Step 3. Center one cleat so
the square edge is flush with the top and bottom of the bookcase. Use
wood screws to attach it to the bookcase, with the angled points facing
down. Be sure to screw into the bookcase frame, not just the backing
Center the top of the
wall cleat against the line marked on the wall, with the angled point
facing up. Attach the cleat to the wall by driving 2˝” dry- wail screws
through it and into the studs as marked.
Step 4. Measure the height of
the bookcase, and draw or shoot a level line onto the wall in the area
where the bookcase will be anchored, flush with the top and as wide as
the bookcase. Using a stud finder, locate and mark the studs above the
line. If you are working near the ceiling, allow enough space for the
top cleat to clear the bottom cleat.
Step 6. Lift the bookcase and
settle the bookcase cleat onto the wall cleat. Adjust the bookcase until
it’s secure against the wall.
