You may need

  • Measuring tape
  • (2) 2x6-8FT stringers
  • (2) 6' 2X10 boards

  • (16) to (20) 3/8" x 4" lag screws with washers to attach stringers to wall studs
  • Additional lag screws or bolts with washers to mount the four brackets into the stringer boards
  1. First unpack/break down the boxes and then use tape measuring for the stringers. Then, locate the center of the studs and measure where the stringers will attach. Decide where the mounting brackets would be placed stringers.
  2. Next attach the bottom and top stringers then we attach the mounting brackets (you may need small screws first then use lag screws).
  3. Next measure from the floor surface for stall mats, put them down prior to drilling your pilot holes and installing stringers.
  4. Next drill 15/64" pilot holes for the 3/8" lag screws and 5/16" pilot holes for the 1/2" lag screws. As for installation, double-check measurements prior to drilling.
  5. You may have to drill through concrete for the bottom hangers; install bottom two rig mounts into cement foundation lip; then install top hangers and rig hardware.
Note that Rogue does NOT recommend installing its fold back mount racks on a wood, drywall, or metal stud wall without a stringer or additional support.
