Hanging picture frames

Hey, this is <Vics-Salem392> i changed name cause my girlfriend logs on to this site sometimes also <Leslie>. but anyways we have a question. We do not want to mess up our walls with holes and such, what other kinda ideas to hand picture frames so when we remove them it will look like nothing was there?



Thanks
Vic

I like the plastic holders/hooks that use sticky-tape that are removable. They hold strong, come off easy, and leave no trace. They can be had at any home improvement store or Mart.

They make pic hangers, and hooks for just about anything. I think 3M or Scotch makes them...

After 18 months, we haven't hung anything on the walls yet, but I'd probably go with Jolly's idea.

We're pretty fussy about that too Vic, nothing worse than a million nail holes. We use the 3M hooks that you just pull the tab on to release them. They come in different weight ratings and they install like a snap. They're not exactly the most attractive things if exposed but the wife hides them quite well with kinda Martha Stewartish flair, but not too bad. Beats a finish nail at least.

Tell Leslie to not be shy and say hi when she's on.

I use industrial velcro similiar to this to hang clock and several frames and have never had any to fall.

I thought about the removable picture hooks mentioned earlier but the pictures
will bounce off the walls so they must be removed and stowed and re-hung each
trip.
Had not thought of the velcro and that is an option but --will the velcro itself be
removable one day if you desire???

Maybe we just bought cheap ones but all the plastic hooks we bought fell off. I thought maybe it gets too hot when we are not there. I like the industrial velcro idea.....

Yes, it is removable.
When I upgraded to the 5th Wheel I now have, I removed all my wall items from my old TT and you could never tell anything had been there.

I would go with the 3M Removable Velco Strips.(Each strip supports 3 pounds) I have hung several pictures with it. You can find it at Home Depot. There is no need to try and balance the frames on a hook. Plus if you put it on the top and bottom of the frame, you don't have to wory about them falling off while driving.
