    In my overzealous hunt for BB's, I knocked my passive monitor off of my box spring. Before I put a new one on (the sticky is no longer sticking), I want to make sure I did it right in the first place. It is at the head of my bed stuck on the box spring by where I sleep. My box spring has been in an encasement for several years, but it fits loosely. The monitor is flat against the material, but is a little tipped if that makes sense. Does that matter? Should it go on the headboard instead? Thanks!

    That sounds like a good placement to me.

    Thank you!! Just so I'm clear-keep it where it was on the encased box spring? Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions. I shouldn't be going as crazy as I am, but I'm scared.

    Probably a stupid question, but I want to make sure I'm doing things correctly. I have to move the bed away from the wall to check the monitor, and then push it back. Is that going to have any negative implications? I also can pull up on the encasement without moving the bed, but that really jostles it around. I thought about using my phone or a mirror to reach between the monitor and headboard, but again, am afraid to knock it around to much.
