Mounting a board that's still in plastic
« on: July 07, 2018, 09:47:52 AM »
So I got this particular board for the wall, turns out it's a limited edition and I have a nice low number so I want to keep it in the plastic because one day some dickhead who doesn't skate WILL pay me a lot for it. Anyone done this before? If so, how?

When you mount a board that wrapped in plastic it doesn't feel quite as good as it would without it, but it's safer for all involved parties.

You can use brackets from home depot or whatever hardware store and make a mounting contraption. Also depends if it's horizontal or vertical I guess,but like El Chino said towel racks would work.

use a needle to make tiny holes in the plastic wrap, and hang it with fishing line or a shoe lace. worked for me.

yeah, how big a deal is not puncturing through the bolt holes, just use a nail to poke enough room for a string or something and hang it on a hook?

Keep it out of a sunny part in the house and away from heat. The light could discolor the inks and the heat would cause the plastic to stick to the graphic, so itíll pull the ink from the board when removed later or leave residue.

You've done this before. Where were you ten years ago when I tried this?
