    Hello,
    We have utilized VClipz from panelclip.com to install quite a few gatorboard mounted signs. usually two clips on the poster and two on the wall work just fine. We have a larger sign in our shop that keeps falling down. We have used two clips on either side, with VHB tape, and it just won't stay.

    Does anybody else use these. Should I just add a third to the middle? Are there any other techniques for mounting these signs with no visible hardware that people have good success with? Thank in advance.

    This may be helpful.

    The method in Post #5 is how I installed the panels below. Zero issues to date.

    Forgot to mention...after hanging the above, I hung numerous other panels for the same customer.

    I used these on the panels below. They work very well and are what I would use in the future...

    Thanks, that looks like a good method. I may go that route. I think one issue is that we are relying solely on VHB. I think there ought to be some epoxy in there somewhere.

    The Command Strips would be my choice because they don't damage the wall and they hold extremely well.
