How to hang pictures
Picture hanging it is an easy job as long as you have some knowledge about walls and if you have the right tools.
Before you start is very important to know if there are pipes or electric cables in the wall, we have had cases where the customer has punctured a pipe in the wall.
For hanging pictures you will need the following tools :
Step 1: Mark the top of the picture.
Step 2: Measure the top of the picture to where the picture hook is.
Step 3: Transfer the measure to the wall and mark it on the wall.
Step 4: Drill a hole where the mark is using a drill bit.
If the wall is made of concrete you will need a rotary hammer drill and raw plugs.
If the wall is made of plasterboard you will need plasterboard wall plugs. You can use the self-drill plasterboard plug. As advice try to pre-drill a hole first as when drilling the plug,
the plaster will crack.
If your picture is very heavy and you have a plasterboard wall make sure you screw into the stood as the plasterboard wall is too weak for heavy items.
Step 5: Insert the wall plug and then the screw
Step 6: Hang pictures on the screw.
