Lay out at least 2 ¾ inches from the wall or any obstruction. Then, mark the location of the first strip. For the second strip, measure 7.5 inches from the centerline, and then mark it. If you plan to install multiple columns, make sure that you allow a minimum of 5.5 inches from the outside strip of one column to the inside strip of the next.

Third, Install Anchors

If you’re installing through drywall, drill a pilot hole first. If you hit a stud, fasten the rack directly to the stud. For the top holes, drill a 13/32 inch hole for the toggle bolt. For the bottom holes, screw the spiral drywall anchors into the wall at the designated areas.

Fourth, Hang the First Strip

In preparation for the first strip, remove the expanding nuts from the toggle bolts. Insert the bolts through the top mounting hole, and thread expanding nut-wings. Gently push the nuts through the 13/32 inch drill holes, and make sure their wings are fully expanded. Tighten the bolts and make sure that the racks align with the bottom spiral anchors. Then, secure the rest of the strip using the bottom mounting screws. Tighten the toggle bolt completely.

If you are stacking more than two racks, remove the end plug before installing. And if you are installing through a wooden wall, screw directly into all marked holes.

Fifth, Hang the Second Strip

Simply do the fourth step with the second strip. Make sure that it is centered with the mark on the wall, so that the tops of the strips are parallel.
