How To Install A Wire Closet Organizer

With a little planning, you can transform even the most disorganized of closets into a space that neatly and efficiently stores your pants, shirts and shoes. All it takes is a wire closet organizer and following these steps to install them.

Put out the old before bringing in the new. First, empty the closet you want to organize, including all the old shelves, rods and doors before bringing in the wire closet organizer. This would be an opportune time to purge the contents as well, making refilling it later much easier.

Time to install the shelves of your new wire closet organizer. Going from the bottom up, choose the space between the floor and the bottom shelf and then continue installing the shelves at intervals appropriate for what you intend to store in the closet.

Finish the job with a hanging rod. Once you get all your shelves in place where you want them, you can snap in the hanger supports and install the rod.

Try to mount the tracks in a wall stud whenever possible for greater load bearing. If necessary, reinforce the tracks with toggle bolts before mounting your wire closet organizer.
