The mounting plate (and 3M Command™ adhesive tape) is provided with your Kittyo because we know your kitty likes knocking things over. Firstly, remove the protective foam from the base. Then, after finding an ideal place for your Kittyo (3-5 ft off the ground), using the included 3M Command™ adhesive tape, stick one side of the command tape to the bottom of the base, using the rectangles as a guide. (Be sure to leave the rounded edges sticking out, in case you want to remove them) Finally, remove the other side of the tape and you're ready to mount. If you ever want to remove the strips, simply stretch and pull the tab until the strip comes fully off. Happy playing!
