Arrow hang pictures on cement wall (from ceiling?)

i have a cement wall in my living room (it has pant over it) and i need to hang 5 pictures on it (all level). i am wondering what kind of suggestions you would have, it must leave little damage (no drilling holes all over the place) because i am currently renting.

my options are to either hang it from the wall (maybe an adhesive or something) or from the ceiling (gallery style) i searched around the internet and could not find any ceiling hanging mechinisms.

the pictures will be 16x20 framed and contain glass, so it needs to hold some, but not a ton, of weight.

For a web purchase try doing a search for "gallery display equipment" which should yield some sites like this:


In my area these types of gallery devices are available at better frame shops.

The old saying, "you have to break a couple of eggs to make an omlet" apply here. Unfortunatly, you will need to either make a few holes, or use an adhesive (which could be messier and worse from a rental situation). Here are some thoughts:
1) I know 3M makes some ahesive based hooks they claim are removable after any period of time. They are called command. They have a little tab that you pull that releases the adhesive at a later date. I cannot verafy that they work or not. Check a local hardware store or big box store. 3m website to see them.

2) If you want a more permanent solution, talk to your landloard and get permission to put up a gallery hanging system. You may have to leave it when you go. A great system can be found at http://www.artdisplay.com/index.cfm?...nging%20System

Good luck

Thumbs up Picture hook

Hey depending on your frame and size, you can try the Multihook Maxi hook. Multihook Systems make a good hook which uses a 3M tape, very strong. I have removed them in my place and they left no damage. There was a but of residue but it came away with a pencil erasor. Give them a go, they have a web site and can buy on line I think.


Hope that helps, Calvin.
