KEYHOLE BRACKET INSTALLATION
If you order a live edge magnetic knife holder, there is some installation required to hang it on the wall. It's not difficult, but you do need a couple tools and to follow a few steps!
You will need the following tools for the bracket installation: a pencil, a level, a Phillips screwdriver, a tape measure and a drill.
Choose Wall Fasteners
You will also need to choose the proper type of wall fastener/anchor for your needs…for example-wood, masonry or drywall. Whenever possible it is always a good idea to locate and utilize wall studs.
First, determine the location you would like the shelf on the wall by measuring up from the floor and lightly mark the desired location on the wall with your pencil.
Using a pencil, make a light marking on the top of the shelf above the two keyholes (Fig. 1) or where you want to install your 2 keyhole brackets.
Position the shelf against the wall and level. Once the shelf is level, mark the wall in the same place where you marked the shelf (Fig. 2A ) or brackets (Fig. 2B ) above the keyhole
Using the drill and a 7/32 bit, make two holes in wall and insert the proper hardware.
Make sure to leave approximately 0.25” overhang when inserting the screws (do not fully insert) Fig. 3
