STEP 1

Measure and Mark

Measure the distance between the mounting holes on the coat rack. 

STEP 2

Measure the desired height on the wall where the coat rack will hang and make the appropriate marks on the wall with a pencil.

STEP 3

Mark Spacing of Mounting Holes

Hold the tape measure at the desired height and make two small vertical marks on the wall for the mounting holes based on the measurement from step 1.

STEP 4

Mark Horizontal Placement

Use a level to make two horizontal marks with a pencil that intersect with the vertical marks, creating a "+" sign.

STEP 5

Drill the Holes

Use a drill with a 1/4” drill bit to drill holes in the wall where you have marked the two "+" signs.

STEP 6

Place Drywall Anchors

Use a hammer to lightly tap the drywall anchors into each hole.

STEP 7

Mount and Secure

Hold up the coat rack, and align the mounting holes with the drywall anchors.  Secure the coat rack to the wall by driving 2” wood screws into each anchor."
