I bought some wall cabinets for the bathroom and when I checked for the wall
studs matching the holes, there was only one wall stud that my studfinder
could detect! I don't think there is anything wrong with the finder, as I
have two and they both read exactly the same.
Anyway, the cabinets have two holes, (horizontal) on the upper and lower
part of the cabinet. The holes on the cabinets are 13 inches apart.
I know I can install the anchors on the one stud (which will cover one side,
but will that be enough with the other two anchors in the drywall only?
Also, I am uncertain if what I have is the proper instalation instuctions
for a plastic screw anchor, could someone read this and confirm this is
Caution: Oversized holes will make it difficult to set the
anchor and will reduce the anchor's load capacity.
a.. Drill a hole in the base material using the appropriate diameter
carbide drill bit as specified in the table. Drill the hole to the specified
embedment depth plus 1/2" to allow room for the dust to settle. For flush
mount applications the hole should be drilled an additional 1/8" deeper.
Alternatively, drill the hole to the specified embedment depth and blow it
clean using compressed air. Overhead installations need not be blown clean.
b.. Insert anchor into hole. Tap with hammer until flush with surface of
c.. Position fixture; insert screw and tighten.
Again, if one set of anchors is in the stud and the other is not, will I be
safe to put up this bathroom cabinet?
The measurements are: 31H x 21W x 63/4D. Empty, I am guessing it about 10
Thanks in advance.
