How to Hang Large Framed Art with Corner Brackets

If you ordered a large photo or piece of art, you'll receive corner brackets. They may look intimidating, but corner brackets actually make hanging large works unbelievably simple. Plus they save you from having to straighten your art over time.

Step 1: Determine where you would like the top of your frame to sit. Measure two inches below that point, and make a mark with a pencil.

Step 2: Look at the back of your frame, and measure the distance between the two arrows on each corner bracket.

Step 3: Locate the mark you made on the wall, measure that same distance as between the brackets, and make a mark at each end of your measuring tape.

Step 5: Hang your piece. Take a few steps back to ensure it’s straight. If you’re unsure, use a level to check. Adjust as needed, and enjoy!
