Hey guys,

Solid concrete or block wall? For solid i would get a wedge-it type anchor, for hollow i would use a standard toggle bolt, just make sure it is a heavy duty type rated for the load of the cabinet and equipment stored inside.

The wall is concrete? Or is it cinder block with a smooth coat over them? You will need a hammer drill with concrete bit the size of the anchors you are going to use. Be easier if you just called me at 682-227-3095. I am a retired carpenter that spent his life building and installing commercial fixtures, so I have a few tips to help you out. Tom

Hanging cabinets

Getting back on the web site and ran across your post. Did you ever get the cabinets hung up in your garage? Didn't think about it when I answered your original post, but since I am retired now my answer when I get asked how to do things like that now is "Talk to the guys at Home Depot in the orange vest". Hope it was an easy job for you.

I would run furring strips with concrete bolts (Much easier) ,you need a hammer drill to install them....then just screw the cabinettes to the wood strips ,of coarse the screws cant be longer than the strips are wide

old thread, back from the dead, but the way to do this is to use a french cleat. Similar to DBM's response but also screw a strip to the back of the cabinets. Rip a 1 x 6 down the middle with a 45 degree tip to the saw. Put the "open" 45 on the wall and the other on the cabinet. The cabinet will hang on the 45. Put another cleat on the bottom to space it out the same.
Made a quick sketch.

The cleat is an excellent choice, but still need a very good anchor for the wall half of the cleat. If it's solid concrete, I prefer "flushells" or "Redheads" which are a hollow flush anchor that's threaded internally. Once they're inserted, and set with a tool, they have great holding power, and if the cabinets are ever removed the surface is clear of anything that protrudes. They also give flexibility of changing, should you want to go to something else later.

French cleats are excellent, but the 45* angle in your sketch is backwards!

I guess I hadn't had my morning Joe when I wrote this^. On second look I see it was I who's wrong. Gee, here it is January 3rd and I've already made a mistake

You are correct. The low point of the 45* should be against the wall on the strip attached to the wall, otherwise no grip.

double nails

I have built a lot of concrete structures and we went the cheap route. drill a 1/4 in hole thru the wood and into the concrete with a bosch bulldog drill and use a # 10 steel wire bent into a L shape, the long leg to the bottom of the hole and a 16d double head form nail with a washer, they drive hard into the concrete, deforming the wire and it takes a 3 ft crow bar to pull any out.
