Assembling these handy Shoe Cubby units is a snap! Below are some images of how it’s done.
Tools you will need
- Safety Glasses
- A hand drill
- An 1/8th inch drill bit
- A stud finder
- A #2 square drive bit
Using your 1/8th in. drill, drill thru the holes indicated by the illustration, keep left and right panels separate, so as not to mix them together.
Lay bottom panel and a shelf on their sides, align position 1’s pilot and screw hole then tighten until barely loose, then do the same with position 2.
Align the bottom panel with a top panel, and 2 shelf’s. Screw in thru the pre-drilled holes in the pairs as illustrated by the bold lines in the illustration. Tighten screws until barely loose
NOTE: Do not tighten screws completely until cubby is assembled, this side panels settle flush once standing, otherwise a gap may be formed between the side panels,
Now align shelves pilot holes with the holes on the top panel, it the same fashion as Step 2.
To attach the other side’s “side panels”, repeat steps 2 through 4.
Then fully tighten screws to top and bottom shelves, snug middle shelves’ screws until barely loose.
Stand up your partially assembled shoe cubby system, adjust the side panels to where they meet flush with each other and have no gap between them, then fully tighten all remaining screws.
Using your stud finder, locate the studs (typically, wall studs are 16 inches apart from each other) , level the unit, and secure the cubby system to at least 1 stud using a 3 inch screw. Screw thru the top, middle, and bottom of the rear shelf rail and into the wall studs. If a wall stud cannot be located, use drywall anchors according to manufacturer’s recommendations.
Insert shelf pegs at desired shelf locations, front and back peg must be 3 holes apart as show in the illustration. The back peg should fit in the notch of the back of the shelf, the front of the shelf will just rest on the front peg.
Shelves can always be removed and relocated.
