Whether it is our rod system (or what others might call a Gallery System, French Rod System or simply a French Gallery System), a particular framed art will occasionally not behave when suspended from rods.
This is particularly true when the object is short in the vertical dimension, or if the frame is thick (from front to back). 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 Rod. In an unorthodox manner, this item will attach to the lower back surface of the framed art. The included Rod Guides will keep the frame from tilting forward. This ingenious design causes the center of gravity to be moved much lower in the frame and allows it to hang better on the wall with less tilt at the top. This assortment also includes two large bumpers. These protect the wall from the Rod Guides. The result is a framed art 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.
For best results, pair this product with of our Gallery Classic Hook.
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 rod, see our conventional Frame Stabilizer for Rods.
Depending on a large number of variables, this may, or may not, solve all issues with some hanging objects.
