Record Album Frame by UmbraÂ®
I had been looking everywhere for the perfect record album frame for four records that are very important to me (Johnny Cash albums left to me by a family member who passed away). I was excited to see that The Container Store carried them once again.
Once framed and on the wall, the albums in these frames looks great! I already have photos and magazine covers framed in similar style document frames so I'm a big fan of the look. However, my reason for only three stars is the challenge it was to get the albums in the frame. My thumbs and fingers did not take kindly to having to lift the small metal pieces holding the frame in place. I even tried a sock over my fingers, tried a butter knife and scissors but nothing helped. Instead I endured the very painful process of having these small pieces dig sharply into my fingers and under my nails. Ouch! But once in the frame, it was worth it.
A few of my frames had the price tag right on the glass (would be nice to see it on the box to avoid any residue on the glass). And a tip to those who don't like to put holes in their wall, I hang all my pictures with the 3M photo strips and it works beautifully every time!

Only lasted 3 days
I bought 3 frames and hung all three. I took one down to add artwork to it. When I came home 3 days later, the remaining two frames on the wall had fallen. The glass as well as the frames were broken. The nails were still in the wall. I think this may be due to the placement of the mounting bracket. It's on the back of the frame and not recessed, so the frame does not lie flat against the wall when you hang it.

looks great on my wall!
framed some old signed lps and they look great! would have given it five stars but it's hard to secure the albums without them slipping over time. might work better with just the covers. anyhow, very happy with purchase!
