How to hang a dart board

The most common question about darts is how high should the dart board be and how far should the throw line be from the dart board. The height is the same for both soft and steel tip boards and is 5' 8". The distance to the throw line is measured from the face of the dartboard to the front of the throw line. For steel tip, the distance is 7' 9 1/4" and the distance for soft tip is 8'.
