Thanks for the feedback. I’ve used the other methods as you mentioned with a picture frame and shelf but think the keyhole slot seems a good match for the project.

Will play around with the bit when it arrives. I’m thinking of making the slot horizontal so the person can have an ability to adjust as needed (rather than my trying to ensure the hole is perfectly centered with a vertical slot).

Yeah, the keyhole idea looks like a winner. If you really want to go the extra mile, include a paper template for spacing the screws the correct distance apart. I m assuming you ll rout two slots, but I guess one could work as well.

For other projects that don t require that much stability, like picture frames, I ve had good luck using the standard toothed hangers. I just add squares of double-sided tape at the lower corners, and they stay put.

For large and heavy objects like mirror frames I screw them directly to the wall and cap the holes with decorative square plugs.

I think you re on the right track with the keyhole slots for this project.
