Did you finally score that hockey stick from your favorite hockey player? Or even better, you found the stick you used while playing in college and want to display it front and center in your man cave. But how? Here are a few different options when it comes to how to display hockey sticks in your hockey man cave.
Before you start your project, make sure you have all of the right tools and know exactly what to do. This is going to make the do-it-yourself job much easier.
Start by figuring out how you want to hang your hockey stick.
Are you using a wall mount? Or perhaps a bracket?
Either way, you are most likely going to be hanging your hockey stick on the wall.
Find the right spot on the wall and take the measurements of the wall mount or bracket, along with the hockey stick.
Do you want it in the center of the wall? Is there going to be enough room?
You can never pay too much attention to the details.
Of course, it will depend on the hooks on the back of the mount or bracket, which will usually come with the proper tools to use along with instructions. Read all of the instructions and use a level to ensure that you are hanging it evenly.
How to Mount a Hockey Stick on a Wall
It is actually quite simple if you have all the tools you need. Keep in mind that it will depend on how many hockey sticks you are looking to display and where you want to display them.
If you are looking to hang just a few hockey sticks on a wall above a television or table, we recommend using brackets made specifically for hockey sticks. You can easily use a bracket for a few or even just one hockey stick.
Mark the spot you want the bracket on the wall and carefully hammer the proper nail to hang the bracket. Make sure it is level and sturdy, then start displaying your hockey sticks.
Brackets are a great way to easily view your awesome hockey sticks without worrying about them getting damaged or misplaced.
Using a Hockey Stick Display Case
Maybe you have that one really special hockey stick that is autographed by your favorite player. You want to keep it really safe while storing it, but also keep it on display. This is where you are going to want to get a display case.
Yes, this is going to take up a little more room as you will want to display the case to be on a sturdy table or a safe place on the floor.
Mounting your display case on a sturdy shelf is also an option. This will require the same work as if you were hanging brackets. You will just want to make sure you have extra room for a bigger shelf to hold the case.
Other Cool Hockey Stick Holder Ideas
Maybe your hockey sticks would look best out of a case and on full display. There are other ways to show them off without using brackets or a display case.
It will depend on how you want to organize and display all of your sports memorabilia.
Do you have a lot of items? Or just a few?
What is the most important piece that you want to be the center of attention?
How much room do you have?
A shelf that is in the right spot on the wall can display a hockey stick (without the case) with other memorabilia such as gloves or even a jersey. This is a way to make a neat shrine for your favorite hockey team.
