Installing Closet Rod on an Angles Wall PDF Print E-mail

How to deal with pitched walls

For closet rod installations where one or both walls are angled, Cape Cod style homes and attics for instance, a support block should be used to provide a vertical mounting surface for the closet rod flange.

 

__

The finished installation of the support block and mounting flange will look something like this.

 

__

First you will cut the mounting block. To determine the correct angle at which to cut follow the process shown below.

Place block against ceiling where the ceiling and wall meet. Tilt the block so it's resting against the wall. Using wither a T-square or a plumb line, mark a vertical line from the corner down. Cut the block in two.

The remaining piece will fit against the wall and provide a vertical mounting surface.

 

Drill pilot holes diagonally into the mounting block. You may want to counter-sink holes for the screw heads.

Be sure to set the screws into something solid like the rafter behind the drywall. Mounting into drywall alone is not sufficient!

After the mounting block has been secured, attatch the closet rod flange. Be sure to plan the holes for both the block and the flanges so the screws do not interfere with eachother during installation.

Using a mounting flange with a smaller base will make the installation easier. Wider flanges will of course require larger mounting blocks.
