Framed Art Hung With Picture Wire on One Hook: Is It My Inner Ear or is That Crooked Again?

This is a little ridiculous, yes?

This is a little ridiculous, yes?

Unless you’re trying to master that “we’re at sea” look as your interior design motif, hanging artwork with picture wire with two—rather than just one hook—is a levelheaded idea. Most people choose to just knock out this simple hanging project with a hammer and a nail. Bam. Call it a day. But with YOUHANGIT, it’s equally as simple and your precious paintings are well hung, using the best hardware and the most reliable method. Up the ante: two hooks are better than one.

Even for those who take hanging their artwork very seriously, most are not aware that using two weight bearing points is a better idea for a number of reasons, not the least of which is your overuse of WebMD to determine whether or not you have Meniere’s disease. You don’t, okay?

Here’s why: All those beautiful paintings are swaying in the breeze—out there on one hook, nail, or screw. When there’s no system to preserve equilibrium behind the painting, the slamming of doors, running up and down stairs, screaming matches, loud games of Bingo, and children attempting their shot at the next Olympics can all cause artwork hung on a wire to slide, tilt, and even fall down. When you use two hooks instead of one and install the hardware with YHI Sexy Metal Hooks, the artwork isn’t just level when you hang it, it STAYS level.

For the more stubborn-minded: Yes, the guy at the hardware store told you that insane hook could handle 100 pounds. He wasn’t lying, and it probably can. But even if it could handle the weight of a humpback whale above your mantle, that does not an evenly hung humpback whale make. For order in your universe, artwork with wire frames should be hung on two hooks, and the YOUHANGIT Designer Kit contains several options—AND you can hang art without a stud. YHI has literally reengineered the hook—YOUHANGIT utilizes a system that makes the nails you use to hang artwork stronger than ever before—your nails and hooks will never bend or break again. Use two 10-pound hooks, two 20-pound hooks, or two 30-pound hooks. With the latter, the double-hook system will hold 60 pounds of artwork—if your art weighs more than that, please return it to the Prado Museum.

The two-hook hanging system means one thing for you that’s more important than any other variable we can mention: you no longer have to go around the house straightening every single framed picture… or live under the unsettling hypothesis that a poltergeist is among you. Once you hang art frames with two hooks along the wire, your request to be featured on “My Haunted House” on the Biography Network will be a total bust.
