Perfect for use in smaller kitchens, condos etc. as it will clear up much needed space. Comes with 8 convenient pot hooks. |
16"H x 10"W x 24"L
TOOLS PROVIDED: All tools required for assembly are provided. Hex wrench, fastener hardware (nuts, bolts), wall screws and sleeves
TOOLS NEEDED: Level, tape measure, pencil, drill, 1/2" and 3/16" drill bits, hammer and nail
TIP FIRST, REMOVE PAINT FROM BOLT HOLES. Because the powder coat finish applied at the factory also adheres to the inside of bolt holes, pushing a bolt through it during assembly may be difficult. Therefore, before connecting parts, we recommend that you check to see that bolts slip easily through all holes. If they do not, carefully clean paint from holes in side bars, ends and arms using a small knife.
SECOND, BE CERTAIN the barrel nuts and bolts screw together easily BEFORE beginning assembly. Residue from the black finish may cause some bolts to stick a bit, therefore use the two hex wrenches enclosed (one for each end of the barrel) and screw them together to clear away extra paint.
STEP 1: Layout Parts On a table lay out all parts as shown in the view above.
STEP 2: Connect Main Body PartsTemporarily connect two ends (9) and two side bars (3A) by inserting a barrel nut and bolt (28A, 28B) through the top hole at each of four corners. This will cause body of pot rack to stand on edge. Be certain side bar (3A) is on the INSIDE when connected. Tip: It is easiest to attach the pot rack parts when you insert the barrel nut (28B) from the INSIDE of the pot rack body, then screw the barrel bolt (28A) into 28B from the OUTSIDE.
STEP 3: Attach First Arm It is easiest to attach arms when the corner of the pot rack to which you are connecting the arm hangs slightly past the edge of the table. That provides clearance for the flared end that extends below the body of the rack. Remove the barrel bolt (28A) from one of the corners, keeping barrel nut (28B) in position. Place a curve arm (22) (2-hole end) on the OUTSIDE of the body. Align th three pieces (side bar 3A) on the inside, end piece (9) in the middle, arm (22) on outside) and reinsert the barrel bolt (28A) through the upper hole from the OUTSIDE.
Repeat for lower hole. Do not tighten barrel bolts firmly until all bolts are in place.
STEP 4: Attach Other Arm Repeat STEP THREE for remaining arm.
STEP 5: Level Pot Rack on Table Place assembled rack squarely on table and adjust all parts to be certain they are level and straight. Then tighten all bolts firmly.
STEP 6: Measure for Wall After the bookshelf rack is squared and tightened, the distance from the center of holes at top of arms to center of upper hole in back bar is 9 3/4". The width between upper holes is 20-3/4". The width between lower holes is also 20-3/4". Use these measurements when determining location of rack on wall in installation section below.
NOTE: Grid and brackets will be added AFTER the rack is attached to the wall.
HOW TO ATTACH YOUR POT RACK TO THE WALLSTEP 1: LOCATION
Decide where you want to place your pot rack. We suggest a location near your stove, sink or food preparation area. Also consider the height of the wall where the pot rack will hang, keeping in mind how far below the rack your pots and utensils will hang, plus how high above your head you can still easily reach cookbooks, etc. stored on the grid. On the wall, mark the four points 20-3/4" long by 9-3/4" high where the top of rack arms and back bar will attach. Then tap a small nail through each mark to be certain a joist is not in the way.)
STEP 2: INSTALL DRYWALL ANCHORS
The steel anchors are very strong and when installed in 5/8"drywall (standard ceiling code in modern houses) each drywall anchor holds about 200 lbs. Two anchors hold about 400 lbs, many times the weight you will likely hang from your pot rack. Since you no longer have to consider the location of a joist which usually determines where your rack has to be installed, you can position it in drywall anywhere you want!
