The Problem - Frame Tilts to Left or Right
Large frames, typically 24 inches or wider, require a very sensitive balance to remain level and straight while hanging. Sometimes it is impossible to balance the frame because the frame, or contents within the frame, is slightly different on the left or right. This will cause an out of balance condition. Other times there is a hang point on the top center of the frame that is perhaps not exactly in the center of the frame.
The Solution - Level a Tilted Frame with Two Cables/Rods
The rule of thumb is that when frames are 24 inches and wider, it is better to use two cables/rods to balance the frame. When two cables or rods are implemented, the problem is avoided. But this easy hack is not limited to larger frames. You may use it on smaller frames as well.
No more do you have to look at your wall display and feel a bit "off kilter". Now you know how to fix frame tilt. Simply switch from a single to a double cable/rod hanging system.
