An Easy Installation Even For Me - the Mechanically Challenged!

Me and the InfinityThis week I decided that I would try to install a WarmlyYours product entirely by myself. We talk a lot about how easy our products are to install, so I decided that it was time for me to put it to the test. My thinking was that if I can figure out how to do this on my own, surely anyone could.

Let me tell you a little bit about my background. I’m female (not that they aren’t very capable, mechanically inclined women out there, I’m just not one of them) and I was busy taking dance lessons as a kid – I wasn’t helping my Dad fix things out in the garage. Even now, when the DVD player is on the fritz, I call my husband in to deal with it. Patience is NOT one of my virtues!

Anyways, back to the point. I decided to start with a towel warmer because it seemed like the least complicated product to install. And, I’m happy to say, it went smoothly. Here’s how it all went down.

Step 1 - I put the towel warmer together (it was a little confusing to figure out the brackets, being totally unfamiliar with hardware, but I did) and then laid the towel warmer on a piece of cardboard and marked the placement of all the brackets and the electrical box. The install manual recommended using the towel warmer shipping box as the cardboard template.

Step 2 - Then, I used the template to figure out where to mark the wall so that I could hang the towel warmer (for me this was easy since I did it on a practice wall at our office). There are only a couple very important rules. First, at least 2 of the 4 brackets must be installed in a stud. Secondly, for the plug-in model only, it must be installed no more than 6 feet away from a grounded outlet or the plug won’t reach.

Step 3 - I installed 2 brackets in a stud and anchored the other 2 brackets that were not being installed in a stud.

Step 4 - I attached the towel warmer to the brackets.

Step 5 - I didn’t actually perform the final step which was the electrical hookup because it actually requires an electrician, but I did set everything up for that step.

Voila, done! This exercise was a little confusing for a novice such as me, but overall it was pretty easy. Next project, a fusion reactor!

Thank you for your instructions on how to install your towel rack. It is nice to know that it is easy enough for a regular person to install. When you are married to a contractor they make it look easy, but then when you go and try to do it, it usually isn't.
