To install the shelf, start by marking the stud locations on the wall. Hold the shelf in place against the wall and transfer the stud locations onto the mounting cleat. Drill a screw-shank clearance hole through the cleat at each stud location. Hold the shelf back in position, check it for level, and then drive 3-inch screws with finishing washers through the cleat and into the studs. Cut a ¾-inch-thick x 2-inch-wide mounting cleat to fit inside the box shelf. The cleat provides an easy way to screw the shelf to the wall.
