A dart mat will protect your floor, carpeting and darts from wear and damage.

The throwing distance 7'9 1/4" (2.37m) is called the throwing line or toe line. Be sure to measure from the face of the board.

 Note: Dartboards come with different hanging brackects. The best bracket for ease of hanging and rotating is the U-Bracket which comes with all Bandit & Bandit Plus Dartboards.

How To Hang The New Bracket System?

Your fixing pack should have the following pieces:

A. 1 x plastic backing board disc (round piece) B. 1 x plastic wall bracket (U shape piece)
C. 6 x screw - 8 x 25mm dome heads (2 extra) D. 4 x screw - 8 x 15mm CSK
Note: Both the wall bracket and flange have a centre hole

Step 1:
Place the backing board disc (A) on the back of the board in the centre with the counter sink facing towards you (as per picture), using screws (D) fix the centre hole then the other 3.   Note:  On the Bandit Plus, the flange is already ready mounted on backing board

Step 2:
Place the wall bracket (B) on the wall at the height shown in diagram, the U shape recess should be facing with the opening to the top. Using the centre hole in the wall bracket line up your centre mark and screw a (C) screw in, this will be removed later. (Using a level, level the top of the bracket and fix the other four (C) screws. Then remove the centre screw.

The (C) screw should sit a little higher than the bracket, this helps the stability of the board. Now place your board complete with disc attached into the wall bracket and line up so the 20 scoring area is vertical.

How do I care for my Bristle Dartboard?

Puma darts Dartboard CareDartboards need to have wear evenly spaced across the entire surface of the board or the board will become prematurely worn out from over-compaction of the sisal.
To spread wear across your board it should be rotated frequently. Rotate the number ring moving the '20' through to the next blank segment i.e, '20' would become '12'.
The only area of the board, which cannot be protected by turning, is the bullseye area. It is essential that when you are practicing you do not continually practice your play on the bullseye, as this area of the board will wear out. Remember to spread your wear.

Bristle boards, being manufactured from sisal, a natural fibre, are susceptible to moisture damage. Therefore under no circumstances should any moisture be placed onto the board.

A key element in maintaining your dartboard is maintaining the points of your darts a sharp dart will help the dartboard self heal. Ensure points are kept sharp and not blunt or hooked. A hooked dart will damage a bristle board quickly as it will pull the fibre out and blunt (worn) dart points cause over-compaction - check your dart points and sharpen or replace as required or they will prematurely wear out your board. Specialised points with grip can also cause excesive wear.
