How to Hang Small Framed Art with a Sawtooth Hanger

how to hang art with a sawtooth hanger

Small pieces (we’re looking at you Instagram Mini) usually come with a sawtooth hanger. To properly hang your art, simply mark and hammer your nail about 1/2 an inch below the center of the top of the frame. Here's how to get the perfect hang (on the first try). 

Step 1: Hold your frame up to the wall where you'd like it to hang.

Step 2: With a pencil, mark the wall at the top center of the frame.

Step 3: Measure the distance from the top of the frame to the bottom of your sawtooth hanger. (It’s usually about a half of an inch.)

Step 4: Finally, measure that distance toward the floor from the mark you made on the wall. This is where you will hammer your nail.

Step 5: Hammer in your nail, and simply place the sawtooth hook over the nail. Straighten as needed. A level will help ensure your art is perfectly aligned.
