Imagine a plastic collapsible flat devise that can be pulled to
almost any length or basic square shape. Like a flat version
the children's toy expanding ball that expands and
as you pull or push it.
Now imagine it holding many pictures/photos on a wall. No
"good spots" to hammer a picture hook into
wall. Just one or two hooks would hold it up and you could
then hang lots of pictures from it.

Expandable Wall Hook
[phoenix, Oct 17 2004]
||I've spent a good deal of time around galleries and hanging pictures. If it came to this, I think I'd rather live with a few extra minor holes in the wall board, or convert to a masonite pegboard system, or even an overhead track and tensile wire system. Having your expandable wall hook poking out from behind pictures would seem to be hugely distracting from the value of the art.
