Hanging crown molding can be tricky — often you’re working on ladders with long pieces, and even if you have a helper, the molding can still sag in the middle. Crown Clips give you the extra support you need to secure the molding without a helper. The 9/16” deep hooks on these reusable clips hold the crown molding in place while you fasten it to the wall.
Space the Crown Clips about every 48 inches and attach them to the wall with drywall screws. Make sure you place the hook so it’s just below the bottom edge of the molding. Then rest the molding in the clips and nail the molding to the wall. When the molding is secure, remove each clip simply by sliding it to the left about 3/4 of an inch and popping it off the drywall screw. The screw’s hidden behind the crown molding — no one will ever know it’s there.
Manufactured in China, Crown Clips sell in the US through McFEELY’s for $28 a 25-pack.
