Hanging Clocks on High Walls

    • 1). Tap the wall in the approximate location you would like to hang the clock. A hollow sound indicates the lack of a wood stud behind that spot, while a thud shows you found a stud. Continue knocking on the wall until you find a stud support. Alternatively, use a stud finder and listen for the beep.

    • 2). Mark a faint line on the wall to show where you discovered the stud. Clocks can be surprisingly heavy hanging on the wall, especially if they are knocked into, if the clock needs to be adjusted or even if a door is slammed, causing vibrations. Such movement can cause a clock to fall down if it isn't hung from a nail anchored into the wood frame behind the wall.

    • 3). Hold the clock against the wall to appraise the effect. Raise or lower it, as necessary, to find the spot where it looks best. On some high walls you may not be able to lower it to eye level, in which case you can raise it only as much as you need to. If the wall ends at face level, for instance, raise it enough to look centered and pleasing to sight.

    • 4). Drive a long, thick nail or large, heavy screw into the wall at the appropriate spot, using the hammer or screwdriver. Feel the nail or screw bite into the wood. If the wall is concrete or brick, drill a hole with an electric drill and masonry bit before inserting a screw.

    • 5). Test the mount to ensure it can hold the clock. Grab it and try yanking it straight out or bending the nail or screw up or down. If the mount resists, it's stable enough to hang your clock.

    • 6). Insert the nail or screw into the hanging location on the clock. Most clocks have a hole that fits over the nail or screw head; some may have a bracket. Adjust the clock to complete installation.
