    Peggy, I get my metal frames from American Frame and they only come with screw in wire mounts so I was surprised to read this. I haven’t dealt with snap in for many years. Glad you found a source close by – I doubt I could get those at Michaels (altho they carry the nylon coated wire, which I prefer)

      Hi Sandra, I usually get my metal frame kits from the local art supply store or online through the various art suppliers (Blick Art Materials; Cheap Joes, etc). These are the Nielsen frames, which is exactly what American Frame supplies. Good for American Frame for selling the framing with the screw hanger mounts; they’re much better. The snap in are inadequate.

      The point I was trying to make in the article is that I didn’t know there was better hardware. It was a case of not knowing what I didn’t know. I would have assumed the manufacturer would sell the product with adequate hardware. I even called Nielsen and customer support was not helpful…to the point of being clueless. I gather they don’t deal with retail customers at home trying to put together their frames with inadequate hangers.

      I want other metal frame newbies out their to know there is a better way! 🙂

      I DO so appreciate your comment Sandra. I didn’t know American Frame sold the metal frames with correct hardware. I will look at them for future framing needs! Thanks!
