Hanging Up Speakers Without Drilling Holes


Hanging speakers can improve the surround-sound home theater experience while economizing household space. For this reason, many speakers have built-in hangers or pre-drilled keyholes designed to suspend them from a wall mount. Unfortunately, some landlords frown upon drilling holes into the wall. You can use large, heavy-duty picture hooks to hang speakers without creating holes. To avoid property damage, choose picture hooks designed to support the weight of your speakers.

Things You'll Need

  • Rubbing alcohol
  • Clean rag
  • Adhesive picture hook
  • Choose a smooth surface on which to hang the speakers. Picture hooks will not properly adhere to rough surfaces such as brick, fabric or textured paint.

  • Wash the area thoroughly with rubbing alcohol, using a clean rag. The rubbing alcohol will remove grease and dirt that could interfere with adhesion. Allow the area to dry thoroughly before proceeding.

  • Remove the adhesive backing from one of the picture hooks. Press it on the clean area of the wall firmly but carefully.

  • Hang the speaker from the hook.

  • Repeat the entire process for each speaker you need to hang.
