PostSubject: Got my board and got my darts!!!   Fri Jan 25, 2013 3:43 pm

Well....got my darts last week and the board arrived today....after 5 diff attempts to put it up on 5 diff walls i finally thought i'd cracked it! So off i goes and all was well....

Then i had a problem with the stems coming loose....didn't realise you used the hole to tighten them up so once i knew it was all good!

But not long after......the dartboard fell off the wall and killed one of my darts!!!!!! I have no spare stems as of yet and think i need a guy to put the board up but hey i will be back!!!!!!!!

And i didn't realise how dirty my keypad was till i saw the pic so no comments thank you....been thoroughly cleaned with a toothbrush!

Oh Carole. What happened?

The easiest way I have found to hang a board, is to get a sheet of MDF and fix that to the wall, then mount the board on the MDF. This also protects your wall from stray darts.

This is what I mean.

You will probably need to use a drill Carole. Ask a friend if they have one you can borrow.

I have gathered that Jimbo!! I dont think blu tac and sellotape are ideal.....especially after it fell off the wall and killed my dart :-( Thankfully the dogs learnt very quickly to stay away from me whilst throwing! running dog Hopefully i can find someone to sort it for me...get the lakeside booked for me for next year! darts throw

LOL I had to laugh too, but good job your dogs were not under it. But looks like you were just getting the hang of it too.

Well it was a blessing in disguise blowing my lights up by putting a nail through the wire whilst putting my cardboard backboard up!!!!!!! The electrician put my board up properly and brought me 2 stems!! Sorted!
