This is the wonderful invisible plate hanger, made in England, that allows you to hang a plate (or other object like a tile or bowl) on the wall without any hardware showing to detract from its beauty. These discs are completely removable in warm water (even after many years) and will do no harm to your plates. Traditional wire hangers can chip the edges.
It is important to follow the directions on the back of the card exactly, though it's an easy process. I have used these for many years on my extensive Blue & White plate collection with no problems, even in the kitchen, where they've been subjected to steam.
This listing is for one 4" (100 mm) Disc. It will hold a plate up to 12" (300 mm) in diameter. If you need more than one of this size or any combination of the 3 sizes I have available (3", 4", 5 1/2"), please email me and I'll create a special listing for you.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THE INVISIBLE PLATE HANGER:
Will the DISC Hangers work to hang wall tiles?
Disc hangers work on all fired materials, such as unglazed backs of wall tiles and terracotta. Note: Plaster of Paris is not that strong, and may give way under its own weight. Consequently, even though the Disc Plate Hanger sticks well, we do not recommend its use on Plaster of Paris.
Can you use DISC Hangers to display china and porcelain bowls?
Yes. You cannot display these using traditional wires, but, you obtain a stunning 3D effect by hanging bowls using the Discs.
Do the plate hangers work with glass plates?
The transparency of glass items does not generally lend itself to display by Discs, but some glass objects display beautifully. However, if the glass is not transparent, then the plate hangers form a strong bond with the glass. Also, if the lips of the plate are not transparent, you can use two smaller hangers on the lips, and attach them with picture hanging wire. Then attach the picture hanging wire to a picture hook on the wall.
Do the plate hangers work on copper, brass, and silver plates?
In addition to these metals, other metals may be acceptable, but you need to check these on a case by case basis. Weight is the important factor, as the diameter guide on the provided instructions is for china and porcelain.
Can I hang objects heavier the 7 lbs?
Yes. Two Discs connected by a strong cord or wire may be used to display heavier objects. (You can adopt this same "picture hanging" approach for hanging awkward shaped items or orientation sensitive items.) The above weight limits are very conservative. They are based on the strength and integrity of the cloth and Dee-Rings, not the bond strength between the glue and the surface object's surface.
Can you use the Adhesive Plate Hangers to hang mirrors?
Some people hang mirrors, however, success depends on the "silvering" materials used on the back of the mirror glass. We do not guarantee success. You can try this at your own risk.
Can you use the hanger for wooden decor?
The disc hangers work to display unvarished wooden articles and hardboard backed pictures. The Discs stick to some varnishes, but not others (the same applies to paint). We recommend customers try it, and if it does not stick to the varnish, remove it. The water soluble glue does not stick to vegetable oils, such as Linseed. Anything "oiled" will reject the glue.
I want to display my plates, but use them on special occasions. Is the plate usable with the DISC attached?
Although we do not recommend this, the plates are usable with the disc attached. If you plan to use the plate with the disc attached, make sure you do not get the disc wet. Rinse/clean only the front of the plate with cool water. Always perform the pull test (pull firmly on the plate hanger) before rehanging the plate.
My plate has writing or a label on the back. How can I use your plate hangers without covering the writing or destroying the label?
To avoid covering writing on the back of your plate, use two smaller hangers attached to the lips of the plate. String picture hanging wire between these two smaller hangers, and then attach the plate to a picture hook on the wall. Make sure the the two hangers support the weight of the plate.
Are there any items on which to avoid using the DISC hangers?
Some manufacturers paint the back of plates on the top of the glaze or fired surfaces. We recommend that you locally remove the paint on glass or porcelain. as the bond between the paint and the plate is often inadequate to suspend the weight of the plate over a long period.
Very Important: The manufacturer does not recommend using the discs on plastic, acrylic, or melamine material, however, some people have had success with these materials. You are welcome to try the plate hangers on your plastic, melamine, or acrylic plates, but we do not guarantee success and you do so at your own risk. We do not recommend the use of the hangers with iron chargers. No matter the application, you must adequately prepare the article.
