3. Install the Brackets

Mark the spot of the brackets on your brackets and move the drill holes of the bracket to the wall.

Anchors that are at least ¼” thick and 2 ½”-3 ½” long are ideal for this job. After the holes are drilled, hammer the anchors and install the brackets using the provided hardware.
