Default Picture to hide a wall safe...

I have a wall safe installed and would like to hang a picture over it to keep it from view. I would like to hinge the frame to swing left to right but I am a little unsure about the type of hinge to use so I can open the frame more than 90 degrees so the frame doesn;t hit the wall.. Using a drawer slider wont work as there is a window to the left and a wall to the right of the picture. I thought this would be easy but has turned out to be harder than mounting the safe.

Hey welcome to the site. You can really make a picture look natural if you put the hinges on the top.

They do make a hinge that will accomodate this situation. I just bought a hasp similar to what you need but, I'll be damned if I can remember the term they used for it, I knew it when I saw it but, didn't know what to ask for when I needed it.
