Step 1-Check List
The Nice Rack Heavy Duty Ceiling rack comes with all the parts you will need to get your board ready to hang, and best of all installation is EAZY. Be sure to check out the heavy duty lag bolts, we chose the strongest to match the toughness of the rack. Here are the parts that come with every ceiling rack:
2x Powder Coated Steel Arms
4x Heavy Duty Mounting Bolts
Step 2-Locate Rafters
The most important step in mounting your racks will be to make sure they are mounted to a secure surface. Most walls are covered with a soft-dry wall material, and this goes for ceilings too. Make sure you are mounting your racks to the rafters, structures behind the drywall layer of your ceiling. To find your rafters you may want to use a stud finder, or gently knock on the wall. Sometimes looking in the attic will help you find your rafters.
Step 3-Measure & Mount
Once your rafters have been located, decide how far apart you want to space your racks. Don't forget pilot holes, they will guide the bolt as you tighten your rack.
Tip: get one one bolt loosely in place and use it to guide the drilling of your second pilot hole.
Using a ratchet tighten the bolts through the rack into your pilot holes. Make sure the rack is snug, but DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN. Repeat the process of securing the first arm for the second, and your new Nice Rack Ceiling Surfboard Rack is ready for action! Using a ladder or sturdy step-stool place your board flat in the arms. When desired grab it and head for the beach!
Tip: Some longboards can be heavy and hard to mount by yourself. While standing on the ladder or step-stool have a friend pass you the surfboard.
