All of the holes in the broom cupboard kit have been pre-drilled. Start by inserting the pins into the holes in the top panel. You can tighten them using the cordless drill. Insert the silver cam locks into the larger holes, making sure the arrow on the lock is pointing to the outside of the panel.
Insert the six silver cam locks into the fixed shelf, making sure the arrows point away from the panel. Now insert the three pins and tighten them with the cordless drill. Turn the panel onto its side, fit the side panel and tighten the three cams locks with a screwdriver.
The middle panel separates the broom storage section from the cupboard shelving. To put this panel in, turn the cabinet over on its front and insert the three cam locks into the top of the middle panel. Then slide it into place, using the pins at the bottom of the fixed shelf, and tighten off the three cam locks.
Lay the second side panel on top of your assembled cupboard. Insert the pins and tighten them with a screwdriver. Insert the silver cam locks, again making sure the arrows are pointing away from the panel. Then lift the side panel into place, by inserting the pins into the holes in the top panel, fixed shelf and at the bottom of the cupboard. Tighten all of the cam locks.
There are pre-drilled holes on both sides of the bottom panel. One side is for the pins, the other for the feet. Insert the nine pins into their holes and tighten them with the drill. Insert the pins into the side and middle panels and tighten the cam locks to secure the panel. Make sure the white laminate is facing inside the cupboard.
The cupboard feet have a slight angle on one side, when you attach them these point towards the outside of the cabinet. Drill them into the holes in the bottom of the cupboard. Then insert the four adjustable feet into the base. Use your set square to adjust the feet so that they are all 145mm.
There are two back panels that need attaching to the cupboard. Make sure the white laminated surfaces faces the inside of the cupboard. Lay the first panel flush to one side of the cupboard and nail it into the recess. Repeat this process with the second back panel. Once the back panels are on, ask for some help to lift the cupboard onto its feet.
Before attaching the door hinges you need to separate the plate from the hinge. You do this by clicking on the button on the end of the hinge and pulling the plate away. The holes for the door hinges have been predrilled. Use the cordless screwdriver to secure the three hinges near the top, middle and bottom of the cupboard door.
You will notice there are pre-drilled holes for the plates on both sides of the cupboard, so you can choose whether your cupboard door opens to the left or right. Attach the three hinge plates using a drill and the screws provided. Don't secure the plates too tightly because they might need adjusting.
Given its size you may need someone to help you to hang the door. You can hang the door simply by clicking the hinges into the plates on the inside of the cupboard. You may need to adjust the hinges so that the door is flush. The door can be adjusted up and down by loosening the screws on the plates. You then get the door to the right height and re-tightening the screws. The two screws on the hinge adjust the door left and right.
Asbestos, lead-based paints and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber are health hazards you need to look out for when renovating older homes. These substances can easily be disturbed when renovating and exposure to them can cause a range of life-threatening diseases and conditions including cancer. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer or visit our Health & Safety page.
