    Hello

    I have a number of radiator covers and I am looking for the best way to fix them to the wall. I want to make sure they are secure but may want to remove them occasionally to clean behind them, bleed the radiator etc. Can you help ??


    Thanks

    Matt

    How about a french cleats. Nice and simple, and no tools required to remove them, simply lift off.

    I used a right angle bracket , centered under the top facing down to clip behind the rad , for a more secure fixing the bracket can be positioned at the rear to screw to wall with a single fixing [depends on cover design].Or you could use keku fixings.

    I was thinking of the same thing, although I call it "split batten", which is what is used to mount paintings flush to the wall.
