1. Decide where you’d like your hook to go
Once you’ve got a spot, take your backing plate and your pencil and mark where your screws will go.
2. Drill pilot holes
Using your drill, drill some pilot holes for your screws. We’ve used wall mates for our hook (as we’re not mounting over a wall stud) – you can grab some from Bunnings, or from your hook kit if they come with them. Make sure your drill bit is slightly smaller than the width of your wallmates. Manually push the wallmates in.
3. Screw your backing plate in
Once your wall mates are in, you’re ready to screw your backing plate in – use your drill for this bit.
4. Place your hook on the wall
Once in place, tighten with an Allen key. If you don’t have one, fear not! You can buy a nifty set, they come complete with every size key you’ll ever need. Trust us – they’re a godsend.
5. Time to hang out
Your hook is up! And you can now use it to hang towels or clothes, or get creative and use it as a pot hanger or for fairy lights. Just make sure you don’t exceed the maximum weight recommended.
