but OWL HOOTS, a specialty hardware item.
It’s really a fancy nut and bolt.
When I used these to connect cabinets we called them case
connectors or sex-bolts, but when I bought a box of them
from Gordy at General Threaded in SE Portland he
called them OWL HOOTS which sounds much better.
The CLOUD LIFT pot rack FRAME comes fully assembled.
After you’ve adjusted your slats, it’s time to attach the upper part-
the hanging assembly to the frame below.
You’ll be connecting the 4 black metal braces to the
Hanger bar -(the long wooden beam that has the large hooks
attached to the top) with 2 OWL HOOTS.
WHEN YOU’RE DONE
SO GRAB AN OWL HOOT, 2 metal braces and the hanger bar.
Push the bolt through the hole in the top of the metal brace
and then into the hole in the hanger bar.
Note; the top of the brace is labelled with a “T”
Now take the 2nd brace and from the other side of the hanger bar
push the nut through the hole in the brace and into the hole.
This is easier with a helper.
Now simply thread the bolt into the nut and
tighten with the 2 Allen wrenches.
The CLOUD LIFT pot rack comes with (2) 4mm Allen wrenches.
use 1 to tighten the bolt and the other to keep the
nut from turning.
Now repeat all this with the other 2 braces.
DID YOU NOTICE that the hanger bar has 4 holes in it?
The 2 holes near the outer ends of the hanger bar are for
the large S-hooks- so be sure and use the inner
holes for the owl hoots.
The rest is easy but don’t let your helper go just yet.
You want to position this upper assembly over the rack
below without scratching the wood.
Now take 1 of the round head Philps screws ( Mr. Henry F. Philips
was from Portland) and put it through the hole in the bottom
of the brace and into the pre-drilled hole in the frame.
Do the same with the other 3 screws and you’re done.
