Specifications: Hardwall Anchored Picture Hooks

On this page we offer six different hooks for hanging pictures on hard surface walls (most commonly concrete, brick or cinderblock). All require drilling a 3/16" to 5/16" diameter hole into the wall using a drill equipped with a masonry bit.

In the case of lead and plastic anchor hooks (HWR-200, HWR-201, HWR-202, HWR-203), after the hole is drilled the anchor is inserted into the drilled hole. The picture hook is then attached to the wall by running a screw through the hook and into the anchor. As the screw is tightened, the anchor expands inside the drilled hole, creating a secure hold on the screw while the screw's head holds the hook in place against the wall.

Lead anchors are stronger than plastic anchors, but more expensive. In many applications a plastic anchor will be sufficient, but if you want extra insurance, use a lead anchor hook.

In the case of another hook we offer (HWR-204), no anchor is necessary; a special concrete screw cuts its own thread in the drilled hole. This system is very strong, especially in concrete and concrete block walls.

In our final choice (HWR-205), the drive nail anchor is first inserted through the hook and then set into the drilled hole by hammering the self-contained nail into the anchor. Drive nail anchors are very difficult to remove once installed. This can be a good thing if you want to prevent tampering.

Please note that for the most commonly used hardwall anchor types, lead and plastic, we offer a small and a large version of each to accommodate pictures of different size/weight.

The drill hole sizes required for each type of hook are listed below. You can buy masonry drill bits from us above if you don't have them on hand already. If you have a lot of pictures to hang with anchored hooks, a more expensive carbide tipped drill bit would be a worthwhile investment. Better hardware stores usually carry these.

You will need a decent power drill to install anchored hooks. Low-end battery powered drills often aren't strong enough for the job. Contractor-grade battery models are better. An ordinary quality AC-powered drill is usually fine. Make sure the chuck on your drill will accept 5/16" diameter bits if you need to drill a hole that size.

Whenever possible, drill into a mortar joint for anchors rather than into the masonry material itself. Mortar is softer and less likely to crack. It is also easier to repair and disguise a patched hole in a mortar joint.

ALWAYS wear eye protection when working with hardwall anchors, especially when drilling holes or hammering.

Lead is a toxic chemical. Keep lead anchors away from children and pets.
