Shelf Installation

Introduction: Shelf Installation

This presentation is made on shelf installation and how to do it correctly. I will go over the supplies you will need as well as the steps you should take when putting up shelves.

Step 1: Supplies

the first step in shelf installation is to gather the supplies. you will need shelf sections, a power drill with screws and drill bits, a tape measure, a screwdriver, a level, a stud finder, and a pencil.

Step 2: Measuring

When hanging up shelves the first thing you want to do after gathering supplies is to measure out where you want the shelves to be hung. This will help give a general layout of what the finished product will look like. Most shelves are hung by plastic screws or anchors that go right into the built-in slots on the back of the shelf section. Measure the distance between these slots and use a pencil to mark them on the wall so you know where to drill.

Step 3: Drilling in the Anchors

The next step is to drill in the anchors. you want to start by using the right size drill bit and drilling a hole in the marked spots so the anchors can get through the drywall easier. once the holes have been made, drill an anchor into each hole and adjust them with a screwdriver to fit the slots.

Step 4: Putting in the Shelves

When fitting the shelves onto the anchors you want to make sure everything is level, secure, and correctly positioned so nothing looks crooked. Do this for each section until you have everything where you want it. If the shelf slot doesn't line up well enough with the anchor you can try adjusting it with the screwdriver.

Step 5: Extra Support

You may want to add some extra support depending on what will be sitting on the shelf. do this by using a stud finder and marking where each stud is located behind the shelf. Then use the power drill to put screws through the shelves and into each stud. This will help support the shelf in case the anchors are not strong enough.

Step 6: Finished Product

Once everything has been completed and the area has been cleaned this is what your finished product should look like.
