Editor's Notes

October 16, 2020:

What's so great about picture hanging kits is that once you buy one, you have enough hardware to last you for a pretty long time. Plus, with the variety of hooks, wires, and d-rings you get, you'll be prepared to handle a range of items.

If you have some experience with picture hanging, and already have an idea of how it's done, a basic kit like the Hecho 220 or the Stepcool Heavy Duty would be a good choice. They don't have the extra accessories of other kits, but if you don't need that stuff, there's no need to spend extra money on it.

On the other hand, if you're totally new to the hanging process, and aren't sure how to begin, go with the Aimintsen 238, or the Jawa Products Multifunction. These kits include handy leveling gauges with visual instructions that essentially walk you through the entire process.

The kit and its gear can only be effective if used with the correct frame though, so always make sure you find out the weight of the item you plan on hanging. If you use the wrong hardware, the frame can fall, damaging the wall, itself, and anyone standing nearby. This is especially important when dealing with larger items with glass panes.

If you're looking for a picture frame to hold your photos, here's a collection of quality picture frame options. If you're a sports fan, these jersey frames could also be a fun choice.
