Before you drill, make sure there are no electrical wires or plumbing behind the wall. Follow safety precautions by wearing safety goggles and a dust mask when disturbing walls. This information is offered only as a guideline. Always follow the instructions that came with your safety brackets.
Step 2: Mark a Spot for the Safety Bracket Mark the position of the furniture on the wall and look for the nearest stud. Safety brackets should only be screwed into the wooden wall studs behind the wallboard.
Determine where the bracket should go on the wall.
Step 3: Find a wall stud before you attach the bracket. You can find wall studs by using a stud finder or by locating the nail depressions in baseboards or ceiling moldings where they have been tacked to the stud. Studs are typically spaced every 16 inches.
A stud finder will light up as it passes over a concealed stud.
Step 7: Attach bracket to furniture Decide where you want the furniture to meet the wall and align the second bracket to meet the first. Attach the second bracket to the piece of furniture using the screws provided. Align the two brackets and lace the detachable security strap through the brackets.
Attach the second bracket to the furniture and lace the security strap through each piece.
Step 8: Secure the furniture and trim the strap Feed the safety strap through each of the brackets and pull it tight to secure the piece of furniture to the wall. Trim the excess strap with wire cutters.
