Installation: Determine the wall type. If the walls are hollow gypsum or plaster or masonry use appropriate rawplugs, for wooden walls screw in direct. The screws should be 2" (never use a nail).
Determine the weight of the Art. If it is more than 10kg refer to hints and tips below (item 3) for other hanging options.
1. Insert the tag and pull cord. Insert the batteries. Pull the cord to check it works (wear ear protection when you do this). Reinsert the cord.
2. After drilling the hole and inserting rawplug if appropriate, insert the screw through the SmartHook and tighten by hand. Ensure it is vertical.
3. Hang the picture (using #3 or 4 braided wire) and ensure it is resting in the slot. Install the wire capture clips to give better strength against a theft attempt. (Hold the picture away from the wall as you attach each clip)
4. Once the art is balanced and level, gently pull the cord. The SmartHook is now active.
5. Pull the bottom of the frame out (keep tension on the hanger) and re-insert the pull cord. Remove the capture clips and lift the picture (towards the back and up).
1. Once activated put the pull tag somewhere safe but where you will find it.
2. For heavier art a combination of traditional hanging can be combined with SmartHook see below:
