If you love to decorate and organize, but hate the idea of causing damage to your
walls with nail and screw holes then 3M has a fantastic product that’ll solve your problems.
Command products by 3M stick to solid surfaces, eliminating the need for hammering or
drilling and they remove without leaving behind marks.
Today on Around The House I’ll show you how easy it is to put them up when
you need them and how to remove them when you’re finished.
Whether you need clips, strips, hooks, or hangers 3M products will hold strong and come off clean.
Each command product is made to hold different amounts of weight. So be sure
to check the package to see how much weight it will hold before installing it.
Installation is easy and I’ll show you how to do it using this command hook.
First, clean the surface you’re working with, using rubbing alcohol.
Avoid household cleaners…they leave behind a thin layer of residue that will affect how
the adhesive on the hook bonds to the surface.
After the surface is clean, peel the red liner off the adhesive strip and apply to the back of the command hook.
Next, peel off the black printed liner and press the command hook against a solid surface…
Hold firmly for 30 seconds.
You’ll want to wait a full hour before using the hook to ensure that it’s had enough time to build strong bond to the wall.
Use hooks to hang your dustpan… purse… calendar… keys and more!
Cord organizers and clips work great for keeping cables away from your feet…
hang pictures with picture hanging strips. And to save counter space you can even use them to hang a box of tissues.
The possibilities are endless…and the best part is you can remove command products without damaging your walls!
All you do is grasp the hook and stretch the command strip straight down.
If a command strip breaks while removing a hook or a back plate from a surface you can use dental floss to remove it.
Just slide the floss along the wall and slice it away.
No matter what your need, there’s sure to be a command product to get the job done…
and you can find a wide variety of styles and sizes at your local Menards.
