how to Install A Surface Mount Medicine Cabinet
Before installing, read the entire installation instructions. Observe all local building and safety codes.
We recommend consulting a professional if you are unfamiliar with installing bathroom fixtures.
Tools and Materials:




Stud Finder
   Step 1  
  Center the cabinet above the sink at the appropriate height and draw a leveled outline of your cabinet on the wall.  
   Step 2  
  Locate and mark the position of the wall studs to which you will fasten your medicine cabinet. You can find studs by listening for a solid sound as you knock on the wall or by using a stud finder. If mounting holes are not pre-drilled, transfer these marks to the inside of the cabinet.

Tip: If the studs in your bathroom do not line up to the mounting location for your cabinet, wood blocking can be installed between the studs using standard 2 x 4’s. If wood blocking needs to be installed behind the finished wall, consult a professional if you are unfamiliar with this type of installation.
   Step 3  
  Remove the medicine cabinet door(s), set aside. Secure the cabinet to the wall studs with the mounting hardware (provided). Make sure that your cabinet is level before attaching securely to wall.  
   Step 4  
  When your medicine cabinet is securely in place, finish your installation by reattaching the cabinet door(s).
