Installing your Hicat® will be easier if you have an extra pair of hands & you'll need a step ladder, medium size cross headed screwdriver, tape measure, pencil & a drill - if you have a stud/joist sensor this will also be useful & if fixing into masonry you may need a specialist drill bit

2  Install the Wall Fixing Kit to the wall towards the top of the Hicat® making sure you've avoided obstructions & that when installed the internal shelves & features of the unit don't interfere with the Wall Fixing Kit

NB also remember that if you are fitting a Hicatch toy that you will need to factor this in to the positioning of the Wall Fixing Kit
