80" (2032mm) Cavity - Attach Ant-Tip Bracket

Attaching the anti-tip bracket for 80" (2032mm) cavity.

IMPORTANT!

Safety requires refrigerators be stable when doors and/or drawer, are open. The anti-tip bracket and fittings supplied must be fitted to the wall of the finished enclosure to withstand
a 220.5 pound (100 kg) load. This will prevent the possibility of the appliance tipping forward, when doors and/or drawer, are open. 

WARNING!

Failure to follow instructions can lead to serious injury or death.

When fastening with masonry plugs and/or screws:

  • Ensure the screws avoid electrical, gas and water conduits.
  • Ensure the surface the bracket is fastened to withstands a 220.5 pound (100 kg) load.
  • Ensure light-weight masonry material such as cinder block and new concrete (no curing time) are not used in installation.
  • Do not use metallic materials that may corrode, stain and/or damage the enclosure.

 

For 80” (2032 mm) cavity installation

Wooden/Plaster board wall installation

  1. Project the end of the above finished enclosure to the center of the back wall and subtract 2 7/16” (62 mm). This will locate the contact surface between the bracket and the appliance (refer to A).
    Ensure a structural beam/wall stud closest to the center of the wall enclosure is located.
  2. Fix bracket to the wall with screws x4 (#10 x 40 pan head Phillips screws).Ensure screws hold tight and the bracket overlaps the appliance when it is positioned (2  ” min. (60 mm)) for a secure hold.

Spacer installation


If a minimum 2  ” (60 mm) overlap cannot be achieved we recommend fastening a solid spacer (wooden beam etc) behind the bracket.

  1. Ensure the length of the spacer corresponds to the enclosure’s width. Always secure the spacer to existing studs on the enclosure wall (refer to C).
  2. Fix bracket to the spacer with screws x4 (#10 x 40 pan head Phillips screws). Ensure screws hold tight and the bracket overlaps the appliance when it is positioned (2  ” min. (60 mm)) for a secure hold.
