PRODUCT

Thank you for shopping with GLTC, we hope you enjoy having this product in your home. We know assembling furniture, toys or accessories is not everyone’s favourite way to spend their time, so we’ve tried to make assembling this item as quick and painless as possible

A few important pointers before you start:

  • Please read the instructions right through before you start, and check that all the components have been included in the pack; we find separating all the hardware into piles makes it easier to be sure that everything is present and correct.
  • Make sure you have the right tools. Allen keys are provided if required, but screw drivers and other tools are not. You’ll find details of the tools you need at the beginning of the instructions.
  • It’s a good idea to build the unit in the room where you are going to be using it, to avoid the need to move it after it’s been assembled.
  • Do not throw away any packing materials until assembly is complete, just in case you accidentally discard smaller parts or hardware.

Could we do better?
If there is anything you think could be improved in these instructions or in the assembly of this product we’d be grateful if you could let us know; we’ll pass any helpful hints and tips on to other customers via our website and update the instructions.

Installation Guide

PLEASE READ BEFORE ASSEMBLING THE BOOKCASE

Hardware : You must use hardware & wall plugs that are suitable for the wall where the bookcase is to be mounted. It is not provided. Ensure you have 4 suitable length countersunk screws/hardware and that the heads of the screw locate and slide up into the narrow part of the keyhole fixing plates without pulling out. If they are needed for your wall type, also ensure that you also have the correct size and type of wall plugs for the screws you are using and that you have the correct sized drill bit too. If you are unsure, we recommend seeking professional advice before proceeding further

Tools Needed : Spirit level, pencil, tape measure, drill and drill bits to hand. Plus the hardware suited to the wall you are mounting the bookcase on.

  1. Decide where you to intend to fit the bookcase.
  2. Check the wall for pipes and cables.
  3. Take one of the side panels (either A or B) and place the panel with the outside face flat against the wall, whilst ensuring the narrow part of the keyhole fixing slot is uppermost. Ensure that the panel is vertically straight using the spirit level.
  4. Mark the position of the centre of the narrow part of the fixing slots on the wall. Mark the positions of both upper and lower keyhole fixing with a pencil.
  5. Remove the side panel from the wall and using the tape measure and spirit level, measure 784mm horizontally to mark the centres for the other two mounting points.

AFTER ASSEMBLING THE BOOKCASE

Reminder : You must use hardware & wall plugs that are suitable for the wall where the bookcase is to be mounted. It is not provided. Please see earlier guidance on the hardware required. If you are unsure, we recommend seeking professional advice before proceeding further.

  1. Check the measurements between all the centres of the keyhole fixings on the built bookcase are the same as those marked on the wall. If there is a slight difference, remeasure and adjust the wall markings until you are satisfied that these are all correct.

  2. Drill the holes in the wall and fit the wall plugs (if using).

  3. Add the screws and ensure that the head of the screw is sufficiently proud of the wall to locate into the keyhole fixing slots.

  4. Carefully take the bookcase to the 4 screws and once each is located correctly, move the unit down to secure to the wall. Each screw head may need to be adjusted in or out slightly to help with each location point.

  5. ALL 4 KEYHOLE FIXINGS MUST BE USED TO LOCATE THE BOOKCASE ON THE WALL. The bookcase can hold up to 20kgs of books.
