Ready to use, just attach to back of plate. Wire hangers are coated with vinyl or plastic coating (brass) to protect your plate while on display.
Snap one gripper over top edge of plate. Stretching springs, snap ramining gripper over oppsoite edge of plate; adjust to fit tightly. Springs should be taut.
Bending the hang tab away from the plate will make it easier for you to engage the nail when hanging the plate.
