A holster for a bed monitor electric control module consists of two substantially rigid continuous wire loops bent into identical inverted-Ls of height less than a height of the module and held in back-to-back spaced apart relationship by upper and lower substantially rigid parallel wire cross members fixed to rearward vertical portions of the inverted-Ls. The cross members are of length and the upper horizontal portions of the inverted-Ls are of contour so as to constrain horizontal movement of a module which is inserted downwardly therein and seated on the lower horizontal portions of the inverted-Ls. A hanger is formed from a resiliently flexible wire bent into a configuration compatible with the holster and which can be flexed to permit insertion cf the hanger into the holster, manipulation of the hanger within the holster and release of the hanger into interlocking relationship with the holster so as to constrain movement of the holster relative to the hanger. To disengage the hanger from the holster, the hanger is again flexed, manipulated and withdrawn from the holster.
