I have gone brain dead!
I tried searching the internet but can’t find what I need.

What do you call the hardware used to secure a picture in a frame?

I have some frame parts cut and ready to assemble. I also have several packs of plexiglass and cardboard back to support the picture. But I can’t figure out what I need to keep the pic in the frame. Most frames come with something that just slides over to hold the pic. That is what I am looking for.

Sorry for the dumb question.
Your help appreciated.
Thanks
Mike

Depending on the frame design, I’ve used something simple like glazier points. I just push them into the inside edge of the wood frame (after the glass, picture, & cardboard back are in) with a flat-blade screwdriver or a putty knife.

If I understand your question right, this is what I use: http://www.leevalley.com/US/Wood/page.aspx?p=52624&cat=1,43293

You can also look at their site for other ideas. Some people use the window glazing points. I tried it once and bent so many I decided to spend the money for the tool.

Those are good ideas. I plan to make at least one frame for my step-daughter and then mail it to her so I was hoping to find something that would allow the picture to be mounted later. If not, she knows how to use a screwdriver.

Thanks.

Edit: Found them!

Thanks rkober
