Hold the stand against the wall and mark one of the upper holes. Put in 1 of the screws, but do not tighten it entirely. This makes it much easier to figure out the best position. Next, mark the other holes and put in the other screws. Make sure it is positioned in a way that gravity gets proper hold on the horn and the bell is pulled into the upper bracket.
The lower support is adjustable, in order to alter the French Horn’s position slightly after stand is mounted.
Especially with drywall it is of utmost importance to find a spot that offers solid footing for the screws, and has a stud or beam directly behind it. For stone walls you will have to drill holes with a maximum ¼ inch drill bit and insert the wallplugs and screws. The little caps are to cover the screws. Put hem on the tip of your forefinger and place them over the screw’s head. Then, with a twisting movement of your finger feel for their proper position over the slot, then just push them in. Use some glue if all else fails.
If you use a cordless drill for the screws, make sure its chuck doesn’t damage the coating.

To keep the rubber in good shape you could occasionally very lightly spray it with silicone and rub it in.
