Alarm Sign
Didnt know where to post this so gonna put it in here. I have ADT security system and have some of those yard signs. My question is is there any way you could remove it from the pole and mount it to a fence. The reason i ask is there are townhouses behind me and wanted to mount one of the signs on the fence so no one could just pull it out of the ground and i wouldn't know. So if anyone has done this like to know how you did. Thanks for any help.

Sure, just remove it from the pole and screw it to the fence. If you post a pic of the sign, I'm sure we could advise you how to remove it from the pole.

Call ADT. They might give you more signs.

I did call ADT and they dont make one that is like that just the ones that go in the yard and window stickers. I looked at it better today seems like some adhesive that's holding it on to the pole. Ill get some pics up tomorrow and see what yall think. Thanks
