    "hang up a frame" or "hang a frame up" ?

    What is right:
    "I did not know how it was possible to hang up a frame"
    or
    "I did not know how it was possible to hang a frame up" ?

    Thank you

    In that context, "hang up" is a separable phrasal verb. So, either expression is acceptable.
