Quick Tip

Here’s a simple way to keep your drill bit from drilling too far into any material. When you need to control your hole depth precisely, there are a number of different depth stoppers you can buy. But if you only need a rough guide, wrap a piece of electrical tape around the drill bit at the depth you want to drill to.

Step by Step Instructions

1 Mark up and drill holes for your bracket
2 Mount the bracket on the wall
3 Hang your bike from the ceiling
  • Step 1. Mark 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.
  • Step 2. Mount 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.
  • Step 3. Hang 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.
