We've been hanging our 'Sicles, Zephyrs, and Triplett Christina harps on the walls of the Harp Center for many years. These new hooks are a great way to safely display your 'Sicle, or other light-weight lap harps, and get it up off the floor! You'll drill 2 holes in your wall and attach the black metal plate with the included screws and anchors. The hook is covered with brown and black rubberized tubing to protect your harp. Then hang your 'Sicle by the upper hole in the back. We're also including a 3" long rubber bumper that you can attach to the wall with the adhesive strip to protect the bottom of your 'Sicle from rubbing against the wall.
According to the manufacturer, if properly installed, these hooks can hold up to 13 pounds.
These installation instructions from the manufacturer are included in the package.
Choose a location for the hanger. Drive the screws through the mounting holes of the hanger into the wall using a Phillips screwdriver. If a wall stud is not found, these pilot holes are necessary for installing the plastic toggles. To do this, use a screwdriver to push and turn the toggle clockwise until flush. Mount hanger with screws into plastic toggles.
(If mounting to a concrete or brick surface, please do not use the enclosed hardware. Appropriate masonry screws can be purchased at your local hardware store.)
Disclaimer: The Sylvia Woods Harp Center takes no responsibility for damage to your harp or other items, or personal injury from using this hook.
