Picture Perfect

You’ve found the perfect artwork to fill your empty wall space, there’s just one last headache-inducing hurdle: the dreaded picture-hanging process. No matter how carefully you measure, you wind up with rogue pencil marks, extra nail holes, crooked frames, and uneven spaces between pictures. Sound familiar? We’ve all been there, including Mike Marks. After a particularly frustrating hanging project, Mike started brainstorming a better way. A contractor by trade, he invented a tool that makes it easy to align, level, position, and . . . hang it perfect. Hang It Perfect has a crossbar with a built-in level that aligns the top of the frame. Two adjustable arms run perpendicular to the crossbar to determine the perfect spot for nails/hooks. Lay your artwork face down on a flat surface, place the Hang It Perfect tool on the back, then tweak the position of the adjustable arms until it’s just right. Then move Hang It Perfect to the wall, level it, and press the end of each arm pin to leave a small dimple where the nail needs to go. You can also use the arms to evenly space groups of frames. Hang It Perfect really takes the hassle out of hanging pictures, mirrors, shelves, wine racks—you name it. We’re definitely hooked.

    Hello everyone, my name is Mike Marks. I invented the Hang It Perfect four years ago after struggling for over an hour just to hang a picture on the wall, and the darn thing-- it still came out crooked. Now four years later we have finished it and I am so excited to tell everyone about it. Not only does this tool simplify my life, everyone else is now hanging things like pictures, mirrors, wine racks and even flat screen TV brackets in 60 seconds as well. I'm here to answer your questions.

    The Hang It Perfect Tool looks like a great product, but it is almost impossible to get it in less than a week or two. When I tried to talk with someone at the Daily Grommet I simply got voice mail. When I called Home Depot they estimated it would take 1 1/2 weeks to get the item. Amazon lists one for $50 without a timeframe. It's just too difficult to purchase this product. You really need more responsive outlets.

    does the "Hang it Perfect" find where the wood beam is behind the drywall? Since I have some pretty big paintings, I would like the nail to be nailed on a wood beam than just the drywall.

    What a great tool! Took a little bit to figure it out, but I've got it now! Hung 4 pictures that I was dreading putting up, in all of 30min...what a relief! I did find that as great as this tool is, it's still easier with two people for the big items! But this is hands down a wonderful and useful invention...THANK YOU!!
