Get a bold hold with DécoNails™.
Looking for hanging hardware you can trust? DécoNails™ are designed to hold securely in drywall, and work with all common hanging hardware types.
Q: How do I install DécoNails™?
A: Our DécoNails™ are designed specifically to be hammered into the wall at a 90º angle, until the back of the head is flush to the surface of the wall. This will ensure that it is installed securely and will prevent damage to the wall from the nail moving.
Q: How to remove DécoNails™?
A: To remove our DécoNails™ picture hanging nail, simply use the claw end of a hammer underneath the top edge of the nail to pop it out of the wall far enough to slip the claw behind the head of the nail to remove it the rest of the way.
Q: What are the benefits of using DécoNails™ versus picture hanging hooks?
A: Our DécoNails™ picture hanging nails are specifically designed to be the most secure way to hang pictures in drywall. Unlike traditional brass picture hanging hooks, your picture will hang exactly from the point in the wall where you place the nail. The patented head is designed to prevent your artwork from slipping off the nail, and to distribute the weight over a larger surface area, making it more secure and causing less damage to your wall.
Q: Can I use DécoNails™ to hang a shelf?
A: We recommend that you use a traditional wall anchor and screw combination to install wall shelves.The weight loads that wall shelving is subjected to can vary greatly, so it’s important that it is affixed to the wall as securely as possible. With this combination, you can adjust the amount that the screw extends from the wall to perfectly hold your specific wall shelf.

A: Yes. Our DécoNails™ are designed to work with all common types of hanging hardware including a sawtooth hanger.

Q: Will DécoNails™ hold double the weight if you use 2 of them?
A: No. While it’s true that hanging an item using two hangers will distribute the weight over two points, which will allow you to hang more weight on them together, it will not double the weight capacity for a single hanger. Always follow the recommended weight limits for the product.

A: The patented shape of the DécoNails™ heads are designed to work with all common types of hanging hardware including picture wire, D-Rings, sawtooth hooks and keyhole hangers.
