    Default Hanging wood grooming boxes

    My husband made us wooden grooming boxes for Christmas. I'd like to be able to hang them outside the stall when grooming, so I don't have to bend over.

    Any suggestions on what to use to hang them?

    Put in a couple of screw eyes at the right width, and then perhaps the hooks used for buckets, so you can take it off when you want to go places? Eg, http://www.smartpakequine.com/tack-hook-5231p

    you could attach a U channel to one side of the box and put this style clip on the door... the U channel would hang on the clips

    It would be difficult to find something that is not a danger when the box was not there, and still hold the box upright. Something similar to this would work; http://shoeboxdwelling.com/2013/09/17/slit-bike-hook/

    If it's your barn you could do what I did.
    Found cheap shelves at IKEA and hung them.
    My "grooming boxes" are actually baskets I found on sale that fit on the shelves and hold all the brushes, etc I need to groom.

    A french cleat is the way to go. Zero protruding parts on either box or wall, and quite secure. Well, it would be susceptible to being knocked upwards, such as a horse deciding to rub its head on it, but I can totally picture an easy fix for that.

    You can make one from wood, which would look nice, or just buy a picture hanger, available at any of the big box hardware stores.
    Try to break down crushing defeats into smaller, more manageable failures. It’s also helpful every now and then to stop, take stock of your situation, and really beat yourself up about it.The Onion
