    Any ideas on how to hang a canoe paddle horizontally for display and are there commercially available hangers for those not handy enough to make their own? Let’s not get distracted discussing the wisdom of hanging them horizontally. Thanks.

    I personally use these. Can bend them anyway you want. Haven't had one fall yet!

    I boiled a popsicle stick and formed it over the shaft. Painted Adel clamps would work also.

    OK. but what holds the blade end and keeps it from rotating?

    If either the Adel Clamp, or Fred's Popsicle Stick, were tight enough, that would stop the rotation. Also, the flat blade against the wall itself would stop rotation.

    OK. Obviously I can make my own hangers but my sister came up with her own solution and saved me from having to send her some. Maybe even more elegant than my solution. Not much hanger showed on the blade

    The paddles are not horizontal but the blades are held by articulated hooks that conform to any blade shape.

    I use monofilament suspended from above. I have about a dozen throughout the house and have never had one fail or drop
