfere with your colorful, attention grabbing graphics! The top bleed is folded to create a pocket, and the bottom bleed is applied to the holding mechanism inside the unit itself. No matter what size Banner Bug you choose, there is ample space for the message you want conveyed to your audience. With Outstanding Banners and Stands, your exhibit or booth will be bright, colorful, and professional.

Banner Bug Graphic Replacement Instructions

When the time comes to change out the banner graphics, Banner Bug stands make it easy!

  • Start by removing the pin, and completely releasing the graphic panel from the base.
  • Once the graphic panel is removed, this will expose the PVC tongue and graphic join.
  • When the hole on the roller lines up with the hole in the end cap, replace the pin.
  • Carefully remove the existing graphic panel from the PVC tongue.
  • Add about 20mm of tape to the base of the new graphic panel.
  • Place the new graphic in the same position, but do not remove the tape backing yet.
  • Slide the top rail off the old graphics panel, and remove the grey PVC strip from the print.
  • Add .63” of hook tape to the top of the new graphic panel, and apply the grey PVC strip.
  • Fold the top bleed of the new graphic backwards one time, and then slide it carefully into the rail. The black clip should be facing up.
  • Finally, remove the holding pin from the side of the system, and carefully guide the new graphic into the unit.

Your new banner is now ready to be displayed!

Banner Bug Re-Tensioning Instructions

If you need to re-tension your banner, Banner Bug makes it easy! There are 5 simple steps to get your banner back in perfect shape.

1.  With the Banner Bug system facing you, remove the left end cap with a Philips screwdriver to expose the reel.

2.  Place the pin into the right side end cap. Rotate the reel until the hole in the reel lines up with the hole in the end cap. Use the Allen key to stop the reel from spinning.

3.  Take the left side end plate, and position it onto the system so the flat metal bar of the reel sticks out from the slot in the end cap. Use a vise grip on the flat bar.

4.  Use the vice grips to rotate the flat bar clockwise. The size of your banner will determine how many rotations are needed. View the table below to see the number of turns required for your banner.

5.  Finally, replace the screws in the left hand end cap.
