To what surfaces will Command™ Products stick?
Painted, stained or varnished wood, glass, tile, painted cinder block, plaster, metal, and painted wallboard.
It is okay to use Command™ Products if the glass is not exposed to direct sunlight and not flooded with water. For glass shower doors use our special Water-Resistant line of products (blue strip) which are clearly marked on our packaging.
No. Command™ Products are intended for mostly smooth surfaces such as those listed above. However, our products will stick to painted, smooth cinder block (the type found inside many school and office buildings).
Paint should be fully cured (check paint can for manufacturer's cure time) before using Command Products. We recommend waiting 28 days before use on fresh paint. Also, alcohol may remove or dull the surface of fresh paint.
No. Most wallpapers are too delicate and can tear when adhesives are applied.
Yes, provided the item is within the weight limit specified for Command™ Picture Hanging Strips. We do not recommend hanging tapestry or other fabrics. For decorative plates, please ensure there is a smooth surface for the strip to adhere to. Do not hang valuable or irreplaceable items.
What can happen to Command™ Products in Extreme Heat or highly humid climates?
The adhesives on Command products may soften at temperatures above 40°C. If you are expecting a heatwave, it is recommended you remove any picture frames and then re-mount when weather conditions return to normal. In highly humid locations within the home such as in the bathroom or in parts of the country that experiences regular high humidity, try our special Water-Resistant line of products (blue strip) which are clearly marked on our packaging.
Apply Command™ Products when the temperature is above 15°C. The products hold strongly down to -5°C.
Because the adhesive could soften and lose adhesion above 51°C, we don't recommend using it in your car. In addition, vinyl dashboards and door panels contain high amounts of plasticisers to maintain flexibility, and this makes adhesion to these surfaces difficult.
Can I use more than one hook if I want to hang an item that's heavier than the weight listed on the package?
No. We don't recommend it. Weight may not be distributed equally and can result in failure.
Command adhesive products will last indefinitely when used in accordance with our pack instructions.
Hooks are perfect for hanging inside cupboards, closets, lockers or on display in kitchens, laundries, entryways, bedrooms, bathrooms, boats and campers. Most packages of hooks come with extra strips so the hooks can be reused or repositioned.
Picture Hanging Strips are great for hanging one or multiple picture frames without wall damage. We also have dedicated picture hangers that suit frames with sawtooth and wire-back attachments, easle back stands and canvases. Our diverse range of products help you be more organized, whether it's mounting mops and brooms or hanging up decorations for your next celebration.
The one-hour wait ensures that the adhesive has had enough time to build strong adhesion to the wall or surface.
Many household and window cleaners leave behind a very thin layer of residue that affects how strongly the adhesive will bond to the surface. Use Isopropyl Alcohol or window cleaning solution available through chemists or local hardware stores. Methylated spirit is not recommended.
No. Command™ Strips contain an adhesive that is a synthetic rubber resin and does not contain natural rubber latex.
