Comments about Swiss Corner Clips:
These corner clips provided a solution to a complicated hanging problem I was dealing with in my gallery. I have large acrylic prints that needed to be hung without the use of frames. My only issues with the clips is that they rely on nylon cords. These have a little give to them and no matter how good you are at measuring, you will most likely have to move the hook on the wall after you hang the picture. I hung a large number of acrylic prints and needed them to be at the same midline. It was a very painful and slow process because the slack/give in the nylon rope would change all the measurements.I will say that if you are hanging just a few items and they are not meant to be on the same midline, then this is a great product for you. The clips are very easy to install and they show very little in the front of the picture. Plus the price at Blick was the best deal I could find online.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I needed a quick fix to salvage an art project. The swiss corner clips were just that! The product presented well, was easy to install, and a good value for our need. I would recommend.
great framing device!

Follow the directions that come with the clips. They are super easy to use and a very affordable way to get things that are not standard sizes framed quickly.The clips seem flimsy at first but they are actually quite sturdy.
Just the thing!

I used these to display a series of 8 20"x30" paintings on poster board with 3/8" masonite backing. The hooks are very strong and study, the look was clean and professional, and it was a whole lot cheaper than framing.

Great...with some caveats
from Raleigh NC
I used these to hang some inexpensive posters in my daughter's room. Love the clean look...but beware, the cording will not be enough to accommodate 30x30 or 24x36...or anything with 120" perimeter. I had to buy my own cording to get enough to do the job. Larger jobs also tend to have gaps or bowing between the work and the glass on the long side...this will require using regular side clips as well. Additionally, there is a lot of tilt once hung (I used glass, not acrylic...but don't think that matters). I resolved this by adding a foam core block and velcro to the back top edge to make them more parallel with the wall. So, after a lot of trouble shooting, adjustment and "rigging"...they look great.

Swiss Clips for rimless picture frames
from Bentonville AR
these clips are easy to use and great when customers do not want a traditional picture frame. Good quality at a great price.

Worked for me!
I tried Swiss clips for the first time to present an exhibit of drawings without the price of frames.They worked very well for me. They are easier to use with glass than plexiglass. If plexiglass is used be sure to use a rigid back board or a thicker plexiglass paying attention to the amount of space you have in the clip. Now I have used them I will probably use them again. I tried a substitute (another brand) and they were nowhere near as good as these. The only tricky part for me was having to take them off a piece with a foam core backboard. Best done with a dull kitchen knife to ease the back spring corner off the board. Do-able but took a minute or two figure out this was my best option. And make sure you mark top on the back of your piece!
