Made to last
Our handcrafted leash holders are built to last. The maple wood is butcher block and over 1" thick. The bone hooks are made of metal with a nickel finish and if secured to the wall properly can easily hold the weight of leashes, bags, umbrellas, etc. Keep reading for how to secure your dog leash board to any type of wall.
We hand sand each one and then finish it with a clear matte poly finish. This will protect the wood from warping and drying out due to humidity and temperature fluctuations in your home.
How to hang your new dog leash holder
They come ready to hang, no assembly required:) We even include all the hardware needed to anchor the leash holder to a hollow wall. No running to the hardware store to pick up anchor screws. We attach the keyhole hangers on the back and we include 2 screws and 2 anchors. The only items you will need are a phillips head screwdriver, or phillips head bit attached to a hand drill, a pencil, a ruler and a small level.
Measure twice, drill once
There are 2 keyhole hangers attached to the back, this way the dog leash board will stay secure to the wall and will stay straight when you are using it. First, measure the distance between the center of the openings of the keyhole hanger. This is the distance you will want to screw in the anchors. Mark the wall with a pencil where the first anchor will go into the wall and then using a ruler with built in level or a ruler and a small level, measure and put a pencil mark where the second anchor will go into the wall. You will need to make sure this is level otherwise the leash board will not hang straight on the wall.
Instructions for hanging
The anchors and screws we provide are to be used for hollow walls only. Below we list the most popular wall materials with instructions for each.
Hollow wall, like drywall or paneling: First you will need to screw in the anchor. You don't need to pre-drill a hole. Use a phillips head bit and with a drill (or screwdriver) screw the anchor into the wall. If using a drill go slow because the anchor head needs to be flush with the wall. You don't want it sticking out or you don't want it pushed in too far either. You can always use a screwdriver for the last couple turns. Once this is in place you will need to insert the screw into the anchor leaving the head of the screw sticking out a little so it will fit in the keyhole hanger.
Plaster: The only difference with this wall material is that you will need to pre-drill into the plaster/brick and then use plaster anchors which are readily available at most hardware stores. Do not use the anchors and screws we have provided.
Solid wall like beadboard or shiplap which is at least 1/4" thick will just need the screws not the anchors. The head of the screw will need to be out from the wall a little bit to fit in the keyhole.
We give you lots of choices but you won't go wrong with whichever dog leash holder you choose. Just think how organized you will be! Thanks for stopping by.
