Plenty of schools and businesses will hang glass cabinets somewhere within the building, usually to display artwork, awards or other relevant information for visitors to the establishment. But hanging one of these cabinets is no easy task – you need to ensure that it will remain stuck to the wall.
Open up the doors of your glass cabinet and make 2 marks (one above the other, about 12 inches apart) that will show you where to position the cabinet over the stud. Draw matching marks about 12 inches across from these first 2, then pre-drill these 4 holes (using a drill bit that is slightly smaller than the screws you plan to use).
Get a second person to help you hold the glass cabinet up to the wall, following the line you drew earlier, and make sure that one of the 2 sets of pre-drilled holes sits over the stud you scoped out earlier. Drill 2 holes into the wall over the stud, ensuring that you go about 2 and a half inches deep. For the other holes, pre-drill another 2 holes into the wall.
Bring the glass cabinet back into position and screw in the plastic drywall screws (in the holes that are not over the stud). Then, use a drill to insert the wood screws through the back of the cabinet and into the stud holes behind. Use the spirit level to check that the cabinet is level before tightening all 4 screws.
