Welcome to Collectible Hangers™ – a new way to display your hanging collectibles. Your hanging collectibles are just that, they are collectible products purchased in ‘hanging’ packages. This display system is a rail and track design that can handle all shapes and sizes of today’s blister packs, protector covers and clamshell packaging. While die-cast vehicles are the most common hanging collectible of this type, they are not the only ones. You can now find many different products from mini-skateboards, to airplanes, to star ships, to action figures. However, to introduce you to Collectible Hangers™, we will focus on die-cast vehicles. And you should quickly see that Collectible Hangers™ are…
“The secure and flexible way to display your hanging collectibles.”
The rail and track system allows you to configure your display for any width and height package to be placed on the display. Here is an example of a display with a partial view of the pieces involved. The top horizontal rail is mounted to the wall with the special rail clamps. The vertical tracks are mounted to the rail with special pins/plugs. The packages/vehicles are mounted to the tracks with a pin/plug per package. See Pricing or our Video.
The ‘Mustang Alley’ display shown here is a quick example of the flexibility of Collectible Hangers. This custom display is made of Mustang die-cast cars in an “M”-configuration. These are the standard (blister pack) size and type of die-cast card packaging. [Further below is a diagram of a “Typical (Blister Pack) Die-Cast Packaging” or “Card”]
As you read through the website, you will see how Collectible Hangers can be used with various hanging package sizes and types. Especially “Clamshell/Full Blister” die-cast packaging (shown here). For further information on packaging types see the Package “lingo” page.
Below you will find an example of a slot type display and how the identical cars would look with Collectible Hangers. By “slot type” display, we refer to the displays that hold a single type and size card, where the cards are inserted and slid down between ‘slots’ to rest on each other. Today’s cards come in multiple sizes and the cars are inside the plastic shell (or ‘Blister’) on the card which also vary in size. In other words, the cards are the same size, but the plastic shell holding the car on the card is not always uniform in shape or size, and most importantly is the height. (We talk further about this on the website and give more examples. see more shapes and sizes)
The displays below are designed to hold 120 cars/cards. These demonstrate how the slot type display cannot give you the finished product that Collectible Hangers allows. Because the plastic shells holding the cars/cards are of various heights (some examples outlined in red), as the cars/cards are set on top of each other, the end height of each row varies and is not even across the top of the display. One row actually can only have 14 cars/cards or it would be way too high for the display. The end row as well has 14 cars/cards because that is the total quantity of cars/cards in the set here.

With the Collectible Hangers display below, we can have each row end at the exact same point. The design of the Collectible Hangers system allows you to vary the placement of each car so you can achieve a uniform design. The end row as well has 14 cars/cards but can still have each one placed to present an even finish. Looking closely, you can see where some cars/cards are raised to allow for higher plastic shells and to build uniformity between all the rows. The end result is a very even display that is certainly pleasing to the eye. Again, a secure and flexible way to display your hanging collectibles!

Here is a custom display with 224 cars. We could have placed 304 cars in the same area, but the extra spacing between the blister packs was preferred. This is approximately 3 feet wide by 5 feet or so tall. Nice!
