FeaturesStrong drywall anchors to keep your cubby shelf anchored to a wall to prevent tipping.
- (2)Drywall Anchors
Step #1, install the bracket to the shelving unit like so:
Finger-tighten the bolt to the nut on the other side.
Step #2, mark the space on the wall where you'll be putting the anchor.
If you are not going to be attaching the bracket to a stud, you'll need to put an anchor into the drywall to make sure the screw doesn't just tear through the drywall. What? You don't know if there's a stud or not? Well, there's two ways to find out. If you are handy and happen to have a stud finder in the house, you can use that, or I always use the "knock, knock" method; just knock on the wall. If it sounds hollow, there's no stud, if it sounds solid there's probably a stud.
If there's no stud, here's step #3. If there is a stud, just move on to step #4
Gently hammer the anchor into the wall.
Step #4, attach the screw.
Step #5, pat yourself on the back and look at the great job you did!
If you have any other furniture in your home that isn't anchored to a wall, we highly suggest you anchor it down. Free standing flat screen tv's, dressers, bookshelves, hutches etc will all be safer if anchored.
