Mount and Secure Your Square Stand

Learn how to quickly set up your Square Stand, secure it to your countertop, and connect hardware accessories. Square Stand can be secured to your countertop using the adhesive mount or drill mount included in the box.

Mount the Square Stand (2nd Generation)

Secure your stand to a countertop using either a drill, a 3/16” drill bit and the included drill mount, or with the included adhesive mounting plate.

Note: Because the Square Stand is a piece of electrical equipment, please be sure to mount it somewhere that is not frequently wet and away from dust and debris.

Adhesive Mount

  1. Plug the USB hub into the Square Stand: Plug the cable from the USB hub into the bottom of the Square Stand. Note: If the cable exits the base of the Square Stand on the right side (when the screen faces you), the Square Stand will swivel clockwise. If the cable exits the base on the left side, the Square Stand will swivel counterclockwise.

  2. Screw in the adhesive mounting plate: Make sure the cable is firmly pushed in, then screw in the adhesive mounting plate.

  3. Remove the adhesive backing: Check that the plate is tightly screwed in and the base of the Square Stand is locked with the cable exiting from your preferred side, then remove the adhesive backing.

  4. Mount the Square Stand to your countertop: Clean and dry the area where you want to mount the Square Stand, then firmly adhere the stand into place. Press down for 30 seconds and wait 30 minutes for the adhesive to set.

Note: To remove the adhesive mount, pull the tabs on the mount slowly outwards. The adhesive will start to stretch until it detaches from the surface it was mounted on.
