How to Use Hang-it:

1) Hang a picture-frame wire on the nail protruding from both sides of the tool.
2) Hold it with the frame up to the wall where you want to hang your frame.
3) When it's where you want it, push in on the frame and the protruding nail marks a small hole in the wall. This shows you where you will need the place your wall hanger (You can ask a friend or your partner to tell you when it's just in the correct spot or you can use tape to mark where the top of the frame needs to be).
4) Put a nail or wall hanger in the wall and hang your picture on it.
Now you’re done and with only one hole in the wall to patch when you move (instead of eight)!

I've been making the Hang-it tool for some time using my laser engraver to cut them and to mark them, but it's a bit time consuming. I'd like to use my CNC router to reduce the cutting time. To do this I need to buy materials to make a vacuum holding table that will hold down the wood while its being cut. I also need to buy a suitable vacuum with plumbing, valves and gauges.
 
I think anyone who likes to decorate a space with pictures could use this tool or knows someone who could appreciate getting it as a house-warming gift.

Take a look at the rewards on the right, any pledge is appreciated and will get me closer to my goal.

Thank you.

FAQ

  • To answer your question regarding the weight holding capacity of the Hang-It tool I just did a quick test using my shipping scale to find the weakest point of the tool. This simple test wasn't good enough to give any real data but I was able to lift about 30lb's, the head of the brass nail was slightly bent. So to be safe I will say that the Hang-it tool can hold 25lb's.

  • I thought if I added a hole people could hang the Hang-It up somewhere when its not being used, this may help them find it when its needed.
