    Received a fantastic Xmas present from a client but am stumped as to how I can attach it to my gyprock wall. It is over 1.5 high but not really heavy and has the back plate as per the image.

    Ideas anyone?

    Find the stud behind the gyprock in the area you want to put it. Hammer a nail into the stud. Hang it on the nail.

    @York will it not slide to a side as the top of the screwed in piece is in a t shape?

    Yeah that is a bit tricky.
    Go two nails spaced to fit, make sure they're level though. I'd even go one better and use screws
    Can we see the front? :)

    That fixing on the back is a 'security fixing' which is used in picture frames (in pairs) - it makes the artwork more difficult to steal.

    Change the support bracket (from art supplies/framing shop).

    Button head screw with a diameter slightly less than the hole. It will then sit inside and secure it in place

    Thanks for the advise. Everything on line is placing the antlers onto a board which I think is way too tacky.

    @bob shovel will post image when I put them on the wall.
