All of our products include stainless steel hardware unless noted otherwise. There are a few instances of hardware that we supply that are not available in stainless steel, but that is noted in the description of those products.
Standard shelves include stainless button head cap screws.
For products that are to be mounted on the wall, you can expect both drywall and stud fasteners. Our drywall anchors are zinc plated wall drillers that can support a whooping 83 lbs in 5/8" drywall with the included stainless fasteners. We tested a setup installed with only anchors by sitting on a shelf and it held great. This is not a test you should do as our shelves are rated for 125 lbs only. If you are installing into studs we include stainless lag screws for the horizontal support member and stainless deck screws for the vertical members.
Lets be honest, chances are good that if you are buying our product you have all of the tools you need right at hand. But here is a list anyway.
All of our shelves require a 3/32 hex key to install and nothing more. This does assume that you already have our Pro-Grid Wall Mount System. The Pro-Grid Wall Mount System does require a few more tools, but nothing specialized.
Installing the Pro-Grid Wall Mount System in drywall requires a #2 phillips head screwdriver, pen or pencil, and a level (ideally magnetic).
Stud installation for the Pro-Grid Wall Mount System is probably the most involved, but still very simple. Horizontal support members require a 1/8" drill bit for pilot holes, 7/16" socket, stud finder, and a level (again, ideally magnetic). Vertical support members require a T20 torx bit, stud finder, and a level (still ideally magnetic). That is all that you will need in most cases.
Our installation PDF is included on the last tab of each product page. The manual includes all product installations as there is a lot of overlap. If there is ever something that is not clear, please reach out. If you are struggling, there is likely someone else that has the same questions.
