This is the most bizarre product.
Firstly, it came securely wrapped in an Amazon box which would have held 18 of the items.
It was labelled as:
Easy wall fixing - FALSE
Fixings included - FALSE
Assembly guide included - FALSE
If the assembly guide had been included, the other two wouldn't have mattered. Without it I wasted 2 hours of my life on this badly designed and shoddily packaged piece of equipment.
By the way, it also comes with screws which are so short that you need to hold onto about a millimetre whilst screwing in! I advise using a bit of blue-tack.
But when on the wall, the product functions well and looks good. So here are ESSENTIAL instructions.
When measuring your holes in the wall, take extreme care NOT to make them at all wider than the fixings are, attached to the rod, as supplied. Even a fraction of a millimetre will cause you to repeat your work. ERR TO HAVING YOU HOLES SOMETHING LIKE HALF A MILLIMETRE TOO SHORT.
When you've fixed the 'L' shaped pieces to the wall (with the flat bit at the bottom), *MOST IMPORTANT* loosen (but don't remove) the holders from the rod. Next, address the holders to the L-shapes and screw in (from the bottom). Finally tighten the holders to the rod (again from the bottom).
Your troubles should be over. It looks good!
