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.

- Frame/Object Attachment : Hang Wire on Conventional Frame
Frame D-Ring (also formerly known as strap hangers) are the ubiquitous method for creating an attach point behind picture frames or any other objects to be suspended. The Frame D-Ring are made by a leading supplier of framing hardware industry. The Frame D-Ring can be placed on the center rear of any picture frames or two can be mounted, one on each frame side-rail.
Once installed, they may be used directly by our hanging hooks or a wire may be strung between two of them. When attaching Frame D-Ring to a frame that will be used on a hanging system, you might consider placing them very high on the side rails of the frame instead of the customary formula, 1/3 down from the top of the frame. This will help the picture frames hang closer to the wall. This is particularly appropriate if the frame will be strung with a hang wire. Also, if you elect to use a hanging wire on the rear side of a frame, and intend to use a hanging system, we recommend removing any slack from the hanging wire. Feel free to review How to, Part 1: Hang Framed Art and How to, Part 2: Manage Face Forward.
We offer three sizes of D-Ring Hangers. Please see the below table for compatibility with our hooks.
