Helping Hand Hangers were developed for the taxidermist by a taxidermist. Working alone, as many taxidermist do, you likely find yourself in need of an extra pair of hands to assist in securing mounts to the stand for finish work. Instead of fumbling around with a screw gun in one hand, the mount in the other, simply install the hanger on the mannikin from the beginning and slip it on or off the mounting plate as needed. This hanger not only saves time, it is also a secure finishing hanger that your customers can appreciate. Use it with the wall bracket for extra durability when hanging large game heads (i.e. elk, moose, bear, and more...). The combination of the mount hanger and the wall bracket has been "field tested" at over 240 lbs! Watch the video demonstration... Whether your an experienced taxidermist, or a beginner, the Helping Hand Hanger will make the mounting process that much easier. What about the hunter? Secure your trophy mount with strength you can depend on. Upgrade your hanger today. Specifications - Made of .060 inch steel with rust proof, clear galvanized coating. 1/4 inch offset for a quick fasten to mounting plate. Used by itself, or with wall bracket for extra support. View Video Demonstration


Hanger Kits:

kitsRegular Kit - This kit includes all items needed for hanging (1) mount. If the mount needs more spacing between it and the wall surface, you may want the offset version. Kit Includes: (1) Helping Hand Hanger - (1) Regular Wall Bracket - (2) Small Rubber Bumbers



Offset Kit - Also includes the items needed for (1) mount, but allows for a 1" space between the mount and the wall surface. Animals with thick fur/hair may need this. For taxidermists in particular, this is great to allow air flow when mounting/drying. Kit Includes: (1) Helping Hand Hanger - (1) Offset Wall Bracket - (2) Large Rubber Bumbers.






Wall Brackets:

bracket stillRegular Brackets - While the hangers themselves work great with small to medium-sized game (up to whitetail shoulder mounts), there is need for extra strength when securing your large game trophies. Elk, moose, bear, and other large game mounts can be secured with confidence using wall brackets. These custom designed taxidermy wall brackets are made to hold any mount using the Helping Hand Hanger! Attach the wall bracket using 2 multi-purpose or wood screws directly into a stud for maximum stability. The combination of the mount hanger and the wall bracket has been "field tested" at over 240 lbs! Watch the video demonstration... Whether your an experienced taxidermist, or a beginner, the Helping Hand Hanger will make the mounting process that much easier. Upgrade your hanger today. Specifications: 1/4 inch steel cut specifically to hold Helping Hand Hangers. Tested at over 240 pounds. Black, rust-resistant coating, also available in a 1 inch offset


1" Offset Brackets - Some taxidermists prefer to have a small gap between their mount and the wall. In humid areas, the air flow helps to avoid mold. This offset allows for natural hair flow, especially for game like moose and caribou. Now you have the option to have your taxidermy wall brackets made with a 1 inch offset. When using an offset we recommended also using specially designed offset bumpers. Specifications: - 1/4 inch steel hanging plate, Offset channel: 3/4 inch carbon steel with black, rust-resistant coating. Custom offsets are possible. Please contact us for more information.

STOP-ROT was developed by Whitetail Designer Systems as a "helping hand" to taxidermists. STOP-ROT extends the work time of a fresh hide by slowing down or stopping decompositions. Once the STOP-ROT has been properly applied, the skin will air dry before it will rot. That gives you all the time you need to flesh, turn ears, and split lips. STOP-ROT is non-volatile, and "It just doesn't get any easier to use." It was developed as an aid in preventing hair and epidermal slip. A lot of skins and capes that would normally be trashed can be saved with STOP-ROT. Not only has it been stopping epidermal and hair slips, it has also been improving efficiency of acids in the acid/saline solution (pickle). It keeps the slimy membrane from "sliming-up", making it easier to shave off, and allows faster and deeper penatration of acids.
