I could've gone to the hardware store and got chains and bolts, but the price made it convenient to order with the plates. Perfect setup for a swing iij ng plate target
This made it easy to set up my target .
Performs as advertised
No directions came with how to mount the kit with the GONG, however when I accidently passed the computer cursor over the image of the GONG it showed me how to hook it up!
This mounting kit is a must!!! I added seven new ar500 1/2" gongs ( purchased from shootingtargets7.com ) to my rifle range. These mounting kits made it a snap. We like how it angles the targets and everything but the hook or eye bolt is included. The 12" chain length was perfect for us. I will be ordering all my future targets with these mounting kits.
These are great for the getting your target up as soon as you open the box; and it ships free if ordered with the target. Cost is similar to going to your local or other hardware store and purchasing the products individually; but the best part is you don't have to drive to the store, wait on the attendant to cut the chain or pick through the nuts and bolts bins praying some kid did not mix a metric bolt in there for fun.
This mounting equipment is definitely worth the buy but i'm running into 2 problems when using larger calibers: 1. Each shot will vibrate the locking nuts loose. 2. The carriage bolts flex under the stress which could lock them permanently inside the target. Don't get me wrong this is the best and safest method i've seen so far for mounting gongs and like targets but having to constantly re-secure the locking screws and bolts is kind of annoying. ### MARK'S NOTE as of 05/2014 all mounting kits now include nylock nuts ###
Easy to use... very good quality material good price Shipping was FAST
I found it easier to order these than to experiment getting the right parts at the store. They place the targets at the correct angle which is important. The quality is good, shipping great, and price very fair. The only thing I changed was to replace the 2 end nuts to lock nuts so I could be assured they would not loosen, although this may not really be needed. I would recommend this mounting kit. #Marks note, "Gary we heard you, all mounting kits now come with Nylock nuts"
This is great for mounting targets - the approach with the bolts to cant a target is SMART - I have used this idea on other steel I have from other places as well. FOr what you get in this kit it's a little "expensive" - but - it's also very convenient... you open the box, take this kit and the target and yo uare good to go. Sometimes the price premium is worth the convenience... in this case - I'd recommend the kit!
after you walk 3-400 yards again because your cheap chain, rope, wire or whatever broke again you will understand the value of 9 bucks worth of quality hardware
I have purchased multiple sizes of the 3/16" and 3/8" gongs and am happy with the product. It does make the target experience more exciting than just paper. I have made paint stencils to put a "bulls eye" on them and that increases the fun. The mounting chains kit ensures the correct angle for bullet deflection. I am satisfied with the product and service. The chain kit has been improved and is easy to install on the gongs. The only problem is that I hit the front end of one bolt and then it was history, I replaced it and all is back in order.
Love these things!
Great idea to safely hang the gongs! If you haven't shot steel before, buy this kit. It allows the gong to hang at a slight angle, deflecting bullets downward. If you shoot steel straight on, you can be hit by a ricocheting bullet. I bought only one set for two targets and wish I'd have bought two!
Works as described, fast shipping overall would highly recommend
The mounting kits offer a convenient way to mount the gongs at the proper angle with little effort. Well worth the money. My only complaint was that a round of 6.5 hit the link attached to the plate and broke it. The odds of that?? Otherwise, great product.
I thought of buying the mounting hardware all at my local hardware store, but these have the convenience factor. It took no time at all to place the order, vs making a trip to the local store to procure the bits to hang the targets. When I buy more targets, I'll buy more of these too. My time is valuable, Mark ships quickly, threw in a free 3" target with my order (likely depends on what you order?) and saved me time. Perfect.
The mounting kit keeps the deflection angle down and into the berm, which is required at my range. They started adding lock nuts to the mounting kit, at least the last one I just got had them. That makes the setup perfect. Now If I could just stop shooting the chain.
Definitely worth buying instead go making, high quality and super convenient.
I bought one of each size (except 16") and they all fit and shipped in one box. The arrived in just a couple days and they are of great quality. I like the design of the mounting kit since it tilts the targets down and adds extra safety while shooting steel. The 10" bullseye came with it's own mounting and I use that. Honestly though, I haven't used the other mounting kits I bought. They are good design and value, but I'm lazy and I just use one of the target mounting holes to hang them on a shepard's hook / plant hanger. Fast and simple, but doesn't provide the downward angle that these mounting kits do. I highly recommend you put down the paper and pick up some steel!
Ordered because of convenience of everything needed was in one package. I was very surprised at the quality of the chain. Heavy duty. Haven't hit it yet, but I suspect it will hold up to 9mm fire. Will order again. Timely shipping but package was beat up and partially opened, due to heavy target purchased at same time.
I ordered extra hardware just in case. Installation is simple and the price is better than sorting through your hardware store bins to find the best nuts, bulys and washers. These folks know their products. Buy the installation kits. It's worth it! PS - I used 3/8" eye bolts through the 2x4 and 3/8" spring hooks to quickly attach the chains on my steel. Makes for quick assembly and target changes.
This mounting kit is very nice. you definitely know when you hit the target cause it bounces pretty good. Also target can ring freely.
I ordered 4 of the mounting kits to go with four gongs that I ordered (4,8,10 and 12" gongs). The mounting kits work great and are designed for easy installation. It took only minutes to assemble the four mounting kits and attach them to the gongs that I purchased. I mounted all four gongs and mounting kits to a 2 X 4 - 8ft long, and then hung the set in two fence posts designed for fence rails. Looks and functions great. Hanging kits work excellent and present the targets at just the right angle. Shipping from ShootingTargets7 was extremely fast, took only like 3 days max to get to NC. I would definitely recommend these mounting kits to someone interested in setting up a shooting range, and believe it was much easier and cheaper than going to a hardware store to purchase the parts. I would also highly recommend purchasing them from ShootingTargets7.
This is probably the most hassle-free solution of hanging your steel targets. You can be "up and shooting" in 10 minutes or less with these kits. Sure you could get the components from a hardware store but by the time you factored in your time and gas I doubt you are much cheaper off. One suggestion, the single hole 3" target hanging from a single chain will not always present itself square to the shooter. This is easliy resolved by using 2 foot worth of chain and hang it from two attachment points. Doesn't require rocket science but a separate mounting kit would be nice? -Marks note, using the two chains of a mounting kit in the single hole works well for squaring the target up. I'll add a picture on the site of what I am talking about.
I purchased this along with the IPSC Torso because of the cheap price and convenience of having it without running to the store to make my own. Works great. Sets the plate at a slight angle to help with impact and round deflection. Can't beat the price. Shipped fast, along with the plate
For us, the value of this kit is in the idea of using standard hardware to hang a steel target in such a way as to get a permanent tilt downward. Very valuable. I like to tell students that bleeding from splatter is part of the training. Right. Some of them even act as if they believe me. As to the kit itself, and again I say "for us," the chains are too short. Furthermore, it is easy to purchase the nuts, bolts, and various washers from any decent hardware store and keep them in stock. Get high quality bolts (note code on head of bolt) or they will break in a very short time. For many people the kit would be convenient, however. This outfit is outstanding in quality of goods and services. Outstanding.
Same quality as the competition for less money out of your pocket.
The mounting kit was easy to install and perfectly secure. For holding the plates, I use 'The Last Stand' frame (made from inexpensive & durable rebar).
Simple but does the job and is built to last. I slightly altered the forward lean, but I understand the safety involved. Heavily built to last and still function as advertised. If there isn't one already designed the next thing is to make a stand to hang multiple gongs of various sizes. I put "S" hooks on the open end of my mounting chains to make it easy to hang them up on various types of stands. A piece of chain link fencing stretched across a wooden frame stand works good for me and the "S" hooks make it fast to mount the gongs.
Excellent quality. Easy to setup. Great design! Mark is very responsive!
Great design. These not only hold the targets at the proper angle for safety, but should I need a part just go to the hardware store.
Kit worked just fine and saved me from making a trip to the hardware store. Heavy duty Thanks
great product and a great price. buying all the parts at a big box store costs about the same as the delivered kit!. instructions easy to follow. downward angle of plates has to be safer.
You'll regret not getting the hanger kit with your gong! The kit has everything you need to get started shooting right away. This kit will allow your gongs to hang at a slightly downward angle that deflects rounds into the ground, safety first! I gave a 4star rating for quality because I have had one bolt head separate from bolt shaft(not direct hit on bolt).
Good quality chain, bolts, washers and lock nuts. All worked well and saved piecing together at the hardware. 2 thumbs up
If you are ordering a gong target from here, you might as well throw in this set to save yourself the time and effort of getting the same thing at the local hardware store. The gong hangs at a nice down-facing angle if the bolts and nuts are installed according to included instructions.
I have tried many ways to mount metal targets and this is by far the best, most cost effective way to go. Save your money and use this system first.
The mounting kit is as cheap as piecing it together at the hardware store without have to take the time to make a trip. I bought one kit for two targets and pieced one together. From now on I am just buying the kit.
I bought one mounting kit with two targets and then went to the store to duplicate the kit. Guess what? The kit is cheaper or as cheap as piecing it together at the store with out having to make a trip. From now on I'm just buying the kit.
Shipping was very fast, and the mounting option is very well thought out with the angling and the locking nuts. I bought a few kits for my targets and I've broken 3 chains so far - not an issue with the product because no chain will hold up to rifle rounds, and we shoot high volume AK/AR fire while alternating targets so chains get hit fairly often. The only improvement I would recommend is a grade 8 bolt with a hex head instead of the anchor head, or maybe add a grade 8 washer behind the anchor head for more support around the target hole. I had an AK round hit one of the anchor heads at 100 yards and it blew half the head off. The current setup is a GREAT value, but I would be willing to pay a couple extra dollars for grade 8 bolts in the kit. I've hit grade 8 hex heads with .308 several times and so far none have failed. Overall, excellent product here though. Maybe a grade 8 option could be added at a higher price.
The chain is cut on the right length. I got a free gong and had to buy a separate mounting kit from Home Depot. It was a time consuming to ask someone to cut the chain and look for the bolts and screws. With the discounted price, the cost is almost the same. I'll just order them next time from shooting targets7.
I priced-out buying the parts for the mounting kit at Lowe's. It is cheaper and saves time to buy the mounting kits Mark offers. Don't waste time cutting your own chain. These are plug-n-play.
not the best marksman good thing I got extra chains. so easy to set up my 6yr old did one side while I did the other. will be getting more just for backup. thanks ST7!
Very easy install. Took very little time to set up my target.
Saw some videos on Youtube on AR500 targets from ShootingTargets7.com. It convince me to get some. It came very fast and can't wait to use it. I am sure that we will have a blast using these steel targets compared to the paper targets we were using. I will post an update once I get a chance to use them.
Easy set up. My kids were able to set this up.
I have tried many different ways to mount my gongs, but have always been disappointed. This ingenious method works the best long term. Quality, quality, quality!
Would highly recommend ordering the Mounting Kit along with plates. Everything required to setup the plates is included. Was at the range using my plates within two hours of receipt, without having to measure, and have chains cut.
It would be hard to go to the hardware store and pick up each piece this cheep.
I THOUGHT I had the hardware around the shop, but had to buy some. So for the second target, I bought the kit, and it's a much more convenient way to go.
This is a must. Makes set up easy. So much part of the target they should just automatically come with every gong purchased.
Besides the fact that it would cost just about as much to make your own chain mount (heavy guage chain is expensive, 3+ bucks a foot) these are well designed to deflect most of the splatter downwards. This makes it safe to shoot from close distance. Without the angle created by the bolt design, one would have to stand back a lot further. This added layer of safety for running and gunning allows you to really walk in on the targets.
Unless you're a big time DYI-er, I suggest purchasing the kit with your target selection. It gave me peace of mind knowing I had everything I needed to hang and shoot safely.
It's very handy to get these kits, so you don't have to cut chains, and the price is close to what you'd pay running to the hardware store and buying everything on your own. I'd say this is a good value, considering the convenience it offers.
When I originally ordered my gong targets, I didn't order theses hanger kits. I thought "heck I can do it cheaper." I set out to the hardware store, and guess what. I couldn't do it. By the time I purchased the pieces of chain, the bolts, the nuts, and the washers, it would cost more money. Even with cheaper, lighter chain! This system is well engineered. The tilt it provides directs splatter down to the ground. I highly recommend this kit for every gong you order.
I have only been able to use these once with .22 LR and 9mm but they held up great and gave a nice sound and movement. I used metal shepherd hooks to hang mine on and mounting them was straightforward. The angle is perfect to deflect any potential ricocheting.
Every thing you need to hang your gong in a economical kit , filled with highly durable hardware.
Highest quality chain, great design, and simple diagram instructions for use. Service is top notch!
I am especially pleased with the way the target reflexג€™s the round down, very safe, and I have no concerns with any of my five children firing rounds at these targets. This is a result of the Mounting Kit and how the targets hang. JJF
Save time and $$ get these for each target. Pickup some chain quick links for fast link repair on range days.
Mount kits work great and are definitely worth the money. I suggest stopped by your hardware store and buying some spare bolts nuts and washers to keep with you while shooting. I had the bad luck of shooting one of the bolts off with a 5.56 round from 50 yards and had to quit early until I got more parts. By the way, zip ties work great for fixing chain links if you get the large ones. Considering you are shooting bullets at these targets, things will inevitably break ;)
I learned the hard way on my first use that it is a good idea to have a couple repair links with you. One shot to the chain with a .223 blew a link out.
Quick shipment and good price. Assembly is quick and easy without having to go to hardware store multiple times. Good product.
I bought one kit to try it out. Overall the cost was decent as to buy the individual parts to make a kit would likely run more than the kit costs. I found that the directions for mounting the targets with the kits resulted in the targets (especially the small ones like 3" and 4") hanging with far too much slant. This is not such an issue with the bigger, heavier targets. I put the kit together in the following sequence and it gave the target less angle. 1. bolt through the target 2. lock washer 3. hex nut 4. flat washer 5. chain 6. flat washer 7. nylok nut
I bought a couple other steel products here & I liked the mounting kit used so I ordered an extra kit to attach to a spare 6" gong I had at the house. Thickness of the chain is great & I like the slight angle it holds the gong at. For only $8 it beat going to the local hardware store and piecing a similar kit together or going cheap on some lighter chain only to have it shot off...hence why I needed new mounting hardware!
Forget paper. No more checking with a scope to see if you hit the target. The "gong" says it all! Have been shooting the paint off using .223 and 7.65x39 from 100 yds. There have been no dings or dents. Will buy more as soon as I make the my range larger.
Easy to set up.
Save yourself time and headaches, buy these when ordering gongs. With these mount kits you can hang your gongs easily and safely. When mounted as directions describe, your gongs will have a slight downward angle that deflects your rounds into the ground for safe shooting.
I ordered this so I would have an extra chain. High quality and fast shipping and of course great price!
These are great kits for mounting these targets. They make the targets hang at the proper angle to prevent ricochets. You can't put these kits together much cheaper that this, I checked! Get a few extra kits and and a chain repair kit, I'm sure you will need it eventually. I added one to many different size plates I own, now all I have to do is change them out to a smaller size for more of a challenge!
I have ordered a total of 6 gongs, and the chains for each one. Once you figure out how to attach the first one, the rest go on quickly. The chains set the gongs at the correct angle and are easy to hang.
I ordered some chain sets for just under $8 each, can get parts at Menards for about $7 per set, but then I have to cut the chain to length and buy all the nuts and washers. I'll order the kit from now on, cant beat the price..
Easy and complete one stop shop for mounting steel. Like the quality and appreciated the mounting hints enclosed to get a bit of an angle when hung. Like others have said, beats going to hardware store and piecing one together.
I got the hardware and glad I did. It saved the time and the cost was a wash.
I purchased 9 targets , 4 - 10" bullseye, 3- 12" gong, 8" gong and a bullseye torso all in 3/8". I can't even begin to tell you haw pleased I was with how quickly they arrive and the quality workmanship. Even the chain mounting kits are high quality and a breeze to set up. I have probably put close to a thousand rounds at them in the short time I have had them and they are incredible. The instant feedback you get from a hit is awesome plus the bulleye steps things up a notch. They still look like new, I simply keep a can of black spray paint with me and when done shooting and critiquing I spray them over and they are like new again. I will definitely be a return customer. They are the best bang for your buck.
While these kits contain good hardware and work well to a point, my kits lacked hardware to mount the chains to the 2x4. After buying these kits, I was surprised I still had to go to the store and buy additional hardware to mount the target chains to the 2x4 of the stand. Marks Note### The issue with that that only a small percentage of folks who buy mounting kits also buy our stands. Some folks make their own stands from steel or prefer to use shepherds hooks, carabiners or even eye hooks to attach the chains to their stands. We sell thousands of mounting kits every month and I'd rather not change everyone for for hardware only a small percentage would need or use. I will look into figuring something out for those who buy our stands as well as mounting kits. Thanks for your review.
The only complaint is there are only 2 carriage bolts. Other than that the chain and fasteners worked just as they needed to.
This mounting kit works great and puts a downward angle on the targets which I consider a must for safety especially when shooting 15 - 20 yards with pistols. Upon examination of the deflections after appx 500 rounds the furthest deflection appears to be within 5 - 6 feet of the targets. My only thought on improvement is chains could be 3 or 4 inches longer.

I purchased a couple of these kits for the individual gongs I ordered and was extremely pleased to find the hardware to be of really high quality. I don't think you could save any money trying to piece these together yourself at one of the big-box stores. They come with very clear instructions (with pictures) and they set the gongs up at the perfect angle to make sure all the splatter is directed downward. VERY VERY happy with this purchase!
Easy to install. Perfect match for the steel targets. Puts a slight downward angle on the target once it is mounted using this system which is perfect. Well worth the money plus it saves time running to the hardware store. I ordered these with my targets and I was ringing steel in no time at all. Everything you need is included...even a nice set of instructions with photos of how to mount the targets.
This kit contains everything needed to hang the steel with the correct angle to send the bullet into the ground. Sure, you can buy all the same stuff at a hardware store, but why bother? Price would end up close to the same and if you're like me, you'd forget something and have to make a return trip. Very convenient!
Bought these with the two gongs I bought so I would have everything I needed in one box. Does what it is supposed to do.
I purchased two 6" gongs and mounting hardware on Dec 22 with standard shipping. You guys did an extraordinary job of getting stuff out the door and I received the shipment on the 24th. Totally unexpected but very much appreciated. Christmas Day and several days afterward, I and my four kids gave the gongs a workout. Unfortunately the mounting chains took a couple of hits with either 9mm or 40 rounds. It is only unfortunate because that indicates a less than outstanding shot as the chains barely looked to have been hit. The gongs and mounting hardware worked as planned with a nice scattering of flattened bullets directly beneath the gong. The gongs were barely scuffed. I wish everyone delivered an excellent product at a great price in a timely manner as you have. You definitely have earned my repeat business and recommendation to anyone who desires a product you produce. Thank you.
This kit hangs your targets at the perfect angle for deflection. Don't bother trying to piece this together at a hardware store. Quality parts, simple to use , clear instructions , it's a winner !!! You can't beat the price , Bought 7 of these , one for each target. You won't be disappointed.
OK Look........sure you can go to the hardware store and pull some chain out of the bucket and cut it and do it again or call the guy to cut it because of insurance and then you can walk over to the bucket of bolts and hopefully find all the matching parts and washers you need and maybe save yourself a couple bucks........no.......sorry......not me.......this little idiot proof packet has all you need in one spot. Convenient! Quick! Shipped right to your door! and you dont have to look at anyone at the hardware store! Thanks!
Initially I did not buy the chains and tried to suspend the targets with rope. Needless to say, the ropes shredded and broke from the shrapnel and impact on the first outing. I purchased the mounting kits and they were delivered within two days! The chains are thick and sturdy at a reasonable price. Maybe you could save a couple of dollars by purchasing all the parts yourself at a hardware store, but I doubt the time and effort would be worth the savings. Outstanding product and company. I highly recommend their products.
everything was included in the box...chains and bolts. shipping was fast
A must! Much easier to order here, helps to get target to hang at a slight angle! Bought a set for 3 gongs and a spare set incase one gets shot and breaks. Makes mounting gongs fast and easy!
This product pairs perfectly with the gongs. Positions it to aim the bullet fragments at the ground upon impact. Great design.
Great product and fast shipping. Very easy way to hang targets, No looking for more parts to get job done.
Really good price and saves the hassle of assembling the parts and cutting the chains. Well worth it to me.
I bought some chain and quick links from the hardware store and used the quick links to mount these and my targets. Works great and with the quick links it's easy to move the targets whenever you want to.
Works and cheap but quality product.
Trust me when I say this, when I first thought about buying this mounting hardware kit I said to myself "I bet I can buy this hardware at Home Depot for much less". Well guess what???I was wrong. This mounting hardware kit will cost you more at a Hardware store unless you skip certain pieces and then your AR500 targets will not be mounted properly. Just hooking up some chains to bolts will not do the job since you need to mount the targets with a little angle in mind to keep the rounds deflecting properly. I have other AR550 targets that are on Stands with no angle mounting and those targets, even though they are made of much harder steel, are showing way more wear than my AR500 targets that are swinging/mounted at a angle. These mounting kits are exactly the way these targets need to be mounted and thus trying to be cheep will only render your targets useless way sooner!!!
This kit comes with everything you need, including fool-proof photo instructions. I was hesitant at first to buy this kit because I figured I could find everything I needed at a hardware store. I decided to just give in to the convenience of buying this kit and I don't regret that decision at all. The pieces are all high quality and durable. After a day of shooting the gong this kit was holding, I noticed that one of the carriage bolts had been hit, but there was never any change in the integrity of this kit. Strong, quick, easy, and convenient; a must buy.
I did not want to hassle with having to go out and buy bolts, nuts, washers, and chain. So every time I order targets I usually throw in a chain mounting kit so I can set up and be shooting. I am very pleased with the mounting kit both price and quality.
Simple, strong and easily worth the $$.
saved me some time, from going to the hardware store to buy it
I'll continue to do business with Shooting Targets 7. Great targets and great service. Every time.
