How to use Hang & Level™ with different nails and picture hooks

Do you struggle with figuring out where to put your fasteners for picture hanging? We designed Hang & Level™ to mark exactly where the nail goes. We’ll show you how to use our picture hanging tool with DécoNails™, a regular nail and a picture hook.

How to use Hang & Level

Hang & Level  is simple and easy to use. Read on to find out how to install a DecoNail, regular nail and picture hook using the tool to mark the spot for the hanger.

Using DécoNails

Hammer the DécoNail directly into the spot at a 90˚ angle until it is flush to the wall. 

Using a regular nail

Position the nail on the mark, and hammer it into the wall at a 45˚ angle, which provides the best holding power for a regular nail.

Using a picture hook

This is the only fastener where you don’t nail it into the mark. When using a traditional brass hook, position it on the wall so that the bottom of the hook is over top of the mark made by the Hang & Level. Then keeping it in this position, hammer the nail at the top of the hook into the wall.
