How to Hang a Heavy Picture – Step by Step

  1. Pick Up A pack of VELCRO® Brand HANGables® Picture Hanging Strips

    Start by taking a pack of VELCRO® Brand HANGables® Picture Hanging Strips (Large). Designed for hanging heavy pictures and mirrors, these large picture hanging strips can hold up to 7.5kg per pack. 

  2. Attach The VELCRO® Brand HANGables® Picture Hanging Strips

    Attach one half of each set to your picture frame, and the other half to the wall and press down firmly

  3. Apply Pressure & Wait

    Rub the pads for 30 seconds and then wait one hour to allow the adhesive to bond with the wall and the picture frame. 

    This is an extremely important step – giving the adhesive plenty of time to set will ensure your heavy picture stays securely stuck to the wall. 

  4. Hang Your Frame

    Last but not least, hang your frame on the wall! Make sure to press it firmly against the wall to ensure the picture hanging strips are securely stuck together.
