Locate & Mark Stud

Use a stud finder to locate placement of studs in the wall. Mark with pencil.

Secure Upward-Facing Half of Cleat to Wall

Referring to marks on the wall, hold the upward-facing half of the cleat in position, then use a drill to secure into place with 4-inch drywall screws through the cleat and into the stud.

Secure and Unfurl Rug

Once the upward-facing half of the cleat is securely fastened to the wall, use a ladder to place the downward-facing half of the cleat securely behind it (Image 1). Next, unfurl the rug slowly (Image 2), then check clasping fascia to ensure the tack strip is holding the rug in place snugly (Image 3).
