Frames more than 24" wide will benefit from an additional mounting point at the bottom of the frame--one at each corner of the bottom rail rather than just one at the center of the bottom rail--four mounting points total for the frame. This extra hardware is optional, but adding an additional mounting point will make larger frames more stable on the wall as well as more secure.

A thin, long-handled crescent wrench can be used instead of a Security Wrench to lock or unlock frames, but we all know that having the right tool for the job makes all the difference. The Security Wrench works with all of security hardware that we offer.  Without it, wall surfaces tend to get scuffed, fingers pinched and nerves frazzled.If you do not already have one on hand, it is strongly recommended that you purchase at least one Security Wrench to facilitate the installation of...

Lock-In Security Hangers for wood or metal frames attach pictures to the wall at both the bottom and the top rails of a frame. This multipoint locking system provides extra security but also requires a fair degree of precision when installing the hardware.

Wood frames, on the other hand, require steel mounting plates to be attached to the back side of the frame to connect with the Lock-In wall hardware. Three wood frame mounting plates and the screws to attach them are included in the wood frame version of the Lock-In Security Hanger.

Metal picture frames do not need any hardware to be placed on the frame itself--the channel on the back side of the metal frame accepts the Lock-In wall hardware.

Larger frames (frames more than 24" wide), will benefit from an additional mounting point at the bottom of the frame--one at each corner of the bottom rail rather than just one at the center of the bottom rail--four mounting points total for the frame. This extra hardware is optional, but adding an additional mounting point will make larger frames more stable on the wall as well as more secure.

The Security Wrench makes locking and unlocking your art much easier. A thin, long-handled crescent wrench can be used instead of a Security Wrench, but the job is made much easier and goes faster with this special tool.

Using Lock-In Hangers on Slanted or Angled Walls
Lock-In Hangers may be also be used to hang frames on slanted or angled walls (attic walls, walls under roof eaves, etc.) so that the frames are held flush to the wall.

The hanging process can get a little tricky on a slanted wall because you are working against gravity--a second pair of hands is usually needed--but once the frame is properly secured it will be held in place against the wall surface.

Because the Wall Brackets used at the top of the frame will not be quite as secure on a slanted wall as on a normal wall, for additional safety we recommend adding one of our Extra T-Lock screw sets for either wood frames or metal frames at the bottom of each frame when hanging pictures on any slanted or angled wall. This will provide two locking points at the bottom of the frame instead of just one.

You can also use two, three or four or these same Extra T-Lock sets by themselves to hang a frame on a slanted wall. Keep in mind, however, that if you use this method you will need to measure and install the hardware in the wall very precisely since no alignment adjustment will be possible afterwards.
