3A STEP-BY-STEP APPROACH TO AN elfa® CLOSET INSTALLATION The following photographs will allow you to view an entire installationfrom start to finish. Without a doubt, the most important part of any elfa®project is the correct installation of the elfa® Top Track. After all, theentire system hangs from and depends on this important first step.Marking the holes for drilling for the anchorsRequires making sure the top track is LEVEL.Place track at desired heightLevelMark holes for drilling
4Hanging The elfa® Top Track B.C.Hanging The elfa® Top TrackIt is a good idea to determine what is on thebackside of the wall in order to ensure you donot drill into pipes or wires.Drill marked holesInsert elfa anchorsHang track, check with levelTighten screws with power drillIMPORTANT: Use power drill at low speed to firmly seat plasticmolly and to avoid stripping the screw heads. The anchormust seat firmly to the back of the sheet rock.D.
5Placing The elfa® Standards and Brackets This approach is quick and in most cases ensures thatyou will not have to redo placement of brackets due toincorrect placement.A. Hang all standards needed to complete stretchof wall and group together.B.-D. Refer to your drawing and place brackets intoslots. Use a tape measure as shown, or count slots inorder to find precise placement.Spread standards to specified widths or 2 ft. centers toaccommodate the ventilated shelves.E.
6Installing The elfa® Ventilated Shelf • Ventilated Shelves have a top and a bottom - the middlesupport wire is connected at the bottom of the shelf• Install the Ventilated Shelves from shortest to longest,regardless of their location in the space. This will help inmeasuring.• Lock the Shelf into place by pressing down on the middleof the Shelf and pushing toward the wall. (Figure E)To Remove A Shelf• Hold the Hanging Standard steady with one hand. Placethe other hand at the back of the Shelf. Pull up and forwardon the shelf to release.
7Installing The elfa® décor Fascia Position the Fascia with the opening facing the ventilated shelf. The notch in the Fascia that hooks onto the front support wires of the ventilated shelf should be at the top. Hook over top wire with a downward motion, secure it to the front of the shelf.Use the included clips to secure the Fascia to the ventilated shelf – the top of the clip has a groove that holds one shelf wire.B.Once it is attached to theunderside of the shelf wire,slide it all the way to thefront of the shelf and into theopening of the Fascia for asecure hold.C.
8Installing The elfa® décor Hanging Drawers and Gliding Pant Racks A. Install the U-Shaped Metal Glide – all décor gliding components utilize the same U-Shaped Metal Glide. This piece has three metal tabs and a metal knob on each side (on the top) that locks the glide into the Bracket.Begin with the left Bracket. Align the metal tabs on the Glide with the cut-out notches of the Bracket. When aligned, hold the front of the bracket and press on the Glide at the back rounded corner until you hear it lock into place – then repeat on the right side.B. To remove the glide, place one hand at the back of the Glide, with your thumb on the hanging standard, gently push the glide forward with your fingers. Insert and twist a small flat head screwdriver between the Bracket and Glide – it should pop out from the Bracket.
9Installing The elfa® décor Hanging Drawers and Gliding Pant Racks Install the Gliding AccessoriesAlign the rollers on each side of the frame with the openings in the U-ShapedMetal Glide. Slide the wood frame into the glide.DrawersAlways start with the bottom drawers and work up. Insert the Drawer in the frame openingand attach it to the left and right side of the wood frame with the Drawer Clips provided.If you would like more space between the drawers, just move them to the desired position.
10elfa® Ventilated Shelf System, Accessories and Finish Pieces The elfa system has many accessories and finish pieces that add to the overall functionality and design. A few of these are shown in the photos:A. Closet rod holders that fit into the bottom of the ventilated shelf bracket.B. Placing shelf bracket covers for a clean look.A.B.C. Placing ventilated shelf liners used to keep items from slipping through wires.D. Placing Top Track Covers which hide screw heads.E. Drawer liners relieve “waffle effect” on clothing in drawer.C.D.E.
11The Completed elfa® Project With Drawing As you can see, the placement of some items changed – easy to do with elfa® modular system – on 2’ centers, many parts are inter-changeable.BEFOREAFTER
