Kwik Hanger


Size: 10 Pack ($0.39 Each)

About the product

Kwik hangers are light-duty hangers that attach to foam board by four sharp metal prongs on its underside and an arrow-point anchor in the center. Foam board metal hangers are designed to hang posters or similar items mounted on foam board, (foam core board) or other lightweight backing board but are not framed.

  • Press-in metal hanger for foam board with a 3/16" minimum overall thickness

  • Measures 1 1/2" long and 1/2" wide

  • Holds 1 lb (one hanger) to 2 lbs (two hangers)

  • Best for hanging foam board with wire


  1. Lay the foam board face down on a clean, hard surface. 

  2. Mark the position of the Kwik Hanger on the back of the foam board with a pencil. 

Note: Do not use foamboard metal hangers on any board less than 3/16" thick or the hanger prongs will penetrate through to the front surface, nor on hard-faced foam board such as Gatorboard/Gatorfoam which the hanger prongs cannot penetrate. 

  1. Push the Kwik Hanger down and forward simultaneously using your thumb and forefinger until the underside of the hanger is fully flush against the board’s surface.

  2. Press down on the Kwik Hanger's arrow-point center anchor with the tip of a flathead screwdriver or similar blunt object to lock the hanger in place.

  3. Hold down the locked portion of the hanger in place, then bend the upper portion back slightly, raising it to ¼ inch above the board.

  4. If using two Kwik Hangers, place each on its own picture hook to keep foamboard-mounted art level when hung.

  5. If you are using picture wire in combination with Kwik Hangers, put 2-3 inches of sturdy tape crossways over the locked section of each hanger to help hold it in place.

  6. To remove a Kwik Hanger, wiggle it until it loosens, then pull it out. Discard the used hanger and do not reuse it.
