I have some hardware that has screwholes but I want to mount it to the wall such that it can be easily removed. Is there some kind of adapter I can purchase such that it can be unclipped easily in the same manner as hardware that has 'keyhole' slots?

  • Can you be more specific on what you are trying to hang? How big are the holes in it? What's it made out of? How heavy is it? – JPhi1618 Feb 26 '19 at 22:07
  • I want to mount this to the inside of a cupboard, but I want to be able to unclip it easily so that I can move the cupboard without all the batteries falling out: amazon.co.uk/dp/B07H9YFBQK/ref=pe_3187911_189395841_TE_dp_1 – Oenotria Feb 26 '19 at 22:16
  • Can you provide pictures of the back of that battery holder? I didn’t see any pictures that helped me understand how anything would attach to it – UnhandledExcepSean Feb 26 '19 at 23:13

If the battery holder has enough room in the holes where the screws go, that you could drill another hole below it, but larger, that the screw head can pass through, then slide down, then yes. I bought one like that just about 2 weeks ago, and the holes were beneath the AA battery slots and centered in the slot. No way to extend the hole to make it moveable. But, you could mount it to a thin board or wooden paint stirrer, yardstick, wood ruler, etc. Then you can drill a small hole in the upper section, with a larger one below and cut a slot between them to slide the screw on to. I am not aware of any adapters, but easy to make your own.
