Hang-It-Yourself™ will revolutionize the cabinet hanging process. For the do-it-yourselfer, it turns the daunting job of wall cabinet hanging into a manageable task. For the professional installer, the system provides a superior installation and increases productivity while maintaining the structural integrity of any manufactured cabinet.
As a professional home inspector for 30 years, the inventor of the HIY system had looked at well over 10,000 homes. A common problem that he found on many of these homes was with manufactured wall cabinets. The issues typically were not with the cabinets themselves, but with their installation.
Wall framing irregularities and improper fastener installation often caused separation of wall cabinet backs from their frames or from the walls to which they were attached. Once this happened, the structural integrity of many manufactured wall cabinets was compromised.
Hanging rail systems that eliminate most of these problems for wall cabinets have been around for years but they have only been available for cabinets that were designed to accommodate a particular system. But now, essentially any framed, frameless, pre-assembled or Ready-To-Assemble (RTA) cabinet can be hung with European-like simplicity and speed on an American style wall rail system without any design modifications to the cabinets.
You no longer have to measure, calculate, re-measure and then pre-drill each wall cabinet for stud alignment. Nor do you have to remove cabinet doors and support a cabinet with a wall cleat or a second pair of hands while leveling and securing the cabinet in place.
The sturdy wall rail ensures a level cabinet installation and provides the flexibility of being able to hang and adjust all of the wall cabinets prior to final attachment. The cabinet mounting bracket design provides uniform vertical alignment and allows the typically cumbersome job of cabinet attachment to be done with picture hanging ease.
The T-nut fasteners that secure the brackets to the cabinets capture over twice the surface area of a typical mounting screw. The brackets distribute the load more evenly along the cabinet’s rear wall, rather than just at a wall stud. With the cabinets fully suspended on the wall rail, the faces can easily be aligned and attached to one another.
