    Most of the walls in my house’s loft conversion slope up to an apex, at about 30° to the vertical. I’d like to “hang” some prints on them, even so; and I’d prefer not to have visible brackets and screws at the bottom.

    Any suggestions?

    I think I would try an interlocking Z system such as the Hangman

    Chris, that’s a pretty cool company with lots of solutions.  I need to dive into the site further.  Thanks for the link.

    Depending on the size/mass of what you want to hang, you could also consider 3M’s Command Strips. Think of it as a tape strip with velcro on one side and (non-marring) adhesive on the other. Basically you join two strips face to face, peel the backing off one side and stick it to the frame. You peel the backing off the other side and stick the frame to the wall. It’s a bit more complicated than that, but that’s the essence of it. Depending on the mass of the frames, given the angle of the wall you might need 2->X strips/frame.

    Thanks, all. I think a combination of the Z hangers at the top, to bear the weight, and something like the command strips at the bottom, to hold the lower end against the wall, should work. I’ll see what’s available in the UK.

    On the Z hangers I have, which are used for mirrors (woo hoo!), there is very little ‘play’ off the plane of the wall once the two pieces are engaged. Therefore hook & eye may well prove problematic as an addition since it is likely to engage too soon.
