I have lumber boards with finishing nails driven through them at intervals that suit the length of runners.
About every 2.5" or so does a good-enough job for hanging baits.
I mount the boards on walls.
Pierce a part of the runner to hang to cure.
This is for baits that CAN be hung.
Some baits, like curltails or ribbontails, are laid into pans to cure so they cure closest to the design of the mold.
I do things this way because the design of the mold makes a piece of plastic that is d-e-s-i-g-n-e-d to function in a way that is one of the reasons I bought the mold to begin with.
I want it to cure so it functions how it should...not in a distorted version of how it should.
Curing: I cure for a minimum of 4 weeks, but am not opposed to curing longer. Plastic changes over time. No PVC plastic bait is exempt, regardless of how long it's cured, but I'm going to do my thing because I'm a Tackle Crafter and I HATE crooked baits.
Once they're cured for 4+ weeks, I stand a good chance that when I pull a bait from the bag, it's not bent beyond acceptability, so it will function close to the design.
This is getting the most out of My PRECIOUS Fishing Time.
I spend many dollars on quality gear. The least I can do is give my lures some Time. Curing Time doesn't cost me a dime...but my lures look and function like Dime Pieces.
