Hall Signs’ hardware selection includes parts for basic sign-to-post installations, as well as specialty pieces for unique installations.
For a basic single-sign installation on a U-Channel Post we recommend using Zinc-Plated Steel Bolts and Nuts to attach the sign to the post; add a Nylon Washer between the bolt head and the sign face to protect the finish. If sign theft is a challenge, upgrade to our Vandal-Resistant options to protect your investment. Some pieces require special Installation Tools so be sure to check the product description and related items sections for recommendations.
We recommend 3/8” Drive Rivets for square post installations since they allow the sign to sit flush against the post. Our kits include nylon washers for a snug fit and can be installed using just a basic hammer. Aluminum Sleeve and Mandrel Rivets like our #18, #26 and #34 rivets, are typically used with u-channel posts but can also be used to tack the ends of Street Name Signs together for back-to-back installation on square posts. Corner Bolts and Flanged Jam Nuts are used to attach a square top post to an anchor for a basic breakaway installation.
Sign Savers are used to reinforce large signs at the bolt holes, but they can also be used to secure signs to chain link fencing with any bolt, nut and washer combination of your choice. Simply place the sign on one sign of the fence and a Sign Saver on the opposite side, then bolt through both the sign and sign saver and secure with a nylon washer.
