    Hanging larger 110 lb frame in drywall

    Hi all,

    Bringing this over from the email thread:

    I pretty much assumed we were faced with the worst possible scenario – 1/2” drywall with nothing behind it. With that in mind, I decided to go overkill with the anchors – 300 lbs, with drywall listed as a substrate for installation. Our self-leveling samoca (as our partnering university art museum calls them) clips (self-adjusting j hooks?) were rated for 100 lbs. We had our asbestos abatement team come in to drill the holes and install the anchors/hardware since our wall was “hot.” I got some muscle from our partnering museum and it went up without an issue in 15 minutes; leveling and all. Again, as a reference – the frame and painting was about 110 lbs (I think I initially thought 130 to be on the safe side) and hung between 2 D rings.
