Put together as in "assemble"? Just follow the instructions - they're actually fairly easy to put together.

Re: how do u put besta storage units together?

In this case, see how to attach two or more units to each other (using the included hardware) on pages 13 and 16 of the instructions mentioned above.

(I suppose this thread should be moved to the proper forum by the moderators)

Re: how do u put besta storage units together?

See page 16 (last page). Use the supplied long screws (part # 114667) to attach them together through the holes on the sides. Make sure to use holes that are not used by hinges or shelf pegs.

Re: how do u put besta storage units together?

Hi sherri b, I'm pondering the same issue for a freestanding room divider. Check picture 1 below (figure 10). My guess is that that little screw (114925) is used for attaching side to side thru that piece of hardware. The hardware (picture 2) is on page 5 and is marked with the Roman numerals I & II. My question is does that hardware mount on the inside? Can't tell from the drawing...

I'm thinking Besta mainly because it has a nicely finished back and I'd hate to clutter it with hardware.

Good luck. I'm anxious to know what you find out.

Re: how do u put besta storage units together?

The pictures above show how to install the supplied hardware that is used to attach the frame to the wall through the back, when the optional hanging rail is NOT used. Those are not the steps that show how to attach two units to each other.

Once again, the simple procedure for attaching the units to each other side by side is clearly explained on page 16 of the instructions.
