Why Do Dartboards Weigh Different Amounts

The type of dartboard influences how much it weighs. Traditional bristle dartboards weight more than plastic electronic dartboards as the bristle style boards usually have a more-heavy duty frame.

Bristle dartboards usually weigh a similar amount when you don’t include the surround or cabinet, however more premium boards usually have slightly better rings and frames which mean they typically weigh a couple of pounds more.

The presence of a cabinet usually is responsible for adding the most weight as they can weigh 10-15 pounds on their own if you’re looking at something more heavy-duty, and they can weigh substantially more if you’re going for a luxury cabinet. Surrounds are a far better option compared to cabinets if you want to shave some weight, but they don’t give you a place to store your darts.

When it comes to electronic dartboards, the weight is usually dictated by the surround or cabinet. More expensive boards with larger and more well-built cabinets will typically weigh at least twice as much as entry-level electronic boards which don’t have a surround and have a section on the bottom which is used for the scoring.

Hanging a Dartboard

Dartboards are reasonably heavy, especially if they are housed in a cabinet so the safest option to hang one on the wall is by using a mounting kit. This involves screwing a bracket into the wall that the board can be hung on. However, some people aren’t a fan of putting screws in the wall so there is another alternative….

Can you hang a dartboard using command strips?

Large command strips have a weight capacity of 12 pounds and some dartboards which is a similar weight as most dartboards so you can use them to hang up the board. Make sure you check the weight of your dartboard does not exceed the weight capacity of your command strips before installing them.
