How to install wire shelves into a new closet
How to Install Closetmaid Shelves
Everything is supported by the first horizontal bar. Once you have this securely mounted on the wall (level, and at the appropriate height), you can cruise through the rest of the installation. Spend all of the time you need getting the long horizontal bar installed correctly - it supports almost all of the weight of the system.
Slide one of the vertical bars onto the horizon bar, and find the appropriate height for the horizontal bar.Mark it with your pencil.
Take your three-foot level and continue this line across the entire length of your future closet.
Hold the horizontal bar back in place (no vertical bar attached), and mark the screw holes with your pencil.
Use a stud-finder or your smallest drill bit to mark the screw holes that lie on studs (if you can't find a stud, stop and call a contractor).
Drill the appropriate sized holes on all of the screw spots you marked (smaller holes for studs, larger holes in between).
Install the horizontal bar into the studs and with your anchors, ensuring that it ends up level (check for level periodically as you tighten it to the wall).
Hang your vertical pieces by hooking them over the horizontal bar.
Secure the vertical pieces to the wall.
Install your shelf brackets and accessories.
Install your shelves and you're done.
- If you haven't done this type of project before, it is always helpful to have someone who has done it nearby.
- If this is your first DIY project, start by hanging a single, small shelf in an area of your home that is not prominent. This will allow you to get the basics so that you can move on to your "ClosetMaid" system with confidence.
- If you cannot find a stud, stop and call a contractor.
- If you hit something with your drill that does not feel like a stud or a void space, stop and call a contractor. Water and gas pipes, as well as electrical lines, run behind walls.
