How to hang pictures on walls without nails: Step-by-step instructions

  1. Prepare the mounting surface and mounting bracket by cleaning both with acetone and allow to fully dry. Do not touch either surface with your hands or fingers after cleaning.
  2. Mark the location of the mounting brackets using a pencil at the desired height.
  3. Cut the adhesive tape to the maximum length of the mounting bracket and press the double-sided tape firmly onto the wall in the proper location and hold for ten seconds.
  4. Remove protective film from the tape and press the mounting bracket firmly onto the tape.
  5. Allow to set for 24 hours before installing the picture or mirror to the brackets and loading with weight.
