Top customer reviews
It's made of steel and rather thick at 12 gauge, so unlike aluminum wire of the same gauge, it was quite difficult to cut with my household wire cutters and remained quite stiff when looping and winding it around itself on the backs of the stretched canvases. It did the job, but I could have easily used a smaller gauge or lighter material for my projects and probably received better hanging results. (Copper or aluminum would have twisted and bent more easily)
Remember all the factors when choosing wire; gauge, weight of object being suspended, material of wire, pliability etc. when making your choice. (The higher the wire gauge number the thinner the wire; therefore, the less weight it will hold and aluminum and copper are softer than steel, so will hold less but /bend/stretch more easily.) I know that OOK 16 gauge galvanized steel wire is rated to hold up to 55 pounds and 19 gauge will hold up to 35 pounds, so this 12 gauge will probably hold about 75 pounds. Also remember to take into consideration the hardware that this wire will be attaching to. If you're sticking a 75 pound object to a wall on a basic nail, the wire may hold, but the nail may break. In addition, drywall will hold much less firmly than hardwood, so use a stud finder if possible to locate the solid wood behind the wall to drill/nail into.
I would recommend this wire for hanging very heavy objects like large mirrors, mailboxes, potted plants etc. My canvas weighs approx. 20 lbs. each and one length of this wire could probably support about 3 or 4 of them all together easily.
