how to non-permanet attach foam

I have a bunch of Auralex LENRD corner bass traps that I would like to non-permanently mount to my corners.

Also from what I have read they will be more effective if they are somehow spaced away from the wall. Any easy tips for achieving this?


I am temporarily putting these in the corners until I get ready acoustics panels to put up. Once those arrive I will be using these bass traps to above and below the Ready Acoustics traps OR I will put them in the corner between my ceiling and the tops of walls.

Either way I need a non permanent way to mount these that won't damage the walls. Are T-Pins my best option?

thanks!

Not sure on that one, I don't often work with foam. As far as I know the manufacturer recommends gluing them to the wall. I'd check with them, they should have better ideas for you.

Before I bought my house and was in a rental, I had the same issue. I used T-pins and they worked well, but I don't know if they make them long enough to accommodate spacing a LENRD off the wall.

When you take them down, you may just have to touch up some pin holes with a small paintbrush. No big deal.

I used the Auralex Temp Tabs when I recently had foam up in a temporary room for about 5 months. Little Velcro discs that attach to the wall and a small plastic plate that gets glued to the foam. Gluing the little plates was a pain, and it didn't stick/dry as quickly as I'd been anticipating, but ultimately the foam stayed up, and when I took it down, the velcro discs came off the wall without taking paint with them, so I was fairly satisfied with this solution.
