Use a marker to specify the point where the picture rail needs to be sawn. Use the hacksaw to saw the rail to the required length. The water level tool helps you to install the rail straight. Mark the spots for the screws with a pencil (use the tape measure for correct distances). Drill the holes for the screw plugs with a diameter of 6 mm. Use the Stanley knife to splice a combicap for two endcaps.

These are about all the picture hanging tools you need! And the best part is: after installing a picture hanging system you'll never need to use tools again, when hanging your pictures....
