Use Two Nails Per Frame For More Stability

If your piece is heavy and fitted with a picture wire, use two Déco Nails to hang it so that the weight of the piece is evenly distributed. Not only will the frame be more secure on the wall, it will also hang straighter than if you used only one nail. Note that each nail can support up to 20 lbs; while using two doesn’t mean that you’re safe to hold 40 pounds, they will hold more weight than if only one nail is used.

Additionally, if you’re hanging a series of pictures horizontally, the two nails will allow you to easily adjust the spacing between pictures by sliding the art back and forth on the nails without having to reposition them.
