Understanding the Product

 

Gun Storage Support Bar Installation

Gun Storage Panel Support Bar Installation

At the top of each row of panels, there must be a Support Bar product (SB-23, SB-36, SB-72). The proper way to install the SB is with the row of mounting holes at the top.

Wall panels attach directly to the Support bar and then you mount the bottom of each Wall panel to the wall. Our system allows an endless variety of configurations.

Additional Panels

Lower panels attach to upper panels with the mounting pegs and holes.

VERY IMPORTANT

No matter where you choose to install the racks, they must be installed into wall studs or supports. Drywall, by itself cannot support the racks. The wall support possibility could be wood 2x4's, 2x6's, metal studs, steal beams, cement walls, cinder block, etc. You must make sure all the mounting hardware gets secured into these supports.

ALSO VERY IMPORTANT

This rack system MUST be installed into a secured location. This way your guns remain safe and locked up, away from anyone that should not have access to them.

1. Pre Planning

When you are preparing to start the installation, make sure you have about 1" on the left hand side of the rack between it and the wall or cabinet etc...This will allow you to install the panels to each other. This will make more sense if you scroll down and see how they attach.

NOTE: If you have custom cuts panels, its best to lay out the top row of your rack and get an exact width. This will make sure you center it properly on the wall where it will be installed. Because of how they mount, we leave about an inch open when making the custom cuts.

2. Hang Support Bar

Put your first Support Bar (SB-36 or SB-72) up. Make sure it's level and the screws go all the way through into the 2x4's or wall supports. You will need to supply this hardware since we don't know what you are mounting to..

3. Hang First Wall Panel

Now attach your first Wall Panel (WP-24.36, WP-24.24 or WP-48.5) to the Support Bar with the provided screws (skinny, self-tappers). Locate the top side which will always have the key hole. Place the panel onto the support bar then screw into the support bar using the self tappers provided. Always start your wall panel system on the right then work to the left.

4. Screw Bottom of Wall Panel

Next Screw the bottom of the Wall Panels into the wall making sure to go into the 2x4's or wall supports. The bottom will always have the mounting strip. You need to supply this hardware to fit your application.

5. Hang Next Support Bar and Panel

Now install your next Support Bar (either SB-36 or SB-72) and attach the first Wall Panel onto that. Make sure these panels are square and level to the Wall Panels on the first Support bar. If these need to be adjusted, the best way is to loosen the second Support Bar and adjust that up and down until all the Wall Panels are lined up. Once everything is aligned, screw in the bottom of the last 2 panels you mounted.

6. Hang Lower Panels

Now connect your next row of Wall Panels to the bottom of the first row you just installed starting on the right side of the wall. There are mounting tabs on the bottom of the panels you just installed that fit into your next panel. Lock the next panel into the keyhole this eliminates the need for another support bar.

8. Configure & Install

Once the Panels are up, its time to configure and install all the hangers. Make sure they are all in the right place and fit your guns the way you want them to. Use the supplied screws (short stubby ones) and secure the hangers onto the wall panels. If you have the trim strips, they can be installed now on top and bottom of your rack system.
