Please Note: We are providing general guidelines for a standard installation as we cannot account for the individuality of the site or items you may be working with.
- The most important tool to use when installing a corner sink is a licensed plumber. Most manufacturers will not accept warranty claims on items not installed by a licensed plumber.
- Power Drill
- Tape Measurer
- Phillips Screwdriver
- Allen Wrench
- A standard shower rod is installed from the center of the shower hub.
- The standard height is 5 ft. starting from the shower hub. From the center of the shower hub you will measure 3” back and 5 ft. in height and mark your measurements on both walls.
- Disassemble the mounting plate so that you are holding the wall plate and swivel connector.
- Place the wall plate onto the wall. Pencil in the holes on the mounting plate to the marked measurement on the wall.
- If you have tile: use a plug anchor (not included). Using a ¼” drill bit, drill holes into the marked areas on the wall and tap the anchor into the hole.
- If you have sheetrock or wall board: use a decorator anchor. Use a Phillips drill bit to screw the anchor with the power drill into the wall.
- Place the wall plate onto the wall and drill the screws into each plate.
- With the tape measurer, measure the distance from the center of each wall plate.
- Loosen the set screw on the swivel connectors with the allen wrench.
- Place the swivel connectors on each end of the rod.
- Measure the rod from center to center of each swivel connector in a straight line.
- Remove one of the swivel connectors. Subtract measurements in step 8 from step 11 to determine your cutting measurement and mark the area on the rod.
- Use a hacksaw to cut through the shower rod.
- Clean up the sharp edges with a file.
- Place the swivel connector on the cut end of the shower rod.
- Mount each swivel connector onto the wall plates and tighten with a Phillips screwdriver.
- Use an allen wrench to tighten the set screws.
