How to Mount a Magnetic Knife Holder
Mounting a magnetic knife holder is just as easy as buying it. If you have never installed one before, don’t worry. We have covered step-by-step instructions on how to install magnetic knife holders ust for you:
Pick a suitable spot
Find a suitable area in your kitchen to install a magnetic knife holder. Clean the area with a kitchen hand towel to remove dust and oil before installation. Make sure the spot is accessible for you but not for your children. You can consider the places mentioned earlier for hanging your knives.
Mark the spot
After carefully selecting the area, mark the area where you want to hang the magnetic holder with a pen or marker. If you’re going to hang the knives horizontally, draw a transverse line. But if you want to decorate the blades in the vertical position, make sure you have marked the spot vertically. The choice is yours.
Prepare for installation
There are 2 types of magnetic knife holders. One requires screws, and the other works on adhesive material behind the strip.
Adhesive magnetic knife holder
If your kitchen is well-furnished and you do not want to drill the walls, an adhesive magnetic knife holder will work for you.
Apply a dual-sided command strip to the back of the holder on both sides. Press it on the wall for 30 seconds or more.
Make sure the adhesive material is strong enough to hold any size of the knife securely.
The only disadvantage of adhesive-based magnetic knife holders is that they are hard to remove from the wall. If you want to place the holder on another wall, you will have to buy a new magnetic knife holder.
Screw-based magnetic knife holder
Screw-based magnetic knife holders are easy to install and are more potent than adhesive-based magnetic knife bars.
If your walls can not hold adhesive tape, you need to apply screws to the magnetic holder using a drill machine.
Ensure you have placed the screws in the proper position.
The advantage of a screw in a magnetic holder is that it keeps the holder tight, and there is no chance of a falling knife.
You can easily remove the screws if you are changing the spot of the magnetic holder.
It can hold stainless steel knives of various sizes.
Make sure the surface is drilling friendly.
Hang your knives
After an hour, organize your knives in such a way that blades are pointing upwards. You can arrange them according to size and length to make them more attractive and to get guests’ appreciation.
