I've been looking at different ways to display some of my Riker Mounts. I needed something inexpensive that would also get approval from the wife!

I ended up using some wire closet shelving, hanging them upside down and backwards. They are slightly angled from the wall and will hold 4 mounts each.

Pretty simple, but I think they turned out well. I might add a third shelf once I figure out what I want to display.

Good idea, easy go set up AND reuse or change later as your collection grows and changes.

I like it.

Where do you get your Riker mounts from?

Thanks for all the comments. I've picked up the riker mounts from various places to include;

Good looking. So I'm guessing your wife approved.

  I absolutely LOVE this idea.  I think this will be something I will install in my war room.

That's a terrific idea! Now maybe I can get my riker mounts out of their boxes and up on the wall. Thank you for posting!

Very nice

I used some leftover pieces of 1x4 boards I had. I used brackets that came with the shelves and put felt on the back so they don't scratch the walls.

Fantastic display idea!  I run a wire through holes in the back of mounts and suspend them like any other frame from the wall for display.  Your layout is a great way to show multiple ones together!
