    A Picture Hanging Tool

    It is easy to hold up a picture against the wall while a significant other directs you to the correct location. But it is not so easy to figure out where to drive the nail to support the picture. This tool takes the guesswork out of the task. It works with both a hole in the frame and with a wire support.

    Yep held a picture up to the wall she said perfect then drive the nail hang the picture and NOPE not there. Pull the nail drive it again just maybe 1/2 inch up down left or right NOPE not there. Again and again until finally place nail in first hole YEP that's perfect. Mean while there are half a dozen holes around the nail. Better to build a bunch of easels and let her have to move them around to vacuum.
    I am just kidding by the way no actual walls were violated in the making of this post My Gal will say this looks like a good place for a picture then grab a hammer and where ever the nail happens to go is where the picture will remain until the wall falls down from all of the weight hanging on it
