Use this snowboard fixture to display your board in the vertical position, nearly flat against the wall, bindings out.
- Both screws mount into the same stud in the wall, no drywall anchors.
- No measuring how far apart to hang two points, the width is adjustable and the Stoppers pivot to fit your boards edge angle.
Adjust the width by inserting the Slide Arms into the base equally engaged in the Gear. Get it to the width you want then lock them down by inserting the Locking Plate between them and fastening it down with screws. The Locking Plate positively locks the arms into position.
Is this overengineered? Maybe, but that's why I love it. And admit it - you and I both love printing simple things with gears.
Use stainless steel fasteners if you want to avoid moisture & corrosion, but I like the look of the Black Oxide steel fasteners because the heads blend in with the black print color.
HEX NUT POCKETS:
You have to press the nuts into the hex shaped pockets on the printed parts. If the hex nuts you use are 1/8" thick, and the width across flats is .337-.346, it will work just fine.
ATTACH TO THE WALL:
- Press in all five hex nuts. It's a force fit by design.
- Screw the Slide Base into a stud in the wall, mount the top first before drilling the bottom.
- Place the Gear on the hub (it may be a bit snug, it will loosen up with use)
- Attach the Stoppers onto the Slide Arms per the photos, use the 1" long screws and snug them down and give them one more half turn. Don't crush it, the screw should be just flush at the bottom.
- Push the Slide Arms into the base, it may take a bit of finesse to engage both arms equally across the Gear.
- Adjust it to the width you want (about 9 to 12 inches) and lock it down by placing the Locking Plate in between the arms and snug it down with screws, just flush.
The heads of the button head screws sit below the surface so they will not contact your beautiful board graphic ... unless you're a dink and you fail to fully seat the screws or you use the wrong screws. Don't be a dink, do it right.
Mount your snowboard and post a photo so I can revel in the beauty of it too.
