The Head of a Bolt Could Make a Difference When Hanging on D-Rings

The Head of a Bolt Could Make a Difference When Hanging on D-Rings

This is a short but sweet article on the little things one can do to make one’s life a little easier. There are just a ton of things that take very little time to do, but can mean the difference between “I’m on” and “No, no, no, put it down my d-ring folded back, I need to reset.” So what are you looking at here? We had a really tall painting with a bit of heft to it, so we opted for small bolts (installed at just a bit of an angle) into our plywood backed walls. The bolt heads fit into the Ds we were using on the back of the painting, but there wasn’t much room for error. The Ds would fit over the bolt heads even if they were askew, but why suffer through that?! Take one extra second (literally) to position the side of the bolts vertically, giving yourself the easiest engagement with the Ds possible. All the little things we do matter, there’s probably two dozen decisions like this every day of deinstall and install. Go ahead and share yours…
