Thanks Infinit01, I believe the limit for these are 5 lbs each. I was a little worried when I first started using them so I would hang the saber and come back and check it every fifteen minutes or so for the first few hours. I have never had a saber fall though and it grips the blade tightly so I’m very pleased with them.

My saber stand has finally arrived, and I am so thrilled!
It is a 4 tier acrylic stand from Ebay that had the option to customize the image and text on the bottom of the stand. We just put up the shelves, right next to the 5 panel Star Wars canvas. Now, all that is left is to get the LED lights that will go behind the sabers to provide a little extra light (these will have a remote control cuz I am short).

Thought I would share my display solution.  This is part of the Elfa Utility product line that is sold at the Container Store.  I think I bought 24" sections of the track railing and then you can snap in different attachments like the hooks or small tool holders.  I got the platinum color and looks good next to the hilts.   Very expandable too.  (It's basically the same concept as the 3M broom handle solution, but a lot sturdier since you can mount it into the studs.)  I can't remember what I paid for all the pieces but I think it was less than $50.

So in order to stop the spread of my sabers I'm the bedroom, my girl has graciously allowed me to put sabers in the living room. I like this as it fits perfectly under our TV and gives the stair step effect. I've chosen some of my best US to take this spot.

My husband and I came up with this. We needed something our 4 yr old wouldn't pull off the wall trying to get his saber free, but that was secure enough his bumping into thing wouldn't dislodge the sabers.

This is his
 

This is ours. It's still a work in progress. I'm going to add a layer of foam with some felt on top to cushion and protect the pomels and the woods paint job.

my idea, more for when you travel, for the motel/hotel room use two scrabble tile holder , flip them upside down so a V forms perfect to hold your sabers hilt while displaying it and the tile holder don't take any space in your luggage  I have kids and grandkids so having two or three scrabble games in the house is
 easy

So I have an idea...

I have a Dark Apprentice LE V5 saber, though my idea isn't saber specific. My saber has the belt clip option. I was thinking of maybe buying a 2nd belt clip, but removing the clip. Cutting it off and smoothing out the cut edge, of course. Then, with the now flat back, use some 3M tape on the back of it. I've used this 3M tape to hang many picture frames, without worry. They've been up for years. Does anyone know if it would be enough to hold a lightsaber though?

That's just 1 end though. I'm thinking of wall mounting my saber horizontally, under or above some pictures. The hilt end of the saber, if the above mentioned works, will be secured with the modified hilt 3M taped to the wall. For the saber end, I was wondering if other 3M products might work. They make various kinds of hooks. I've seen pictures of some holding backpacks and other items. My concern would be if the hook is large enough to allow the saber to rest in the hook. They make several kinds of hooks though and I'm unsure if any give the space dimensions for being within the hook... I hope I worded that right.

Honestly not expecting anyone to know the answer to this, but it was an idea I had while here at work, on my break.

Many thanks to my wife for allowing this in our home. I still want to add some more intricate stuff like old action figures some of you guys have done, but this makes for a nicely lit hallway...

Just to show you how they are mounted.

This is exactly what I want to do with mine! What are you using to support the blade though? I'm wanting to display mine horizontally, rather than at an angle. Currently have 1 saber, but plan to pick up a 2nd and display 1 above and 1 below some pictures I have up.

Here are mine.  I display them on wood panels painted in a color that I feel represents the character the saber is based on or the "mood" of the saber:

Archon 3.1 (Rust-oleum Universal Forged Hammered Burnished Amber – Based on Luke’s RotJ Cloak)
 

Guardian (Rust-oleum Universal Hammered Copper – Based on younger Obi-Wan’s cloak and red hair)
 

Dark Sentinel LE V4 (Rust-oleum Universal Forged Hammered Antique Silver – Sith-ish mood)
 

Consular (Rust-oleum Universal Hammered Brown – Based on Qui Gon's cloak and hair)
 

Frankensaber (Carbon fiber auto detailing tape with red trim – Major sith mood)
 

Captain America Themed Saber (Menace SE hilt) (Hand painted red, white, and blue inspired by WWII US military aircraft insignia)
       


I still have a Dominix V3 to do, and three of my wife's to do.  Plus, my wife has her own displays similar to mine for her Fulcrum/Lost Grey and Graflex.  Plus, I have three more sabers one the way to do.  I'll post all of those eventually.  But, I'm starting to run out of wall space in our offices.  May need to stop buying sabers...or get a bigger house.

I just finished this one for my wife's new Spectre.  I think it is my best one yet.  Matte Spanish Moss spray paint, some vinyl cutouts...  Simple, yet effective.
