Step 7: Mount it on the wall

Now that you have this killer Concrete Lightbulb Wall Hook, it's time to mount it into the wall. The steps here are fairly simple.

1) Find the stud. This wants a wood stud in the wall. There are multiple ways to find a wood stud, I'm using a cheapie stud finder.

2) Drill the hole. Using a 1/4" drill bit, drill a hole 1.5" deep into the wall.

3) Screw it in. The hole is big enough that you can can screw it in, but the bite is good enough that it can hold just about anything you want to hang off it. Heavy overcoats, small children, whatever strikes your fancy.

4) Hang your hat. Or you could use it as a hat hook. It's all good.
