Stuff That You Need for the Installation:
- Wall Series metal wine racks (base and neck strips)
- Spiral drywall anchors
- Caps for the mounting holes
- Toggle bolts
- Phillips head screw driver
- Drill and bits
- Tape Measure
- Marker or pencil
Lay the base and neck strips on the cellar wall. Make sure they are placed at least 2 ¾ inches away from obstructions. Once you are happy with the location, mark it using a pencil or marker.
Then, lay out the second strip. Measure 7.5 inches from the centerline. When both strips are level, mark the location of the second strip.
NOTE: If you are going install more than two columns, you need to allow at least 5.5 inches from the outside of the first column to the inside strip of the next.
Since you will be drilling through the strips, you need to identify the locations of the holes on the walls. Hold the strip against the wall, and when you’ve made sure that it is centered and level, mark the locations where you will drill holes.
Install the anchors. If you are installing on drywall, drill a pilot hole first. If you hit a stud, you may fasten the strip directly to the stud.
There are two mounting holes: one at the top of the strip and another at the bottom. For top holes, drill a 13/32 inch hole for the toggle bolt. For the bottom holes, screw the spiral drywall anchors to the wall at the marked areas.
You’re ready to hang your strips. The first strip should be hung first. Simply remove the expanding nuts from their toggle bolts and insert the bolts through the top hole. Thread the expanding wing nuts. Gently push the nuts through the 13/32 inch holes. Have the wings expand fully and then tighten the bolts.
Ensure that the strip is properly aligned with its bottom spiral anchors. When it is level, install the rest of the strip with the screws. Make sure that the toggle bolt is tightened thoroughly.
Note: If you’re going to stack more than two metal racks, remove the end plug first. And, if you’re working on a wooden wall, you may screw directly into all marked holes.
The second strip is ready to be installed. Repeat the process you performed in the fourth step. Remember to keep the second strip centered with the mark on the wall. The tops of the strips should be parallel to each other.
The sixth and final step is to mount the metal racks. Install the caps for all of the mounting holes, and begin stacking the Wall Series racks. Stack the racks by replacing the end plug with the couplers. After which, you may begin placing your wine bottles on the racks.
