    Hi.

    I have a frame with the following image but I don't know what king of screw I need to attach it to the wall or if a second part is required.

    Any help please?

    Thanks.1.jpg

    All you need is to put a normal picture hook on the wall and it will slot into the middle part of that fixing on the frame.

    I'm not 100%, but when I have seen these before I always fix a suitable size screw (judged in part for the type of wall and size & weight of the frame) to until perhaps the head and approx 5mm is left out the wall, and then slotted the fixing over the head of the screw The serrated section should I think rest on the 5mm of the screws length with the head of the screw nearly covered by the raised section.

    Me thinks I could have perhaps described this more clearly!

    Having only joined this community moments ago I feel almost presumptious in leaving a comment so soon, but I cannot resist saying, don't use too big (fat) a screw. Then the picture can be moved sideways from serration to serration in order to level it. Most people underrate the shear strength of the ordinary wood screwTongue

    I recently retired from 33 years 126 days of hanging other peoples picturesSmile Actually looking back even that was not that recent.

    "picture hook"... I have no idea why that didn't come into my head in the first place! Seems the most logical option, and a simple nail won't make to much of a problem if removed from the wall.


    Thanks all!

    It works ok and is strong enough. I've got one that's been hanging for over a year. Depending on the size of the image go for one with 2 nails if it's heavy.
