Interlocking cleats, also sometimes called Z-bar or hanging cleat, are used to hang heavy picture frames, mirrors or panels securely and flush against the wall. Cleats are sold by the pair--one cleat mounts to the back of the picture, the other mounts to the wall.



  • Cleats are made from 0.06 extruded, mill-finish aluminum. 
  • Holes are 2" apart on center, which allows for multiple points of attachment on artwork and walls. 
  • Round holes hold firmly and will accommodate up to a #10 screw.
  • Typical installation uses 9 #6x1/2" screws to attach cleat to frame and 9 #8x1" screws plus anchors to attach the second cleat to the wall. 
  • Generally, cleats should be at least 4" narrower than the picture being hung. This allows for easy centering as the picture frame can be shifted back and forth.
  • Picture frames hang flush to the wall with approximately 1/4" of space.
  • When hanging very heavy pieces, a second pair of cleats can be used at the bottom of the picture for additional support. 
  • Can be used with locking t-screws for a highly effective security installation.
  • Cleats are commonly used to install hard-to-hang items such as heavy mirrors, signage, and headboards.
