Hanging a picture on a wall might seem like a simple task at first, but if you’ve ever had to do it yourself you know how difficult it can be to adjust the frame on the wall just right and in a way that will leave the wall not looking like Swiss cheese in the process. Before drilling a hole in your wall you have to take into account the length of the wire that holds the frame as well as other measurements, but thanks to a man named Dean Greve you no longer have to worry about any of that.
Dean Greve has just invented a fully adjustable picture hook and by fully adjustable I mean it literally- you can move your picture frame left or right and up or down to adjust your picture perfectly in the position where it needs to be.
What’s really cool about this little picture hanger is the fact that it’s made entirely out of recycled plastic! (well, not the screws).
Picture hanger for gallery wall
The usefulness of this picture hanger might not be that obvious at first, but imagine for a moment hanging multiple picture frames on a gallery wall or a grid layout. Without having to measure anything you can simply adjust your pictures so they are evenly separated from each other. This invention is literally a godsend for anyone suffering from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (i.e. a perfectionist like me).
Adjustable picture hook
You can get all sorts of different picture frame hooks from your local hardware store, but they’re all basically just fancy looking nails that have absolutely no special functions. You just nail it to your wall and hope to get it right the first time. With Dean’s latest invention your life just got a little easier. You can now adjust your frames, move them up or down, left or right and separate them evenly on a gallery wall without having to drill another hole in your wall.
