When your store or building has higher ceilings (8+ feet), how do you safely hang signs (such as retail signs) without endangering your employees or customers?
Do you risk letting a member of your from balance on a ladder? Maybe you decide to shut down part of your store when using a scissor lift?
Forget all of that! Here’s 4 easy steps to hang level signs from the ceiling safely, quickly, and easily.
Telescoping installation poles (that extend) are not only safer for your employees, but they also allow you to change retail signs more often with a quick installation process. Ceiling Outfitters offers one of the easiest-to-use installation poles called the MagPole™, which can reach ceilings up to 27 feet tall (for ceilings taller than 27 ft, use this).
With an extending/telescoping sign installation pole, you’ll never have to use a ladder again!
2. Choose a sign hanging system.
There is a variety of hanging systems to choose from. Choosing the right sign hanging system will depend entirely on your ceiling. Ceiling clips are how but may be difficult to install from 27 feet below. If you have metal on your ceilings and they’re less than 27 feet high, the best option would be to use a magnetic sign hanging system (such as the Clik-Clik™ System). If your ceilings are higher than 27 feet, you’ll want to use this “FlatHat” system. Powerful ceiling magnets connect to any metal surface (including painted metal surfaces) and have clips for attaching the sign hang banner. These magnets are small but mighty! The variety of ClikMagnets can easily hang heavy signs.
3. Select a pole attachment that allows you to quickly attach and detach your sign.
Your installation pole attachment will depend on the kind of attachment system you are using. If you decide to use a magnetic system, Ceiling Outfitters offers the MagMover pole-head attachment. The MagMover is used to attach and detach the sign from the pole/beam. The magnets attach automatically to any metal surface and the corkscrew attachment allows you to remove the magnets with ease.
4. Attach your sign to your hanging system and ensure the sign will hang evenly.
Nothing is more frustrating than hanging your sign, stepping back, and seeing that it is lop-sided. Tying knots in the string/line isn’t reliable because it’s nearly impossible to make two knots the exact same size at the exact right ceiling every time so that the sign hangs evenly. We’ve developed a special kind of line specifically for hanging signs evenly from ceilings without needing to go through the process of measuring out the line and tying the knots! LoopLine is patented with continuous 2-inch repeating loops that allow you to quickly hang your sign (see how this works).
Just like that, your sign can be hung quickly, safely, and evenly!

CLEVER WAYS TO From YOUR PLANTS
This is Deanna’s house. She shares her vintage style and love for plants on Instagram @habitpattern.sf. I need to visit her home someday (for obvious reasons) but I’m sharing this picture today because I LOVE this tension rod ( similar to this one or this one) she uses to display her hanging plants. It’s perfect for someone in an apartment or temporary living situation.
This photo is from @tribeandus. I have a total crush on them. Their house is so amazing and their little family is SO CUTE! In their bedroom, they’ve used S hooks to hang macrame plant hangers on everything from existing light fixtures to hung wall art. It’s a great way to hang plants without putting too many holes in your walls. They also just started a blog tribeandus.com with plant DIYs and Inspiration!
Shay shares her craftiness and her plant obsession at @stitchandtape. I love what she did here by using the plant’s own macrame hanger as a trellis of sorts. It looks like the plant is growing up and right back down! Shay also uses S hooks on her curtain rod to hang these plants. Easy peasy!
Scott is the KING of balcony gardens. I mean look at this place! It’s his own little tropical oasis. My favorite thing about Scott’s balcony is how he uses all different styles of plant hangers to really create the perfect eclectic jungle vibe. Follow him on Instagram @tropicaloco
Welcome to my home! This hanging shelf is something I had my husband build for me. AND I LOVE IT! It took an afternoon and some time to hang it but that’s it! It’s just unfinished wood but the plants will eventually cover it up You can see more of my plant inspiration on Instagram @cleverbloom
Ohh Chi…this girl has so much style! Owner of simplychivintage.com, she has a way of finding vintage pieces and mixing them to create a boho eclectic style. She incorporates a lot of plants into her home and work. In this photo, Chi shows us how you can take just about anything and make it into a planter. With a little bit of string and a sturdy decorative branch, now you have a funky plant display that’s so unique! She has tons more inspiration on Instagram @simplychivintage
Morgan from @plantingpink has done something so simple here but I love it! She took two macrame ceiling hangers and hung them on the same hook. That’s it! It makes for a fun grouped together look that you can always switch out from time to time.
Laney from @pineandbirch makes really amazing, quality wood signs. In this picture I love how she’s hung a leather planter from a coat rack. It’s such a fun way of displaying plants in your entryway.
Jeannie Phan is an illustrator and a plant lover. She shares her plant love and decor on Instagram @studioplants. I love how she mixes a bright white modern looking home with plants housed in vintage baskets (similar to this one). In this photo she hangs vintage baskets on the wall with vining plants like philodendrons.
Sabrina has an awesome Instagram account full of beautiful plants. This picture in particular made me stop scrolling and go back. I’ve always been a fan of exposed beams. There is something very industrial about them that I love and when I saw that she hung plants from one, I was like, WHAT?! It just looks so cool. She used hook lag bolts to hang her macrame plant hangers.
@theoperatingsystem is one of my favorites to follow on Instagram. Olena has an eye for fancy foliage and really proves that in her photography. She’s in a NY apartment and finds brilliant ways to hang and display her huge plant collection. Here she’s using a coat rack (I believe) to hang her plant hangers. It’s a great idea especially if you live in a place where you can’t put holes in the walls or ceiling.

How to Hang a Decorative Object From the Ceiling
Locate a ceiling joist using a stud finder. Whenever possible, it’s best to hang a heavy object from a load-bearing joist beam, that way the item has plenty of support. To locate a ceiling joist beam, run a stud finder along the ceiling until the machine beeps, indicating the presence of a stud. To make sure there is actually a joist underneath, rap the area with your knuckles. If it sounds hollow, look for another spot.
Make marks on the hang where the object will hang. Make a pencil mark indicating the location of the stud. If you’re only using 1 hanging attachment for your object, this mark how all you need. If you’re using multiple hanging attachments, measure where they will connect to the object relative to the item’s center. Then, create marks on the ceiling representing those distances, treating the stud as the center of the object.
- Though some objects may not fit entirely on a joist, especially wide or strangely shaped ones, you should place as many of their hanging attachments on the joist as possible.
Grab C-shaped hooks to hang objects close to the ceiling. C-shaped ceiling hooks are long, curved hooks with a screw mount on one end. They screw directly into the wood and, when properly installed, are incredibly secure. When purchasing a hook, look for the exact weight limit to make sure it can hold your object.
Get wire clips to support low hanging objects. Wire hook clips are thin, fish-shaped pieces of metal that attach to ceiling hooks and allow you to hang objects at a much lower level. Wire clips are particularly good for hanging loose objects, like dangling light fixtures or art pieces. Be aware that these clips usually hold less than normal hooks, so check their weight limit before use.
Purchase ceiling anchors to attach your object to hollow drywall. Unlike a joist, drywall is very fragile and has from lot of difficulty holding up heavy objects. So, to help it out, use ceiling anchors with hook attachments when connecting your object to drywall. Ceiling anchors have small wings that, when opened, redistribute the weight of your object, making it easier for the ceiling to hold.
- Even if you’re using a hanging attachment that can be drilled directly into the wood, clear the way first to prevent unnecessary cracking or fracturing.
Attach your object to the hanging hardware. Check that the hanging attachments are secure by gently tugging on them. Then, place each of your object’s hanging points onto the corresponding hanging attachment. Even though you’re hanging the item from a well-supported beam, make sure you or a friend holds the object firmly until it is completely attached.
