If you’ve ever tried to hang anything on the wall, you know it can be a frustrating task that feels impossible to do well.
First you have to make sure the nails are in the correct place, then you have to try and hook the frame to the nails, which usually involves a lot of Number of mistakes.
Once primed, begins the seemingly never-ending process of making sure it’s straight.
You make some adjustments, take a step back and evaluate and think, well… still not quite right. Then, you do this about 10 more times until you give up and think that’s it.
Luckily, a smart person online has shared an exciting trick that changes the frame hanging game as we know it.
It involved little more than a humble piece of tableware.
According to Instagram page @tommyigoe, the forks help you hang your frame perfectly every time.
The following is the specific operation method.
After driving the nail into the wall, grab the fork and wedge it upside down on the nail so the back of the fork is facing the wall.
The tines of the fork should hug the nail tightly so the nail cannot move.
Next, using the forks as guides, lift the frame over the forks and down onto the nails. Then, remove the fork and voila!
Your frame will hang in seconds.
@tommyigoe captioned the video: “Let’s find the people who thought of this and let them solve all the world’s problems!”
“This is the next level”
Comments were mixed with awe and shock, as many couldn’t believe how simple it looked.
“Gosh, how many times have I had to contort to hide behind a painting!” one person said.
Another joked: “One video at a time erodes my ‘manliness’ confidence.”
A third said: “Damn, this is the next level.”
“This is definitely a game changer. A few weeks ago I spent a few minutes trying to hinge some frames to hooks on the wall,” commented others.
“I’m a contractor and I’m definitely going to try this,” concluded another.
