Here's a walkthrough for anyone having trouble. [Part 1] I use a controller, have SKSE, Dawnguard, Hearthfire,& Dragonborn installed. LOOT determined the Load Order. At Windstat Manor home, I forged 'Amulet Displays' found under Misc from 1 Dwarven Ingot each. Took a few Displays and Amulets into Inventory. Went to the upstairs double bedroom, stood in front of the bedside End Table and dropped each Amulet Display on the bed. Picked it up by pointing to it then pressing the "Activate" button. With the Amulet Display stuck to my pointer, rotated it, then lowered it onto the End Table. To release, pressed the "Activate" button.
Dazz Feb 14, 2015 @ 8:40pm 
[Part 2] I then Equipped the chosen Amulet on my player's neck, exited Inventory, and "activated" the pointer on the wall to deselect. Then I pointed to the Amulet Display and pressed "Activate" with medium weight. It was showing "Take Amulet Display" but then vanished briefly and returned with "Activate Amulet Display" now locked to the table surface and ready to receive the jewelry. With the Amulet still equipped to my player's neck, I pointed and medium clicked the Amulet Display again and the Amulet was removed from inventory to be placed on the Amulet Display.

Brilliant! Thank you, Mentilreq. I hope you haven't given up on this mod. Definitely works for game-generated Amulets/Necklaces including Bonehawk Amulet and Unique items as well as player-smithed Un & Enchanted Necklaces. (See my profile screenshots.) I have no purely modded jewelry to trial yet.
Some enhancements I hope to see are:
Groupings. It would be more convenient to smith groups of 3, 4 and 5 to be dropped and positioned as one unit, then activate each hotspot to load each necklace, or just one in the center, like the Bone Hawk Amulet.
Alternative Textures. Red Velvet to complement the display cases, or short clipped Fur, ie Snow Bear/Fox, Black Bear, Chocolate or Blue Seal Skin, Green Blanket, ... ?
Smaller Size A shorter length option to fit inside the HF Dagger Display cases. These could be Half to TwoThirds current length and with minimal slope angle. Necklaces notch at sides near the top and drape behind or underneath the smaller display.

@mentilreq and @saunders, bryan, using SKSE is no guarantee the displays will work. I've been trying for many, many weeks now to get your mod to work and it's just not working. Perhaps it's system set up, varying OS and whanot, but for whatever reason or set of circumstnaces this mod has never worked for me. It has not worked for necklaces and/or amulets that came with Skyrim, or modmade necklaces and/or amulets or anything else either vanilla or created by others. It just flat doesn't work on my system and perhaps not yours either Bryan. I so hoped I could one day get it to finally work, but alas, I've finally given up. Perhaps one day, when I get brave enough and perhaps good enough with the CK I'll make one that works for everyone, but then, isn't that hope of all modders? LOL I gave it several go's but I've finally given up. Good luck to you Bryan and keep modding Mentilreq! Ciao! *HUGS* =D
saunders.bryan Dec 6, 2013 @ 11:30pm 
oh..cause when I hit the "E" button to lock it...I wind up taking it....SKSE....let me check the link when I get up..it's 2:30 am now and I'm sleepy....ty......peace
mentilreq  [author] Dec 6, 2013 @ 7:14pm 
@saunders.bryan Once you have the display where you want it, activate it ("A" button on 360 controller/ "E" on the keyboard) to lock it in place. Also make sure you are running SKSE, there is a link in the description if you need it.
saunders.bryan Dec 6, 2013 @ 11:32am 
the display plzzz.it won't lock so I can put a neklace on it.... ty
mentilreq  [author] Dec 6, 2013 @ 11:26am 
@saunders.bryan Are you asking about the Display itself or the Amulet once it's placed?
saunders.bryan Dec 5, 2013 @ 7:11pm 
Your mod is cool,but I can't get them to lock..I keep picking them up or they keep moving?
Sassy Nov 16, 2013 @ 2:09pm 
Nope, not amulets or necklace from any place but the game, nope no amulte/necklace mods at all and my version of SKSE is totally up to day. Dang... more dead ends... come on, think harder, I know you can do it!! <winks> LOL At least I sure hope you can cuz it's driving me nuts and I' got nuthin' to contribute helpwise! LOL Thanks hon! *HUGS* ♥
mentilreq  [author] Nov 16, 2013 @ 1:40pm 
@Sassy Are the amulets/necklaces you are using from a mod, also, do you have any mods installed that alter the vanilla amulets/necklaces? Also make sure the version of SKSE you are using is up to date.
Sassy Nov 16, 2013 @ 1:30pm 
I do and I am. What now boss? :D Thanks! *HUGS* CIao! ♥
mentilreq  [author] Nov 15, 2013 @ 5:53pm 
@Sassy Do you have SKSE installed, and are you using the "skse_loader.exe" to load Skyrim?
Sassy Nov 15, 2013 @ 5:15pm 
I'm having an issue with the displays. I have an amulet equipped yet the display gives me the "You must have an amulet equipped" message. I've tried it with a variety of necklaces and amulets. Does it have to be an amulet? Or can it be a necklace OR amulet? I was so hoping I could put them on a bookshelf and then activate it to place the necklace/amulet. Any help and/or ideas? Thanks in advance!! Ciao! :D
danka_eltamey Oct 27, 2013 @ 1:03pm 
if you dont already know, the display wont take the saarthal amulet
Podnebesnaya Oct 8, 2013 @ 12:48am 
Yep, I've checked yesterday twice- I'm launching Skyrim using SKSE launcher. And actually amulets are not from mod, just from game - Amulet of Mara, Zenitar and so on.
mentilreq  [author] Oct 7, 2013 @ 5:54am 
@l.vygonnaya Is the amulet from another mod? Also, just to be clear you need to launch the skse_loader to start Skyrim, I wasn't sure from your post if that is what you are doing.
Podnebesnaya Oct 7, 2013 @ 5:46am 
Yes, I have a special SKSE Launcher
mentilreq  [author] Oct 5, 2013 @ 10:33am 
@l.vygonnaya Are you launching Skyrim through Steam or the skse_loader.exe from the Skyrim install directory?
Podnebesnaya Oct 5, 2013 @ 8:12am 
And what if I have SKSE installed, but still cannot put amulets on the displays - it says "equip a necklace to put it on display". Amulet is equipped, for sure.
Sassy Sep 29, 2013 @ 11:04am 
Thank you darling! I appreciate your help! Off to own the world.. Skyrim that is :)
mentilreq  [author] Sep 29, 2013 @ 9:51am 
@pspsassy SKSE is a script extender that gives modders added flexibility to Bethesda's Papyrus scripting.
*You can download the latest version clicking on the link in the description then just drop the files into the Skyrim directory and overwrite any files if you are prompted to.

*To launch Skyrim using SKSE open the "skse_loader" instead of the usual launcher.

*To place an object you have dropped you need to hold the activation key while your crosshairs are on the dropped object ("A" on a 360 controller or "E" on your keyboard).
Sassy Sep 28, 2013 @ 2:12pm 
First, what is SKSE? Sorry I'm really new to the Skyrim mods. What is it and where do I get it? Is there a way to actually place these items on a table or shelf? When I try to drop items to a specific place they just fall on the floor, no matter which direction I stand or face, etc. the dropped items always falls to the nearest fall... I just don't get it. How do I do that and if SKSE is required, where, what, hoe... all the fun questions. Thanks in advance to helping a newbie to mods. I played the game all the way through with no mods at all... not one perk. This go round is a bit challenging... help? Thank you!
Zelada1994 Sep 22, 2013 @ 2:46pm 
This is a really awesome idea and i like the model of the display rack but the set up of having do drop it and then fight with it to get in the position you want is kinda annoying D; awesome mod though
TheFlyingDixieCups Sep 21, 2013 @ 5:49am 
@lahtis Quit whining because you don't want to take five minutes to install SKSE and make your gaming experience better. xD
lahtis Sep 19, 2013 @ 1:41pm 
Nice +1. skse -1
Victoryguard Sep 19, 2013 @ 12:21pm 
Problem in # 1 = happened with display mod Lightsaber phsyics activation order, open + gravity = lost item. I have yet to retrieve it from deactivated state of item hilt. Duration, from start of dawnguard series, resolving Valerica rubicon. Luck required in lack of rational outcome.
Arrow Albert Sep 19, 2013 @ 9:37am 
Okay thank you for taking your time to answer me, I'll probably try it out this weekend when I have some time to do it perfectly.
mentilreq  [author] Sep 19, 2013 @ 7:53am 
@Arrow Albert To download mods from the workshop launch Skyrim normally through steam and wait until they have finished downloading then exit and launch Skyrim with the skse_loader and it will run fine. Any mods you are using that don't require SKSE will still run fine. Unfortunately this mod will not work without SKSE it uses the "GetWornForm" function ( GetWornForm Creation Kit Wiki.) [www.creationkit.com] I have been using using SKSE and its equivalent for Oblivion, Fallout 3, and New Vegas since their release and have never had a problem with them, they are used in most of the more functional types of mods available.
Shaylah Sep 19, 2013 @ 2:35am 
Wow looks awesome, pity there is not some easier way to place the display first, perhaps when modding a house you could I guess. I love it anyways!
Arrow Albert Sep 18, 2013 @ 10:36am 
I've heard before that if I use SKSE I will no longer be able to launch Skyrim via Steam. Do you know why that is?
My workshop mods always download while I am launching Skyrim, will I be able to keep on downloading steam mods if I use SKSE?
Is there a posibility of using this mod without using SKSE? (What does SKSE do that this mod requires(Yes I know it's a script extender, but which script does the extender have that vanilla skyrim does not?))
Sorry for all those questions, I've been trying to avoid using SKSE for some time now and I don't really know if my mods will work with it. You don't need to answer any of those questions if you don't want to, I just want to be careful that's all.
Arrow Albert Sep 18, 2013 @ 10:26am 
Would you consider making helmet racks/displays?
mentilreq  [author] Sep 17, 2013 @ 7:06pm 
@Arrow Albert Yes it will work with custom amulets so long as their keywords and bipedal slots are setup correctly.
Arrow Albert Sep 17, 2013 @ 3:22pm 
Does it work with custom amulets?
Galadur Sep 17, 2013 @ 12:53pm 
Oh yes! Skyrim need this. :-)
trefgarn Sep 16, 2013 @ 6:56pm 
Ever think about those Nord dragon claw keys, a display for those would be rather cool and a good way to keep track of all of them. A 3 or 4 tierd rack with slanting shelves to show them off , no glass or side just small holes to show off the different colors and fingers or from the back to show off the different pics of combinations, which would only show one hole when not in use. always thought that would be a good item to show off, u pick any house that is yours by deed. like the displays, thanks.
mentilreq  [author] Sep 16, 2013 @ 3:05pm 
@Claerwen Yes, you have to start the game with the skse_loader. The easiest way to do that is to add the shortcut to steam as a non steam game. You will still get achivements like you noramlly would, and your save game will still be saved to the Steam Cloud.
Claerwen Sep 16, 2013 @ 1:27pm 
@mentilreq no Problem, thank YOU for answering so fast :) It works perfectly now. I have to start the game via SKSE, right? because when I start it via my Steam-Libeary, it doesnt work. Will my savegame still be uploadet to the Steam-Cloud, and do I get alle achievements and game time saved? Anyone here have experiences with that?
mentilreq  [author] Sep 16, 2013 @ 12:55pm 
@Claerwen I actually didn't add it until I saw your comment. Thanks for letting me know you were having a problem, or I would have completely forgot.
Claerwen Sep 16, 2013 @ 12:21pm 
@mentilreq Thank you sooo much... So, was I just to blind to see that you wrote it up there? XD I'm so sorry... I'm not really into modding :D
mentilreq  [author] Sep 16, 2013 @ 10:07am 
@Claerwen I didn't even think to mention it, but you need to have SKSE installed. http://skse.silverlock.org/
Claerwen Sep 16, 2013 @ 10:00am 
It doesn't work for me :-/ I'm able to craft, place and lock the display, but when I equip a necklace and try to activate it the second time to place it, I'm told that I have to equip a necklace to place it there. But I HAVE equipped a necklace:-/ I even tried different ones to make sure I don't want to place a quest item (like the fragments of gauldur's amulett...)... is there anyone with the same problem, am I doing it wrong or doesn't the mod work for me?
Darthax Sep 16, 2013 @ 4:08am 
What a useful mod
G20 Sep 16, 2013 @ 3:08am 
Excellent MOD!!! Thumbs ups :)
Vidani81 Sep 15, 2013 @ 8:09pm 
This is great! The amulets look very nice displayed in my home, thanks!
Damned Elf Sep 15, 2013 @ 7:44pm 
Very neat idea... As for better displays, have you looked up, perhaps, free 3d models of necklace displays? http://www.crazy3dfree.com/Model/Accessories/Jewelry-display-model.html - Might give you a idea or inspiration, and it's not that hard to recreate...
