How to hang a Picture Frame on the wall
|Before you get started, it’s important to make sure you have everything you will need. Aside from your frame and hanging hardware all you really need is a screwdriver, hammer, pencil and for perfection a spirit level, for heavy frames you will also need a power drill.|
|Using your trusty pencil, mark the exact central position on the wall where you wish to hang your frame, remember to take onto account the slack in the cord!|
|Heavier frames may require a rawl plug and screw but for most frames a nail on its own should suffice,
for the demonstration we have used a single hanging hook and nail.
|If you do have a heavy frame, we do suggest a rawl plug and screw to guarentee a safe and sturdy fixing. Start by drilling a suitably sized hole with a power drill. WARNING: Check for wires and pipes in the wall before drilling!|
|Select the correct sized rawl plug for the hole and insert it into the hole|
|Insert the appropriate size screw through the hook if you are using one and tighten to the wall, if you are not using a hook, screw in the screw and leave 10mm-15mm proud from the wall.|
|Hang your picture frame from the hook or screw by gently lowering the cord onto it.|
|Not necessary at all, but for absolute perfection a spirit level can be used
to make sure it’s Just right!
|And thats it, all done ! All that’s left to do now is to stand back and admire your good work.|
