I need a clip to hang up some windows from my garage. I would like something about 6 inches long, that can be screwed into the wall. Any ideas who might sell these?

What about screw-in-type bicycle hangers?

I have a bunch of bicycle hangers, they are hooks, the windows are canvas with some plastic strategically sown in. It would be more like hanging a small tapestry.

Thanks

If I understand what you want, how about these.

Put a whole in the handle so you can hang it. Or attach two of them to a board and hang the board.

Woody, I didn’t think of that. I was thinking more of a clip similar to a clipboard. But, I think that will work. I have some of these clamps, I’ll give them a shot tomorrow. If they grip nice I’ll put two on a board and mount that.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Woody, thanks again for the suggestion. It worked great. I’ll have to get a picture when I get a chance.

Thanks
