Frames are traditionally prepared with a hang wire on the rear. This wire is often longer than it need be. There is slack in it by some inconsistent amount. When hung from a hanging system, this standard frame preparation will frequently cause the top of the frame to hang away from the wall, what we call face forward.

Occasionally, a particular framed art simply will not behave when hanging from a hanging cable system. This is particularly true when the object is short in the vertical dimension, or the frame is thick or very light. What will happen is that the top of the framed art will tilt away from the wall. To diminish this negative effect in this situation we offer our Counter Weight Stabilizer for Cable. In an unorthodox manner, this item will attach to the lower back surface of the frame. The included Cable Guides will keep the frame from tilting forward. This ingenious design causes the center of gravity to be moved much lower in the framed art and allows it to hang better on the wall with less tilt at the top. This assortment also includes two large bumpers. These will push-out the bottom of the frame so it comes away from the wall and more inline with the upper edges. The result is a frame that responds in a more pleasing way.
Not compatible with aluminum frames or other frames too small to accept screws needed to mount supplied components. Other screws may be substituted in place of those supplied.
Only used when a wall object is hanging from two cables – one at each of side of the frame. For frames hanging from a single cable, see our conventional Frame Stabilizer for Cables.
