When the image search in “GRUNDTAL”, an epitome of a stylish kitchen a lot will come out. But it requires durable widely wall for installation. In addition, there is a problem that not be accepted to hole in the wall at room for rent. So I tried to attach it with a tension rod without linking it to the wall.
The following is a list of the material. In the box product is Ikea’s. The hardware and stainless steel pipe of the others, I purchased a mail order or home center.

Set to bridge with three stainless steel pipe, between two vertical stainless tension rod. The part of the T-shape is connected by a T pipe connector. To secure by the hose clamp on the lower side, for try to not move.
Set to the GRUNDTAL wall shelf to the stainless steel pipe by the saddle bands.
Attach it by thrusts of tension rod, between the cupboard and the top plate of the kitchen.
It is a part of the mounting shelf . You’ll notice What supports the wall shelf with stainless steel pipe.
I have used about 5 months, The tension rod is stable. But like the following image, if T pipe connector can move in the direction of rotation, the horizontal stainless steel pipe will move and the wall shelf will lean to the front, so it should be cared.
Details of the joint portion of the T-shaped
The inner diameter of the T pipe connector is 25mm, Outer diameter of stainless steel pipe is 19mm, tension rod is 22mm, So I tried to adjust these gaps by the pipe (Bush) made of resin. Passed through a wire into the stainless steel pipe of the horizontal direction, and the hook to the tension rod for fixed in the horizontal direction. (For not fall out stainless steel pipe.)
First, secure it with the wire the one as in the picture on the left. Adjust the length of the wire to the length of stainless steel pipe. And passed through the wire in the stainless steel pipe. After make a Hoop, Insert the stainless steel pipe in T pipe connector, and passed through the stainless tension rod in this hoop in the T pipe connector, like a right picture.
