Found the following keyhole hangers and they are the type I need.
Have checked and Hafele will sell only packages of 100. Having goggled
over 1 hour and not finding any other suppliers, am turning to this
learned group. Does anybody know who else may have these hangers in
smaller quantities. Other type of keyhole hanger will not do. Thanks
I want this keyhole hanger for an oval oak mirror frame which is
1 1/2" wide. All the metal hangers that I've seen have screw holes
above and below the keyhole slot and are too long. Please send me the
link for the hangers you think I may use.
Now that we have some more information, it may turn out that the ones
I suggested might be a little too big. They require a 1.25" hole and
his frame is only 1.5" wide. That doesn't leave a lot of wood around
The ones that Vic linked to are only 1.06" in diameter, leaving a bit
more room around it.
I'm thinking the keyhole router bit might be the best suggestion.
Try this site and click on the Mini-Hanger in the center of the top
That's not your exact item, but they are round and require only a
drill and a few bits to install them.
Of course, if you are trying to avoid the use of any metal, then the
Department of Homeland Security might want to have a chat with you. ;-)
There is a key hole slot cutter router bit. Cheaper and many more uses
assuming you have not yet drilled the hole.
Plunge the bit and slide the router the distance desired.
making your keyholes in wood is not very hard. Make a template to
quickly line it up and plunge, move and shut.
not hard, if you had a lot to do a pedal for power and self aligning jig
would be perfect and fast.
I can't really see why 'other type of keyhole hanger will not do'. If it
fits flush into a drilled hole what else do you need of it? This one is
25mm and available in small quantities. You will have to work harder to get
them since the supplier is in Wales but with ebay many things are possible:
