Professional picture hooks used by museums and galleries since they leave the smallest of nail holes in the wall. This brass plated hook is strong and will support 100 pounds, but the best feature is the strong blue steel nail that has a tiny pin-point on the end. These nails leave the least amount of wall damage possible – when you remove your art and pull the nail out of the wall only a tiny pin-point hole will remain.
The hooks work well in drywall or plaster walls. The angled collar on the hook will guide the nail in at the perfect angle to provide maximum support. The sharp steel nails work great in plaster walls since they can penetrate the plaster with a very small hole to minimize any wall damage.
These hooks and nails are reusable if they have not been damaged during installation or removal. Using gentle tapping when installing and proper nail removal will allow for multiple uses of the professional brass plated picture hooks. To remove brass hooks use fingers or pliers to pull the nail out at a 45 degree angle with a slight twisting motion. Prying a hook away from the wall with a tool will usually damage the wall surface and possibly the hook or nail.
Using two picture hooks in the wall is a good practice since it will help keep the picture straighter and distribute the weight evenly. When using two hooks to hang a picture, space them apart on the wall at a distance equal to one third of the width of the frame.
