I am trying to mount hooks onto my walls to hang a crossbar for a photography backdrop roll. The backdrops are 86 inches.
However below there is a shelf that slighty jets into the area where the backdrop would be once it is hanging down. It jets into that space by like a quarter of an inch. So I only have around 85.5 or 85.75 of the desired 86 inches to work with. How do I extend the stud by half an inch (so the backdrop mount wont be in the stud directly but still supported by it) without mounting a separate piece wood?
A mounting plate is ok, just looking for something small and inconspicuous. I am trying to keep it clean looking. Its only half an inch at most. Any help is appreciated.
