Thank you for your advice and suggestions.

Hi pcordary,

 

The best picture hangers for plaster walls are a product from OOK.

 

These picture hangers use a small nail installed at a 45 degree angle. The angle is the key to keeping in the hook in the wall and not sagging.

 

They require just a small hole and will hold up to 100 pounds! To prevent cracks in the plaster you may drill a pilot hole for the nail in the plaster.

 

Just make sure the pilot hole is no larger than the nail for the hanger.

 

To avoid scratches on the wall, they are even padded on the back.

 

I have included a link below.

 

Mike,
