Here’s the good news! You no longer need to drill and damage the wall to fasten the Dyson docking station or backing plate to the wall.

Renter’s rejoice!

Rather, fasten the docking station or backing plate onto a 2×4 wood post built outside the wall. That will save having to find the stud in the wall!

The 2×4 Labrico Adjuster does the job of bracing the wood in a vertical position. Once it’s in place, it’s secure, no matter how many times you use your Dyson.

The 2×4 Labrico Adjuster lets you set up your cordless vacuum in the place of your choice.

If you want convenience, setup in the kitchen, living area or living space. That’s where most of the mess happens, right? Quick, grab your Dyson off the wall and vacuum the kid’s cereal off the floor!

Want your Dyson to tucked away out of sight? That’s possible too.

You can store your Dyson or cordless vacuum in a store room or entryway closet. Make sure the ceiling area is flat otherwise the 2×4 Labrico Adjuster won’t be sturdy.

Whether you set up your Dyson in full view or tucked away, the small footprint lets you choose your location. But remember, choose a location close to a power outlet!

With so many vacuum attachments, it’s best to have everything in one place. You got the crevice tool, the mini soft dusting brush, the combination tool and many others.

Solve the storage problem by attaching metal hooks, one for each attachment. Easily hang and store your space vacuum heads and smaller attachments all in one place. 

This DIY project rates as easy.

Some basic DIY knowledge is necessary like drilling pilot holes and fastening screws. Also, if it’s your first time, getting the 2×4 wood post vertical and in position will take a few goes.

Staining & Polishing the Wood

With a small amount of effort you can make your Dyson wall mount stand look part of your home.

The humble vacuum cleaner no longer needs to be stored away in the closet. Rather, people are locating their vacuums in the living room or kitchen because convenience matters.

It needs to look good and it needs to be functional.

  • Looks great - brings out character of the wood
  • Protects the wood from drying out
  • Like toothpaste, not water - very easy to apply with a clean cloth
  • One coat is enough
  • Dries quickly
  • Various stain colours to suit your other furniture

Staining timber posts brings out the character of each piece of cut timber, particularly when there are distinct timber knots.

The knots are the curves and bends in the wood grain that make timber the best material to work with for display. 

Applying a stain helps prolong the use of your wood post for years. It also protects the timber from cracking and drying. The stain I use is Briwax made from soft beeswax. Traditional stains can be watery and need several coats of sealer. This makes it time consuming and tricky to get the colour right.But Briwax feels like toothpaste making it easy to apply using a cloth. Often I use old cut up clothes. Also, one application of Briwax is enough!
Stained 2x4 wood using Briwax

Be mindful that Briwax does have a strong smell when you first start using it but fades as it dries. You will notice after a few hours there is a waxy feel to the wood which sinks into the wood over time.

Give the stained timber 1-2 hours to dry and I find one coat is enough to bring our the colour. That’s a great time saver!

My colour preference is Antique Mahogany to get that dark timeless furniture look.

Supplies needed to stain and polish the wood

  • Briwax staining and polish product
  • Gloves
  • Cloths for staining
  • Cloths for polishing
  • Sandpaper - fine & medium grit

Tips for staining and polishing

  • Use sandpaper to smooth the wood surface starting with a medium then a fine grit
  • After the stain dries, give the wood a light polish using a clean cloth
  • Stain all sides and ends of the timber post
  • A tin of Briwax goes a long way so store it properly for future use

This looks like a great option as I’m considering buying a stick vacuum but can’t drill holes in the wall. The difficulty I face is an architrave causing a slight curve from the wall to the ceiling. Following the instructions the 2×4 will be proud of the wall not flush with it with a fair chance of not being at a 90 degree angle to the floor or ceiling. Is there a workaround to deal with this?

Hi Roy,

The Labrico 2×4 Adjuster doesn’t need to be setup to ‘lean’ against the wall. Yes, it can be setup against a wall or in your case you can have it freestanding.

Hope this helps.

hi Martin,

love this idea for storing my stick vacuum! my problem is the sloped ceiling in our closet. not knowing anything about upper caps, do they accommodate sloped/slanted ceilings? if yes, would that affect the load-bearing capabilities of the timber? and if not, do you have any suggestions on how to best recreate this set-up with a sloped/slanted ceiling?

thanks!
Kay

Hi Kay,

A sloped/slanted ceiling is not going to work with the 2×4 brackets unfortunately.
For the upper bracket to be secure, a flat ceiling or flat upper surface is recommended.
