Introducing the newest and most sophisticated picture hanging hook on the market today - The Cam Hook


The patented Cam Hook is the sleekest most effectively engineered quality picture hanging hook that has been manufactured to date. With input and suggestions from colleagues and customers alike we took the challenge of creating a picture hook that not only holds your artwork securely in place but also engineered it in such a way as to make it customer friendly and super easy to use with the lock-in-place release mechanism.

We are super excited to bring to market this amazing and practical hook. Here are just a few of the features.

Weight Based Tension From 3 Angles

The heart of the hook lies in the 3 stainless steel ball bearing encased in the center spindle. These bearings act in unison with the spring activated ergonomic push top. When pushed down the bearings are released allowing you to easily insert our new Twist-to-Lock perlon cords or steel cables. When released the bearings are activated and hold the cord or cable securely in place.

But wait, there's more! As you apply weight such as when you are placing a frame on the hook, the actual weight creates additional pressure upon the bearings creating a stronger tension which in turn holds even more securely. Other hooks do not have this function and when adding weight over time there is a tendency to slip down the cord or cable.

Quick Release Ergonomic Top

Unlike the Zipper hook that gets stuck when hanging heavier artwork over long periods of time making it sometimes difficult to release, the Cam Hook's quick release top works effortlessly no matter the weight or length of time it is activated. The Cam Hook was engineered in such a way that the mechanism for weight based tension is a separate function of the locking mechanism thus insuring a quick and effortless release every time.

A Variety of Cable/Cord Types and Thicknesses - Not a Problem!

Whereas the zipper hook and many other hooks will only work on 1.8-2mm cable thickness, the Cam Hook work on thicknesses as small as 1mm (micro cables) and up to 2mm. This greater versatility allows you to use our hook in a variety of situations without having to change the cords/cables which permits you to use your existing cords and cables.

Greater Weight Capacity on All Types of Cords

The 45 lbs weight capacity leads the industry in under channel track and rails. The weight capacity of this hook applies to both our Twist-to-Lock perlon cords and steel cables. This differs from other manufacturers as their weight bearing mechanism on perlon cords cannot sustain the same weight as the steel cables. Because of the Cam Hook's engineering design and weight based tension function there is no need to change cord types when a heavier picture frame or artwork is involved.

Shades Cam Hook Engineering Blow Up

Super strong, each will hold up to 45lb in weight on BOTH perlon cords and steel cables, double up to double the weight capacity. Choose quantity packet: single hook, 4 pack, 6 pack, 10 pack, or 20 pack.
