    Jul 3, 2015, 11:52 PM - Helmet Display Mount #1

    So I was really inspired by Jayvee use of a clock to make his display stand that I saw on this post:
    http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/f23/d...hlight=display

    I was going to give it a crack, but then I realized that I really did not any desk room in my office or mancave to display on a stand. So I was left with the only option of mounting my helmets on the wall.
    I really did not like the generic options you find online or in the store. But on a recent trip to Home Depot and walking down the plumbing isle, it hit me. Black steel piping, it looks industrial, dirty and perfect for Boba Fett.

    I bought all the piping pieces I needed for $12 from Home Depot




    In order to make the helmet sit steady, I took a visit to Hobby lobby to pick up some foam, .5 inch round wooden rod and wood circle board for the bargin price of $8.



    I simply used gorilla glue to add the foam and a screw to connect the rod and the circle board. I also used a bracket with duck tape. A bit of overkill, but I don't want this piece wobbling loose and hearing my helmet
    come crashing down in the middle of the night.





    When mounting the metal floor mount to the wall, remember to use a stud finder to hit the stud or use some quality self drilling dry wall anchors to make this mount solid.



    Boom! Easy Peasy and for about $20.
    I love the industrial look for this bad boy. I will add a second wall mount for my Stormtrooper Helmet.

    By all means fettfw3 go for it, that is why I shared it. So many great ideas on this forum, which makes it great.

    You can also go with a 3/4 or 1inch for a thicker/bigger pipe look as well.

    Here is my finished mounting of both buckets:

    Super3, it is a 2 inch metal L bracket that I had painted for another project and was an extra piece. You can find the bracket at Home Depot or Lowes for $3. I put a small piece of duck tape under Slave1 and near the bottom corner of the bracket to keep it from accidentally sliding. It has held up so far. I guess our next SoCal earthquake will put it to the test.
