      Wall attachments

      Here's an interesting one for you guys.
      Does anybody have their Sky router attached to the wall?
      Been racking my brains trying to think of the easiest way to do it, without any major d-i-y!
      Pictures would be nice!
      Thanks

      Hook and loop sticky tape (velcro) might do it!

      Re: Wall attachments

      If you do use hook and loop tape, be sure to buy the stuff that is actually made by VELCRO (pictured below).

      I recently bought some cheaper/unbranded stuff to put a print on the wall and woke up the next day to find it on the floor...and damaged!

      I then bought the proper VELCRO stuff and it holds solid (the print is huge and weighs more than a router). According to the box, a 20mm length will hold up to 560g so it should work, especially if you use a few strips (read the instructions though if you do decide to use it).

      You say you are using a non-Sky router. Some routers have slot holes on the bottom for wall mounting, check yours.

      No, it's a standard Sky router

      Re: Wall attachments

      You could screw the base/legs to the wall. Superglue them to the body of the router for safety. A bit tidier than Velcro

      Re: Wall attachments

      Personally I'd use the Velcro option as it doesn't involve any drilling and making holes in your walls. Plus you could just pull it off the wall anytime you wanted or needed to if you used Velcro tape.

      Have you made a decision yet, steadyeddie?
