Wall Stand Support Page
When you open the box for the stand, you will find a lot of paper and two plastic pipe structures. The smaller, lighter bundle is the toe board. Be careful of the two sharp screws that stick out of the ends. The larger, heavier structure is the dart stand. Set the stand aside and start with the toe board.
Take off the rubber band, and push together each piece connected together with shock cord. If you shake it, it will practically assemble it self. When you are done, you will have two 8-foot long poles and a two-foot larger pipe between them with a bump in the middle. Set this aside and assemble the stand.
It is easier to construct the stand on the floor lying on its back.
The top is a C shaped piece with a bolt sticking out of the middle.
The bottom is the most complex piece with several elbows and several Tee joints. Find the top piece and start from there.
It is all held together with shock cord, so all you have to do is push together the pieces connected together with cord. Occasionally, the shock cord from different pieces will get twisted together when you unpack the box, and you will have to untwist it. The front feet are held with rubber bands. When everything else is assembled, put the front feet together and attach them to the empty Tee joints in the middle of the stand.
It is easiest to mount the dart board to the stand while it is lying on the floor. There are four bolts in the pieces at the top of the stand. Disconnect the top piece from the side pieces. Now insert the bottom bolt in the hole in the middle of the bottom of the dart board. Then insert the two side bolts. Put the top bolt in part way. It will go in the rest of the way when you re-attach the top piece of the stand.
You can now stand it up and press all the joints tightly together. It is designed to be stable leaning against a wall. Call us for modifications, if you need to have it free-standing.
Lastly, with a Phillips head screwdriver, attach the toe board to the stand. You will find holes for the screws in the middle of the elbow joint at the bottom of the tall vertical sides.
When you are playing, the bump in the middle of the toe board tells you where the middle is. You can press it with your toe to find your position. It may be helpful to tape the toe board to the floor to stop it from moving sideways.
Depending on what kind of wall you have, and how thick the molding is at the bottom, you may want to put some kind of padding behind the dart board to stop it from banging against the wall, when darts are thrown. Some people also like to put something around the dart board to protect the wall from stray darts.
When not in use, you can fold the toe board up against the stand to get it out of the way. If your ceiling is less than eight feet tall, you can either bend the side poles to fit, wedge it against the ceiling, or take apart one of the joints in the side poles so that it folds. Velcro tabs are included to help hold it up.
Assembly Instructions - Needed only if you cut the shock cord:
If you do not intend to dissemble the stand, you can make it really solid with $5 of PVC pipe glue from any hardware store. If you ever need to remove the dart board, you can remove the screws that hold it in.
