Setup

Install

  1. Mark the wall where the ends of the shelf are to be positioned.
     
  2. Measure from the shelf edge to the approximate center of the nearest keyhole slot.
     
  3. Mark the wall for this screw location using the measurement obtained in step 2.
     
  4. Measure the distance between the keyhole starting holes on the back of the shelf.
     
  5. Use the measurement from step 4 to locate the 2nd screw on the wall making sure it is level with the 1st screw.
     
  6. Insert screws (or molly bolts) into the wall leaving approximately 3\16" gap between the screw head and the wall.
     
  7. Position the keyhole starting holes over the screw heads and slide the shelf to the LEFT until it is in the desired location.
