Clips to Hold Mirror in Frame [Tools]

Adding the perfect mirror to any room can make all the difference, but unless it’s properly secured, it can be an unsafe hazard. Securing a mirror in its frame requires the proper clips and tools, but don’t worry—it’s easier than you think!

How to Secure a Mirror in a Frame

In this blog, we’ll discuss how to properly secure your mirror into its frame so that you can confidently create your dream room.

The Tools You Need

First, before securing your mirror in its frame, you must understand what tools and materials you will need.

Depending on the size of your mirror, you may need one or more of the following items: screws, metal L-brackets, corner bracket clips (available at most hardware stores), plastic washers, and wall anchors.

These components are essential for keeping your mirror securely in place.

Securing Your Mirror

Once you have your materials ready to go, it’s time to start!

  • Begin by attaching L-brackets to each side of the back of the frame using two screws per bracket.
  • Next, take two plastic washers on either side of each L-bracket screw. This will help protect the frame and the wall from any potential damage caused by tightening or loosening the screws over time.
  • Once that is done, attach corner bracket clips onto each corner bracket at each end of the frame with two screws per clip. The clips should fit snugly over each corner bracket so they do not slip or fall off.
  • Finally, drill wall anchors into each hole on either side of where your mirror will hang so that when you mount it, there is something substantial enough to hold up its weight without slipping or tearing out from the wall itself.

Depending on size and shape, there are several ways to mount a mirror into its frame; however, this method should work well for most standard mirrors sold in stores today.

By following these easy steps and using just a few simple materials from your home or any hardware store nearby, you can rest assured knowing that your masterpiece is safe and secure!

Good luck!
