The picture here shows a picture hung on a wall with the brass triangle hangers exposed on top of the picture frame. This is a common method of using the hangers and was very much in vogue and used extensively years ago.  It is still very common to see pictures and craft objects hung up like this today.  Lots of Primitive Objects that are in vogue today are hung up using this style and approach.  I like the look as well especially on antique pieces or items that resemble antiques.  Items look wonderful hung up this way on wood work and I have seen lots of it use in kitchens and farm houses.

This method is also very popular.  It does make the items a little more difficult to hang up because the tabs on the hangers need to be tipped out a little before hanging up the picture. Doing this makes it easier to get the hanger to catch the nail. 

It is also important to get a good measurement between the points of the hangers before driving the nails into the wall.  Make sure that the distance from the top of the picture frame, to the top of the hanger is the same on both sides of the picture frame.  This way when you drive in the nails into the wall hang the picture up with, the picture will be level if you use a small level and make sure you drive the nails in level.

I have seen pictures with these hangers on them where the distance from the top of the picture frame and the top of the hanger was not the same.  This is just plain sloppy work on behalf of the picture framer and I would tell that person so out right.  When the distances are not the same, it is impossible to hang the picture on the wall and get it level unless you actually drive the nails into the wall out of level. This is an absolute no-no. What happens when you want to change pictures.  You would have to keep moving the nails and putting more holes in your wall each time!  Don't let a picture framer do this to you.  Even more important, take the time to do it right yourself because when you get though using this web site you will be doing your own picture framing.

To get the hangers perfect on you picture frame you should measure down the distance from the top of the picture frame to the bottom of the brass triangle hanger and make a mark on each side of the picture where you want the bottom of the hanger to be.  You can use a square to make a perfect mark if you want to.  I can't tell you what that proper distance is, because each picture frame is different.

using a long nose pliers to hold nails for brass triangle hangersThen holding the brass hanger firmly you can drive the nails into the holes right where you want them. I use a small awl to prick the wood and make a small starting hole. Why? Because I want that nail to be driven in perfectly and I find it almost impossible to hold onto the nail with my fingers and then drive it in with a hammer.

In fact it is almost impossible to get them driven in perfectly this way. The only way to really properly drive in those small nails is by holding them with our long nose pliers.  By making a small starting hole with the awl first I can then get the nail driven in perfectly.
