    I used these back East:

    I've been too nervous to hang them since I moved to San Fran because of the quakes. I'd rather it fall over, than drop 6 feet. Does Richmond get quakes?

    well we just had a remodel with all sorts of foundation engineering, so hopefully we aren't going anywhere. We are on the hayward fault though........

    That's my current solution in quake happy LA. Well that and spacing them far enough that they can swing without hitting one another.

    I made my own ... 8 of them cost less than $30 in materials, I used those large screw in hooks that are usually used for lawn tools in garages (I took the plastic covering off of them to save the nitro guitars); a scrap piece of oak railing that I cut to several short lengths; and surgical tubing for padding.

    To me, the best place for your axe is in it's case. But, if you must hang it on the wall, I support the Hercules wall hanger.

    +1 for string swing. The owners daugher was one of my best friends in college, it's a family business and they're all great people and make good hangers!

    I have a couple of the Hercules hangers in my studio here in the L.A. area. No problems with the earthquake today.

    Mine just held two guitars VERY well with no damgage through a 5.8 yesterday.. so I guess I can recommend the Hercules autolocking!

    I researched this a while back and the Hercules stood head & shoulders above the crowd. Freedom is correct -- you MUST get longer and thicker screws (easily obtained for just a few bucks). I also wrapped the yoke with some soft cotton terry material just to make sure there were no issues with the finish.
