Attach the 2 chains from their center to your ceiling. We have a beam we can encircle. You may have to find a joist to screw into. Make sure you use something strong and secure (lag screw or hook)

Make several of these hooks. You'll need 4 to attach the holder to the chain, and then some for the pots and pans. The thinner hook (at top of photo) is the part that will attach to the steel bar

Attach the holder to the chain with 4 hooks (2 for each chain). The thinner hook goes under the bar of the holder. Put the wide hook through the chain and, with pliers, fold it back on itself
