Description

Our Standard Hanger uses several mounting options to meet your specific needs.

CHAIN MOUNT:

  • Very reactive in all directions.  Resets in under 3 seconds.  (unlike conveyer belt targets that seem to never stop swinging)
  • Enhances plate harmonics for great sound
  • Works with our 10″ plates and larger and weighing 10+ lbs.
  • Using YOUR plates the bolt hole MUST be located a minimum of 3.5″ from the top of the plate or the hanger and chain will be exposed.
  • Plates weighing less than 10 lbs. can be knocked off the Standard Hanger with high energy projectiles.

BOLT MOUNT:

  • Very reactive front to back.  Side movement is limited.  Great for rapid fire pistol.
  • Use with top hole plates over 10 lbs
  • Angle is adjustable with the length of bolt.
  • Plates weighing less than 10 lbs. can be knocked off the Standard Hanger with high energy projectiles.
  • A 5″ Grade 8 bolt can be used with the 66% IPSC for a close range rifle target.  (2800 fps or less)

T POST CLAMP:

  • This clamp is used primarily with the FAIL SAFE hanger with 6″ and 8″ plates to keep the hanger from walking down the post when using heavy loads.
  • The STANDARD hanger becomes unstable on the post when there is no weight on it.   The beam clamp keeps the hanger in place while hanging or taking down plates…especially the heavy ones.
  • Fixes hanger locations on T Posts for repeatability.  An example is our TIRE TARGET SYSTEM.

Our Hangers come with built in wrenches for the Iron Beam Clamp and target bolt.

Using the STANDARD hanger with YOUR target plates:

 The Hang Fast Hanger is designed to hold the plate in a position that PROTECTS the hanger and hardware from bullet damage.  The plate MUST cover the hanger to accomplish this.   The bolt hole location in the plate is critical when using this hanger with the Chain Mount and MUST be at least 3 ¾” down from the top or the hanger will be exposed to bullet damage.   The smallest plate that can be used with our STANDARD hanger and a chain is 10”.  For smaller plates use our FAIL SAFE Hanger.  Most plates manufactured by others have the bolt hole located too high to use with our hanger and CHAIN combo.  For these plates a single bolt can be used to hang the plate.  DO NOT tighten the bolt tight against the hanger.    Our STANDARD hanger is designed to be used with plates 10” and larger.   For  plates 12” and larger the plate bolt hole should be located 1/3 the height of the plate down from the top.  This bolt hole location allows the plate to hang at approx. 15 degree angle.   For example, a 12 inch plate would have the hole at 4” down from the top, an 18″ plate would have the hole at 6″ from the top.   Our hanger is designed to work best with OUR plates but your plates can be used if the these recommendations are followed.

Grade 8 Bolt info

GRADE 8 CARRIAGE BOLTS:

    • Plates hit with high energy rifle rounds transfer a massive amount of stress forces to the bolt head that will shear off non grade bolt heads.  (giving the false impression they were shot off.)
    • Tensile strength – maximum load that a material can support without fracture when being stretched.
    • Grade 8 Tensile Strength is 150,000 psi   Low carbon non grade bolts are 60,000 psi
    • Grade 8 bolts are NOT bulletproof and can be shot through.  However, they do take less damage from hits than non grade bolts.
    • Carriage bolt heads have a low profile and reduce splatter deflection significantly.
    • Carriage bolts used with square hole plates eliminate the need for 2 wrenches for installation.
    • Grade 8 carriage bolts are almost impossible to find at local hardware stores, be sure to buy them with your order.
    • Everybody hates target failures and grade 8 bolts go a long way to reducing them.

We tested non grade hardware store carriage bolts and this one lasted about 20 rounds from a 7.62 x 39 on a 12 x 20 silhouette plate @ 50 yards.  The target plate hit the ground and we all thought the bolt had been hit and shot through… but this is what we found.   This failure is exactly what a grade 8 bolt is designed to prevent.
