Building Horizontal Support
Start by building the middle shelf.
The fitting used will be the Side Outlet Tee (681-604HC). The sides will use 12” pipe (584-120PE30HC) and the front and back will use 36” pipe (584-360PE30HC).
Making a square, attach the pipes to the Side Outlet Tees (681-604HC) as shown in above image. Make sure the vertical holes will not be blocked then tighten set screws.
Steel•Tek Professional Tip
Place a pipe in the vertical holes when sliding the other pipe in horizontally. This way you know the vertical holes will not be blocked.
Installing Flanges and Legs
Install your Flanges (683-104HC).
If you have any concerns with the pipes not matching up when the Flanges (683-104HC) are installed then here is a little tip. When lining up the Flanges (683-104HC), place the pipes for the legs in the flanges, slide the base built in Stage 1 onto the legs then mark the Flange (683-104HC) holes. By doing this you are guaranteeing everything will line up once the Flanges (683-104HC) are installed.
Once the holes are marked remove the middle shelf base and the legs and pre-drill the holes.
Once the holes are pre-drilled, install the Flanges (683-104HC) using wood screws.
Slide the 18" pipe (584-180PE30HC) legs in the Flanges (683-104HC) and tighten set screws.
Installing Horizontal Base
Slide the middle shelf onto the legs until centered or placed at desired height then tighten set screws.
Cap the bottom of the legs off with Flanges then tighten set screws.
Placing Middle Wood Piece
Place the wood piece on the middle shelf.
Since this is specifically made for shoes it is not necessary to secure the wood to the pipe.
If there are concerns then you can use Offset Flanges (689-904HC) on each middle shelf pipe to secure the wood.
