    Another vote for String Swing. I have several that work very well. Plenty of clearance for the tuners. Just be sure to buy the ukulele version, and not the guitar version.

    I don't like hanging up my ukes. With a little over sixty right now, I'd have to remove every else from the walls. Inside their cases, they're protected, and they stay clean. I keep a basic walnut Flea near my chair, and one or two others nearby in their cases. The only one that is hanging up is a soprano that I made into a clock. If I were to hang more, I would get these hangers.

    My local uke shop has about the same or less number of ukes hanged on their walls. I would be spoilt for choices if you ever setup a shop.

    Another vote for the String Swing. My pineapple and my wife’s Rebel have permanent space on our bedroom wall using them.

    They do make different sizes for different instruments, so be sure you’re looking at the ukulele/mandolin one of you go this route.

    String Swing is awesome. I mounted mine together on some barn wood. I used hair rubber bands to make a sort of seatbelt for them so that the ukes don't come out unless it is on purpose. I've also used the String Swing hangers for sax and clarinet--they look great together!

    I just got a couple CC01K hangers from String Swing. Wanted the flexibility to hang any of my instruments and haven't noticed a problem with my Kamaka that's currently on it not fitting due to it being a "guitar" hanger. They do a pretty good job posting specs and widths on their site so you can make a smart decision. I like that it has the dip in the design to cradle the uke front and back.

    This depends a lot on the specific headstock and tuners. I have a mix of ukulele/mandolin hangers and guitar hangers. None of the guitars or basses (including the U-bass) fit in the ukulele/mandolin hangers. Most of the ukuleles will work in the guitar hangers: some (especially the tele-headed Fender) require tilting the hanger to an angle, and some hang by their tuner ears. The one with tuning pegs requires the ukulele hanger.

    In addition to the string swings on the walls / racks, I have two that can clamp onto my music stand. I find this more convenient (for small instruments), safer, and with a smaller foot-print than using a floor stand.

    Gentlemen, I'd like to thank you for all your suggestions. Based on majority of recommendation I purchased a String Swing hangers. Except I went for a different model than most. It's the same hook but with a different wall plate. Round black wall plate matches my other guitar hooks much better. Results are excellent, though: even my vintage Martin with a pretty small headstock fits great and pegs do not touch the hook. The model number of the hangers I got is CC02UK (in case someone else is searching this tread later looking for the same info). Thanks again.

    They are attractive, work very well and are made in America. I have 4 of them on my wall at home.
    There are cheaper options that are made over seas.
    Just got one of these. Very pleased.

    Great idea! Gonna try that.
    There is a subtle yet profound difference between the learning of something and the knowing of that thing.
