Ways To Hang Wall Clocks
Wall clocks can do much more than just tell time. They can add a focal point to a blank wall and a decorative touch to any room of your house. Before you can enjoy a lifetime of knowing what time it is, though, you need to follow the proper protocol to hanging wall clocks. Here are several ways to hang wall clocks for you. Find a wall stud from which to hang your clock. Rap your knuckles against the wall — a hollow sound indicates that you need to move to the right or left, while a higher, muffled sound indicates a stud. Draw a spot with a pencil where you are going to drill, over the stud. Drill a pilot hole into the spot you marked with an electric drill and a drill bit slightly narrower than the screw. Place a screw into the pilot hole and tighten it by turning it clockwise with a screwdriver a screwdriver drill bit.
Depending on the thickness of your wall and the weight of the wall clocks, a screw 1 to 3 inches long should suffice. The longer the screw, the more support you give the clock. The screw should stick out 1/4-inch or so. Slip the clock’s hanging hole over the head of the screw. If need be, straighten the clock out so that it hangs evenly.
