Instructions for Cart Assembly:

We recommend 2 people for cart assembly if possible.

  1. Insert the 4 wheels (or casters) into the H-shaped base, fastening them into place with a wrench.
  2. Using 4 long screws and washers, connect the pole to the H-shaped base. Use the included Allen wrench for tightening.
  3. Fasten the smaller bracket onto the bottom shelf using short screws. This is referred to as a printer tray in the manual.
  4. Place the bottom shelf onto the top of the pole and then slide it down to its proper height, tightening the screws.
  5. Fasten the larger bracket onto the keyboard tray using short screws. This piece is fastened in the same way as the bottom shelf in step #3. Tighten the screws at its proper height.
  6. Attach the basket to the back of the cart following the same steps as the trays in steps #3 and #5.
  7. Place the cover on the top of the pole.
