Screen Clips to Hang Japanese Folding Screens

Made of black or clear Lucite, these unobtrusive hangers provide a safe and tasteful way to hang folding screens. They have been specifically designed for hanging traditional Japanese folding screens (byobu) on drywall. If you are unsure of how many clips you need for your screen or have any questions, please feel free to e-mail us with your questionsor give us a call at 808.523.5913.
*They cannot support the weight of wooden Chinese screens.

In the Box:

3 Top Clips
3 Bottom Clips
2 Side Clips


The channel of each clip measures 3/4". This accommodates most traditional Japanese screens with lacquer edging. If your screen is thinner than this, a piece of acid-free matboard or paper can be used to line the back of the channel so that it sits snugly in place.


For a standard screen with a black lacquer edge, we recommend using black clips. If your lacquer edging is a natural wood, orange, red, or other color, we recommend the clear clips.

Installing a Japanese screen (byobu) with screen clips

Step 1

Position your bottom row of screen clips at intervals that are equivalent to the folds in your screen. Use the double sided positioning tape on the back of the clips. Once they are level and straight, nail them into place. Place the screen in the channel created by the screen clips.

Step 2

Have someone hold the screen in place (place pressure along the folds where there are wooden supports beneath the paper/silk). Use a tissue or soft cloth to protect the surface from oils on your hands. Slide the top clip over the top edge, placed at each fold and nail into place.

Step 3

Position the side clips, one at either end in the center of the screen height and nail it in place.

The installation is complete!
