Whether it’s giving your refrigerator a much-needed deep clean or finally making the space-saving transition from plastic to velvet hangers, certain home tasks — while necessary — can’t help but be frustrating (don’t even get me started on folding a fitted sheet). For some, one of the most dreaded tasks of all is hanging a picture on the wall. There’s a lot that can go wrong when hanging your photos and artwork, from improperly marking your hardware spots and losing your perfect position to a placement that’s anything but level. And when looking for solutions, you’re bound to come across countless pieces of advice as well as products that promise to be the be all end all problem-solver you’ve been looking for. While they may seem too good to be true, there’s one product that Amazon shoppers are touting as the real deal: the Hang-O-Matic All-in-One Picture Hanging Tool.
Designed to take the hassle out of hanging pictures, the idea behind the Hang-O-Matic is simple. The device features three essential tools needed to hang something on a wall: measuring tape, a level, and wall markers. To use, first line up each wall marker on the anchor points of your piece and lock them into place once set. Then, move the device to the wall and with the attached level make sure your marks are even and gently push the markers into the wall. You’ll be left with two perfectly marked spots for your hardware on the wall that not only line up exactly with your frame, but they’re also perfectly level! After that all that’s left to do is hang your picture — it’s really that easy.
Customers are RAVING about this product, with one writing, “I have no clue why or how my pictures ended up crooked after measuring and leveling so many times. It was quite frustrating and left my wall with lots of extra holes. Well, this tool changed ALL that! It makes it so easy to hang pictures…STRAIGHT…the FIRST time! A chore that used to take 30 minutes, now only takes five.” Another went on to say, “I couldn’t be happier with this purchase. It made every part of the hanging process crazy easy! All the functions of the hanging device worked flawlessly and smoothly, and I will never hang anything without using this again.”
The Hang-O-Matic All-in-One Picture Hanging Tool comes in at $14.98 making it an affordable must-have to add to your tool kit. So if you’re tired of crooked photos or don’t want to hide and patch tons of extra holes anymore, try this gadget out. Let’s just say I know what I’m gifting the new homeowners in my life!
