DIY Step Image - How to hang a bicycle . Blob storage upload.

Overview

Free up valuable storage space in your shed by storing your bicycle on a wall or ceiling-mounted hanger. Your bicycle will be out of the way and far less likely to get damaged. Mounting a hanger is a simple job to do and can be completed in next to no time.  This video shows you everything you need to know to get the job done.

Steps

1Mark up and drill holes for your bracket

Choose a section of wall that will be easy to get your bike in and out of. Hold the bracket on the wall so that it's level, then mark up and drill your holes. If you are drilling into a brick wall, use a hammer drill. Make sure you drill into the bricks themselves instead of the mortar. If you are mounting on plasterboard or timber, drill into wall studs so it can handle your bicycle's weight.

2Mount the bracket on the wall

Push some spaghetti wall anchors the whole way into each of your holes, trimming them  off with a chisel or sharp knife. Screw the bracket to the wall. Before you fully tighten the screws, make sure that the bracket is level. Once the screws are tightly in place, pull down on the bracket to make sure it's secure, then hang your bicycle.

3Hang your bike from the ceiling

It's possible to hang lighter bikes from the ceiling. Choose an area that's out of the way but will be easy to get your bike in and out of. Drill a hole in the ceiling joist or rafter and then screw the hook into place. Make sure that your drill bit is slightly smaller than the thread of the bike hook so that the hook's thread bites strongly into the timber.
