What about dust? Will my records be harmed?
Record Props do not attract any more dust than playing a record on a player without a dust cover. It's always important that records be handled with care no matter how you decide to play or display them. Record Props are intended for the casual listener and those that understand there is no way possible to avoid dust collection. We recommend usual care for your collection with a proper record cleaning brush or dust cleaner before spinning up your favorite albums. We've even got a few great options on our recommended products page.
Will Record Props DAMAGE MY album COVERs?
That would be horrible, wouldn't it? We've paid close attention to the detail of Record Props and we've created a design that pays close attention to your records. With a slight beveled edge that helps avoid damage to your covers, you can easily tilt your albums into place until they're flat against the wall.
Will Record Props fit all albums?
Record Props have been designed to fit most albums when displayed on the wall. We've come as close as possible to a one-size-fits-all design, however not 100% of albums will fit. Where does that leave us... one-size-fits-most? We've tested countless albums and have come up with a design that fits the overwhelming majority.
Box sets, or albums containing three or more vinyl records are an example of those that will likely not fit. Most single vinyl albums and most two-vinyl albums with gatefolds will fit, however some gatefolds, particularly double gatefolds (those that unfold twice) may or may not have a depth too wide to fit, depending on how thick the cover/cardboard is. Even some single albums which are printed on a very heavy/thick cardboard, fit better in the gatefold side of Record Props when displayed on the wall.
When displaying on tabletop, only single / non-gatefold albums apply since gatefolds stand upright by themselves. Again, we've come up with a design that fits most standard album covers to ensure you can display what is "now playing" in most cases.
Where can I purchaSe record props locally?
At the moment, Record Props are only available from this website and a select few resellers.
Can I partner with record props or resell the product on my website?
If you're interested in wholesale orders or reselling opportunities, please contact us with your quantity request, ideal timeline, and a description of why you're interested in carrying Record Props.
Are Record Props Available in white?
(because they are obviously shown in white on this website)
At the present time we are only manufacturing Record Props in Black. BUT, all Record Props come with a White and a Black T-pin to have as an option for displaying both light and dark records on the wall depending on your preference. Since the actual Record Prop is hidden from view when mounted on the wall, only the small pin shows in the center of the record once mounted.
That said, we have been getting more inquiries wondering if white will be available again, so we may just begin production on white again as we finalize version 2 of the product. If all goes well, we'll have more details in Summer 2018.

Please let us know what's wrong and if we can't resolve the issue, send back your order for a full refund.
Where did the NAME record props originate?
Our core philosophy stems from celebration of art and music. In the literal sense, we're propping vinyl records upright, and in the metaphorical sense, we're giving props to the artists and musicians we love. Add to that a bit of fun music trivia – the origination of the term props leads back to the Otis Redding song Respect. In it, the lovely Aretha Franklin shares her amazing vocals as she proclaims: ... I'm about to give you all of my money. And all I'm askin' in return, honey, Is to give me my propers when you get home ... We couldn't have said it better, Aretha.
