HANGING YOUR ART (CORRECTLY)
Well as usual, there
are 40 trillion ways to do anything including hanging art (or mirrors).
This page will
deal with weight and proper techniques to help you "keep it up".
OK...here it is. PUT AWAY the lamp extension cord AND the
coat-hangers AND the old garage left-over fence-mending wire with
grease and cob webs all over 'em.
PUT AWAY the gum or other
senseless product used to keep your piece from tilting, (think
I'm kidding...click here)
get on with the "goods".
From small to big
These are for the small stuff. The newer styles (pictured here)
are "nail-less"....you guessed it
NO NAILS. They pound right in to the frame back. There are
2 rules when using sawtooths...
1). PUT IT IN THE MIDDLE
OF THE FRAME.
2). Have realistic limits as to weight and size.
We generally do not use sawthooths on anything larger than 11" x 14".
S T R A P H A N G E R S
These hangers are the kind we use on 99% of the stuff we frame.
They come in different sizes and allow the piece to hang closer to the
wall than do "screw-eyes".
