She just came in, the issue I was having is she does not want a wire going across it. Strap hangers alone will hold it too close to the wall. Her solution, wire loops on each strap hanger to give it more freedom to lean.
Do wire loops from D-ring hangers and put a short piece of wood at the top to make it hang outwards.
OBTW, I personally think that the wire on the piece in the photo is WAAAAAAY to tight. Much stress on both the wire and the D-rings.
Check out the FACTS standard on hanging stuff with wire at www.artfacts.org click on "Standards"
Eric, I noticed that you used #5 wire which is rated for 35lbs as well as the closured D ring which are rated at 45lbs per set. With the Studio moulding weighing in at only 2.3lbs and the plate mirror at 14.834lbs plus the paper and hardware adding another .321lbs.....
Don't you think with a combined weight stress load of 17.555 on the fulcrum of 2/16.5 and a lateral load of 74grams that just possibly you should consider tightening the line tension just a bit more?
Wow, I guess I am learning a bit more than just posting photos!
I never really absorbed every catagory of the FACTS stuff. Shameful, I know. Thanks Greg for the reminder!
I am using 2 hooks (you can just see 'em in the second pic) BUT they are not far enough apart to get the ideal 60 degree angle on the wire. However - the wire is longer than it seems in that pic, steep angle and all.
And that's no ordinary 35 lb. #5 wire - it's Super SoftStrand #5 rated for 43 lb.!
