3. Use a stud finder or other preferred method to locate the studs in the wall. After locating the studs on the wall mark stud locations on the wooden rail, drilling holes in the rail at the stud locations one inch from the bottom along the side with no notch.

4. Position bottom of rail on the level straight line you drew using the level or laser. Attach the rail to the wall by driving 3 inch screws through the rail into the wall studs. ATTENTION: When installing the rail to the wall make sure the side marked THIS SIDE OUT is pointing out away from the wall.

5.Starting from left wall measure along the rail to each screw to measure length of stud placement. Now using the measurement you just found, measure from right on back of cabinet the same distance to mark screw placement. Continue along the back of the cabinet to mark all screw placements on the cabinet making sure that the stud placement on rail is the same distance as the distance for the screw placement on cabinet (subtract scribe length)
.
