Q: What is the difference between the
“W” and “N”?
A: Wide (W) means “wide body”
instrument; or acoustic. Narrow (N) means “narrow body”
instrument; or electric. This is pertaining to the depth of the body
of the instrument. A “wide” fixture will allow more space from
the wall, & will work for both acoustics & electrics. A
“narrow” fixture will only work for electrics or narrow-body
Q: What is the “yoke”?
A: The yoke is the “Y” shaped part
which holds the instrument. This part may be adjusted to fit the
headstock of your instrument; simply squeeze the arms together, or
pull them apart. We also have different yokes to accommodate
different instruments. Example: Guitar, Banjo, Violin,
Ukulele/Mandolin, Dulcimer, and a special yoke for a 6-7 String Bass.
Q: How can you tell if you have left or
right facing hangers?
A: If you are facing the wall, and the
guitars are turned toward your left hand, they are left facing
hangers, and vice-versa.
Q: How can you tell if you currently
have 30? or 65? hangers?
A: Put a tape measure against the wall
plate and measure straight out from the wall to where the yoke screws
into the end of the arm. (Do not follow the bend in the arm when
measuring.) The 30? will measure 6.5” straight out, and the 65?
will measure 9.25”.
Q: Where are your products
A: Start to finish… in the great state
of Wisconsin, USA!
Q: Where do your products ship from?

Q: Can I get hangers like a music store
has to use on the wall in my home?
A: Yes, all of our hangers are
manufactured in 4 wall types; slatwall, flat wall, gridwall, and
pegboard. We also manufacture three convenient types of
slatwall rail systems, so you can have all the versatility of a store
right in your own home!
Q: Will your guitar hanger work for
most other types of instruments?
A: It will hang many other types of
instrument, but we make specific yokes/cradles for almost every type of
instrument, and we recommend using the yoke/cradle that is made for use
the type of instrument that you would like to display.
Q: Do your slatwall hangers secure to the slatwall system that I am using?
A: Yes! We have incorporated a new type of locking system that is easier to use. It's stock number is: "CLIP" if you wish to look it up in our quick search. This slatwall clip is sent along with EVERY slatwall hanger that is purchased.
Q: Should I hang an instrument with an asymmetric headstock in a String Swing hanger?
A: Yes! The yoke is designed to pivot so that no matter what type of heastock design your instruemnt has, the hanger will keep the instrument completely vertical. We recommend to turn the yoke all the way into the fixture and give is 1/2 turn back out, so it can freely pivot to adjust to the instrument's headstock style.
