There are many times when hanging items on a wall with D-ring hardware is the absolute best choice. The D-ring hardware wall hanging system is great for many small items (not the least of which is a collection of commemorative plates, which you can read all about here for fun) but can also serve as an excellent choice for larger items—naturally, this means larger D-rings.

Regardless of the size or what you're using your D-ring hardware to hang on the wall, YOUHANGIT has a solution for you that saves time while ensuring your items will be perfectly level when you're done hanging them. You can read all about our patented hands free level, the YOULEVEL, that is totally upending how everyone in the know is rethinking how easy it can be to level a picture.

Using the instructions on the right, you'll simply want to position the YOUHANGIT over the D-ring opening where the screw, nail, or Sexy Metal Hook will go, affix it there, then with the YOULEVEL in place and showing you that things are... well, level, squish your art, photo, or any other wall hanging into the wall to make the perfect mark.

Once you pull away with your mark perfectly made, you can add your screw anchors as desired, or simply move in with whatever other hardware you had in mind for hanging your D-ring hardware items. It's that simple!

  1. TRACE
    Using a pencil, trace the inside shape of the D-Ring.

    CAUTION: REMOVING THE RED SAFETY PLUG WILL ACTIVATE THE SHARP-POINTY-THING INSIDE, WHICH WILL CAUSE HARM. KEEP HANDS AND FINGERS CLEAR FROM THE PATH OF THE V-GROOVE WHEN SAFETY PLUG IS REMOVED. BE SURE TO RETURN SAFETY PLUG AFTER USE. CHOKING HAZARD-SMALL PARTS.
