Rackitfile™ mounts easily to most surfaces and comes with
wood/particle board screws, the best drywall anchors on the market
and a mounting template with instructions. A mounted Rackitfile
protrudes 6 inches from the wall and fully loaded is 21 inches
from top to bottom (the unit itself is 12 ¾” tall).
If you are concerned about weight, the straight pullout weight
rating for the whole unit mounted with our drywall anchors is
90 lbs with a shear of 140 lbs. In other words you would run out
of space before you could put too much weight in a Rackitfile.
A Rackitfile is designed to utilize vertical space almost doubling
the overall horizontal filing space which means you almost have
12 inches of filing space. Even if you do need more room, the
Walfile System is expandable by just adding more Rackitfile units.
- 1. In the place you wish to mount your RACKITFILE™ tape
the mounting stencil on all four corners flat to the surface
ensuring the stencil is level.
- 2. Using a pin or nail, poke through the stencil at the mounting
hole locations (+) to mark the wall for either standard or legal
- 3. Remove the stencil making note of the mounting hole locations.
- 4. To avoid complications, bang the nail provided through
the drywall at the mounting hole locations to ensure there is
no support structure behind the drywall to interfere with the
drywall anchors. If the nail does not hammer through freely
adjust all the mounting hole locations 2” to left or right.
- 5. Using constant pressure, slowly screw the drywall anchors
into the drywall at the marked locations until they are flush
with the wall surface.
- 6. Place the RACKITFILE™ on the wall with the mounting
brackets facing inward and fasten to the wall with the large
2 1/8” screws provided. (Please note: To anchor the RACKITFILE™
to the wall securely the screws need to be tightened firmly
in order to fully activate the wall anchor locking device –
see diagram.) Fine adjustment can be made by loosening the screws
to move the RACKITFILE™ sides in or out.
For Wood/Particle Board continue…
Note: For best results pre-drill
holes with a 1/16” to 3/32” drill bit
- 4. Place the RACKITFILET™ on the surface over the marked
locations with the mounting brackets facing inward and fasten
to the surface using the small 1/2” screws provided. Fine
adjustment can be made by loosening the screws to move the RACKITFILE™
sides in or out.
