French Cleat Picture Hanger Kit 6 Inch – 3 Pairs – Small Z Bar Hanger Supports 50 lbs – Z Clip Mirror Hanging Hardware

Picture Hanging Cleats or French Cleats are an elegant way to hang art. Not only do they provide a more stable hanging of art, they also keep art level on the wall.

Light-Duty Cleat Hangers attach to the wall with the screws and plastic anchors supplied. This fastening method creates a solid, stable support for the frame. The 6″ aluminum cleats have two pre-punched slotted screw holes, four inches on center. The holes are slotted to allow for a small amount of leveling while you are screwing the cleat to the wall and to your art.

The six inch cleat is recommended for frames up to 20 inches wide. If your frame is wider, you should use a cleat longer than six inches. This light duty cleat hardware will support up to 50 pounds. The cleat is 1 1/8 inches wide so the wood frame or artwork you are attaching it to must be at least that width to accommodate the cleat.

If your artwork or craft project has a backing material that is either too thin or too soft to accept screw fasteners or is plastic, we recommend either a silicone-based liquid adhesive or a good quality double-sided foam-backed tape to attach the cleat instead of screws. In these situations be aware that the adhesive you use must adhere equally well to the aluminum cleat and whatever backing material you are dealing with and create a permanent bond on both surfaces.

French Cleats are the ideal picture hanging hardware for wood frames, picture frames, mirrors, framed photographs, wood crafts, pallet projects, pallet wood, stretched canvases, photo transfers on wood, triptychs, floating shelf, whiteboard, small cabinet and much more.
