Square Grid Pot Rack Assembly

TOOLS PROVIDED: Hex wrench, toggles, fastener hardware (anchors, nuts, bolts, bolt hooks, screw hook and S-hook)

TOOLS NEEDED: 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 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.

  • STEP 1: Layout Parts On a table lay out all parts as shown in the view above.

  • STEP 2: Connect Main Body Parts Temporarily connect two rectangle ends (2) by inserting a barrel nut (28B) and barrel bolt (28A) through the top hole on each side. This will cause body of pot rack to stand on edge. It is easiest to attach the pot rack parts when you insert the barrel nut from the INSIDE of the pot rack body, then turn the barrel bolt(28A) into the nut from the OUTSIDE.
  • STEP 3: Attach First Arm It is easiest to attach arms when the side of the pot rack to which you are connecting the arm hangs slightly over the edge of the table. That provides clearance for the flared end that extends below the body of the rack. Now remove the barrel bolt (28A) from one side and place an angle arm (1) [2-hole end] on the OUTSIDE of the body. Align the three layers (rectangle ends [2], arm [1] on outside) and reinsert the barrel Bolt (28A) through the upper hole from the OUTSIDE.

  • STEP 4: Attach Other Arm Repeat STEP THREE for remaining arm.

  • STEP 5: Hang Tab Position hang tab (5) at top of arm, insert barrel nut/bolts and loosely tighten.

  • STEP 6: 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.


    Decide where you want to place your pot rack. We suggest placement over an island or near your stove and food preparation area. Also consider the height of the ceiling where the pot rack will hang. (See STEP 2 below.) On the ceiling, mark a point where the top of rack arms (hang tab) will attach to ceiling bolt hook. Then tap a small nail through the mark to be certain a joist 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 a ceiling joist. See more information under STEP 3 below).

    What is the ideal height for your pot rack? Decide who will be the primary cook using the pot rack. The bottom of your longest pan (usually a 10" or 12" skillet) should be easily reachable, about 6" above the cook's head. Make sure the cook can also reach the shortest pots. This pot rack is designed for a 9ft ceiling, a common height in many kitchens. If your ceiling is HIGHER than 9ft, you may want to consider adding a chain to lower the rack to the ideal height.

    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. 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!
