How to install your VerticalBoard on drywall: the complete guide

Hello climber! Have you just received your VerticalBoard and can't wait to attach it? Do you only have drywall for walls in your home? No worries ! Today, we guide you step by step for a concrete installation. 🧗‍♀️

Necessary material :

  • Your VerticalBoard (obviously!)
  • Screws provided
  • A door frame
  • 2 sheets of plywood or OSB (min. 18mm thick, 80x30cm)
  • 4 threaded bolts (15cm long, 12mm diameter)
  • 4 washers
  • A drill and a screwdriver
  • A wrench or tool for tightening bolts
  • A clamp
  • A friend to help you (optional, but highly recommended)



  1. Hole Marking :
    • Take your plywood sheet and mark the points where you are going to drill. The recommended spacing is 70cm in length and 20cm in width.
  2. Temporary Fixing of Plywood :
    • Place this first plate against the drywall and use a clamp to hold it in place. This ensures that the plate is properly aligned.

Drill and Screw

  1. Drill the First Holes :

    • Using a drill equipped with a wooden bit, drill 4 holes in the already attached plywood. A single hole must go completely through the drywall.
  2. Insert the First Bolt :

    • Put a threaded bolt in the through hole. This will serve as a reference point for aligning the second plate.
  3. Align the Second Plate :

    • Hang the second plywood plate and align it with this first bolt. This ensures that the holes on both plates will line up perfectly.
  4. Drill the Remaining Holes :

    • While holding the second plate in place, drill the other 3 holes.


  1. Remove and Replace the Bolts :

    • Remove the initial bolt, then insert all the bolts into the prepared holes. This is where the help of a friend can really come in handy!
  2. Tightening the Bolts :

    • Add a washer to each bolt, then tighten securely using the wrench or tool you have.
  3. Screw the VerticalBoard :

    • You now have two options:
      • Option 1 : Screw the VerticalBoard directly into the plates.
      • Option 2 : Pre-screw the VerticalBoard onto one of the plates, then cut off the excess screws.

The Final Test

  1. Test the Solidity :
    • Before you climb like Spiderman, give the beam a little tug to make sure everything is properly attached and secure.

And there you have it, now you are ready to climb with confidence! 🧗‍♂️💪

We hope that these additional details will be useful to you. See you soon for new vertical adventures!
