The small set can hold a maximum thickness of 2mm. 

 

How much weight can Handvas hold?
The screws we provide are suitable for plasterboard walls only. This will allow both the big and small set to hold up to 14kgs. Please keep in mind Handvas is not intended to hold heavy objects. Any attempt at holding anything beyond our instructions will be at your own risk.

 

How does Handvas mount to the wall?
You will need to insert 2 screws for each hand into the wall. The screws fit into the openings at the back of the hand and then you simply slide them down to lock in place, much like a picture frame. Handvas also comes with detailed instructions.
