Wall Bar & Bamboo Shelf Pot Rack



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






ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS

TIP FIRST, REMOVE PAINT FROM BOLT HOLES. Because the powder coat finish applied at the factory also adheres to the inside of screw holes, turning a screw through it during assembly may be difficult. Therefore, before connecting parts, we recommend that you clean out screw holes in brackets. Using a button head screw and hex wrench provided, rotate the bolt through each screw hole, then withdraw it. That will push paint out and make securing parts easier.

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

  • STEP 2: Note the small hole near the end of the side bar. Place a bracket over the hole to cover it, then slide the bracket back and forth (an inch or so either direction, keeping the hole covered) until you have determined for yourself the most pleasing distance from the end of the bar. Mark that distance, then with button head bolts secure the other bracket at the same point from its end.
  • STEP 3: Square Pot Rack On TablePlace assembled rack squarely on table and adjust all parts to be certain they are level and straight. Then tighten all bolts firmly. Now measure the distance between holes center to center at tops of brackets and note for later use when you install (see installation instructions below).

  • STEP 4: Position The ShelfNote the small holes located in the center of the flat section of each bracket. Two set screws will be driven through them to secure the bamboo shelf to the brackets. Center the bamboo shelf on top of the brackets (now fixed in position) then with a pencil mark the two set screw points on the under side of the bracket. Pre-drill the marks (or tap a starter hole with a hammer and a small nail) then drive set screws into bamboo to secure shelf.


  • HOW TO ATTACH YOUR POT RACK TO THE CEILING

  • STEP 1: LOCATION
    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).

  • STEP 2: HEIGHT
    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.

  • STEP 3: 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; 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!
