I'm somewhat leery of placing my tenor uke on a floor stand for fear that my always inquisitive and oftentimes rambunctious cocker spaniel might send it tumbling. Do any of you utilize a wall hanger for your ukes when out of the case?

I saw this one and really like the Hercules name for my guitars, but wondered if the tenor uke would weight enough to activate the locking arms. Anyone have one?

all of my ukes are hanging in the wall
1. make a loop with soft rope
2. nail the loop to the wall
3. hang your uke from its head stock the tunners will keep it in the loop
4. Remove the uke from the loop and play a song
5. repeat 3. and 4. as needed :)

I liked the first one so much I asked him to make a second one just like it and it was here within a week- great guy to do business with and and the hangers look great and hold my ukes solidly

Thanks folks, I believe I may pick up one of the hangers from ToucanMango - my wife gave them the seal of approval.

I too use the String Swing. I have a couple for ukes, guitar and dulcimer. All work great.

I don't have any available wall space in my snuggery, so I have four floor stands and one string swing twin mic stand hanger (https://www.stringswing.com/product/cc04twn-twin-hanger-for-mic-music-stand). I also saw these (http://www.amazon.com/Standard-Ukulele-Mandolin-Violin-Leather/dp/B004TDDYTS/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1331650322&sr=8-3) on Amazon and thought they looked like a more than decent alternative to tying string to the tuning pegs.

I have six of those from Toucan Mango, and love them. Unfortunately, I am having to take them down as I have been having humidity issues and will need to store my Ukes in a glass enclosed case instead, but I really loved those hangers.

It really works great and will also work with ukulele's that have wooden tuning pegs.

Thanks Vinny, but even though I'm taking them off the wall I'm hanging on to them. Check out his ebay and etsy sites though, I've seen the same designs again after I bought mine.

I bought a few of Toucan Mango's plain-Jane hooks last weekend. They came to me quickly and well-packaged and were easy as pie to put up with an electric screwdriver.

The only thing is I ordered 3, and I only have 2 ukuleles... at the moment. ;)

Thinking about buying a set from Toucan Mango, but I am wondering if the size is big enough. Does it fit for all types of ukulele, even a guitarlele? I only have tenors and a guitarlele and I am afraid that they wont fit. Can someone tell me in centimeters or something?? :-D

I don't have these hangers but 5cm equals 1.9685 inches.

I designed and printed these a while back. Useful... if you happen to have a 3d printer!

Just print it in two off-set colors and find some bi-color glasses. Problem solved!

HaHa!! Find some bi-color glasses. They are in all McDonalds large size anything. Life used to be so easy. All I needed was a spare set of strings.

The hangers I make should fit your tenors no problem unless you have a custom maybe, most ukuleles have 1-1/2" at the nut or smaller. You just need to check the headstock & make sure they will rest on the pegs evenly because some ukuleles have unique headstocks.
I have made hangers for guitarleles before but they were wider spacing at the buyers request & measurements.
