How To Install A Shoe Rack

Shoes, shoes, shoes!! Whether you have a little or a lot, we all need somewhere to store them!
ClosetMaid shoe racks are a really versatile way of creating shoe storage on any free wall space in your home or garage.

This step by step photo guide shows how to install one shoe rack. Using the ClosetMaid 12" (30.5cm) deep Heavy Duty shelving, you can create multiple shoe racks stacked vertically, or on separate walls to make the most of your available storage space.

See how you can do it too, below:


Step 1 - Measure and install wall clips.


Step two - Cut shelf to required size and finish with end caps.


Step Three - Position Shoe Shelf Supports


Step Four - Twist supports to sit properly in between the deck wires of your shelf.


Step Five - Slide bracket so that back clip connects with rear wire of the shelf.


Step Six - Line up your shelf with installed wall clips and snap into place.




When stacking Shoe racks vertically, we recommend that you space them around 20cm - 25cm (8"- 10") apart to leave enough room for your shoes and access to them. If storing boots, you will need to allow more than this.
