I remember buying my first football helmet several years ago and being really excited to display it. At first I put it on a shelf and it worked fine. But, I soon started adding more helmets and needed to display them differently. I researched options and went to the wall...hanging them on the wall! The pictures show some of the helmets in my sports room. I tried and returned a few "helmet hooks" before I found a simple solution...a 4" U Hook. I have an Amazon link below for a 12 Pack of U Hooks or you can find them at your local home improvement store. The U Hook is super easy to install and the width it is perfect for hanging a football helmet. Let me know how it turns out.
