Here’s a series of photos and a testimonial

from Mark at Atomic Airbrush regarding a display gallery using Panelclip®. Looks pretty cool!

“Panelclip has totally changed the way I choose to hang things in my display gallery.  We are constantly removing and hanging the heavy picture frames and Panelclip has made it easy to do so. 

Installation is a breeze and the design of the hanging system makes it fool proof. Great product and great customer service as well!”

Ordering Q&A

Q: Will someone be available to answer any questions when I call for information?
A: During business hours we have an experienced knowledgeable person answer the phone. We will be glad to help you with any questions about your project and using our products.

Q: When I place an order, do I need to indicate the sizes of each part?
A: Yes, all Clips are ordered as a two-part hanging hardware system. When planning your order, you will need both a part for the wall and a part for the product that you are hanging.

Q: How many pieces do I need to order?
A: For example, if you buy an 8′-0 length of the trademarked hanging system VClipz®, or a custom-cut length of the trademarked hanging system VClipz®, you will also want to order a custom-cut length or our stock 2″ part for the product you intend to hang.

Q: How many pieces do I need to order when I purchase your 2″ pair?
A: When you order the stock 2″ pairs, you are automatically buying the two hardware parts you need—one for the wall and one for your product you are hanging. In most applications you will place the pair about 12” to 14” apart.

Q: What if I just want to try one pair out to see if I like how it works?
A: We have no minimum order and sending one pair or one foot is fine.

Q: What are your prices?
A: Due to the unstable prices of aluminum, we would like to have you call us at 503-232-1151 or 1-888-232-1151 for the latest pricing on our materials. When we do a quote for you, the prices will be good for 60 days from the quote.

Q: Can I order a part that is not a full foot, say 15-3/4”?
A: Yes. We will cut to any length you wish, including metric. Custom orders are always welcome and we are always happy to provide a quote for any purchase.

Artists and craftsmen love Brooklyn Hardware!

Inspired by nature, Laura Buchan has been using the trademarked hanging system Panelclip® for a couple years to install her beautifully carved wood artwork. She said she was first introduced to the system by another artist when he was hanging a 20′combination of art panels. “The trademarked hanging system Panelclip® system is so easy to use in gallery installations and to send home with the buyers. Once I have mounted the clips on the artwork, all they have to do is level the other clip and screw it into the wall. In fact, on some of my pieces I mount the clip flush in the wood so it literally hugs the wall.” To see more of Laura Buchan’s artwork, click here.

The Joinery in Woodstock area of SE Portland has been working with Brooklyn Hardware for years. In fact, the owners worked together on projects in the 70s and 80s and were especially thankful for the system when it was hot and the days were long.

An artist that is known for installation art in public spaces and commissioned pieces uses trademarked hanging system Panelclip® not just on location, but also in her studio when she is painting. It’s true, Laura Bender, has mounted the Panelclip® on her studio wall and rather than using an eisel paints on the canvas while it’s hanging in location. “I like how I can take a couple steps back to look at the painting in progress and know what it will look like on someones wall as well. It really is simple and effective. Just the way I love it!” –Laura Bender

The trademarked hanging system Panelclip®

In the 1960s, Charles Grant Company designed and manufactured the trademarked hanging system Panelclip® which is based on the french cleat. The clip system was used for many years to install paneling and projects. Others in the construction industry began to notice how quick their installation process went, as well its security, and wanted the  trademarked hanging system Panelclip® to use as well.

Soon craftsmen all over Oregon were asking about it and purchasing it for their needs as well. In 1994, Charles son Michael and his wife, now owner, Carol Grant, turned the product manufacturing into a full time business and began distribution all over the world.

Brooklyn Hardware, LLC now has three sizes—lightweight for artwork to heavyweight for signage. The trademarked hanging system Panelclip® is made with T6 aluminum providing the strongest material for secure installations.
