Ah, sawtooth hanging hardware. A classic standby for the backings of diplomas, small framed family photos and mirrors, and so many other great pieces of wall decor. Sawtooth hangers are known for their ease of use most of the time, and work well in most cases with a small nail or screw. Oftentimes in the case of heavier items, of course, we at YOUHANGIT always recommend using screws with anchors when hanging a sawtooth picture that is on the heavy side. But beyond that, hanging a sawtooth picture frame or other item is a cinch, and doing so in a way that your mirror, photo, or painting is level on the wall just got a million times easier with the use of the YOUHANGIT wall hanging system.

By simply following the instructions in the photos on the right, you will easily be squishing that painting or other wall hanging up against the wall in no time. The patented and ingenious YOULEVEL will ensure that your art or anything else with sawtooth hardware gets hung perfectly level—that's exactly why we're known as the wall hanging system that "positions and levels in ONE shot."

We're always happy to answer your questions, which you can direct to us on Facebook or Twitter, but we also highly encourage you to take a look at our video library of how to hang pictures and, well, pretty much anything you can think of with sawtooth hardware or any other kind of hardware.
