• Keep a clean damp cloth available to wipe off excess glue. The
  glue is difficult to remove when it dries, especially in the corners,         9. Align the Back (B) over the two sides
  so pay extra attention during the assembly.                                     making sure the single hole in the center     Photo 7

• If a nail bends, pull it out and use a straight one. Do not try to
  straighten a bent nail.                                                      11. Lay the assembly back side down on the
