When To Use a Starter Kit Versus a Custom Sign Hanging Kit

Upgrade Your Sign Hanging System

The traditional sign hanging process is tedious and requires many moving parts. However, in recent years, revolutionary sign hanging systems have been introduced that make the process safer, easier and quicker than ever before.

Its now possible to NEVER measure, cut, crimp, or use a ladder or lift to hang signs again.

These tools typically include strong ceiling magnets, installation poles, and a connecting cord.

Savvy business owners have already made the switch, while more continue to follow. Now, with custom sign hanging kits available from Ceiling Outfitters®, it is easier than ever adopt this new process.

Ceiling Outfitters, a sign hanging solutions company, offers top-of-the-line tools needed to quickly hang or change ceiling signs. The best part? Each client’s needs are carefully considered because when it comes to hanging signs, one size does not fit all.

Several different kits are available on the website including:

  • Clik-Clik™ Starter Kits
  • Sign Hanging Essentials Kit
  • Reorder Custom Sign Hanging Kits

How to Easily Create a Steel Loop with Ceiling Hanging Hardware

When hanging signs the old-fashioned way, steel cables must be measured, cut evenly and crimps compressed by hand while balancing on a ladder or lift with a box full of tools. All of this in order to create a connecting loop.

This task can be difficult, frustrating, inefficient and even dangerous. Don’t let this process deter you from hanging your visual displays. There is an easy solution with our ceiling hanging hardware!

Introducing the UrbanTrapeze™, a versatile and practical solution, sold by Ceiling Outfitters® that simplifies the installation method when working with steel cables.

Why Use UrbanTrapeze

With retail starting at just over $1.00, UrbanTrapeze won’t break the bank and offers installers a reusable, quick and hassle-free alternative when creating steel loops.

UrbanTrapeze revolutionizes the sign hanging industry with its built-in locking mechanism, which automatically grips the steel cable. This grip is certain to keep the wire loop securely in place for the lifetime of the hanging visual display.

The self-locking device creates an adjustable loop that can be easily manipulated or changed at any time. This allows for reuse of both the UrbanTrapeze and the steel cable. It makes the workflow quicker and easier when changing signage.

UrbanTrapeze is regarded as the perfect ceiling hanging hardware for creating steel loops by savvy retailers, grocers, installation crews, manufacturers, event planners and more. It facilitates the hanging of aisle markers, navigational signs, heavy décor items, lighting systems, HVAC ductwork and other visual displays.

How to Easily Create and Adjust a Steel Loop Using UrbanTrapeze

It is easy to create a secure loop and attach it to a sign with this ceiling hanging hardware! Simply follow these 3 steps:

You'll Never Use A Crimp Again

Step 1. With the UrbanTrapeze and steel cable in opposite hands, insert one end of the cable through either arrow-guided clutch button, pushing several inches of cable through the device. Use the emerging cable for step two and three.

Step 2. Thread the emerging cable through the hanging hardware and back up towards the UrbanTrapeze.

Step 3. Finally, to complete and secure the loop, feed the same end of the emerging cable through the unused clutch button on UrbanTrapeze. The built-in clutch mechanism automatically secures the cable.

Once the loop is complete, you can level your visual display or easily adjust the hanging height with the quick push of either clutch button. This allows the cable to freely move back and forth for quick adjustments.

UrbanTrapeze Specifications

This sleek and compact ceiling hanging hardware is offered in two models:

UrbanTrapeze 1.5 measures 1.25 inches by .75 inch (3.2 x 1.9 centimeters). Its exterior is made of anodized aluminum silver finish which provides protection against corrosion.

The safe working load of the UrbanTrapeze 1.5 is 44 pounds (or 20 kilograms) and requires a 1/6 inch (1.5 millimeter) 7×7 galvanized steel cable.

UrbanTrapeze 3.0 measures 1.94 inches x 1.17 inches (4.9 x 2.97 centimeters). Its exterior is also made of an anodized aluminum silver finish.

The safe working load of the UrbanTrapeze 3.0 is an impressive 198 pounds (or 90 kilograms) and requires a 1/8 inch (3.0 millimeter) 7×7 galvanized steel cable.

For optimal performance, it is recommended both models of UrbanTrapeze not to be used with coated or stainless-steel cables or outdoors.

UrbanTrapeze is Recommended for Use with FlatHat™ Ceiling Hanging Hardware

While UrbanTrapeze can be used in conjunction with other ceiling hanging hardware, Ceiling Outfitters recommends that it be used with the FlatHat™ System for ceilings over 27 feet.

Use the FlatHat receiver to create a Clik-Spot™ or static sign location for open-beam ceiling heights beyond the reach of Clik-Clik™’s installation MagPole™.

The FlatHat system virtually lowers the ceiling height by placing the Receiver at a height the MagPole™ can reach.

Simply determine the desired sign hanging location, install cable over the open-beam and connect the FlatHat Receiver to the free end of the cable using the UrbanTrapeze.

Once the FlatHat receiver is in place the process of installing and changing ceiling signs is quicker, easier and safer from the convenience and safety of the floor using the compatible Clik-Clik Magnetic Sign Hanging System.

The full system includes the FlatHat Receiver, steel cable, UrbanTrapeze, and the Clik-Clik™ Magnetic Sign Hanging System’s installation products including the MagPole™, 24” Dual MagMover™, LoopLine™ and Round ClikMagnet™.
