Proper firearm safety techniques should be used at all times. ALWAYS be sure to keep your firearm pointed in a safe direction, and have the safety on until ready to shoot. Before hanging your firearm on the hanger, be sure that the chamber is clear and the safety is on. Always keep your firearms stored in a safe and locked location.
Be sure to wear all listed safety gear when listed. Exercise caution when using a grinder or polishing wheel and always make sure to follow the warnings and safety instructions on any equipment you may use.

Step 1: Cut Rod To Size
Place the rod securely in the vice.
Using a hacksaw, cut the rod to a length of 20 inches. After cutting, you may want to use a grinder or deburr wheel to remove any burrs or sharp edges on the rod.
Step 2: Mark Bending Points
From the other end of the rod, measure and mark 4 inches and 4 7/8 inches in from end. These bending points will form the part of the hanger that will grip the shelf.
