Framers Points & TabsFramers points and tabs are commonly used in picture framing to hold the backing board, mount, artwork and glazing into the picture frame. The tabs and points are pushed into the side of the frame rebate. This can be done by manual tools or by a specialised points driver (tab gun). Hardened points/tabs are more permanent, while flexible tabs offer enough rigidity to hold the backing board, mount and glazing in place whilst offering the option of bending the tabs when you want to have the flexibility to remove the backing to change an artwork in the picture frame. Turnbuttons offer an alternative solution to flexible tabs/points.
