2. With the support tabs facing forward (see illustrations in
"Possible Wall Stud Configurations" in "Locate Wall Stud(s)"
section), align the mounting plate center markers to the
centerline on the wall, making sure it is level, and that the top
of the mounting plate is butted up against the bottom edge of
the upper cabinet.
NOTE: If the front edge of the upper cabinet is lower than the
back edge, lower the mounting plate so that its top is level with
the front edge of the cabinet.

Drill Holes in Rear Wall

In addition to being installed on at least 1 wall stud, the mounting
plate must attach to the wall at both bottom corner holes. If the
holes are not over wall studs, use two 1/4-20 x 3" round-head
bolts with toggle nuts; if 1 hole is over a wall stud, use 1 lag screw
and one 1/4-20 x 3" round-head bolt with toggle nut; or if both
holes are over wall studs, use 2 lag screws. Following are
3 installation configurations.
