Anchoring blast gates to the wall is a quick way to add function and reduce slop in the shop; and with these handy brackets, it's never been simpler. They attach in seconds to any standard 4'' metal or plastic blast gate, and feature easily accessible screw holes for fast wall-mounting. You'll prevent your hose from moving every time you open the gate, and eliminate stress on the fragile connections that hold everything together.

a neccesity
For my setup these were a necessity to anchor the gates and work very well, i used high quality flexible tubing for some of the longer runs and these made that setup possible.

What a neat accessory !
Blast gates hanging in mid-air are a pain to operate, as well as unprofessional. My installation used blast gates from another company, and they thankfully fit into these brackets. Really neatens-up the installation, as well as making it easier to use.

The blast gates make my dust collector work much more efficient. The brackets simplified the installation process and secured the gates for easy hose connections'

These are great
Just built a new shop which meant a new dust collection set up. Used these brackets for every gate. They are really great. I used to have to hold the hose or pipe to open/close the gate. Now they are held firmly in place and I don't worry about pulling anything loose. Most gates seem to have ridiculously short areas to clamp to, but these brackets really help hold everything together. Depending on your situation you may need to do something to have a way to fasten them, but it's worth finding a way.

Great item
I set up a dust collection system using 2 1/2" hose. I set a blast gate up for each piece of equipment. These are designed for 4" gates but are compatible to the 2 1/2". I would advise that you plan your system and mark your locations. Then install the blast gate mounts. That worked for me. I also used 4" standard hose clamps to secure the blast gate to the mount after I installed hoses.

When I setup the vaccum system...
When I setup the vaccum system in our adult village I bought the brackets to hold 4" blast gates and the worked just fine. I first mounted the bracket to 3/4" plywood block, installed the hose and screwed the bracket to the wall. Nice and solid, great product.

I have installed many blast gates....
I have installed many blast gates. The negative comments I read would likely have become positive if there were good installation instructions.Because the installation screw holes are inaccessable if the blast gate is in place, there are some easy options. If there is a flexable corner section near by, mark the correct locations of each section and then swivel the unit to one side and the other while installing the screws. Another alternative is to mark the exact location of the bracket with the ducts and blast gate sections in final setup, remove them and install the bracket. The entire unit can then be installed onto the bracket.Note, all of the blast gates I have installed are from Oneida. They all fit slightly snug, as they should.The last method for avoiding attaching ducts together with the blast gates piece by piece on location is to do as follows. Take the entire setup and put it together on your workbench. Using about a six by six inch scrap of one half or three quarter inch plywood or hardwood, fasten the bracket on the wood piece and then strap the blast gate in place along with the attached adjacent pieces. Lift the unit into place and fasten the wood backer to the wall as appropriate.When installing metal duct, disagreeing with a prior comment, it is well worth while to attach the duct itself using the brackets when near an elbow, joint or Y duct. The resulting attached unit becomes absolutely rigid and virtually eliminates metal fatigue. One of the dust collection systems I helped repair had become useless over a periond of years since the lack of regidity permitted metal fatigue in many elbows and joints.The only caveat. Use good screws and do not overtighten. Square drive pan head pocket hole screws are perfect. They are self drilling.

They seemed like a good alternative to securing the gate to the wall instead of using a makeshift strap that lets the piping slip down.

It appears to me that the blast gate is held to the bracket by slipping the clamp through the hole in the bracket. It seems to me that a small amount of air could leak trough that small space created at the hose/hose clamp/blast gate/ bracket junction point. Has anyone had any experience with these four items working together? The amount of leakage produced, if there is any, might be so small that it doesn't matter. I don't know because I've never had a dust collector before. signed, overthinking it as usual, Redding, Ct.
JAMES B on Nov 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Wow James, just wow. Nice that you are installing a dust collector and having equipment that makes enough dust to use one, but seriously.... hook it up and get to work; make some sawdust and something like woodworking to occupy your mind. This kind of thinking will lead to premature death, not any small amount of dust that finds it's way to your lungs. BTW, to answer your question, I have the holders installed, use them all the time, and the leakage, if any, is minimal at best. I make stuff for my grandchildren, myself, my wife, and the occasional commission, and never consider the consequences of a few stray particles of dust. Get to work!
Just to be clear, do these brackets fit both 2 1/2" and 4" blast gates?
Noah K on Feb 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No they're not a good fit for 2 1/2". Great for 4", but the radius you slide the clamp into is scaled for 4". Trying to use a 2 1/2" clamp makes it too short to hold the pipe. Using a 4" results in large gaps on either side of the hose meaning huge vacuum leaks. I wouldn't recommend this for 2 1/2" at all.
Will the see mount to a hollow wall or do they need to be attached to a stud? Thanks...Steve
Steve on Jan 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The blast gates are no different from any other item you attach to a wall. Normally the piping that attaches to them is stationary but if you have a portable hose attached to the one side that you move around then you might need them fastened to a stud. If the pipe or hose is in a fixed position then using normal drywall with the proper fasteners will work fine.
