Also known as Hanging Hooks. We stock a wide range of picture hooks for all picture hanging needs including hanging hooks for soft and hard walls, picture rail hooks, heavy duty hangers, safety picture hooks, magnetic hooks, and more. They are most often used in conjunction with D Rings and picture cord or wire. Affix the two D Rings to the back of the frame and tension cord from one to the other. Hang the cord over the picture hook that is either nailed or screwed into the wall.
What is a picture hook?
Use pictures hooks to hang pictures and mirrors on walls. They come in many forms depending on the item being hung and the wall in which is it being hung to. For hard walls a special picture hook is needed to penetrate into the hard brick. For heavy items such as large mirrors and frames use a heavy duty hanger.
Contact us if you are unsure of the best hook for the job. We can point you in the right direction for safe and secure hanging. We always recommend you use a picture hanger that is capable of supporting more than the item weighs.
When a picture or mirror falls it is most likely down the the screw or nail coming loose from the wall, which is why it's essential to choose the right option for the job. The hanging hardware rarely fails but we recommend using hardware that is more than capable of supporting the weight of the framed picture or mirror.
