Picture Frame Joining Hardware

We stock a selection of hardware that is can be used to join or hold picture frames together. V-nails (vnails) are used in the picture framing industry to join the metre corners of the frame together. Framers points and tabs are used to hold the glass, artwork, mount and backing board in place by being pushed or fired into the frame rebate. Turnbuttons can be used to do the same when the backing board is flush with the frame backing. Picture frames can be reinforced / strengthened by use of various straight and cornered plates and brackets.

Picture Frame Joining

Picture frame metred (45 deg) corners are held together by framing pins or v-nails which are pushed in from the underside, closing the mitred joint, which should also be glued together.

Picture frame mitre joins can sometimes come apart, especially on unglued or older frames. This can happen with age or if the frame is perhaps dropped or knocked. Fortunately you can reinforce damaged or loose frame corners with L-shaped picture frame corner reinforcement plates. They come in brass plated (small) and nickel plated (medium and large) styles. They are attached to the frame corner easily by using small screws.

Framers points are used to hold the backing board in place which holds everything else in place too! The points can come in flexible tabs, semi rigid tabs, triangular tabs, and push in points.

Turnbuttons are also listed in this category. They are commonly used in place of framers points/tabs. They are screwed in place , and can swivel into place holding backing boards in place, and can swivel out so pictures can be easily changed. They come in nickel and brass plated varieties and three different sizes.
