Installing Standard Railing Flanges
- Start off by installing all the Standard Railing Flanges.
- Measure 12 inches from the ground and 12 inches in between each Standard Rail Flange vertically.
- Make sure to install the Standard Railing Flanges into the studs of your wall with wood screws.
- The standard distance between studs is 16 inches and since we used 36 inch shelves we went 32 inches accross.
- Slide three Single Socket Tees on each 72 inch pipe. Do not tighten yet.
- Attach the Flanges on the bottom and the Elbows on the top of your 72 inch pipe.
Installing Shelf Support and Legs
- Slide 12 inch pipe into each Standard Railing Flange and tighten set screws.
- Take your first 72 inch pipe and attach Elbow to top 12 inch pipe.
- Slide your Single Socket Tees up until they are attached to their respective 12 inch pipe and then tighten all set screws.
Placing Wood Shelves
- Place wooden shelves on each level of horizontal bars.
If you have children it is best to secure the wood shelves onto the horizontal pipes with our Offset Flanges.
- Slide Offset Flanges onto each vertical 12 inch pipe where the tab is facing up. In the tab of the Offset Flange there is a hole for a screw to go through.
- Go from under the Offset Flange and screw into the wood shelf.
- We recommend predrilling as not to crack the wood.
