Monkey Bars - Installation

Monkey Bars Storage Rack ®
Organization Rack Instructions

Thank you in your interest in the Monkey Bar Storage Rack ®, the most heavy-duty, cutting edge system for garage organization in the world.  We know you will be satisfied with this product. Here are the installation instructions so you see what you will need before you purchase. There will be instructions included with the bars as well.


Please use common sense and caution when installing this product.  Installation involves the use of power tools, drilling, hammering, and other possible hazards.

  • See your power tool safety instruction manual for proper use of your power tool before attempting to install this product.
  • Use eye protection when drilling.
  • Be sure to check for electrical wiring inside the selected wall before attempting to drill.

What you will need:

  • Stud Finder
  • Level
  • Power Drill
  • 3/16" Drill Bit
  • Pencil
  • Hammer
  • A Nail

  1. Using a stud finder, locate a stud in the wall where you would like to install the mounting bracket.  Make sure it is high enough to get all items off the floor.  Lightly tap a nail into the location determined by the stud finder to verify that a stud is where the stud finder says it is.  Find another stud the same height, approximately 48" away for the opposite mounting bracket.
  2. Using a level, align the first mounting bracket on the wall so it is level and mark the location of the two oval-shaped holes with a pencil.
  3. Using a 3/16" drill bit, drill one hole approximately 2 inches deep in each oval-shaped mark on the wall. MAKE SURE THAT YOU DRILL INTO THE CENTER OF THE STUD OR ELSE THE BRACKET WILL NOT BE FULLY SECURED INTO THE WALL.
  4. Align the mounting bracket over the drilled holes and tighten the screw with a Philips screw driver. Tighten the screw into the drilled hole until it is snug.  DO NOT OVER-TIGHTEN THE SCREWS.  See Figure 1.  (The mounting bracket is reversible--as seen by the dashed lines in Figure 2--so that the bracket can be accommodated to virtually any width of studs within the reach of the hanger bar.)
  5. Once one mounting bracket is secured to the wall, place the push button side of the hanger bar into the diamond-shaped hole on the bracket.  Slide the hanger bar into the hole and secure it by depressing the first push button and sliding the bar through the hole into the mounting bracket as shown in Figure 2.  Next, slide the other mounting bracket on to the opposite end of the hanger bar and position it approximately where the opposite stud is located.  Place a level on top of the hanger bar and adjust the unsecured mounting bracket up and down on the wall until the hanger bar is level.  Mark the opposing mounting bracket's oval holes on to the wall with a pencil. Remove the hanger bar.
  6. Repeat steps 3 and 4 for the opposite mounting bracket.
  7. Slide the non-push button side of the hanger bar in the diamond shaped hole on one of the brackets.  Slide the other side of the bar into the opposing bracket as described in step 5 (see figure 2).
  8. The hooks provided in your rack system are designed to hold a variety of items.  The "J" hook is designed to hang either down, or perpendicular to the wall.  All other hooks hang perpendicular.  By placing the shorter hooks backwards on the bar you can hang items in the back space as well.  Determine which hook will best hang your items, by utilizing the smallest hook that will work.  Position items used the most where they are most accessible.
  9. For hanging hooks on the hanger bar See Figure 3 (as seen from underneath.)  The hooks will snap on lightly allowing you to securely hang each item on a hook. 3" hooks may also be placed backwards toward the wall, this only applies to kits equipped with 3" hooks.
  10. Get your items off the floor and enjoy more free space in your garage!
