Clip all corners together:





Lay down the overlays:

It's such a great poster.  One of my favs.

I wanted to pull mine out when Mel first posted his picture, but it's stuck at the bottom of a drawer.  Getting it out is easy, but putting all the posters back, one by one so they are perfectly aligned, is a bitch.  So it shall remain there unfortunately.

So I ordered a second French one panel frame a few months ago from Robert/SD. As I recall, it was $150 shipped, 125cmx165cm, allowing 5cm extra both sides for breathing room beyond the standard 120cm x 160cm.

Not tough to rotate posters.

Find flat space, flip open, and remove:



New LB poster. Problem. Too big for frame.



Solution: Employ heavy-duty scissors to cut off half the excess linen all around poster:



Now fits:



Voila!



Bigger is better!

Curious...if you lay these flat and place a poster in the snap frame, how do you rehang it on the wall? Does this size not get screwed directly into the wall like the 27"x 40" frames?

Hi Syracuselaxfan,  Here's how I like to adapt Spotlight Displays' frames to make it easy for me to take down and switch posters: https://www.allposterforum.com/index.php/topic,13134.msg233550.html#msg233550
Also, you could like it shows on their website change out posters while still mounted to the wall.  Okie

"Inserting Poster:

The easiest way to put a poster in the movie poster frame is to lay the back overlay on the ground. Place your poster on top of the overlay on the ground with the side of the poster you want displayed facing up. Now, take the top overlay and place it on top of the poster. Now you have the poster sandwiched between the two overlays. With all 4 sides of the movie poster frame in the open position, take the poster with the overlays on the front and back of the poster and place it in the movie frame. Being careful not to pinch your fingers, close the top part of the frame onto the poster. This will hold the poster in place. you can then close the sides and bottom of the frame."

I prefer to screw the frame to the wall.  Anything up to a 1 sheet is easy to swap on the wall.  A larger size probably works better by swapping it flat.

A "best of both worlds" option. Very nice. Is this how Mel hangs his frames?

I know that. I swap my 1 sheets in/out with this method all the time. The photos above show the whole frame laying flat on the floor. Once the poster is in the frame it can't be screwed into the wall, which is how the frames are designed to work, thus my question for Mel on how he hangs them.

I prefer to screw the frame to the wall.  Anything up to a 1 sheet is easy to swap on the wall.  A larger size probably works better by swapping it flat.

I do that too. For the larger sizes, if people place the poster in the snap frame while the whole frame lies flat (not just the overlays), then they must have a method (like okiehawker described) for hanging the frame on the wall that doesn't involve screwing the frame to the wall. Is there an alternative way to hang these frames or must some modification be made, again like okiehawker does?

I have built a couple of lightboxes from the spotlight frames.  In those the frame screws to the box and the box has holes in back to hang to wall.

I think the spotlight frame would need stiffening in order to keep it from falling apart when hanging.  A simple wood perimiter should be enouch and the upper end could be used as a cleat.
