Door Hangers






MATERIALS:
(4) Jumbo Heavy Duty Hangers w/ Padding (50lb rating each)
(6) 3/8" x 3 1/2" Lag Bolts
(6) Washers for 3/4" bolts
(8) 1/4" x 2" Lag Bolts
(8) Washers for 1/4" bolts
2"x8"x 5' (2x10 or 2x12 would work if you have 5' laying around)
Drill Bits for wood sized: 5/16" and 7/32"
Wrench Set

Total Cost ~ $35
Build Time ~ 1.5 hrs


Step1- Decide where to mount the board, somewhere that allows your doors to hang without hitting anything. Plan on taking up 5'x5' of wall space. I placed the top of the board 6 1/2' from the floor- to allow the hooks to be at about the same level of the top of the doors when I have them in my arms.
Step 2- Locate 4 studs (16" on Center)- I always use an outlet to find a stud, there will be a stud on (1) side of an outlet.
Step 3- Pre-Drill 2 holes on both ends of board to get it mounted to the wall. Use a drill bit 5/16"- that allows the lag bolt to still "grab" into the wood.
Step 4- After mounting to wall with (2) 3/8" lag bolts and washers, pre-drill remaining (4) holes.
Step 5- Attach the (4) 3/8" lag bolts with washers, torq down good (I used my air impact wrench to speed up the process)
Step 6- Mark and pre-drill holes for the (2) outer brackets. Measuring in 1 1/2" from the outside of the board. Use the bracket as your template for the holes
Step 7- Attach the outer brackets using the 1/4" lag bolts and washers.
Step 8- Measure from your outside brackets, go in 14" on center for the inner (2) brackets. Pre-Drill and attach the same way as you did in Step 6. (Note- 14" on center is used so each set of brackets hold a Front door AND a Rear Door)
Step 9- Give the brackets the 'ol tug test before putting the doors on.
Step 10- Put front doors on first as close to the wall as you can, then the rear doors, keeping them close to the wall (better weight distribution).

OPTIONAL: I had some insulation laying around I put between the doors to keep any scratches down. If you have something similar you may want to use it.

finished paiting the hangers

I got around to bed-lining the wood and painting the brackets
I would have put a JKO decal but all i had were some black 1's and they wouldn't have showed up, so i found a Q-tec 1 laying around

Thumbs up Door hangers

Indiana,
Thanks for the great post, well maybe not........my other half found your post and had me working all day Sunday (only kidding it was a half day) so she can hang her doors when her tube doors arrive on Friday.
Went to home depot and bought the items listed in your post with the addition of 8 lead wall anchors (installing into concrete block). My bill came to just at $60.00 for all the items. Anyway here's how it turned out........

Thanks again for the plans

JJ

Great Idea... I didn't have the wall space so had to go another route. I built a little cart for mine.

Hate to revive a old thread but what is the reason for the wood backing? My Garage is concrete, why couldn't I just tapcon the hooks to the wall?
