Hi, my name is Hersh Litvack
and welcome to this short video on how to hang a picture at the right height.
For many years I’ve gone into so many properties and in most cases, pictures are hanging a
little higher than they should be. So in about 60 seconds I am going to show
you how to do it and get it exactly at the right height.
Use your nose to mark the height of the picture so it makes it really easy when I . Take the
tape measure and measure 63 inches. On me that is to my nose, but find out where 63
inches hits you on your body – your forehead, your chin and wherever it is that is how you
are going to do this next step. So remembering that 63 inches is my nose,
I am going to hold the picture up with a pencil in my hand and I’m going to get it to about
25% or one third of the height. And there’s my nose touching the picture and
that is about 25% of the entire length of the picture.
So I just push my body on it a little bit, take the pencil and make a little mark and
I turn the picture around. I hold up the wire that comes across the back
and I measure up. On here it shows about 5 1/2 inches.
I take the tape measure and from where the mark is I go down 5 1/2 inches and mark it. Then I take a picture hanger. One little tip:
people see the mark and then they put the nail in the mark to hang the picture and then
the picture will actually hang below that. Make sure that the bottom of the picture hanger
is on the mark you made and hammer it in. Little trick: take your hand and put it backwards
against the wire and this way you can feel where the hook is.
It hangs really easily. Slide it over, get it level and done.
Hanging a picture at the proper height in less than 60 seconds. I hope this helps.
