I added this coat/junk rack just inside the main door on my KF30SB. I originally had fullsize coat hooks but because of the location it made the area too narrow going up the steps into the bedroom so I just used smaller hooks and use it for a general junk rack (dog leashes,umbrella, keys, hats, etc)

How did you locate the studs to hold the screws?

Triker - to locate the studs for the screws, locate any paper seam cover. It is a strip of colored paper that runs floor to ceiling that matches the wall paneling. They match very well so you may have to look carefully. The tape covers a seam where two panels are joined and they are always joined on a metal stud. Because you have a high end Crossroads product you have aluminum studs every 16". Unfortunately in the exact location on my Kingston I didn't have enough room to reach another stud because my coat/junk rack is less than 32". Therefore I put two screws (about 4" apart top to bottom)into the one stud that was available On each end of the coat rack I used another 2 screws but these were installed with standard drywall expansion screws (the type that expand as you screw them tight). The one aluminum stud was reasonably close to the center of the rack. The two sets of screws on the ends have to be close to the end of the rack to pull the wallboard tight against the rack.

Back to the original question, locate the seam and then measure 16" either way to find a stud. Hope that helps

Ken
