First let's start with Command Hooks and how to use them They come in a lot of shapes, sizes, and also come with a weight guideline. So pick accordingly depending on what you are hanging.

Inside the command hook packages are strips like this. The first step is to place the correct side to the back of the command hook itself. (The directions will be on the box, and generally the part that goes on the back of the command hook is red.)

The other side of the command hook sticker says "wall" and this is the part you'll stick to the wall.

You peel off the wall side and place it on the wall and press on it for about 30 seconds. Once it's up, it is recommended not to hang anything on it for about 1 hour to allow adhesion time.

    Once you take the command product off the wall, is it useable anymore? Plus i do not see a Frame weight limit. How do we know that this is not another way for the company to advertise their product?

      Hi Anthony, I’m the creator of this post and volunteered to put it here. I’m not advertising the product for the company, it is an honest share of how I use them.

      The hook itself self is reusable and the strips on back are what you need to replace if you take it down to use it for something else. The packages come with extra strips and you can buy strips alone to help reuse.

      The frame strips come in different weights so look for the ones that would appropriately hold your picture’s weight.

    Don't use these on wallpaper. I did so, let the hook "cure" for over an hour, hung a picture. When I went back a couple of hours later the picture and hook were on the floor.

    I've been a huge fan of this product almost from the day it hit the market - how many eons ago? I have pictures and other decorative objects that have been hanging on my walls for years with no problem. One thing I think is worth mentioning: I'm a stickler for exactly following the manufacturer's instructions, especially making sure the surface is clean and dry. Don't know how I lived all those years without them!!!
