We have provided you with mounting hardware as what you have indicated in your order. If you didn't provide any info on the type of wall you have, we have included plasterboard/drywall anchors and screws.
| For Plasterboard:
We use Ramset self-drilling plasterboard anchor. It is quick and easy to install with nothing but a #2 Phillips Head screwdriver. It’s non-conductive, so it's ideal for installation near electrical wires.
If you plan to mount it on a stud, you don't need to use the anchors.
We will not be responsible for fastening failure due to faulty plasterboard or improper installation.
For Brick or Cement:
For Triangle Shelves
You can hang the shelves using long nails under the tip of each triangle peak. In case you are planning to put large/heavy items, long screws might be a better choice. Use 2 nails/screws (one in each corner) if hanging the triangle upside down. We have included some screws for this. *Use a stud finder to locate any studs to determine if you can install the shelf directly to the studs*.
| For Shelves With Magnets
Each magnet has a grip of up to around 100 grams using a metal key ring with a wide surface area. Stainless steel will not grip to the magnet.
Instructions On How To Hang Shelves With Keyholes
- Measure from the center of the round opening in the keyhole on the back of the shelf to the center of the round opening in other keyhole, writing this measurement down. A keyhole has a round opening at the base that transitions to a straight opening at the top.
- Measure up from the floor to the height you want your shelf and mark this with a pencil on the wall. Using a level as a straightedge, draw a straight line on the wall with a pencil as a guideline for installation. Use a stud finder to locate any studs to determine if you can install the shelf directly to the studs.
- Mark the two center points of the keyholes on the wall based on the measurement you took of the back of the shelf and your guideline for the desired height and location of the shelf. Drill a pilot hole slightly smaller than the wall anchors you’ll use into each mark or a hole that will fit the screws you'll drive into the studs.
- Tap or screw a wall anchor into each pilot hole (if the anchor is threaded, you will likely have to screw it in) if it isn’t possible to secure the screws to wall studs. Always work slowly and don’t force the anchor to prevent bending or stripping it. Keep working until the anchor is flush with the wall.
- Secure the screws to the wall anchors or studs, leaving the head of the screw sticking out slightly. There should be enough sticking out so that the back of the shelf will be flush with the wall, and the keyhole will slip over the screw securely. To avoid over tightening, which can damage the integrity of the wall anchor, you may need to back the screw out a bit. Test the shelf as you work for the best results.
- Line the widest part of the keyholes on the back of the shelf up with the screws. Push the shelf onto the screws so that it’s flush with the wall, then carefully pull the shelf down (or to the right if you are hanging a picture ledge) so that the screw heads slip up into the narrow part of the keyhole, thus locking the shelf in place.
