Storage Cabinet to a Stack-
Track Rail
This booklet explains how to mount a Storage Cabinet (models CADET-7203,
CGO-372, DXSL-372, HDGS-372, and SO-372) using the Stack-Track mounting
system. (An example of these cabinets is shown in Figure 1.)

Deciding Where to Mount the Stack-Track Rails
To mount a Storage Cabinet, you will need to install                   with the bottom of the cabinet, and the top
three Stack-Track rails on the wall. To determine the                  of the upper rail will be level with the top

  Step 2: Mark the positions of any objects in the
          wall such as electrical wiring, conduit, or                                                31 inches

Drilling Holes in the Back of the Cabinet
Important: We strongly advise that you wear safety glasses during this procedure.
Perform the following steps to drill the mounting holes in the back of the cabinet:                                                      awl
 Step 1: Lay the cabinet face down so that the back is facing up.
  Step 2: On the back of the cabinet, measure the locations for the holes as shown in
           Figure 9 (below), and use a scratch awl to mark the locations with an X, as
           shown in Figure 10 (at right).
  Note:    Make the hole locations level with the top of the cabinet. Check the hole                                  Figure 10: Marking

  Note:    If a hole already exists in the exact location where you are marking, mark it by
           scratching a circle around the hole.

  Step 3: At each of the hole locations you have marked, create a small dimple by striking the spot with a
          hammer and a center punch, as shown in Figure 11.
  Step 4: Check to make sure that the dimple you have made is at the center of the X you marked. If the dimple
          is not properly centered, then make another dimple using the hammer and center punch again.
  Step 5: Check to make sure that the dimple you have
          made is deep enough to prevent the drill bit from
          slipping when drilling. You can test this by                                                                drill bit
          placing the drill bit in the dimple, as shown in
          Figure 12. If the dimple is not deep enough, then                                    punch
          make the dimple deeper using the hammer and
          center punch again.

Attaching the Brackets to the Cabinet
Perform the following steps to attach the mounting brackets to the cabinet:

  Step 1: Use four carriage bolts and four lock nuts from the hanging kit to attach
          one of the outside brackets and one of the inside brackets to the upper
          mounting holes you have drilled in the back of the cabinet, as shown in
          Figure 15 below. Tighten both lock nuts securely.
  Step 2: Attach a pair of inside and outside brackets to the middle row of holes
          in the back of the cabinet, as shown in Figure 15 below. Position the
          middle brackets so that they are as high in the mounting holes as
          possible, as shown in Figure 16 (at right). Then only tighten the lock
                                                                                                               Figure 16: Positioning
