Note: Gather all mantel pieces together before assembling mantel.
WARNING: Use only 1/2" screws to attach metal angle brackets. Damage to mantel will result if other screws are used for this purpose.
IMPORTANT: More than one person is required to as­semble and lift mantel.
until told to do so. There should be some play in the pieces
to allow for proper alignment and best possible t. It is very
important that more than one person assemble mantel together. Panels must be held in proper alignment to each other while tightening screws to assure fewer gaps and proper surface
alignment. When tightening screws, do not over tighten. This
may cause threads to strip. For this reason, the supplied Al-
len wrench should be used rather than a power screwdriver. Panels have threaded inserts installed at screw locations.
Screws should start and turn easily in threaded holes when assembled according to instructions. Do not force screws into holes.
IMPORTANT: There is a serial number label inside of right side panel and on outside package. When calling to request
technical assistance or for replacement parts please have
that number ready.

right front leg over right side (#2) matching groove in leg
to tongue on side, as shown in Figure 1. Align threaded holes with brackets on side. Start four 1/2" screws through brackets. Align bottom of side and leg assembly so they

tighten leaving screws slightly loose.
5. Assemble left side/leg assembly to base (#1) following step #4.
1. Start two 1 1/4" screws with washers through header as­sembly block (#8) into threaded inserts on right side of mantel. Repeat for left side (see Figure 3).
