Pistol Mount Installation and Cabinet Hanging Instructions - sfDisplay.com

The Pistol Display Cabinets use easy-to-install hangers. These T-nut mounted plates are very simple to mount and give you a lot of flexibility to place them wherever works best for your unique items. 

Follow the instructions below, download the PDF instructions, or view the video tutorial or similar videos on our YouTube channel for step-by-step instructions on using the T-nut mounted hangers. 


  • Adjustable pistol hanger
  • 2 sets of T-nuts and screws
  • 1 packet of mounting hardware and keys

Step 1: Test fit the hangers.

Test fit hanger(s) with pistol(s) in place to find the most ideal location to mount in cabinet.

Step 2: Drill the holes for the T-nuts.

Mark the 2 holes for drilling. Use a 3/16” drill bit and create the 2 holes for attaching the T-nuts. If you don’t have a drill, you can use a screw that is a bit bigger than 3/16to help make the hole. The center of the T-nut will need to be able to go inside from the back.

Step 3: Insert the T-nuts.

From the back of the case, insert the T-Nuts with the prongs-side facing into the 2 holes as shown in the 1st photo below. Push the T-nuts into the back panel as much as you can.

Step 4: Attach the hanger plate with screws.

Position the hanger plate from the inside to align with the 2 holes/T-nuts. Use the 2 black screws to attach each hanger as shown in 2nd photo.

You will need to screw very tightly, as this will force the T-nut prongs to press into the back panel. A power screwdriver is best for this. The attached hanger from the front should look like the 2nd photo below and from the back like the 3rd photo below.

Step 5: Install the Tear-Drop brackets to the cabinet and screws into the wall.

Install the left and right Tear-Drop brackets to the top corners of the back of the cabinet with the provided small brass screws, see 4th photo below. There are pre-drilled holes to match the brackets.

With a measuring tool, measure the distance between the 2 holes of the left and right Tear-Drop brackets. After locating where you will be displaying the cabinet, measure out the same recorded distance onto the wall. It is important that your measurement is accurate as this will make the attachment easier later. Into the wall, install the 2 large black screws. Use the 2 plastic hollow wall anchors if your wall material requires.

Step 6: Hang the cabinet on the wall!

To hang the cabinet on the wall, simply position the cabinet over the top 2 screws and align with the holes of the Tear-Drop brackets. Slide down the case and rest it on the brackets. Now you are ready to use the cabinet to display your items, test fit the hanger with item again and adjust the hanger if need.
