I love my dear wife, but she can be a real asshole sometimes. If I get out of bed in the dark to go to the bathroom, I stumble through the pitch black room, navigate the gaping maw of the pile of 57 shoes she never puts away that reside on my side of the bed, silently lift the lid, and then pee on the sides of the bowl so the splash doesn’t wake her.

Hanging pictures is a huge pain in the rear. I never seem to get them level or centered in the spot where I want them. This results in lots of holes in my walls.

Not only does it get them level, the gadget allows you to adjust art up, down, left, right all without taking it the wall, so you can adjust spacing and centering without having to make extra holes in the wall for each move.
The Hangsmart device can be mounted to your wall with adhesives or screws that are included.
