The best hook for hanging a picture

The Simplicity hanger

28/6 Perfect picture hook: using a Simplicity picture hook (brass nail which passes through a brass washer) is strong to use on a plaster wall to hangĀ a picture. Why I like is because you only see a neat pin coming through a brass washer, not the unsightly normal picture hook The hook works on the angle drive principle, thatas more force is applied the hook is pulled harder against the wall. The hooks are avilable in 8 amd 16kg capacity. I like to divide the weight by 2 to be safe. And when the picture is not hanging, all you see is the brass plate, with the pin of the hook in the middle.

Plastic Wall Plugs

Plastic wall plugs, such as Ramset Star plugs for use in masonry applications have been around for a long time and for good reason: they work! Yet they can fail if simple instructions are not followed. Always use the right drill size suggested with the right screw, as this is a very common mistake that often leads to failure. However, to make things easier, all manufacturers colour code Wall Plugs to particular size drill bits to helping to eliminate possible mistakes.
