Hang Fast Targets

The Hang Fast Target System

Simple and innovative design


The Hang Fast T post steel target system is TOUGH and was built on the KISS principle.  It is very simple to use with no tools necessary except a hammer to pound in the T post.

The hanger slips over the T post and the weight of the target will hold it in place even under heavy fire.

The target plate attaches to the hanger without tools by means of a short piece of chain or bolt.

This system is designed to have the plate cover the hanger / hardware to protect them from bullet damage

The target plate hangs on a back angle to deflect bullet splatter to the ground.   

The back angle and reactive mounting system divert bullet energy resulting in longer plate life.

The plate is extremely reactive when used with the chain making hits easier to spot at long range.

The single mounting point enhances plate harmonics resulting in a louder CLANG!!

NO WELDS to break or soften the steel. 

Mounting bolt is GRADE 8 for durability

T-Posts are extremely tough and can take a lot of bullet damage which will not affect the hangers performance.

Multiple targets can be hung on the same T post as well as large heavy targets such as a full size 1/2" IPSC.

This system is very portable and when the post is set it will stay in place for years.   The post can also be easily removed when necessary depending on ground conditions.  The posts are very inexpensive and can be placed in multiple locations and move just the targets.

 Very large target plates can be hung using this hanger.  

Our single bolt mounting system allows greater target movement and louder CLANG!

 



The HEART of the system - the Hang Fast Hanger

 STANDARD HANGER                                                    FAIL SAFE HANGER

              


The STANDARD hanger is designed for plates 12" and larger hung by a chain or bolt.  The chain section locks into a "cross slot" to hold the target securely while allowing it to be very reactive.   With the bolt mount the plate mounting bolt simply slides over the tip of the hanger with the weight of the target plate securing it under heavy fire.  Built in wrench for the target bolt and the optional post clamp used in some applications.

 

The FAIL SAFE HANGER is designed to work with plates as small as 6 inches when using large caliber firearms.  The FAIL SAFE SYSTEM will retain the plate 100% while using the heavy hitters and still remain EXTREMELY REACTIVE.

note:  When using with plates supplied by others it is important that when the plate is mounted it covers the hanger to prevent bullet damage.   This is not always possible if the mounting hole in the plate is too high.   Our plates are designed with the hole location specifically to provide this protection as well as enhanced plate angle.

The longer bolt increases target angle.  Target bolt slips over the hanger and weight of the target plate keeps plates firmly in place. Gravity is a lot cheaper than welded brackets that force the target angle.

FAIL SAFE HANGER

          100% target retention using small plates with large calibers.

The closed hole hanger mount used with the T Post Clamp keeps the plate and hanger in place when used with the heavy hitters.


The proof is in the shooting.   This video is a 6" round Fail Safe target being shot with

12 gauge slugs and .308 at 20 yards.   This reactive target will stand up to ANYTHING.






Our versatile hanger works with traditional 2 hole plates and chains too !Works better than sawhorse types on steeper terrain and is impossible to knock over.



No end to the versatility of this hanger.  A customer, an indoor range operator, asked if there was a way to mount a tire using the Hang Fast System to keep bullet spall from damaging the range ceiling.    That is how we developed the Tire Mounting System using existing hangers and hardware.    This system substantially reduces lead spall contamination and damage to surrounding areas like ceilings or nearby paper targets.

          






This is our new ALL TERRAIN SWINGING TARGET.   Patterned after the "dueling tree" design this target is perfect for long range rifle practice providing instant hit feedback.  This target will install ANYWHERE you can pound a T Post on hillsides or uneven terrain!!   It works just as good for pistol too.   All exposed surfaces are fully armored with AR500 3/8 steel plate.  No welds on AR500 to crack or soften the steel.   4, 6 and 8 inch plates are available and can be changed without tools in seconds.

 TARGET ANGLE DECREASES IMPACT ENERGY

The angle of the target plate can be increased by using a longer bolt on plates 12 inches and larger.    Range to the target can be decreased due to the reduction in impact energy.  In this video I'm shooting a .223 with frangible ammunition at 15'.
