Picture Hook Anchors

Picture Hook Anchors Packaging

Hang Wall Decor Quickly, Easily and Securely

Built-in hook for hanging paintings, prints, mirrors, and anything framed. Use also for telephone cable, household electrical wire, and TV/audio cable.

The TH® hook anchor, when used with a screw in hollow walls, holds 3x more than old-fashioned nail-in metal picture hooks. The weight of the picture rests on the screw, close to the wall, preventing pull-out. Corrosion-proof for hanging fixtures in humid areas. Works in hollow, thick, and solid walls.
