Hanging Board on Concrete
Hi Everyone,

I have recently moved home and have had to pack up my whole darts set up which was fantastic in my previous home and relocate it. 

In my new home I only have concrete walls to put the dartboard up against. The problem is I cannot drill holes into these walls.

Does anyone have any ideas or tips on how I could put my dartboard up on these walls?

Why can't you drill holes in the concrete - is it rented accomodation and the landlord won't allow it?

If there is absolutely no way you can drill into the concrete, then all I can think of is getting one of the Unicorn On Tour things and hang the board on one of your doors, or get yourself a freestanding board.

Get a big bit of wood and hang the board on that. Then lean the wood against the wall.

Yeah the landlord won't allow the drilling. As a majority of the concrete walls are structural.

+1 to JDorks suggestion.

I, too, live in a rented house with concrete walls.  While I could have hung the board on the wall, I didn't care for the idea of my darts striking concrete when I missed the board. 

I took a 4 foot by 8 foot sheet of 25mm blockboard and cut the length to match the distance from the floor to the where the wall and roof meet.  In my case, there is some trim along the wall, so I cut it to that point and leaned it against the wall at a slight angle. Then, I mounted the dartboard in the middle of the sheet of blockboard.  The mounting bracket allows the dartboard to remain straight up and down while the blockboard is slightly leaning.

One word of caution though.  I didn't secure the blockboard in any way since it is in a corner of my home office and therefore away from people who, especially little ones, could cause it to fall.  I haven't seen much of any movement when I remove the darts. However, I have noticed the board moves slightly when my son, who is just over 4 feet (124 cm),  tries to remove the darts while standing on the ground.  I have him stand on a stool to remove darts and the board ceases to move. So, just something to be aware of depending on who will have access to the board.

I'd reckon that two holes can't do any damage. I can understand that landlord simply doesn't want it. I would understand his point of view...or at least I would try to understand .-) . Having fear of a house breaking down because of these two small holes (possibly only one hole if you make some hanger) is imho ridiculous though

I'd just drill the wall, hide it when the landlord comes round, and fill it when you move out
But that's just me lol

Get yourself some of that industrial strength caulk adhesive, stick yourself a 3'X3' sheet of 3/4 inch plywood to the wall and mount the board on that!   Landlord didn't say "No glue"!
