Yes, the name sounds like something you’d see being sold on TV in the middle of the night, but the Hang-O-Matic looks like a useful tool if you have a lot of pictures or artwork to hang.  It has a built-in metal tape that measures up to 6 feet, and there’s a sliding bubble level attached to the tape.  There are also two sliding anchors on the tape that measure the distance between two holes or hooks on the back of any item, and they can then make a couple of dimples on the wall to show where you need to place the picture hangers.  And of course the level makes sure that your picture will hang straight once it’s on the wall.

The Hang-O-Matic measures 9.5″ x 4.25″ x 2.5″ and weighs less than a quarter of a pound.  When you don’t need to hang art, you can use it for general measuring around the house.  The Hang-O-Matic is $14.95 from The Grommet.
