Ingenious DIY technique for mounting a cupboard

How to hold a cupboard in place while marking the wall for drilling. Note the socks for protection. This is perhaps one of the best DIY (do-it-yourself) techniques you'll come across. It's perfect if there's no-one around to help.

Holding a cupboard while mounting

Adjust your step-ladder to get the approximate position, and then brace the feet in the right position to get it just right. You can use thin pieces of plastic as shims on top of the socks to get the level just right.
Use the same technique once you've drilled while you bed the screws home.

Remember to be safe while you work and ensure the ladder's feet can't slip!
