Inspect the front of the frame to see that the corners are aligned correctly. Secure your artwork by inserting the spring clips between the frame edge and the backing. When dismantling the frame for any reason, be sure and remove the spring clips before opening the corners.

Slide one euro hanger into each of the side rails. Make sure they are evenly spaced from the top rail and tighten the screws.

Loop the wire (not included) twice through both hangers and then twist it to secure it in place. Place the bumper pads on the back bottom corners of the frame, where they meet the wall. Your frame is now ready to hang.
