Find the beams and mount the bases


With an inexpensive stud finder, you can find your ceiling beams quickly. This is where you’ll want to mount your galvanized floor flanges-they’re essentially your bases for the rod rack. Don’t try to mount them into straight drywall. They may seem sturdy but the screws will rip out when any weight is added to the rack. It’s imperative to find the beams to create a solid structure.
