How to keep picture frames perfectly straight

If you stopped straightening your frames because you know they’ll end up crooked all over again next time you dust, you’re not alone. But life is too short to put up with such niggly little things – here’s a cool product that is guaranteed to put an end to crooked pictures. 

Meet Anchor Points, little bumpers with pins at the end that you push into the wall to anchor your frames. Here’s how they work:

  • Peel off the backing.
  • Stick the adhesive back to each of the bottom corners of your frame.
  • Hang your frame and push the pointy part (the pins) straight into the wall.

The bumpers stick to most solid frame surfaces, including wood, plastic and metal. They are translucent by design, so once they are installed they’re barely noticeable. They fit both narrow and wide frames.

Watch this 30-second video, it’s easier to understand, and I promise the next time you’re hanging pictures, you’ll thank me!

Picture hanging tip: When hanging a grouping, like a gallery wall, stick Anchor Points on each frame as you go. They’ll keep your art nice and straight when you’re hammering the nail to hang the next frame. You won’t have to re-level each frame as you add to your gallery. Trust me, it will make the job much easier.

Now you can dust with confidence without worrying about your picture frames going askew.
