    Default How Do I Mount Pixel Frames Around Windows?

    I have a 1/4" flat aluminum frame with 100 pixels attached, using the Pixclips. I need to put them around my vinyl windows. I am struggling with how to secure them to the windows. I cannot drill into the vinyl windows, because I enjoy living with my wife. The windows are surrounded by stucco, but the stucco is covering Styrofoam. I cannot put anything into the stucco covered Styrofoam. The bottom of the window ledge is also stucco covered Styrofoam and can't support too much weight. I think the current weight can support the lights and frame but it's not secured to anything. Half the window is glass and the other half is screen. I have tried suction cups on the windows but they don't stay on.

    i have attached a picture with lights just hanging so i could gauge the total weight. Please help.

    Thanks, Chris

    Can you post up some closer/clearer photos of the top, bottom and side edges of the window frame there?

    Can you slide anything under the stucco trim there? Like thin plastic?
    The flat bar is going to complicate this because of weight

    Stucco comes right up to the vinyl window, no room there. The flat iron is aluminum so it weighs less than steel. The frame pictured in the first post weighs about 5.5 pounds with the 100 pixels attached.

    The only thing I've got is to take the screen out and possibly create somthing that used the screen channel. Heavy duty suction cups should work though...have you tried the big ones?
