1. What the **** is a Designer Kit and what does it include?
Really, it's genius.

Now you can hang anything, anywhere, anytime.

2. What sparked the idea for such a rad Kit and package of tools that shows you how to hang anything right the very first time?
At YOUHANGIT we're geeks who love gadgets, widgets, and finding creative ways to solve problems. But, we're consumers too, so we understand the brilliance of a product that makes life a little simpler—that's what our company is all about. Our Designer Kit is a one-stop solution chock-full of simple innovations, meant to make your life a little easier while blowing up the packaging paradigm that consists of hard-to-open plastic containers.
First came the YOUHANGIT marking device, with its sharp-pointy-thing inside that makes the perfect mark on the wall where the wall hardware gets installed. NO guessing, NO math, No fractions, NO tape measures! Simply perfect every time!
Then came the YOULEVEL, which created the perfect marriage of innovation as its hands-free breakthrough complimented the marking devices, making sure anything could be hung perfectly in seconds versus hours! Even round items like towel bars, curtain rods and wrought iron candelabras were no match.
What was left to make it the smashing one-stop-shop-success it is today? Top-of-the-line, sexy metal hooks that crush the competition… and thus was born the YOUHANGIT Designer Kit. To put it simply:
Our kick-ass innovations + easy-to-open and reusable Minus1One packaging + an assortment of beefy hooks = Blissful hanging forever!
YOUHANGIT: a simpler, better way to hang it right the first time.
3. Would a YOUHANGIT Designer Kit make a good housewarming gift?
Absolutely. Remember the last time you moved? Exciting, energizing, emotional—and once you realized the sheer magnitude of filling up those endless blank walls—maybe just a little bit daunting too. In the midst of boxes, bubble-wrapped paintings, and bent hangers, you might've been overwhelmed by the task of trying to make your new house a home.
Nothing compares to a new space adorned with the pleasant memories of family, friends, and the relics from journeys past. Lending a helping hand to your recently relocated chums with a YOUHANGIT Designer Kit (and maybe a sweet pizza with all the fixins!) will earn you some bonus points.
The Designer Kit seriously has everything you could want for delivering a healthy dose of hanging bliss; you can hang everything you brought from the old joint plus new stuff you may have maxed out your TJ Maxx card. Hooks, nails, YOUHANGIT, and the famous hands free leveler, the YOULEVEL, will get you hanging it perfectly level the first time—and wicked fast too! If your loved ones are ready to never have to worry about the chore of figuring out how to hanging pictures, mirrors, or anything else, then you’re looking square in the eye of the perfect gift!
4. How much time will the YOUHANGIT Designer Kit save when trying to figure out how to hang pictures, art pieces, mirrors or even a speaker sound bar?
TONS! That's why we invented it. Use the YOUHANGIT devices and the YOULEVEL handsfree level to easily and quickly level your masterpieces and mark the exact location on the wall where they're going to hang. Then, grab one of our included hooks or nails, hammer, and hang it perfectly in seconds . . . not hours.
It's as easy as that.
What's even more impressive is how fast and easy it is to hang items that have double KEYHOLES on the back that you're supposed to attach to, like mirrors and speaker bars. This used to be an impossible and frustrating task on the honey-do list. Today, hanging even the most complex items can be fun! Just use two YOUHANGIT marking devices attached to each Keyhole, push to mark, and the rest is history.
“How?” you ask? The Designer Kit makes hanging anything a short, simple, one-person job; and because it comes in a cool, reusable Minus1One toolbox that fits in your kitchen drawer, it'll never end up MIA in the warzone of the garage or junk drawers.
5. How do I hang a picture with the YOUHANGIT Designer Kit?
Cut the tabs, pop open the lid, and let's begin. Take out the YOULEVEL. Slide the top fin in between the glass and the frame. Peel the sticker off of one of the YOUHANGIT and place it over the hanging hardware on the back of the picture, regardless of whether it has a Wire, Sawtooth, Keyhole or D-Ring . Don't forget to replace the safety plug and remove the YOUHANGIT from the back of your item! Fasten a nail or the appropriate hook onto the wall and hang your picture. Use the YOULEVEL to make any final adjustments, and that's it--you're done!
Depending on the frame's hardware, you may end up using two YOUHANGITs for multiple sawtooths or hanging pictures with double keyholes. Remember to use screws with drywall anchors (not included) if your frame has keyholes.

6. How do I hang framed art with the YOUHANGIT Designer Kit?
Take out the hands-free YOULEVEL. Slide the top fin in between the glass and the frame.
Remove the sticker and attach a handy-dandy YOUHANGIT to the hanging hardware on the back of the frame, regardless of whether it has a Wire, Sawtooth, Keyhole or D-Ring . Remove the RED safety plug from the YOUHANGIT. Place your art in the desired spot against the wall. Use the YOULEVEL to ensure the art is straight, and then press gently towards the wall. The YOUHANGIT will “smoosh” under the pressure, causing the sharp-pointy-thing inside to leave a small mark on the wall that indicates where to place the wall hardware.
From there, you’ll insert a nail at the mark, or align the bottom of a hook with the mark. Don't forget to replace the safety plug and remove the YOUHANGIT from the back of that picture, mirror, or whatever else you’re hanging! Hang your masterpiece on the wall using the hands-free YOULEVEL to make sure it's well hung, and perfectly level every time.
Depending on the frame's hardware you may end up using two YOUHANGITs for multiple sawtooths or keyholes. Remember to use screws with drywall anchors (not included) if your frame has keyholes.

7. How do I hang a mirror with the YOUHANGIT Designer Kit?
Hanging a mirror with the YOUHANGIT Kit is just as easy as hanging anything else! Take a YOUHANGIT from the Kit and peel off the sticker. Attach it to the hardware on the back of the mirror, regardless of whether it has a Wire, Sawtooth, Keyhole or D-Ring followed by removal of the RED safety plug. Take the blue and white YOULEVEL and slide the fin in between the mirror and the frame. Place the mirror in its desired spot, level it, and press against the wall.
The YOUHANGIT will “smoosh” under the pressure, causing the sharp-pointy-thing inside to leave a small mark on the wall that indicates where to place the wall hardware. Insert a nail at the mark--or, align the bottom of a hook with the mark. Don't forget to replace the safety plug and remove the YOUHANGIT from the back of your mirror! Hang the mirror and use the YOULEVEL to double-check the frame is straight.
Depending on the mirror frame's hardware, you may end up using two YOUHANGITs for multiple sawtooths or keyholes. Remember to use screws with drywall anchors (not included) if your frame has keyholes.

8. How do I hang a curtain rod with the YOUHANGIT Designer Kit?
Hanging curtain rods is tough! Really tough. Unless: you have our "why didn’t I think of that" innovative YOUHANGIT on each end of the mounting brackets. Our YOUHANGIT and sweet hands-free level, the YOULEVEL, make hanging curtain rods a breeze.
The manufacturers of curtain rods typically supply screws with drywall anchors that attach the mounting brackets and the rod arms to the wall. What they don't supply is a way to affix a handsfree level to the curtain rod while you work or a way to mark the location for the mounting screws. This is where the YOUHANGIT Designer Kit comes in.
Remove the stickers and attach two YOUHANGITs to the mounting bracket hardware on each end of the curtain rod. Remove the RED safety plugs from the YOUHANGITs. Take the YOULEVEL and place it on top of the curtain rod. Loop one end of the rubber band around the small knob or pivot on one side of the YOULEVEL. Wrap the same band around the curtain rod, and then re-loop it over the same pivot on the YOULEVEL. Repeat this same step-by-step on the other end of the level.
Ensure the curtain rod is straight above the window, and then press against the wall to leave two small marks. This may require a friend if you are hanging longer curtain rods, making sure to “smoosh” the YOUHANGITs simultaneously, causing the sharp pointy things to leave small marks that perfectly locate where to affix the curtain rod's mounting brackets. Don't forget to replace the safety plugs and remove the YOUHANGITs from the mounting brackets! Place your hanging hardware over the YOUHANGIT marks, and hang your curtain rod!
Be sure to check the box of your curtain rod, as most manufacturers will include the screws with drywall anchors for your convenience.

If all that doesn’t have you at ease just yet, you should know the YOUHANGIT Designer Kit includes awesome instructions, complete with images and links to our DIY blog that simplify the process.
9. How do I hang a towel bar with the YOUHANGIT Designer Kit?
We love this almost as much as hanging curtain rods! Why? Because hanging rods, bars and anything round used to be a pain in the buns—until now!
If you have the YOUHANGIT Designer Kit open and you've inspected the contents, you may have been wondering about the purpose of the rubber bands. These are meant to wrap around the towel bar and loop over the pivots at each end of the hands-free YOULEVEL, securing it and creating some serious hands-free magic.
If you still have questions about how to use the YOUHANGIT wall hanging system to hang towel bars, watch our video on how to hang a towel bar right the first time here.
Plus, the Designer Kit includes awesome instructions, complete with all kinds of images and detailed graphics to get you through the process.
10. Can I use the YOUHANGIT Designer Kit with other manufacturer's hardware?
Hells yeah! Our metal hooks are the strongest on the market and they're sexy too, but we won't hold it against you (yeeyaaahh!)
In many cases, especially with items that use a Keyhole, a screw with a drywall anchor is the preferred method of hanging, as the head of the screw "slots" easily into the Keyhole. The cool thing is, both the YOUHANGITs and the YOULEVEL work in tandem to locate the placement of the wall anchors—so whatever you are hanging ends up perfectly level every time!
No math, no fractions, no tape measures—just unadulterated hanging bliss.
