Mounting Dartboard
When the Mrs said I needed to put my board inside where it's heated I said "no problem".
I have a blank wall and want to mount a board on it. The studs aren't near where the clamp needs to be. I just wondered if there was more to use than plastic anchors to secure the bracket? Would you use toggle screws? Or maybe something else?

Get a back board for it. It will help protect the wall a bit and allow you to mount the board to something secure. You can mount the back board securely to the studs and the dart board to the back board. Even if you use a piece of plywood it's better than trusting the wall to support the board.

I guess its not a solid wall then, I have never fitted a board to a wall that is not solid so not sure how to advise you, I'm sure someone else has though Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

Toggles are the first thing that comes to mind. But are you gonna put up a backer board of some sort to protect the wall? If you are, you could screw that into the studs and then mount the dart board on it.

I was going to just use a surround to protect the wall but the backboard sounds like the solution so I can use the studs. Now I need to get something that looks good other than plywood. Perfect advise. thanks

Just had an "ah-ha" moment. I'll cover a board with some material so it looks presentable and then won't need the surround.

I am adding pool table felt to my backboard for my portable dartboard stand. It will look nice and cost me nothing to get. I got mine from a local store and the guy just gave me a length of scrap for free, doesn't hurt to ask.

That's a good idea I'll do that.

there are plastic Anchors that look like Giant screws. Made specific for sheetrock. They work very well. other than that the backboard solution is the way to go.

Here is another Wiki article but I am not so convinced with the way he has put the screw in the wall and the bracket on the board, I think the vid below is the right way: https://www.wikihow.com/Hang-a-Dartboard




Not everyone will have a backboard as some will have cabinets and if you dont have a backboard you can fit the board straight onto the wall and then use a surround.

Well I guess I did it right. Now all I need is a dart board for the backboard

That video was so vague. No info on height of the board placement and how to center the bracket. Maybe one of the NutZ members could do a proper how to.

Yeah it left too many steps out really, but its a start I guess Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

I also found that video vague. I put my dartboard directly on the wall (with the official measurements) and now am looking for a decent surround.

yep it need a good detailed how to.
