Hang It Dang It Wall Quilt Hanger

A reader asks...

Has anyone heard of the Hang It Dang It Quilt Hanger?

This looks like a really easy way to hang a quilt.

Has anyone tried it?

Julie replies...

If you've hung quilts with this system, please do rate and comment on the Hang It Dang It wall quilt hanger system. Since I have not used it, I did a little research.

This quilt hanging system is advertised as a "one nail/self-leveling" wall quilt hanger.

It comes in three sizes for quilts from 21" to 35", from 35" to 63" and from 63" to 104".
Hang It Dang It Quilt Hanger

To hang your quilt, you'll need:

  • A finished quilt with a standard quilt sleeve sewn to the back at the top, the sleeve can be continuous, no need to split the sleeve in half to leave a gap
  • Hammer and nail
  • Ladder or step stool if you need to reach a higher spot on your wall
  • Straight pin

Quilt Hanging Instructions

Just follow these easy steps (or skip to the Hang It Dang It instructional video.)
  1. Find the center of your quilt, mark it with a straight pin on the back of your quilt.

  2. Match the center of the hanging rod (there's a line) to the center of the sleeve.

  3. Pull the ends out on the rod until they are even with the edge of the quilt sleeve on both sides.

  4. Give each end of the rod a slight twist to lock it in place. (You don't want your rod changing size on you when you're in the middle of hanging.)

  5. Now slide the Hang It Dang It rod into your fabric hanging sleeve, aligning the rods ends with the edges of the sleeve.
    Make sure the rod is positioned at the top of the sleeve.

  6. Take your hanger bracket, match it to the center of your quilt sleeve where it's marked.

  7. Snap it into place with both hands. Your quilt is ready to hang on the wall.

  8. Determine where you'd like your quilt to hang on the wall and hammer in a nail.

  9. Hang your quilt on the nail. Because the quilt is centered on the rod and hangs from just one point (the nail) it should hang perfectly straight. You can "scoot" the quilt a bit to one side or the other if needed.

Great hanger
by: Anonymous

I’ve used small and medium sizes. Needed help with medium size but have 4 panels on it. One wallhanging has more embellishment and stitching on one side. When it wouldn’t hang evenly, I stitched a small washer to back, evening the weight. I like concealed hangers and this is best I’ve found.

From the Editor:

Thank you for sharing your experience! And tweeks!

Wouldn't Hang a Quilt Any Other Way
by: Cheryl



But given the significant investment of time and resources to make each quilt, well worth it.

It's so easy and works wonderfully, without husband types getting weirded out about excessive holes in the wall. I use them for every quilt I hang in my house and include them along with wall hanging quilts that I give as gifts.

From the Editor: I hear ya, Cheryl! Especially about the weirded-out husbands...allergic to nail holes!

Agree with another poster - there's got to be a cheaper way...
by: Anonymous

I think I'll try the 2 x ??" wood slats from Lowes. I'll probably make mine about 6" longer than the width of the quilt, though, because my sleeves end at the binding. There are plenty of cute wooden shapes you can pick up at the craft stores. Stain or paint the wood and glue on the shapes at the end to cover the nail holes. A little more work, but should look great IMO. Still far less than $40-50 for a hanger!

Or, just do it the cheaper way to make a no-show hanger with sleeves 2" shorter on both sides of the quilt so that board/slat ends stay under quilt.

Super System!
by: Anonymous

I have purchased one and I am very happy with it. It's a bit pricey, but really like the sturdiness of the hanger, the ease of hanging, and ability to resize the hanger with different quilts. I will definitely purchase more.

Great product, but too expensive
by: Anonymous

This product does exactly what it says it will do. One hole in the wall and you can hang many different size quilts and they are very straight and very even. But--it is really expensive no matter what size you get, it's overpriced. I have the medium one and I do like it, but I am trying to come up with something cheaper to do the same thing.

It Works!
by: Ginny

This is an exceptional product that does exactly what it says it will do. It will hang a quilt or wall hanging on your wall perfectly flat and even against the wall using ONE nail. Cost high? Well - look around on the Internet and you will find a variety of prices.

Hang It Dang It
by: Nan

At age 70 I have had to patch too many holes in my walls. I love to "change my quilts throughout the year".

Nailed in the wall hangers kept forcing me to re-design patterns to fit. The Hang It Dang It eliminates those limitations. The smaller Hang It Dang It, will allow me tons of flexibility!

Someday I may be down-sizing and this would be the perfect holder to to take with me. I think cost is not the biggest issue on this item. It is about the possibilities offered and long term usage. Young or old we all have different needs and phases in our lives. I keep an open mind when reviewing a product.

My husband is an engineer - why did I not think of this? Sigh!

I'm off to order my Hang It Dang It, This morning I saw it on the net at a lower retail price.

Quilt Hanging
by: Diane

I do something similar with flat metal continental curtain rods and magnetic D rings. Quick, easy, adjustable and self-leveling plus it costs less.

I like the Hang It Dang It
by: Anonymous

The nice thing about the "Hang It Dang It" is only one hole is made in the wall which means different sized quilts can be hung without having to change the width of the holes in the wall. I have one and it allows me to display different quilts without making more holes in the wall and I don't need a collection of different lengths of wooden dowel since the "Hang It Dang It" rod is adjustable.

No Way!
by: Lynne Demeter

There is no way I would pay that kind of money for a hanger like that. I've got 6 - 45" wall hangings and numerous smaller one throughout my home. For the longer ones I go to Lowes and buy 2" x 45" good wood strips. Just cut them 2" longer than the sleeve, drill a hole 1/2" in from the end. Mark your holes (yes, there are two!) using a level on top of your strip, add the nails, slip the wood into the sleeve and hang it on the wall. Note the sleeve should be 2" short on each side of the wall hanging.

Total cost: $3.95.

For smaller quilts I just cut down a yardstick from Ace Hardware.

Total cost: $0.99.

The smallest hanger they offered was $40.00. I'm sorry, I'd rather spend my money on fabric.
