hanging a dart board


i am trying to hang a dart board in my basement. it has a cabinet and board, in my basement there is a thin layer/sheet of a carboard material that inter locks with wach other,it is fairly soft and eaisy to punch through. it seems lieka igh density cardboard or something along those lines, then there are studs and cynderblock. i am not sure how i should go about mounting it cause the dard board is heavy,. i was thinking about putting in some masonry toggle bolts/ahchors and just putting it up that way, any suggestions????

Why do all that, we can paint circles on my wifes butt...
No, better not
seriouse, I would install it using toggle bolts that are long enough to penetrate the cinder blocks.

Hang it on a stud but be sure that there isn't any piping or electrical in nearby stud cavities. I found out the hard way that a dart will penetrate drywall and 3/4" copper pipe.

Make a 3' (square, round, octagonal, whatever you prefer) backboard out of 5/8" plywood, cover it with short-nap carpet, fasten it to the studs, fasten the cabinet and board to the backboard. Done deal!

Ayuh,.......... Great Idea..........

You could even cover it with that sticky backed Corkboard,......
That way the Darts will Stick,+ you won't have to pick them up off the Floor......

I used old ceiling tiles ( the kind that have the metal grid hangers) and screwed them to a section of wall about 5-6ft wide up to the ceiling and then painted them, hung the dart board and cabinet and now when my buddies come over and have a few and start throwing crazy I don't have to redo anything!

No I Am Using A Standard Masonry Bit. Also Is It Possible That The Cinder Block Is Solid With Wigther Mortar Or A Solid Cinder Block? And Also How Thick Is A Cinder Block

Could well be that its been filled with cement. Try some "Tapcons" or use the suggestion mentioned above by ratherbefishin'Make a 3' (square, round, octagonal, whatever you prefer) backboard out of 5/8" plywood, cover it with short-nap carpet, fasten it to the studs, fasten the cabinet and board to the backboard. Done deal!
