Adjustments on the plate of your Medalholder’

Both the medal holder (with the praying falcon with two crossed swords logo below and the indication of your size S, M and L) and the stand are made of 1 mm thick steel and are powder coated. Multiple 2mm holes and slots are drilled to accommodate most formats. The formatting of BOVOMED onderscheidingen is fully adapted to this.
It could be that (if you had the layout done elsewhere), a pin doesn’t correspond to the many holes/slits on the plate. This will then require self-work with a drill and 2mm drill bit. If an extra hole(s) has to be drilled, it is advisable to touch up this with black lacquer to prevent rust. BOVOMED onderscheidingen (awards) can support you to drill a hole in it for free.
Our advice is never to use a grinding wheel to work the plate or support on the Medal holder! This will allow the powder coating to come off (becomes too hot) resulting in rust.
