Picture-Frame Hangers and Nails

It's good to have a selection of these on hand in different sizes. Large versions installed with an angled nail can support up to 20 lbs. For heavier loads (25 pounds to 50 pounds), use a flat-mounted hook and an anchor.

Best for: Picture frames (up to 20 pounds) on drywall and plaster.
