"These are grid panels that are 24" x 84" that I bought new for $30 each. I reinforced them with wood on the sides and bottom and use a heavy duty set of rubber feet on the bottom. I zip tie them to the sta-bars and also zip tie them…"

"I use these metal grids and actually hang them from the top of my Trimline with 2 metal hose clamps and also one hose clamp at the bottom around my stabars.  My work tends to be very heavy per 10ft section and this setup is the most secure…"

"We use the pins on the top but found we had to bungee them to top of tent too.  Last yr we invested in Sta-Bars which we put 2/3 rds up and zip tie grids to them.  They are now super secure."

Gridwall: Metal Art Display issue

We bought gridwalls to display our sublimated metal prints. Our problems are:  What is best for securing the metal prints to the gridwalls so they do not fall off.  The s hooks we bought were small so it did not feel secure.  The metal prints have mounts on them or a wood frame mount on the back. If measuring from aluminum picture to the distance of the mount, it is about 3/4 of an inch away from the grid.We will be displaying sizes from 8" x 10" up to 24" x 30". We are also concerned up the…See More

"Stability is the determining factor. Will they be free standing on the ground? Then you need the screw on connectors. If they will get support from something else, you can get away with using zip ties. The screw on connectors take much more time to…"

We did not get anything to use to hang the mounted pictures. What have you found is the best to use? We will display…See More
