Posted By: Oldgas Hanging a sign that has no mounting holes - Sat Jul 11 2015 12:52 AM
I have several signs that were displayed in a frame or were made in a way that they did not have any mounting holes. I also has a couple flange signs that I wanted to mount flat on the wall. Drilling non-factory holes was just not an option for me.

After a talk with my local old-school hardware store guy, I walked out with several sets of mirror hanging clips.

The clips mount behind the sign, mostly out of sight when finished. The upper clips are spring loaded. To install sign, put the sign into the hook of the upper clips and push up 1/4". Then swing the sign down into the hooks of the lower clips and the upper clips will follow the upper edge down to keep it secure. Measuring as the instructions specify is the key.

Doesn't take long. No need to drill the sign. Easy to remove sign, if needed.

Looks great Jim....... I do the same thing with the clear plastic mirror clips and they are made so that the sign fits right up against the wall.

Mirror clips have been a mainstay for me, when hanging my ad glass...

Jim, the ones you are using; look quite different that the "cheap ones" I use! LOL

The sign looks good!

Certainly simpler than having to make frames for them!

...I don't think that's a viable option for anyone who claims to care about this stuff...
