If you’re working with a Valve Index Base Station, you’ll need to know how to mount it properly to ensure optimal performance. In this tutorial, we’ll take a closer look at the steps involved in mounting a Valve Index Base Station and some tips to make the process smoother.

Gather Your Tools

Before you begin, it’s essential to gather all the tools and materials you’ll need. You will need a drill, screws, anchors, and a level. Ensure that the screws are long enough to secure the base station firmly.

Choose Your Mounting Location

The next step is to choose an ideal location for your base station. The location should be near your play area, ideally positioned above head height and be able to see as much of your play area as possible. It’s also necessary to ensure that there aren’t any obstructions that might interfere with tracking.

Mark The Mounting Points

Once you’ve found an appropriate location for your base station, use a pencil or marker pen to mark where you want to mount it on the wall. Using a level will help ensure that your markings are straight.

Drill Holes And Install Anchors

With your markings in place, drill holes into the wall at each marked point. Make sure that the holes are deep enough for anchors if necessary. Insert anchors into each hole if required for extra support.

Secure The Mounting Plate

After installing the anchors, attach the mounting plate securely using screws. Ensure that you tighten them adequately so they can support the weight of your base station.

Attach The Valve Index Base Station

Once you’ve securely mounted the plate on which your base station is going to be placed, attach it by sliding it onto its stand or screwing it into place on top of the mounting plate. Make sure that it’s level and securely attached.

Test The Mounting

Finally, test the mounting by turning on your Valve Index Base Station and checking to see if it is working correctly. If everything is working correctly, then congratulations! You have successfully mounted your Valve Index Base Station.


Mounting a Valve Index Base Station is easy once you know how to do it correctly. By following these simple steps, you can ensure that your base station is securely mounted and functioning at optimal performance. Remember, always double-check for any obstructions or issues that might affect tracking before installing your base station to avoid any problems down the line.
