Step by Step Instructions

1 Find and mark the wall studs
2 Clamp cabinets in place
3 Screw the cabinet to the wall
  • Step 1. Find and mark the wall studs

    Use a stud finder to find the timber studs in the wall. Mark the left and right edges of the stud and draw a plumb line down the centre. This is where you want to fix your cabinet. 
  • Step 2. Clamp cabinets in place

    Remove the door and basket inside the linen chute cabinet.  Put the cabinet roughly in place. Clamp it to the existing cabinet. Check the cabinet is level and plumb. You may need to adjust the feet to make it level.

  • Step 3. Screw the cabinet to the wall

    Screw the laundry chute cabinet to the wall at the marks you made to indicate stud placements. Pre drill a small hole through one cabinet into the other. Screw cabinets together using a screw that is just long enough to attach the two cabinets but short enough not stick out the other side. Reattach the door and basket.
