H-G,

THE HORIZONTAL ADJUSTMENT SCREWS NEED TO BE LOOSENED TO ALLOW THE HANGING BRACKETS TO HOOK OVER THE WALL MOUNTED BRACKETS.

ONCE UNIT IS HUNG, TIGHTENING UP THESE SCREWS WILL PULL UNIT AGAINST WALL ("DO NOT FULLY TIGHTEN AT THIS STAGE").

THE VIRTICAL ADJUSTMENT SCREWS ARE USED TO ADJUST THE HEIGHT AND LEVEL OF THE UNIT/S.

YOU CAN NOW FULLY TIGHTEN THE HORIZONTAL SCREWS TO HOLD THE UNITS SECURELY IN PLACE.

SO IN CONCLUSION, IT IS BEST TO HANG ALL YOUR UNITS BEFORE ADJUSTING THEM TO ACHIEVE CONSISTANT HEIGHT AND LEVEL OF THE RUN OF UNITS AND THEN TIGHTEN HORIZONTAL SCREWS TO CLAMP INTO PLACE.

HOPE THIS HELPS YOU TO COMPLETE THE JOB.

CHEERS,

ALDA.
