I used to hate hanging objects, like power strips, that have hidden T-slots on the back. No matter how carefully I measured, I could never get the mounting screws in the right place on the wall. Then I realized that I could make a perfect full-size copy of the pattern on standard 8-1/2 by 11-in. paper using my scanner and printer (a photocopy machine would work, too). I taped the pattern where I wanted to mount the power strip, drilled the holes and set the screws. Shazam! It worked perfectly.

1. Simply put a little dab of toothpaste right on the end of the hook.

2. Take your picture and hold it up where you want it without touching the wall.

3. Once it is where you want it, gently tap the frame against the wall. You will leave a little toothpaste mark on the wall.

4. Hammer your nail where the toothpaste mark is

5. Wipe toothpaste of the wall

6. Hang your picture perfectly 😉
