Running floor to ceiling, the flush mount retainer corner guard sits flush against the wall, creating a consistent transition between the corner guard and the wall. Because these are built into the wall, they will only work with new construction. Standard length is 8'.

After framing is completed, install gypsum wall board on the steel stud framing using the proper drywall setback measurements for the correct type of flush mount corner guard.
Mark the locations for the fasteners on the aluminum retainer. Fasteners should be placed 3” for the top and bottom, then 14” O.C., be sure to stagger fasteners on opposite sides of the retainer.
Position the aluminum retainer over the framing at the corner. Ensure that the retainer’s flanges over lap on the gypsum wall board and that the retainer is properly aligned with the wall. Using the marks on the retainer (Step 2) install the retainer on the corner by securing the retainer to the steel stud on each side of the corner with self drilling, self tapping screws provided. Ensure that the retainer’s flanges remain correctly lapped over the gypsum drywall as they are attached to the steel stud.
Cover the exposed flanges of the aluminum retainer with drywall joint compound (by others). Feather the edges as necessary.
If the corner guard is less than the full height of the wall, or trimming is required, measure and cut the vinyl cover to the correct size.
Snap the vinyl cover onto the retainer. This is done by inserting one side of the cover along the height of the retainer, and starting at one end, pressing the opposite side of the cover onto the retainer until is snaps into place.
