Step 12: Attach the Leg Supports

Flip the door over and position the legs for mounting according to the manufacturer's instructions. Lay four strapping boards across the underside of the door, lining them up beneath the legs' mounting plates. Attach the strapping to the door with two evenly spaced 1 5/8-inch screws driven in ½ inch from each end. This provides a solid layer on which to install the legs.
