Long overdue, considering I bought them in October of last year, I finally installed the Lange Originals Jeep door hangers from Quadratec. Oh, and let me tell you, these hangers are great. The installation is fast and no special tools are needed. What you’ll need: a pencil, a level, a drill and drill bits, and grease (optional). Everything else needed is supplied in the box from Quadratec.
As you see in the image, everything you need is included in the box, however, you might need a little grease to slide the foam covers on the arms when you’re finishing the installation. I was able to mount these in an hour, here’s the quick and dirty on how to get it done.
- Once you’ve chosen your wall location, grab your stud locator and locate the studs. You want to hit the studs center so, like many other installations, look for 16” center to center (this can vary wildly due to windows, doors, etc.).
- Hold the brackets against the wall at the stud locations you’ve identified and mark the wall with your pencil. I suggest you mark through the pre-drilled holes of the brackets.
- Drill pilot holes in the wall where you’ve marked the hole mounting locations.
- Place a bracket against the wall and run down the upper bolt until it’s slightly snug.
- Run down the lower bolt hole until it’s slightly snug.
- Place your level against the side of the bracket vertically and tighten both the upper and lower bolts ensuring the bracket is level once completely tightened.
- Repeat for the other bracket.
- Next, take the provided upper arm and insert it into the wall bracket (it will be extending toward you and away from the wall).
- Using the provided screws (2 for each bracket), tighten down the extended arm(s).
- Repeat on the other side.
- Next, take the cosmetic plastic squares and snap them into the bottom of the wall brackets and the arms extending from the wall.
- Lastly, slide on the foam pads onto each arm. You may need to grease the arm if the foam doesn’t slide on easily.
That’s it, you’re done!
