How to Hang Heavy Mirrors and Pictures on a Wall
In this video, we show how to use a special plastic anchor called a “wingit” to hang heavy items on drywall. You can hang heavy mirrors, pictures, other artwork, a projector screen, curtain rods, and many other heavy items with this anchor.
The trick to how it works is that it flares open behind the wall, anchoring itself against the back of the wall to hold your item securely in place. It can support up to 300 lbs!
Watch this video to see how wingits (winged anchors) work!

Leah, you’re the best! I love, love, love ya! You have encouraged me and given me hope to get through my DIY projects. You have taught me not to be afraid of using tools and that using the right tool, the right way is the secret to much success. Thank you for your dedication and sharing.
You’re welcome, Valerie, and thanks for writing! We love hearing that our videos have been helpful to you and got you working on your own DIY projects!
Leah, thank you so much for your very clear, how to do it videos.
What is the proper achor to use when installing a toilet paper holder on the side of a bathroom vanity? I have seen videos where people just use screws. Are anchors necessary?
Hi Diane, if the vanity is wood, you can just use screws. If by chance you have particle board, write me back, and I’ll recommend something.
Leah, I like your vidros, the easy to follow.
