These things are brilliant! I live in rented accommodation, meaning that anything that makes a hole in a wall is a no-no. These have allowed us to make a rented place feel like home by giving you that flexibility to put up hooks wherever you want without damaging the paintwork.
They are super easy to apply with very clear instructions on the pack. One thing I would say is that it does recommend you to wait for a bit before adding weight to them (I cant remember how long exactly, I think maybe 45 minutes?) and that is an instruction you shouldn't ignore, no matter how tempting it may be. But assuming you have waited, it can take a surprising amount of weight with ease. Ive used three of these to hang a heavy curtain, and so far its still holding amazingly strong. I haven't removed these yet, but I have removed other command strips which attach using the same principle, and so far not a single fleck of paintwork has been damaged or marked by them.
Ive used Command stuff for all sorts of hanging, and so far I've not had a single complaint with any of their products. If you rent and want to make your place feel a bit more like a home, these really are fantastic.
I'm currently using these to hang my pots and pans, but there are some things you want to take note before actually purchasing these.
Because of the design of the sticky pads, you have to ensure that the pan or pot you're hanging is pulling down on the hook vertically and not diagonally. I had 2 hooks fall off because of the angle of the pot (about 45 degrees from the wall) and it resulted in two loud crashes about a week apart.
Do take note of that! Otherwise, this is fantastic for hanging slightly heavier cookery.
I have found these hooks very good in the past and just bought this pack as I needed more. I have had a piece of stained glass weighing 750g on the medium hook attached to PVC of the window frame for 4 years without any issues. I bought this pack to hang up another item on a different window. This pack has 6 hooks and 12 double sided strips so you can re-use a hook if needed. To apply you peel one side of adhesive strip and apply to hook, then peel the black side of the adhesive strip and apply to wall holding firmly for 30 secs - wait 1 hour and all is done. To remove in the past I have found more difficult but only because I didn't have the instructions to remove it and therefore didn't do it right but everything did come away cleaning from the PVC window surface when I did it. I've not tried it on other surfaces myself.
Amazing value and very strong hooks. I use these to wall mount my surround sound speakers - they weight around 880g each and these have held them up for over a month with no issues. It is great as well, as the hook is detachable and reattachable to the piece that sticks on the wall, which comes in quite handy.
Just a note that I did follow the instructions to the tee.... I cleaned the wall with an alcohol solution, then pressed on the sticker for 30 seconds, then waited an hour before putting the speakers on. You might want to do this - you will be surprised how much oil / dust / etc is on the wall that you cannot see, and that would significantly reduce the strength of the adhesive no doubt.
