Installing tabi is quick and simple, requiring only a few basic tools. Check out our video to help you get started, or download the installation guide.

Installing tabi

  • Tape the included tabi template where you would like to install your tabi board, using a level to make sure it’s straight.
  • Using a drill with bit attachment (3/32″ for wood surfaces or 15/64″ for drywall and plaster surfaces), drill pilot holes where marked on the template.
  • Remove your template from the wall.
  • If you are installing tabi on a plaster or drywall surface, tap the provided wall anchors into the pilot holes.
  • Use the provided Allen wrench to remove the cap from the wall mounts.
  • Place a screw through the hole in the base of each stand-off mount and screw into the prepared pilot holes. Tighten the screw until the stand-off base is securely fastened to the wall.
  • Place the cap into the mounted stand-off base for the bottom mounts. Tighten bottom mount/slider base so that it can fits loosely and can be adjusted.
  • Tilting the tabi board toward you slightly, insert the bottom into the bottom stand-off mounts.
  • Place the top mount caps onto the edge of the tabi board and, tilting the board backward, insert into the mounted stand-off base.
  • Tighten each stand-off mount with the provided Allen wrench to ensure your tabi is securely fastened to the wall.
  • Follow the initial cleaning instructions below, and then get to using your tabi board!

Cleaning your tabi

  1. Moisten a clean cloth or paper towel with any glass cleaner (like Windex) or high-quality whiteboard cleaner. 
  2. Wipe the board to remove any residue. 
  3. Dry surface with a clean cloth. 

If you use your tabi board daily, we recommend cleaning it once a week. If you use it less often, clean it once a month for the best results. 

  1. Erase all content. 
  2. Moisten a clean cloth or paper towel with any glass cleaner (like Windex) or high-quality whiteboard cleaner and wipe the board to remove any residue.  
  3. Dry surface with a clean cloth. 
  1. Accidentally use a permanent marker on your tabi board? Just write over it with a dry erase marker then simply erase. In most cases, this will remove the marker.  
  2. To remove hard-to-clean stains, moisten a clean, dry cloth with water and apply a small amount of abrasive cleaner to the cloth. Work in small sections cleaning the area using a back and forth motion with gentle pressure. Wipe off all residue with a dry cloth.
  3. Using a non-appropriate cleaner, such as a degreaser, may leave residue on the surface which can result in decreased dry erasability. Rinse well with clean water and wipe dry with a clean cloth.
