Hang a Mirror: Use a Screw and Anchor in One
When I’m hanging something heavy like a mirror or a large piece of artwork with glass, I want to make sure I can be confident that it won’t come crashing to the floor in the middle of the night. Can you imagine the mess a broken mirror would make? And who wants seven years of bad luck?
This is why I use a Déco Screw whenever I question the weight of the piece I’m hanging. The screws are super strong — they’re a combination of a screw and an anchor and each one can hold up to 30 lbs. The product’s unique cone-shaped shank acts as an anchor and all you need is a Phillips or slotted screwdriver, a couple of twists, and presto, it’s up and ready to hold your artwork! No drill is required. Also, because the Déco Screw is mid-size in length, there is no need to worry about puncturing wiring or plumbing, giving you additional peace of mind.
If your piece is extremely heavy and fitted with a picture wire, use two screws. Large mirrors are usually fitted with two D-rings, so you can trust Déco Screws to do the job.
