Half Moon Pot Rack Assembly
TOOLS PROVIDED: Hex wrench, fastener hardware (anchor, nuts, bolts, screws and sleeves)
TOOLS NEEDED: Level, tape measure, pencil, drill and 1/2" drill bit, 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 clean out screw holes in body (4B) and back bar (11). Using a button head bolt and hex wrench provided, rotate the bolt through each screw hold, then withdraw it. That will push paint out and make attaching parts easier.
HOW TO ATTACH YOUR POT RACK TO THE WALL
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. On the wall, mark the three points 11" long by 11-1/4" high (a triangle) where the top of rack arm and back bar will attach. Then tap a small nail through each mark to be certain a stud is not in the way. (NOTE: because your pot rack includes super-strong new-technology anchors, you DO NOT need to locate and bolt to studs. See more information under STEP 2 BELOW).
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; many times the weight you will likely hang from your pot rack. SEE TOGGLE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW
