After 10 years of creating innovative storage solutions, we're now revolutionizing how you store and display your sports equipment! Here's how our baseball bat mounts came to be and how we created more by popular demand!

WHY DID WE MAKEit?

The bigger question is "why is a tech and gaming mount company now making sports mounts?" Well, consider this: how much sports gear graces your garage floor? If you're like us, then the answer is lots! Being athletes ourselves, we know the struggle of sports gear organization. With very few options on the market, there was an obvious need for an innovative, high quality solution - and, that's what we do! 

“As the mom of three boys, HIDEit SPORTS just made sense. We set out to solve simple problems like mounting helmets, baseball bats, and other sports equipment that can be hard to organize.” ~ Relina Shirley, Co-Founder and CEO of HIDEit Mounts.

 HOW DID WE MAKEit?

First, we wanted to ensure the mounts would be durable and versatile to accommodate all levels of baseball and softball athletes. We started the design process by testing baseball and softball bats with different diameter handles. Through multiple designs and rigorous testing, we found the perfect diameter that accommodates bat sizes from T-Ball all the way up to Axe Bats.

AND THEN WE MADE MORE!

“Over the last ten years, our business has grown by listening to our clients' requests and providing affordable, innovative storage solutions - our horizontal baseball bat mount is a result of just that.” ~ Chuck Shirley, Co-Founder and COO.

Since the initial launch of our Single, Triple and 8Bat Mounts, we received overwhelmingly positive feedback from customers who were eager to know if additional baseball bat mount solutions were on the way. Well, they didn’t have to wait long! We launched the white variation of our vertical baseball bat mount, as well as our newest bat mount - the HIDEit HBat Mount.

The Horizontal Bat Mount was actually in design long before the Vertical Bat Mount. The challenge was creating a multi-piece design that provided the option to mount the bat barrel left or right. However, with brand logos being printed on all bats the same way, we were able to scratch this concept and go back to the drawing board.

We went through multiple design iterations and rigorously tested each one (the poor walls in our office!) before creating a truly unique, single-piece design that is small and discrete when mounted.

WHAT MAKES THESE MOUNTS SPECIAL?

Our powder-coated steel baseball bat mounts resist rust, giving sports enthusiasts the option to mount indoor and outdoor, on the wall in a garage, in the home, or in a dugout. The ribbed design adds additional strength making grab n’ go accessibility sturdy and reliable.

The HIDEit Horizontal Baseball Bat Mount is the first single-piece horizontal baseball bat wall mount on the market today! Plus, these mounts are easy to install and store adult or youth bats in place without slipping. We also added rubber caps to our HBat Mount to make it scratch resistant and ensure collectable bats are not damaged when being placed on and off the mount. 

  • Made by athletes for athletes.
  • Universal design fits most bats from T-Ball Bats to Drop 3 Bats.
  • Perfect for display or storage.
  • VBat Mount is available in black or white.
  • 8Bat Mount has double obrounds for stud mounting.

 WHAT'S NEXT?

“From baseball, to soccer, to volleyball and football, the need to have storage solutions is a necessity for any athlete looking to keep their equipment in top shape. The products coming out of HIDEit SPORTS are endless.” Chuck Shirley, Co-Founder and COO.
