Step 3: Securing it all together
Do the same with the longer hex nut, but secure it by inserting the hex nut from the inside to the outside of the coat rack. It doesn't matter which way you secure it, we just found it easier to do it this way. Because our bottom hole and side hole were so close to each other, to secure it both on the inside of the box would have made tightening the nut a bit harder. So, it seems, we were just lazy.
