To hang heavy objects on walls, install connectors that will hold a large amount of weight and will self-thread into the wall, and make sure the picture or mirror has a chain or picture wire. Locate the center of where the object will hang and then easily straighten the object on the picture wire with instructions from a remodeling contractor and home repair specialist in this free video on hanging pictures.
Alright, I'm Tim Gipson, I'm going to talk to you about how to hang heavy objects such as this very large picture here and how to do it where you don't have to worry about it coming down after you do that. Now one of the best things to use are these connectors here and you can buy these connectors and they're rated at different pounds that they'll hold and this particular one will hold up to about 150 pounds per attach point. And all it is is basically just a heavy threaded screw and one thing that's nice about it is you don't have to pre-drill for it. So what we do is once we locate where our two centers are then all we need to do is just get this started and use a Phillips head screwdriver and you just, it threads into your drywall and you want to thread it down just till it's snug. And like I said, these are rated at a very high amount of force that it takes to pull them out of the wall so with two of them, you get a very secure attach point. And then one thing on your pictures, pictures or mirrors, is you want to make sure that it has some kind of either a chain such as this or that is has a wire, picture wire, in the back of it. So once you put these up, then all we need to do is to reach up and to hook our mirror and get it centered and that's all there is to it. And now with that up there, we know we got a nice secure installation. So I'm Tim Gipson and that's how to hang heavy objects.
