Lighting Up Your Space, Drill-Free: How to Hang a Neon Sign Without Making Holes

Hey, not everyone's into drilling! Whether you're in a rental, want to keep that vintage wallpaper pristine, or simply don't fancy turning your wall into Swiss cheese, there's a way to rock a neon sign without any drilling. Let's dive in.

Suspended Neon Sign: The No-Drill Solution

Enter the suspended pre-mounted neon sign! This beauty comes with a backplate and a handy hanging system equipped with steel cables. Kind of like hanging a piece of art, but way cooler.

Here's the lowdown:

  1. Check your space for pre-existing hooks, curtain rods, or any other sturdy hanging points. No hooks? No problem! Consider using adhesive hooks that can handle the weight (but always check their weight capacity).
  2. Ensure the hanging point is robust enough to carry the sign's weight. We wouldn't want any neon tragedies.
  3. Attach the steel cables to the pre-mounted neon sign.
  4. Loop or hook the other end of the cable onto your chosen hanging point.
  5. Check and double-check that the sign hangs straight and is well-balanced.

Stick 'Em Up: The Glue Option for LED Neon Signs

While LED neon signs are the lightweights of the neon family, and sure, you could technically slap on some heavy-duty industrial glue to get them on your wall, we've got to pause here for a sec.

A Word of Caution: While it might sound like a quick fix, we don't really recommend using glue. Why? Well, over time, glue might lose its grip, and your neon sign could come tumbling down. Plus, removing it later might leave a mark. So, think long and hard before going the glue route.

There you have it! A couple of nifty ways to get your neon glow without ever touching a drill. Just always ensure that safety comes first, and that glowing sign will light up your space in no time. Enjoy the luminous vibes!

Standing and tabletop signs

For even more flexible and mobile solutions, we offer encased neon or LED neon signs. These practical tabletop neon signs come in an acrylic box with the converter inserted into the base. The "neonbox" is able to stand freely on its own, so you can easily keep it standing on a shelf or standing on a floor (just make sure it's not in the way so nobody steps on it!). You also have the option of hanging it on the wall via keyholes.

For reasons of stability and safety, there are of course size limitations to this product variant. It’s best suited for small and compact designs.
