How To Install Drywall Rings - MPLS, MP1P, LV1

This video will show you how to install the 3 most common drywall rings out on the market. The first one is the Erico Caddy MP1P, which is a white plastic mud ring that uses no screws. Another nice feature is the 4 points on the front of the plate, allowing you to mark the drywall without the use of a pencil. The second demonstration is for the Arlington Industries LV1. This is also a plastic mud ring that has 2 pre-mounted screws. Simply hold the plastic piece in place and tighten with a screwdriver or drill. Lastly, we show you how to install the Erico Caddy MPLS mud ring. This is a metal ring that has 2 tabs in the center. Simply align the MPLS in the drywall hole, fold the 2 tabs into the hole and screw in the included screws. The MPLS drywall ring will give you a very snug, tight fit, making this our most popular mud ring. The Arlington LV1 has been picking up in popularity though, due to the point Mercy brings up in the video. The MPLS has sharp screws that can cause cuts to your hand, or damage to the cable, while the LV1 has blunt ended screws.

Leave us a comment below on which drywall ring you like the best and why.
