Installing a Universal Corner Quickstart Kit in a Right-Turn Configuration


Download the PDF Instructions here!

Decide the height at which you would like your Universal Corner Quickstart Kit to be installed.

We recommend 82-84 inches in a typical scenario. However, your ceiling height or specific needs may vary. The Rhino Shelf must be mounted 26 inches below the ceiling to allow for the diagonal support to function correctly.

Once a height is established, mark that height on your wall. Then, locate the studs in your installation area.

*Note: Most homes are built with the studs located 16 inches apart. In some cases, the studs are 24 inches apart. The Rhino Shelf easily accommodates both of these scenarios.
Draw a level, horizontal line in the length you intend to install (4', 8', 12', etc.).
Starting the Installation on the Right Wall
Begin with the Right-Wall-Start Part.

Place the RWS-Part against the wall on the right side of your installation area with the top of the bracket aligned with your level line. On the RWS-Part, mark the stud locations and drive the included lag bolts through the RWS-Part and into the center of the studs.

(Note: You may need to use your 1/4-inch drill bit to drill through the RWS-Part. This is expected and will not affect the strength of the system.) 

If you are installing a 4'x4' Corner Quickstart Kit, your next step will be to mount a Left-End Assembly (discussed below in Finishing the Installation of the Base Unit). In most cases (those installing 8-feet and greater), the next step will be to mount a Tee Assembly.

Continuing the Installation of the Base Unit

Tee Assemblies are used to continue the Rhino Shelf along a wall in Universal Kits that are 8-feet and longer. Installing a Tee Assembly is simple. Begin with the Tee Wall Bracket.
Using the level line that you drew earlier, place the Tee Wall Bracket against the wall such that the top of the Tee Wall Bracket is aligned with the level line. Install the Tee Wall Bracket as shown in the center of the stud that is closest to 48 inches away from the RWS-Part that you installed earlier. Pilot holes are drilled with a 3/16-inch bit that is 3 and 1/2 inches in length. Lag bolts are driven into the wall with a 7/16 drive socket.
(Note: The holes in your Tee Wall Bracket may appear different than the holes in the video below. This is no problem and the installation will look identical once completed.)

Place the pre-assembled Tee Assembly onto the Tee Wall Bracket under the lower lag bolt. Notice that the Tee Assembly is temporarily held in place so that your hands are free. Using a 1/2-inch wrench and a 1/2-inch drive socket, attach the Tee Assembly to the Tee Wall Bracket with the included 5/16" bolts and nuts.

Using a 2-ft level placed vertically on the wall, from the center of the lag bolts in the Tee Wall Bracket, go up 24 inches and make a mark approximately 2 inches long. This line is the center of a stud and will provide guidance when installing the upper diagonal arm.
Place the 2' level on on the Tee assembly horizontally and maneuver the upper diagonal arm to make contact with the wall. The placement of the upper diagonal bracket should be determined by making sure that the Tee assembly is level. When level is achieved, attach the upper diagonal bracket to the wall using the same technique as before (drill a pilot hole, then drive the included lags.)

(Note: You may install T-Kits to continue the installation in 4-feet sections. The number of T-Kits that you received in your package is relative to the length that you ordered.)
When installed, the T-Kit will look like this:

Finishing the Installation of the Base Unit
Installing a Left-End Assembly is very similar to installing the Tee Assembly. Begin with the Left Wall Bracket.
(Note: The holes in your Left Wall Bracket may appear different than those in the video. This is no concern and will look identical once installation is complete.)

Place the pre-assembled Left-End Assembly onto the Left Wall Bracket under the lower bolt, as before. Using the included bolt and nut, attach the Left-End Assembly to the Left Wall Bracket and tighten with the 1/2-inch wrench and drive socket.

Maintain level with the Left-End Assembly and attach the upper diagonal arm, as before.

When installed, the Left-End Assembly will look like this:

Installing the Shelf Decking
The simple installation is nearly complete! It is time to attach the shelf decking. We recommend 2x4s because of their strength and availability at any home improvement store or lumber yard.
*Note:  The 2x4 that is used in the FRONT of the shelf should be attached first using 2 screws on either side. The remaining 4 boards require only 1 screw on either side. (Please see the video below for more visual aid.)
At the wall, measure the distance between the vertical portion of each assembly. Cut your 2x4s and begin installing the boards at the front of each section. Keep your front 2x4s as flush as possible with the front of the assembly. The Rhino Shelf has 5 boards per bay.

Connecting the Corner QuickTurn System

Place the Corner QuickTurn System on top of the front board of the Base Unit. Choose the bay that is closest to the wall. Be sure that the holes in the Quickturn Connector are closest to the wall.

Attach the Left-Wall-Start Part to the QuickTurn Connector using 2 of the included lag bolts.

From this point, installing the Return Unit of the Corner Quickstart Kit is very similar to the installation of the Base Unit.

Find the stud that is closest to 48 inches from the QuickTurn Connector along the right wall. If you are installing the 4'x4' Corner Quickstart Kit, you will install a Right-End Assembly (see Finishing the Installation of the Return Unit below). For 8'x8' and 12'x12' installations, you will install a Tee Assembly exactly as before.

Continuing the Installation of the Return Unit

Install a Tee Assembly on the stud that is closest to 48 inches from the Corner QuickTurn Connector.

First, install the Tee Wall Bracket. As before, the holes in your part may appear slightly different than the video. However, the function is exactly the same.

Then, attach the pre-assembled Tee Assembly to the Tee Wall Bracket using 2 of the included bolts and nuts, exactly as before.

Using a 2-ft level placed vertically on the wall, from the center of the lag bolts in the Tee Wall Bracket, go up 24 inches and make a mark approximately 2 inches long. This line is the center of a stud and will provide guidance when installing the upper diagonal arm.
Place the 2' level on on the Tee assembly horizontally and maneuver the upper diagonal arm to make contact with the wall. The placement of the upper diagonal bracket should be determined by making sure that the Tee assembly is level. When level is achieved, attach the upper diagonal bracket to the wall using the same technique as before (drill a pilot hole, then drive the included lags.)

Place the 2' level on on the T-Kit horizontally and maneuver the upper diagonal arm to make contact with the wall. The placement of the upper diagonal bracket should be determined by making sure that the T-Kit is level.

Maintain level with the Tee assembly and attach the upper diagonal to the wall, exactly as before. 

Finishing the Installation of the Return Unit

Installing a Right-End Assembly is very similar to installing the Left-End Assembly and Tee Assemblies that you have installed before. Begin with the Right Wall Bracket. As before, the holes in your Right Wall Bracket may appear slightly different than yours. However, the function is the same.

Attach the pre-assembled Right-End Assembly to the Right Wall Bracket with a single bolt and nut.

Maintain level and attach the upper diagonal arm, as before.

The installation of the Return Unit is nearly complete. Add shelf decking in exactly the same way as before.

*Note: The 2x4 that is used in the FRONT of the shelf should be attached first using 2 screws on either side. The remaining 4 boards require only 1 screw on either side. (Please see the video below for more visual aid.)

 At the wall, measure the distance between the vertical portion of each assembly. Cut your 2x4s and begin installing the boards at the front of each section. Keep your front 2x4s as flush as possible with the front of the assembly. The Rhino Shelf has 5 boards per bay.

Congratulations! The installation of your Universal Corner Quickstart Kit is now complete!
