Snowboards can be cumbersome and space-consuming, especially in tiny spaces. Consequently, it is important that they are stored somewhere out of the way. Fortunately, snowboards can be mounted on walls. Not only does this save space, it can also decorate a wall or brighten a room. Knowing how to properly hang a snowboard can save you time, money for storage and hassle.
Things You'll Need
- Tape measure
- Carpenter pen
- Beam level
- Two self tapping screws measuring 2 inches
- Two rubber grommets
- Two drywall screws
Use the tape measure to measure the widest width of the snowboard. Note the length of this measurement.
Make two points on the wall based on the widest width measurement using the tape measure and carpenter pen. These markings represent the starting and end points of the width measurement and the distance between the two points should equal the length of the widest width measurement.
Draw a straight line connecting the two points on the wall using the carpenter pen. Place the beam level on the line to ensure that the points are exactly across from each other and even. If the points are not even, the snowboard will be crooked when it is hung.
Drive the drywall anchors into each point on the wall using the drill. Push the tapping screws through the rubber grommets then screw them into each drywall anchor.
Place the center of the snowboard between the two anchors and slowly lower it until the widest point of the snowboard causes it to wedge securely between the anchors.
