Made of tempered steel, each nailess sawtooth has two pronged "legs" that enable it to be attached to a wood picture frame without screws or nails. The hardened finish allows the hanger to be hammered into position without deforming.
Nailess Sawtooth Hangers install very quickly--an important advantage if you have a lot of frames to hang. Except for very hard woods like oak or ash, pilot holes are usually not necessary.
1) Lay the frame face down on a blanket or soft surface.
2) The hanger should be installed centered left-to-right on the top rail, a little down from the upper edge of the frame.
3) The large sawtooth has one serrated edge which should face down.
4)Use a small hammer to tap the nailess sawtooth hanger in place.
5) Take care not to break the glass on the frame, if any, when hammering in a nailess sawtooth hanger.
6) In extremely hard woods, drill small pilot holes for the legs of the hanger.
7) When properly seated, the shoulders of a nailess hanger should rest on the surface of the frame rail, leaving approximately 1/8" gap between the back of the hanger and the surface of the rail.
8) Make sure that your nail in the wall is tight and secure before using it to hang the frame. Always use a headed nail (not a brad) and position the frame on the nail so that the nail is caught firmly on the sawtooth hanger.
