Give your Dyson a Home!

Now you can give your Dyson a place to “live” which is not on on the floor, learning on the wall or under the sofa. Being able to get quick access to the vacuum might have affected how much you used it.

Wall Mount Dyson Without Damage your Wall

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 means not having to damage your wall. You also don’t need to find the stud behind 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.

It's all about convenience!

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.

Keep all the vacuum attachments together

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 is an Easy Project - Give it a go!

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. 

Well that’s it! Enjoy building it, enjoy having your Dyson conveniently located in your living space or the closet!

1

Choose a location for your Dyson wall mount with a power outlet within reach.

Check the ceiling and floor are flat and stable.

Labrico flat ceiling ok, not sloped ceiling

2

Measure the ceiling height and minus 3.7 inches or 95 mm from the ceiling height.

Buy wood and supplies from a hardware store.

Tip: The hardware store can cut the wood for free or sometimes they charge a small fee per cut.

3

Timber posts can be stained or painted to suit
Stain and polish wood post. (Optional, but recommended) See staining tips and instructions below.

4

Measure 47 ¼” or 120cm from the bottom of the wood post. 

Mark the spot with a pencil.

5

With the docking station, align the lower screw hole over the mark. Mark the two screw holes. Drill pilot holes.

6

Place the docking station over the pilot holes.

Draw an outline around the square found underneath the 2 attachment holders.

7

Remove the docking station to show the outline.

Draw an ‘X’ to find the centre.

8

Use a ¾” paddle/spade drill bit to bore a hole through the timber. This is where the cord will feed through.

9

Push the tip of the charging cord (or jack plug) through the hole – from the back to the front of the wood post.

10

Pull the cord through.

11

Then make sure the charging cable is secured neatly to the back of the docking station. 

12

Pull the cord slack through the hole. 

Using pilot holes made earlier, fasten the docking station to the wood post using 1½” wood screws.

13

Put the upper cap and bottom cap on the wood post. The top cap has the adjusting screw (see below).

14

Lift the wood post into place. 

Double check the cord can reach a power outlet.

15

Check the wood post is vertical by using a spirit level.

Tip: for an online spirit level, download “Bubble Level” for free from the iphone app store.

16

Turn the adjusting screw clockwise to tighten.

Don’t over tighten.

Tip: Every few months, check the position of the wood post and tightness of the adjusting screw.

17

Easily store and hang Dyson vacuum cleaning head

Attach the hook for the spare vacuum head to the front of the wood post.

Measure 18” from the floor to the first screw hole on the hook. Then fasten.

18

Store the Dyson and attachments within reach

On the side of the wood post, attach hooks for the smaller vacuum attachments.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

Hello, I came across your product today and I am very interested. I love the design and the idea. Do you have a rough idea of the weight capacity of a single set? And would carpeting be an issue? I would love to use these throughout my apartment, but there is not much I can do about the carpet. Thank you so much!

Thanks for the feedback Jessica.

It makes it so easy to vacuum when you can find the attachments when you need them!

Greatest invention this bracket system. I was looking for ideas to mount my Dyson vacuum without damaging the walls since I rent. I saw all the different uses it had and gave it a try. Really happy with how it turned out after staining the wood. It’s sturdy, perfect for what I needed and accessorizes the room even.
