Hanging pictures? What size nail do you need?

Deco Nails come in two different sizes

Our Déco Nails come in two different sizes and customers often wonder which is the best size for their projects. The hanging hardware fitted on the back of your frames will help determine which nail will work best. 

The small nail head works best with D-Rings and keyhole hangers, as the smaller head easily fits in either type of hardware. The larger nail is ideal for picture wire and sawtooth hooks. These fixtures will be captured in the larger groove of the nail head, preventing any slippage. 

In some cases either the small or large nails will work. The metal shafts are identical for both nails, therefore each can safely support the same amount of weight, up to 20 lbs.
