- Make sure it is on the correct side and right-side-up so the officials and finish camera can see it
- Use at least 6 pins to hold on big number—8 are better as no part of the number will catch the wind
- Do not use the pre-cut holes in the corner of the numbers—ignore them as these will cause your number to flap in the wind a lot. Just pin right through the surface of the number.
|Well positioned number with the ideal 8 pins.|
