I was at the local Guitar Center today and noticed that they are charging 15.00 bucks for a wall mount to hang your guitar by... I figured it would take about 20 minutes and a few bucks but it would save me some cash, which i dont have right now.

Step 1: Gather parts

The first step is to gather parts... The parts i used were:

Hollow Wall Anchors #6-32 X 2-3/8"
SUPER Tool hanger
Scrap Closet rod with a flat side.
<p>Be very careful about hardware store tool hangers. The rubber or plastic coating can melt your nitrocellulose finish on instruments at contact point, especially Gibson. A guy I know used the same thing and ruind the finish on all his guitars.</p>
hey does it matter about the holding load of the hook
Yes. If you're hanging a Les Paul take extra care with the strength of the bracket. Les Pauls are very heavy.
$15 USD ? That's steep. I paid $20 AUSD a couple of years ago but I need another. I've got a Two back to back axe stand but it takes up too much space now that I've moved into my own bedsitter space is a luxury. I have a couple of bases from an old stand i.e. the actual padded guitar support I guess I could use one after a bit of twisting and tweaking and following the ideas on this site. The other problem is the solid concrete walls a jack hammer wouldn't make an impression on them.I have built in cupboards with wooden doors, that's where the Les Paul is hanging so I guess the ASAT will have to go on the other door. Luckily they're for storage and aren't opened very often.
Here's mine. ONLY COST $15! Custom latch system. Also built in a recessed pick for each guitar. Full step-by-step instructions on my blog. Only need a 1X4 and a 1X6 board. Enjoy.<br><br>http://diyandsimplify.blogspot.com/2012/02/4-guitar-wall-hanger-cost-15ish.html<br><br>Feel free to click a link on my blog if you feel like supporting the cause. <br><br>Either way, enjoy the project. Let me know if you have any comments or suggestions - always receptive to any kind of feedback. STICK IT TO THE MAN!
Great Instructable! Unfortunately, neither Home Depot or Lowe's had the right too hanger size, so I had to use a little different one. It was too big for my acoustic, so I put my Squier strat on it. Because of the headstock, I had to angle the hook, but it still turned out great. Here's some pics: <br>
thats a good looking squier, here are my 2 squiers

Mitt Romney presented himself at Wednesday night's debate as &quot;a man of <a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/" title="Coach Outlet"><strong>Coach Outlet</strong></a> steadiness and constancy.&quot;But one response the former Massachusetts governor gave, on a crucial issue <a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/" title="Coach Outlet Store"><strong>Coach Outlet Store</strong></a> of economic policy, might not help bolster that image.Asked at the outset of the <a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/" title="Coach Outlet Factory"><strong>Coach Outlet Factory</strong></a> debate whether he would allow Italy to fail (meaning he would allow its government to <a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/" title="Coach Factory"><strong>Coach Factory</strong></a> default on its debt) and whether the United States has a stake in the ongoing eurozone crisis, Romney <a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/" title="Coach Outlet Online"><strong>Coach Outlet Online</strong></a> said he would take a hands-off approach. &quot;Europe is able to take care of their own <a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/" title="Coach Outlet Stores"><strong>Coach Outlet Stores</strong></a> problems,&quot; he said.Romney added that he opposed bailing out banks on either side of the <a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/" title="Coach"><strong>Coach</strong></a> Atlantic. &quot;There will be some who say here that banks in the U.S. that have Italian debt, that we ought to help <a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/" title="Coach Factory Outlet Online"><strong>Coach Factory Outlet Online</strong></a> those, as well,&quot; he said. <br><br><a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/" title="Cheap Coach"><strong>Cheap Coach</strong></a><br><a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/" title="Discount Coach"><strong>Discount Coach</strong></a><br><a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/coach-classic-bags-c-2.html" title="Coach Bags"><strong>Coach Bags</strong></a><br><a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/coach-crossbody-c-3.html" title="Coach Crossbody"><strong>Coach Crossbody</strong></a><br><a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/coach-kristin-bags-c-5.html" title="Coach Kristin Bags"><strong>Coach Kristin Bags</strong></a><br><a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/coach-madison-bags-c-6.html" title="Coach Madison Bags"><strong>Coach Madison Bags</strong></a><br><a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/coach-op-art-bags-c-7.html" title="Coach OP Art Bags"><strong>Coach OP Art Bags</strong></a><br><a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/coach-poppy-bags-c-8.html" title="Coach Poppy Bags"><strong>Coach Poppy Bags</strong></a><br><a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/coach-purses-outlet-c-9.html" title="Coach Purses Outlet"><strong>Coach Purses Outlet</strong></a><br><a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/coach-satchels-sale-c-10.html" title="Coach Satchels Sale"><strong>Coach Satchels Sale</strong></a><br><a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/coach-tote-handbags-c-11.html" title="Coach Tote Handbags"><strong>Coach Tote Handbags</strong></a><br><a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/" title="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/"><strong>http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/</strong></a><br><br><br>&quot;My view is no, no, no. We <a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/" title="Coach Factory Online"><strong>Coach Factory Online</strong></a> do not need to step in to bail out banks either in Europe or banks here in the U.S. that may have Italian debt.&quot;Sounds clear enough. But asked a related, though different, question at a debate last month -- what he'd do if a Eurozone crisis put the global financial system on the brink of <a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/" title="Coach Factory Outlet"><strong>Coach Factory Outlet</strong></a> collapse -- Romney, in contrast with his rivals, sounded much more open to getting involved.&quot;Clearly, if you <a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/" title="Coach Handbags"><strong>Coach Handbags</strong></a> think the entire financial system is going to collapse, you take action to keep that from happening,&quot; he <a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/" title="Coach Purse"><strong>Coach Purse</strong></a> said. &quot;In the case of Europe right now, they are looking at what's happening with Greece. Are they going to <a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/" title="Coach Online"><strong>Coach Online</strong></a> default on their debt, are they not? That's a decision which I would like to have input on if I were president of the United States and try and prevent the kind of contagion that would affect the U.S. banking system and put us at risk.&quot; He added: &quot;I'm not interested in bailing out individual institutions that have wealthy people that want to make sure that their shares are worth something. I am interested in making sure that we preserve our financial system, our currency, the banks across the entire country.&quot; How it would be possible to preserve &quot;banks across the entire country&quot; without aiding individual banks was left unsaid.Given public opposition to bailouts, it's perhaps not surprising that Romney might want to move away from his apparent earlier openness to taking action.
Fantastic idea! I'll just get a longer closet rod - my hubby had 9 guitars - and 9 Super tool hangers and the hollow wall thingies to hold it up. PRESTO. The guitars won't be laying on our guest bed, and leaning against the walls.

I like it! My only problem I can't find these super tool hangers in England, all the ones I've found are way too small! Anyone know where to get the in the UK?
It made me nervous the way my son would lean his Gibsons against the wall and I hated the idea of buying a floor stand where it still stood a chance of getting knocked over. We used your wall hanger idea and we already had the materials on hand. My son even liked it! What a clever instructable; thank you!
What size are you guys using? I got 13-25s which worked great for a Squier and an Ibanez short scale bass, but now I have an Ibanez artist guitar which is too wide for the hooks. I unfortunately ruined the finish in my haste of trying to shove it into the snug hook.
Very nice tip, I'm hanging a Squier Showmaster from this thing. I made one adjustment though, I sawed the wood rod in half vertically. I just prefer the mount be flat against the wall (doesn't move left to right).
Made mine for under $3.Turned out great. Thank You!
Forgot the pics<br />
WOW. I wish i had one
thats sik i did the same expt on the ground to cool dude
As summer comes, I think that you may do not want to wear <a href="http://www.ugglinks.com/" rel="nofollow"><b>UGG Boots</b></a>. It is said that if you want to put your ugg boots up, you had better place a support plate into the <b><a href="http://www.ugglinks.com/ugg-bailey-button-c-66.html" rel="nofollow">UGG Classic Boots</a></b>, if not, you may also use newspaper. The general newspaper is the best choice. When you use it, you can feel that it can help you avoid moisture and odor. You don&rsquo;t need to fill up, you just need to hold up slightly and to leave gaps. From <a href="http://www.ugglinks.com/" rel="nofollow"><b>UGG Boots Outlet</b></a>.
&nbsp;Good idea, but i just used the hook by itself and screwed it into a stud in the wall. &nbsp;one stop.
if you can be bothered waiting 2 or 3 weeks, you can usually get dirt cheap guitar wall hooks on ebay. i got 5 for AU$3 including postage from china, then mounted them to a nice bit of pine. total cost $20.<br />
&nbsp;Why don't you check out www.wiamusic.com they have a great guitar wall hanger it's totally secure and looks great, I wouldn't use anything else it can even hang on the ceiling ! And nothing touches the guitars finish either ! &nbsp;I have 5 guitars hung with them, its all angle hanging system means that you can be really creative with your display.&nbsp;
Scottel17,<br /> Read your comment about wiamusic.com. I met those guys at NAMM this year. They won best in show for their guitar hangers. I am marketing them in my shop Off the Wall Music in So. Oregon and Distributing throughout the US through Farley's Musical Essentials. Love 'em. How did&nbsp; you find the hangers? Tell me what you can about wiamusic.com.<br /> Thanks<br /> Dan<br />
This was AMAZING!!!! I built mine for 1.71 and it looks great! If you are looking for the hooks, go to Harbor Frieght and get them. I didnt see them at homedepot or Lowes.<br /> <a href="http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=30559732&amp;id=1047500677" id="myphotolink" rel="nofollow"><img alt="" height="604" id="myphoto" src="http://photos-d.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc3/hs023.snc3/11067_1205919701954_1047500677_30559732_4545611_n.jpg" width="453" /></a>
I just wanted to say thanks to the OP and especially Crowbait. For inspiring me with his idea of the multi guitar hanger on a board.&nbsp; I went and picked up a really nice piece of Walnut and hand planed it to get a nice finish. One coat of tru-oil for the finish applied with a very old worn out t shirt to avoid lint.&nbsp; I picked up my super hooks from Harbor Freight for about a $1.50 a piece.&nbsp; I bolted it to the wall with 8 - 1/4&quot; x 2&quot; lag bolts.&nbsp; But I used a forstner bit to make a recess so the bolt heads would be recessed to facilitate later plugging of the holes with the correct size walnut dowels for a&nbsp; seamless look.&nbsp; <br />
15 bucks. wow
You saved me $20 on two hangers. Thanks. Very solid design. Now my cats can't play when I am not around...
Interesting.....Have several instruments around. Shall have to give this a try, having tripped over a guitar stand in the past.
lol did last night
Boy, you're a genius, you're gonna save me a whole lot of money
Thaaannnkkk you! Great Idea!! I was actually looking for this on Ebay, they didnt have a pic of what it would look like on a wall with the guitar and found this!! I am a gal and think I could do this myself to hang hubby's guitar as a suprise!! He just happens to be away !! After reading some of the comments, I think I will screw it to a stud as its an electric guitar and maybe wrap the rod with fabric or leather (to protect the guitar from rubbing) but I am going to give it a whirl.
Great instuctable. This will be great for hanging my Jackson Rhodes, Fender Stratocaster, Gibson V, and Johnson strat-bass. With so many guitars that don't work on stands, i need this.
Hey, thanks for posting this. I had an idea, but didn't know what hook to use. This super tool hanger is great. Thanks!
Watch the finish on your neck where it contacts the hanger: some finishes don't react well to particular plastic and foam. Some guitar stands do diabolical things to some finishes.
Hmm. Nice idea.
OK, I finished my Wall o' Guitars last night and it came out great. Sawed the wood pieces and painted them on Sunday (my girlfriend wanted them to be the same color as the walls). Received the hooks from UPS and went to work with the drill. In about half an hour, the two guitars and bass were on the wall looking pretty! Thank you to mr2monster for this instructable. WIth the money I saved, I bought myself a toolkit and a Leatherman-type tool.
I am in the process of doing something like this in my apartment. This may be a small detail but... I would consider adding a small square of some kind of foam material stuck to the wall behind the main body of the guitar. As perfect as we are, sometimes we get in a hurry with things. I have some chips in my ivory board binding along the bottom edge of my acoustic guitar to prove it.
here's an example of a heavy-duty hook. it can hold up to 50lbs, which should cover even a lot of Les Pauls.<br/><br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.ronshomeandhardware.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=770735&amp;Click=1014">http://www.ronshomeandhardware.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=770735&amp;Click=1014</a><br/><br/>same hook at higher price:<br/><br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.organizedliving.com/product/garage/hooks/heavy+duty/super+hook+tool+hanger.do">http://www.organizedliving.com/product/garage/hooks/heavy+duty/super+hook+tool+hanger.do</a><br/>
psyched to try this myself....i'm heading to Home Depot tomorrow. will let y'all know how it goes.
Superb man, nice article, thanks for posting this, this information is very helpful and I can't wait to do this.
would screwing the black double hook directly into the wall be too unstable to hold an acoustic guitar? i dont care how it looks. thanks
It would probably work as long as you put it into a wall stud... assuming you have wood wall studs and not metal.
It would also depend on the depth of the guitar body. Make sure that once the hook is screwed in, you'll still have enough room for the guitar to hang away from the wall. This will protect it from scratches and and temp or humidity changes in the wall.
Thanks bro, i have been wanting to hang my guitars up for a long time, and this will be very helpful
hey, i went and bought all the supplies this weekend, the hook was just over $2.oo and i got the exact wood pieces you did, two of them for $2.oo total. i found the wood rod at Lowe's, but it was labeled as Stairwell Railing, instead of closet rod. i'm really excited about this. thanks again -nick
you, my friend, are the man. my wife and i just moved into an apartment and we have two small children, the oldest being almost two. she LOVES to play with my guitars, which i allow as long as i am holding it, because i don't want to squelch her interest in the instrument. unfortunately though, she has learned how to unlatch the cases, so now, mu guitars aren't safe anywhere while i am away. i was just talking to mywife LAST NIGHT about hanging my guitars on the wall, so now, thanks to you, i can do that this weekend for much cheaper. thank you!!!!!!!
Thanks so much for the tip! I will definitly be using this in the future!
I did this but with one of them Bendy pipes from the pound shop and epoxied and Screwed it on to my Board then on the wall and wrapped it around the neck of my Ukulele
Very Nice and easy, but heres what I did, since I dont have money or the means of going anywhere to get supplies. I took two 4 inch wall screws and drilled them about 6 inches apart and set the guitar on them both and two 3 inch screws right next to the neck of the guitar and with a piece of string I held the guitar to the wall. Very good instructable.
