Advice for getting floor-ceiling, freestanding traps to stand flush against wall?

Hi

I made a couple of 4" thick (more like 5" inc. gap at the back), 7'x2' traps that are placed in the front corners of the studio.

Can you guys recommend good ways of making sure the traps sit flush across/along the corners, without risk of falling forward onto all the equipment?

Many thanks!

I would just lean then a bit. They should be fine that way. If not then you would need to attach them to the side walls.

Yeah, that's how i have them now. But i was just looking for something that looks a little better and more professional. I can't attach to the wall on one side anyway, as it's an uneven stone wall that i wouldn't want to 'damage'.

Many thanks

What about a small length or wire or chain to hooks in the ceiling?

If the stone wall has small flat surfaces, you could try Command strips and some thin wire attached to eye hooks behind the panels ( topend).

Command

Or make some feet for the panels. I have 2 portable corner traps w/ feet(2x8'). They are used in front of doors. Only 9" long and they went through some earthquakes (6 on the richter scale) we had this year with no problems.

Best would be to somehow attach the top to the wall. Wire, bracket, etc. Your installation situation would dictate.

Otherwise, use shims. I use shims under my bookshelves to make sure they are tight to the wall, or tip back toward the wall just slightly. Sometimes all it takes is a penny under the front corners. You may want proper wood shims or even larger chunks depending on the situation.
