Assembling Your Intermetro Shelving

Step 1:

Each InterMetro shelf comes with four connector sleeves. These connectors are used to affix the shelf to the upright poles.

  • Locate the spot on the pole where you want your bottom shelf to be.

  • Making sure that the smaller end of the sleeve is pointing toward the top of the post, snap a 2-piece connector sleeve around the post at your chosen height.

  • The ridge inside the connector clicks into the groove on the post.

  • Repeat this process, attaching a connector to all four posts.

Step 2:

  • Stand a shelf on its side as shown.

  • Working from the bottom side of the shelf, slide a post through the post holes.

  • Ensure that the plastic connector sleeve is securely seated in the post hole.

  • Repeat this step for all four posts.

Note that the wire mesh side of the shelf is the top. You should insert the poles through the bottom.

Step 3:

  • After you have installed the poles into the bottom shelf, set the unit upright.

  • Press down on the shelf evenly and firmly, so that the shelf holes are seated securely around the connector sleeves.

  • Use a ruler, or count the grooves on the poles to choose the positions of additional shelves.

Step 4:

  • Repeat Step 1 to attach the sleeves for the next shelf, and slide the shelf over the tops of the posts onto the sleeves.

  • Seat this next shelf firmly as in Step 3.

  • Repeat installation proceedure for your remaining shelves, working from bottom to top.

Step 5:

  • Once you have securely placed all of your shelves, level the structure.

  • Turn the adjustable feet to ensure that your InterMetro Shelving Unit is safe and level.

  • If you are using the shelving unit against a wall, position the front feet slightly higher than the feet of the side that will rest against the wall. This will help prevent tipping.
