Default Wall pedestal mounting options

what are you guys using to hang your shoulder pedestal mounts on the wall? i've tried 2 different wall anchors that i've used for my regular shoulder mounts, but, the leverage point seems to be different on my pedestal mount.

Nail or screw into a stud works fine for me

My taxidermist made a mount out of angle iron that he gave me. He cut it at an angle that fits into a slot in the plywood on the back of the mount. Super solid.

Put a small finishing nail where the offside shoulder hits the wall to keep it from turning/sliding down

I use the "no-tilt" hangers on off balance wall peds.. The regular size is all that is needed for deer.

Maybe the hanger on the back of the mount is in the wrong position? I just use an anchored screw to hang mine on, same as a shoulder mount. As long as the hanger on the back of the mount is in the right spot to keep it balanced, it works fine.

That usually works but Depending on the manikin and the weight of the antlers some are just so out of balance that the hanger cannot be moved far enough over to allow for the mount to be balanced..

Finishing Nail. All of mine have that when it comes from Taxidermist. Works great on sheetrock but I have to cut it down on wood wall.

I use these. Allows you to hang on a stud, but also move it left or right to fill open space where there is no stud.

I have two wall pedestals and I'm fixing to pick up two more. Just a screw in a stud or a heavy duty wall anchor works great for me.

This is my wall pedestal mount that hangs fine with a normal screw and anchor. I think if the insert on the mount is too low it will try to rotate on you
