The Clutter Column® is a "ready to assemble" design. The hardware parts are provided, and
a simple Phillips screw driver is required.
Of course the individual shelves which fit into slots are removable and moveable. The acrylic pockets are formed
by arranging acrylic panels to form multiple pockets within the channel part of the column. These parts are positioned
after assembling the column.
Your Clutter Column® will arrive in pieces packed for protection during shipping. Examine
the packing method before unpacking. The pieces have layered cushion paper to prevent abrasion between pieces.
The entire collection is held together within a 4 mil poly bag.
After unpacking the pieces examine the pieces for damage before discarding the packing materials
and your memory of the packing method. If there is any damage, contact usefulitems.com for replacement. If you
are satisfied, remove all packing material from reach of children. Any polyethylene bag is a hazard to small children
who play with anything.

The parts which require "assembly" joined together are the solid wood basepiece, column, and toppiece.
The basepiece is joined to the column by provided screws. After the column is standing on its basepiece, the toppiece
is attached to the column with "camlocks". Camlocks work by clamping down on a pair of pins which are
screwed into the underside of the toppiece.
Here is a closeup view that shows the toppiece with pins attached.
