Keyhole hangers are ideal for displaying lightweight wall items such as plaques, signs, cabinets and shelving. Both heavy-duty and standard keyhole hangers provide a flush fitting that gives the hanging object a floating appearance on the wall. Kits include metal keyhole plates, plastic wall anchors, pan-head screws and, in heavy-duty kits, washers for added durability. Inexpensive and easy to install, keyhole hanger kits come in a variety of sizes and types, depending on the brand. Most kits include two wall anchors, four shorter pan-head screws, two longer pan-head screws and two keyhole plates.
