It is Saturday morning and you look forward to a trip to the lake. Then you remember the list "honey" that you wrote for yourself yesterday. The top item is HANG UP POT RACK! It had been a week since your order had come from the pot rack at the online store and you had happily cracked open packaging materials to reveal the French ink spot with shiny bronze ceiling.
"Now," you exclaimed, "I can get this kitchen organized!" After a week's disappearance on the box, which seemed to migrate around the living room, HANG UP POT RACK had catapulted to the top of the list. But how would you successfully attack this project? Successfully was the keyword, because the steps you took took you to this nice hospital and make up
"The ten best ways not to hang a jug".
1) Let me take a quick look around the kitchen to decide where I want to hang out. I guess it can go almost anywhere and we'll see that this place looks good over the sink.
No no no no! Before you even buy a stand, measure the distance between the roof beams where you want it to hang. All kettle stands, ceiling fans and chandeliers must be attached to beams. Knowing this distance will help you choose the size of the cradle.
If you have new construction, this can easily be planned before the ceiling is installed. If you already have a roof surface, such as a sheet rock, find the wood and beams using a stud finder or experiment by tapping on small nails in the roof of the roof where your roof hooks will be installed. If the roof beams are not where you decide to hang the place and you have access to the attic above the roof surface, you can nail an additional 2 x 4 span support between your roof beams if necessary so that the hooks are fixed on wood in all places. If you decide on a location without wooden beams, you must use dry wall screws and screws.
2) This is really a personal project and I can do it myself before lunch!
No no no no! Installing a brand new pot stand takes up about half a day, for someone who is quite practical or experienced. If it is not you, get help from a friend or entrepreneur. This project can be a disaster and take all day or longer.
3) There are hardly any parts. I really don't need directions. In fact, I think I threw them out when I opened the box.
No no no no! Pole bar distributors give their customers easy to read directions that contain both technical and safety instructions. But even with all instructions, an extra pair of hands and eyes is very useful. Important details such as how to properly install the chain or the maximum weight capacity of the racks can make a difference between success and disaster.
4) I know I have a tape measure, a screwdriver and a hammer. It should!
No no no no! The instructions mentioned in number three indicate all the materials you need for the job. This usually includes: screwdriver, drill, tape measure, pen, eye screws, wood glue, long wood screws, and other items such as extra 2 x 4s, nails, hammers, plate tips and stud finder. Oh yes, that extra person too.
Directions can vary depending on the company. If you do not follow these instructions and if your peg falls due to negligence, the manufacturer cannot be liable for damage or damage to you or your home.
5) It seems like I have everything I need to set up this little place. If I miss something I am sure I have some extra parts in the garage.
No no no no! You need to make sure you have the parts listed on them directions. The company delivers the hooks and chains that you need to work with the lever you bought. Some cradle stands use an enclosed ceiling mounting plate, metal or wood, which is dimensioned correctly to be centered over the area where you want to hang the place. This must be attached to the roof beams in order to securely attach the chains that your lever will hang on. If you do not have these correct parts, your rack will not hang properly or securely.
6) My roof is higher than I thought. I guess I'm just standing on this chair to get over my head.
No no no no! The chair can be secure enough to reach the height if you install a wall-mounted cradle, but when you reach over your head to attach something to a ceiling, you would be safer with a stable ladder. And the friend you should have with you can hang on the ladder as you climb.
7) Let's see, I think I should actually hang the lever over the stove instead of the sink. Then I can hang pots low enough to easily grab a cooking.
Most likely no no no no! Hanging a peg over the stove is a good idea if the pots are high enough that they are not constantly sprayed and do not get so much heat that they are too hot to handle if you want one while cooking.
8) Changed me. I think I hang it next to the stove, so that someone can go straight up to the shelf and grab what they need to cook.
Most likely no no no no! Make sure the peg rod is hung so that hanging pots will not hit your head as you walk around the kitchen.
9) I plan to hang all my pots and pans, and the three large cast iron pans in this place.
one. No no no no! There is a limit to how much you can hang on a grab bar. It depends on the size of the place, how you hung it from the ceiling and the weight capacity, according to instructions provided by the manufacturer.
10) I'm ready to go! Let me just drill a small hole in the ceiling with my new electric drill. And it is good that this light hangs next to where I want to drill …
Noooooooo, don't drill so close to the light!
Installing kitchen appliances such as hanging fans, chandeliers and pans can be done successfully if done correctly.
