Always consider the size and weight of the items you plan on hanging or mounting before purchasing French cleat systems. The surface to which you will be mounting also effects which cleat hangers you should use. The light duty French cleat hangers may be installed using standard screws, but with the heavier objects, you will want to use heavy duty or industrial screws and/or fasteners. Additionally, a second cleat system might be required for heavy objects, attaching one set along the top and one set along the bottom of the object being hung – such as when hanging cabinets. For installation, the Sign Bracket Store always recommends hiring a licensed contractor.
