How to hang a Picture Frame on the wall

step-1

2
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.

step-2

14
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!

step-3

15
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.

step-4

16
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!

step-5

17
Select the correct sized rawl plug for the hole and insert it into the hole

step-6

17.5
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.

step-7

18
Hang your picture frame from the hook or screw by gently lowering the cord onto it.

step-8

 19
Not necessary at all, but for absolute perfection a spirit level can be used
to make sure it’s Just right!

step-9

 20
And thats it, all done ! All that’s left to do now is to stand back and admire your good work.
