In preparation for the installation of the Wall Series strips, lay out your cellar wall.  Make sure that the layout is at least 2 ¾ inches from any obstruction. Once satisfied with the desired location of the first strip, mark it. For the second strip, measure approximately 7.5 inches from the centerline, and mark it.

If you plan to install more than two columns, keep in mind to allow at least 5.5 inches from the outside strip of one column to the inside strip of the next.

Identify the locations of the holes that you will be drilling. Simply hold the strip against the wall, and make sure that it is centered on the first mark. Once the strip is level, mark the places where the holes will be drilled.

Time to install the anchors. If you’re working on drywall, make sure to drill a pilot hole first. If you hit a stud, you can fasten the rack directly to the stud.

For the holes on top, drill a 13/32 inch hole for the toggle bolt. For the holes below, screw the spiral drywall anchors into the wall at the assigned places.

To hang the first strip, you first need to remove the expanding nuts from their toggle bolts. Then, insert the bolts through the top hole. Thread the expanding nut-wings, and then gently push the nuts through the 13/32 inch drill holes. Ensure that the wings are fully expanded. Tighten all the bolts.

Then, make sure that the strip aligns with the bottom spiral anchors. Once it is level, secure the rest of the strip by using the screws for the bottom hole. Ensure that the toggle bolt is completely tightened.

NOTE: If you plan to stack more than two metal wine racks, remove the end plug first before installing. If you are installing through a wooden wall, you can screw directly into all marked holes.
