Pantry Cabinet Assembly
Watch this video tutorial and follow the steps listed below to learn how to assemble your RTA Pantry cabinet also known as a Utility cabinet.
- Flat Head Screwdriver
- Open the box containing the cabinet and sort pieces based on size and shape.
- Empty the bag of hardware on a flat surface and sort. Be careful not to lose any pieces. There should be 30 cam-lock screws, 30 cam-lock nuts, and 20 shelf pins.
- Drill eight cam-lock screws into the pre-drilled holes along the sides of the panels that have a small rectangle missing from the corner (this will be the toe catch). These are the side panels.
- Slide the long edge of the large rectangular panel into the cam-lock screws on of one of the side panels. The large panel will be the back of the pantry.
- Screw the cam-lock nuts into the pre-drilled holes on the side connecting the panels.
- Slide the square panel into the right angle created by the two larger panels.
- Slide the short edge of the skinny rectangular panel into the cam-lock screws on the long edge of the cabinet sides.
- Place a cam-lock nut into the skinny rectangular panel and secure with a screwdriver.
- Slide square panels into the middle and the end of the side and back panel connected at a right angle.
- Screw cam-lock nuts into the pre-drilled holes on the edges connecting the square panels to the side panel.
- Slide the remaining side panel into the square panels and back panel.
- Screw cam-lock nuts into the sides of the back panel connected to the other side panel.
- Place a cam-lock nut on the side of the skinny rectangular panel connecting it to the other side panel and secure with a screwdriver.
- Screw cam-lock nuts into the square panels on the sides connecting them to the other side panel.
- Open the other box that came in the shipment containing the door to the pantry and lay it on a flat surface.
- Drill eight cam-lock screws into the pre-drilled holes along the inside frame of the door.
- Flip the assembled panels so the open face (the front of the pantry) is turned upward.
- Slide the cam-lock screws on the door into the pre-drilled holes on the edges of the particle boards.
- Place and secure eight cam-lock nuts into the cam-lock screws along the edges of the side panels closest to the face frame.
- Insert shelf pins at the desired height, making sure that all 4 pins for one shelf are at the same height, and that the flat side of the pin is facing up.
