A support bracket for mounting a device such as a laser targeting and feedback system to a spray gun. The bracket includes a bolt having a threaded end, a first collar disposed on the bolt opposite the threaded end and a second collar threadably engaged with the threaded end of the bolt. A compressible member is disposed on the bolt between the collars. Opposite the compressible member, a support arm used to support the device is attached to the second collar. The bracket is engageable with a portion of the spray gun body and is engaged therewith by deflecting the compressible member between the collars such that the compressible member frictionally engages the spray gun. The use of the compressible member to secure the bracket to the hook allows the bracket to be utilized with spray guns having various configurations so long as the spray gun incorporates a portion on the spray gun body that is engageable by the compressible member.
