Two words:

COMMAND STRIPS

Seriously, you can get Command Strips that can hold up like 15 lbs and there's no putting holes in your walls and adjusting/leveling anything is easy.

This method. Simple and easy. Been doing it this way for years.



"We may consent to be governed, but we will not be ruled." - Kevin D. Williamson, 2012

"All the citizens of this land are of right freemen; they owe no allegiance to any class and should recognize no task-masters. Under the chart of their liberties, under the law of high heaven, they are free and without shackles on their limbs nor mortgages upon the fruits of their brain or muscles; they bow down before no prince, potentate, or sovereign, nor kiss the royal robes of any crowned head; they render homage only to their God and should pay tribute only to their Government. Such at least is the spirit of our institutions, the character of our written national compact."

Charles Triplett O’Ferrall of Virginia - In Congress, May 1, 1888

I always make a template. I put a piece of paper on the back of the item and rub over the keyholes with the edge of a pencil. If the keyholes are offset you can also mark the template with a level line. Then I use a short level across the appropriate template marks and tape it in place. I drill holes for the screws through the template. Always hangs correctly.
