not available). Mark the floor or wall where left or right side
of the range will be located. If rear of range is against the
wall or no further than 1-1/4" from wall when installed, you

of the screw holes in wall. If rear of range is further than
1-1/4" from the wall when installed, attach bracket to the
floor. For floor mount, locate the bracket by placing back
edge of the template where the rear of the range will be
located. Mark the location of the screw holes, shown in
B. Drill Pilot Holes and Fasten Bracket - Drill a 1/8" pilot
hole where screws are to be located. If bracket is to be
mounted to the wall, drill pilot hole at an approximate 20°
downward angle. If bracket is to be mounted to masonry
or ceramic floors, drill a 3/16" pilot hole 1-3/4" deep. The
screws provided may be used in wood or concrete material.
Use a 5/16" nut-driver or flat head screwdriver to secure the
bracket in place.
