Note: The Studio Mirror should be installed by a licensed tradesperson. If you’re in Perth, we recommend The Hangmaster. Roger and his team offer a cost-effective and stress-free service and come highly recommended. 

If you're located outside of Perth and looking for some assistance, try searching for ‘hanging service Sydney, or “picture hanging Melbourne’’ for your city to find your local professional.

If you want to tackle it yourself, below are some handy tips to keep you on the straight and narrow. Please note, this is a general installation guide and there are many factors involved that can alter the installation method of your mirror. 

A step-by-step guide for hanging your mirror:

  1. Wear gloves, or take off any rings before handling the mirror. The frames can be easily scratched during unboxing and installation by rings, so please remove them first!
  2. Work out the perfect positioning for your mirror.
  3. Once you have the height worked out, mark the wall with a pencil where the top of the mirror will be. Measure the distance from the top of the mirror to the top of the keyhole hook position.
  4. Draw a horizontal line on the wall the same distance from the top of the mirror, to the keyhole hooks you just measured. Grab a piece of masking tape long enough to go between the two hooks on the rear of the mirror and tape them to the hooks on the rear, (ensure the tape is tight).
  5. Mark out the two holes on the tape. Make sure you mark the hole at the same distance from the edge of the tape on both sides. It's easiest if you mark the middle of the tape on each end. Place the tape on the lower horizontal line on the wall and you are now ready to drill.
  6. For plasterboard installation, skip to point 9 below. For brick wall installation, you’ll need the appropriate wall plug. For our smaller mirrors, you can get away with the standard Ramset Green Wall Plugs, but for anything larger we recommend something more heavy-duty like the Ramset RamPlug Nylon Anchor Plugs.
  7. Using the appropriate sized masonry drill bit for your purchased wall plugs, drill the holes through the masking tape marked out positions, ensuring you drill deep enough for your purchased wall plugs to fit in easily.
  8. Insert your wall plugs tapping them in gently with a hammer, and screw in a 10g-sized screw until its head is sitting 5mm off the wall. Repeat on the other side.
  9. For Plasterboard installation, use Wallmates appropriate for the weight of the mirror you are installing. Use a stud finder to ensure there are no studs behind your screw location. Screw them into the plasterboard, and then screw in your heavy duty 10g sized screw until its head is sitting 5mm off the wall. Repeat on the other side. 
  10. Gently manoeuvre the mirror until both screw heads are in the larger hole. Slowly lower the mirror until both screws are in the top part of the keyhole hook. You can test this by pulling on the mirror. If it comes away from the wall, it is not low enough in the hook! If it’s a little tight, you can gently push down on the mirror from the top to ensure it's locked in.

Care Instruction
To clean the mirror, do not spray anything directly onto the glass. Even window cleaner. A clean microfibre cloth is all you need, but if you have something stubborn to remove, apply the spray to the cloth, clean the stubborn area, and buff it off with the microfibre.
