How to Install Iron and Board Rack

Fig.1 Iron Board Holder
By Gary Boutin

Supplies and Tools:
Iron board hanger kit: Screws, paper template, plastic anchors
Claw hammer
Phillip screwdriver-manual
Torpedo level

Mrs. D wanted an iron and board frame installed in her home. She was fed up with the iron falling off the dryer and or the iron board falling behind her laundry door. She called my repair service to install the iron board kit.

This post shows the six steps to install the iron board metal frame.

Step 1: Fig.1 shows the frame of the iron board hanger.
Step 2: Fig.2 through fig.5 shows the progression of punching a hole into the wallboard. Use the new iron board metal frame for the exact location for the holes or the paper template that comes with the packaging. If by chance the driver hits a wood stud, do not use the plastic hanger just screw into the wall the metal screw.

and hammer the anchor
Step 3: Fig.6 shows that after the holes are punched out use the plastic anchors with metal screws.

Step 4: Fig.7 shows the metal frame that will hang on top of the screws. Use a Torpedo level to make sure the frame is level.

Step 5: Fig.8 and fig.9 shows the metal screws are tightened against the metal frame so that it will hold the clothe equipment. If you have the chance to use metal screws into the wood studs that would be the best bet for a strong frame. This iron board frame was not in the wood studs and only being held by the wall anchors.
