HELP! Hanging Photos from Angled Walls

Recommended Posts

I have been searching for decorative brackets that would allow me to hang framed roll photos from my office walls. Basically a J shaped bracket with a flat bottom, preferably black in color.

 

Does anyone have recommendations or a source?

 

Here is a photo of my office. If here are other suggestions, lets hear them!

I have a room like this. I do not have a desk in front of the vertical walls, that is where I hang stuff. I have short book cases built in solid along the sides to display things off the floor but

it cost a bit of money to do it.

So beast, to clarify youre looking to hang picture frames from a vertical wall? I want to make sure were working with the correct medium...a standard type picture frame?

I am always in search of Missouri Medals and Items. This could be anything from WW1, WW2, Prisoners of War, Ephemera, or anything pertaining to Missourians.

 

I thank you for your time and consideration.

I had a place under a staircase that I wanted to use, I just put a small screw in the top and bottom or all 4 corners of the frames.

Thanks folks! My idea is to hang(place?) the frame flat against the side walls that are angled. This way, when I sit at my desk, I can turn left or right and see the photos.

Brig, Mr. Jerry, Thanks for the responses. On newer frames I can do this, but on the original roll photo frames I hope to find an alternative.

How about a simple cup hook in the angled drywall and a screw eye in the top of the wooden picture frame? Gravity should keep them hanging level.

 

 

Thanks! Interesting idea!

Maybe prodigious amounts of Velcro would work without damaging the frames?

Look into Mirror Hardware.They come in several styles,metal and plastic .You can use a longer screw of needed to adapt the length over the edge of the frame.Maybe add a spacer.They can work on riker mounts as well

L shaped millwork (or framing) laid in tracks. One larger L facing down for the top rail, one smaller L facing up for the bottom rail with some space for slack so that you can fit the photos, etc on the tracks. Paint or stain to suit your tastes.

 

Example: Use 1" x 1/2" on the top track, 1/2" x 1/2" for the bottom (or proportional). Your display material should be of uniform height to fit within the field between the tracks. They may be fastened with finishing nails or double face tape but I prefer screws.

 

It's the same method for mounting sliding glass doors, mirrors, sliding windows, etc.

 

To fit them in, push the materials up into the top L rail and drop them down on the bottom L rail. The larger lip on the top will keep them from falling. Easy to switch your display or move them around too.

 

That's how we mount them on walls at Hickam, Wheeler, Shafter, etc.

I have used the clear plastic ones noted here since I have the angled walls/ceiling as well. They do not intrude on the presentation.

Thanks to everyone for their ideas. The willingness to share ideas is another reason that I like this forum so much! I'm going to try a couple different methods and will post the results.

Just another thought - conventional hooks on the top, and good velcro at the bottom. I bought some velcro, to keep some small electronics switches from moving about.  It is incredibly strong - not like clothing velcro.

It is actually Velcro brand industrial strength, rated at 1LB per sq in, for a maximum of 10LB of weight.  I think is is their part #90593.  It is pretty impressive.

Another option, if you didn’t want to put adhesive on your wall, is 3M Command Strips.

Maybe pilot / test the options you’re considering.  Do one of each, and see how you like appearance, strength, etc.

Good luck!

I’ve used the 3m command brand Velcro strips to hang frames on my angled wall and they have worked out good so far. Here are a couple I hung.

I tried this before and they didn't hold well for me.  I'm not sure if I didn't use enough or if it is because the walls are painted plywood and not drywall. i would have preferred them as they are cleaner looking and I could remove and reposition the frames more easily.

Yeah I haven’t tried it with anything too heavy yet but these are held with 4 of the larger black strips and were the largest ones I could find. They have been up there for around 6 months at this point with no problem yet. They are in painted drywall.

These are amazing 

 

I’ve hung lots of my framed pics with the Velcro ones of these and they are solid. I’ve also hung 2 Pack shovels with them,  so they can take the weight
