    Hello,
    I'm hoping to get a recommendation on a product that would allow us to blind mount about a dozen 6" x 6" ACM signs for tenant identification on outdoor units. We would want to be able to switch them out without damaging the exterior of the building. I think they're a little to small for a French cleat style handing system. I was temped to create something with a backing plate that is screwed to the building and then perhaps something like dual lock to mount the actual sign, but thought there might be something a little easier/better that someone knows of.

    you're gonna damage the building either way: simply tape & silicone to building, or drilling holes for mounting hardware.

    got a pic to work with, or maybe additional details like brick & mortar or aluminum siding or whatnot?
    otherwise, +1 MBS-standoffs for a great reference to the kind of kits/hardware readily available for fancy-mounting interchangeables.

    Agreed, though you need to consider whether these are likely to get stolen/vandalized. They make some with a set screw that cost more. If they are not likely to get messed with, aim for the version with the screw/cap section as on piece, these things add up rapidly when your quote 4 corners x 20 units. Aside from saving money, it'll save you a ton of time in opening itty bitty baggies for each and every component...

    The quick snap from MBS is perfect. Thank you!!

    And I should have clarified, I don't mind "disturbing" the mounting surface, but would want to be able to change it without say, ripping off a ton of VHB and silicone. This system allows me to ship the client a replacement that they can pop off/on. Thank you again.
