Generally, the distance between the fixing parts is not more than 50cm, and then draw a line for positioning. After the installation and fixing position is determined, it is necessary to drill holes and fill in expansion screws. If it is a wooden base, there is no need to drill holes, and it can be fixed directly with self-tapping screws.
