TURNBUTTONS

Turnbuttons are commonly used in picture frames to hold the backing board, mount, artwork and glazing in place. They offer an alternative solution to framer's tabs and points. Turnbuttons are screwed into the back of the picture frame and rotated into place. Turnbuttons work best when the backing board is flush with the back of the frame.

BUMPERS

Moulded self-adhesive round (clear) or square (brown) shaped bumpers in non-marking polyurethane with acrylic adhesive backing on a protective release liner. Bumpers space the frame away from the wall allowing air to circulate and minimizing dust build up. They can also help keep the frame straight and may prevent surface scratches.
