Wall Mounting Buttons
The items pictured below show the easiest (and cheapest) way to mount a classroom map. Simply screw these two steel "buttons" on to the wall and the backboard on your map will comfortably slide over them. The concept of a backboard is explained on our page called How to mount a classroom map. .As you can see, these are sold as a pair so they can be mounted on the wall at any spacing. They are shown below with a ruler to give you a sense of scale. Probably the ideal spacing is 16 or 32 inches so they can be mounted on wall studs. The wider the map the bigger the spacing.
