Hanging Frames With Double Hooks

When I hung my entryway gallery, the frames had double hooks on the back.  It may seem to be harder to hang pieces like this, but it's actually pretty easy.  I have found this method to work great with frames or art.

Turn your frame over.

Using a piece of tape, lay it over the hooks.

Mark on the tape where the nails will go.

Remove the piece of tape and place it on the wall where you want your frame to go. 

Use a level to make sure the tape is straight.  Place your nail right above your marks.

Hang your pictures.

Now you have yourself a level frame.  Simple, huh?  Have you tried this method?  Tell me, is there another way?
