Slide-In Wall Buddies Hangers for metal sectional frames require partial disassembly of your frame to install the hangers. If you do not have prior experience assembling metal sectional frames, read the instructions tab before ordering this item for an explanation of what is involved in attaching the hangers to the frame.
- Place the frame
face-down on a blanket or soft surface.
- Carefully remove
the metal springs under the frame top rail and set these
- Loosen the set
screws on the steel corner plates at the top corners of
the frame and then remove the top rail by gently pulling
it directly back from the rest of the frame. Take care
not to let the side rails splay out when removing the top
- Remove the steel
from each end of the top rail.
- Insert the left
and right Wall Buddies Hangers into the channel of the
top rail and replace only the tapped corner plates on top
of the hangers. Discard the two back plates.
- Reassemble the
top rail into the rest of the frame. Be careful not to
damage the glass or allow debris to enter the frame.
Retighten the set screws on the tapped corner
- Reinstall the
metal springs under the top rail.
- Measure the
distance between the arrow marks on the left and right
- Nail the two
special Wall Buddies wall hooks into the wall, spaced
apart at this same distance and as level as possible. The
wall hook nails should be located on the wall
approximately 1 1/2" down from where you want the top of
the frame to be.
- Hang the frame
so that the sawtooth edges of each Wall Buddies Hanger
rests on the exposed shank of the nail inside the special
wall hooks. With a slight lifting motion, slide the frame
left or right to level it.
