Select the area on your wall where you would like the top of your frame to be placed. Measure down 2 inches from that spot to allow for the length of the WallBuddie. Mark your spot with a pencil. Place the first hook against the wall and hammer the nail through the holes. This will be at a downward angle. The WallBuddie hangers on your picture have arrows indented in them. Measure between the 2 arrows. Mark that measurement on your wall from the first hook you have hammered. Place the second hook against the wall and hammer the nail through the holes at a downward angle. You are now ready to hang your picture. Hold the picture higher than the hooks on the wall and slowly slide the picture down. It will rest on the nail that is between the slot of the hook. You are able to slide the picture to the left or right to get it exactly level. Any carpenter level can also be used if you so chose.
