How To

Step 1

Installing Standard Railing Flanges

Stage 1
  • 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.

Step 2

Buidling Legs

Stage 2
  • 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.

Step 3

Installing Shelf Support and Legs

Stage 3
  • 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.

Step 4

Placing Wood Shelves

Stage 4
  • 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.
