Mirror Plates

2 Mirror Plates are fixed to the back of the frame, 1 each side, approximately a 3rd of the way down from the top


To attach this to the wall, hold the artwork in position and level then mark the wall through the holes with a pencil. For large artworks this may be a 2 person job.

Where the marks are on the wall, drill and raw plug the wall. Once this is done, hold the art work in position on the wall and screw through the mirror plates from the front to secure to the wall.

This method is recommended for frames up to 40x50"

Please note that the raw plugs and screws are not supplied.

Strap Hangers

2 Strap hangers are fixed to the back of the frame, 1 each side, approximately a 3rd of the way down from the top.

2 J hooks are supplied loose which need to be secured to the wall. The top of the strap hangers simply hook over the J Hooks to hold frame on the wall.

Strap hangers are a more stronger and stable hanging solution and ideal to use with larger heavier frames.
