I've been thinking lately about hanging my guitars on the wall to get them off the floor, so I went to guitar center yesterday and bought 2 hangers, the lady said the one's I bought are the best they had, they are suppose to support 200 lbs., has anyone had a bad experience with hanging their guitars, like the hanger ripping out the wall or something like that? That's the only thing I am worried about....

Well as long as your drill the hanger in to a stud you should have no problems

So long as you don't drill them straight into the unsupported sections of a partition wall, you should be fine. The ones that I have on a partition wall have been attached to the wooden support beams inside the wall itself.

When one comes off the wall, christ, you'll know.

Mine fell off and smacked me in the head.

the one's I bought are called off the wall, they comes with anchors for the screws, the anchors have really big threads on it, it seems like they wouldn't rip out the wall. The directions never said anything about finding a support beam in the wall, I just hung them up, they seem very steerdy, just a little worried because my baby is hanging up on the wall

Does anyone know if hanging it on the wall would stretch the neck too much?

We can do it if we work together!

stretch the neck to much?
that concept is completely absurd. Hanging it on the has no drastic effect on your guitar and is in factt a space saver; your gutiar store does it, why shouldn't you.

You should make sure you are hanging it on a stud and you will get virtually no problems...
The only thing that can happen is the screws stripping...

the one which the anchors do not need a stud to hang. they will support the guitar just fine. probably up to 50 pounds, no problem. if you get one that requires a stud to mount, you can hang yourself from those.

i hang TV's as apart of my job, and with 4 lags, that 120 pound TV isnt going anywhere.

^alot of guitarists are 16.


I don't care what I'm hanging, I try to find a stud. Alot of stuff doesn't end up on a stud, because I suck at finding them and don't always have patience.

Yea you really do need to hang them on a stud, I have a friend who didn't and it fell was a Squire though so not a terrible lose.

^^ True, but if you're going to do something do it right. Find a stud.
It's a fine line between clever and stupid.

no, ive never had a problem, and how the neck is glued, it would be impossible to pull it out via gravity.
