I Command You to Use This Product Oct 11, 2008
By Nicole Martinez
"Reviews by Cole"
It might sound silly that I would review something so small, so simply but it's also so effective.
I bought a 6Pack of Medium Command Hooks which came with 12 adhesive strips so that you can reuse the hooks. This is perfect when you don't have any air tools and don't want to leave a mess.
Right now I'm using 3 of them in my cook/shoe closet to hang up my broom, Swiffer and the previously mentioned Swiffer Duster. Because I have no space in my pantry and no other kitchen closet, I had to shove these items in my coat closet. However, the floor was already full of shoes so I decided to "build up" instead.
Peel off the line on the adhesive strips, stick it to the hook, stick the hook on the wall and wait an hour. The medium sized hooks are meant to hold up to 3lbs but 3M makes hooks as small as mini and as large as jumbo as well as hooks with different shapes and even chrome hooks to add a little style.
So far, I've had no problems. The hooks stick wonderfully and my Swiffer Wet is probably over the 3lb limit (although the fluid bottle is not full).
When it comes time to take them down, all I need to do is push up on the hook and it will slide off, revealing the end of the adhesive tab. Removing them, which I have done before, is simply a matter of pulling the tab until it comes undone and your wall is free of damage and residue.

Great, when they work! Feb 04, 2010
If you're using these for Christmas decorations, don't listen to the commercials - always buy the bigger ones because they do actually work. These smaller ones, although more compact, really cannot hold that much weight and you will have all your decorations come crashing to the ground. They're a great product, when they work, but if you read the label and buy accordingly, you'll be sorry. Just size up on these and you'll be fine. Learned that the hard way! Recommend, but with the above suggestions.

Medium hooks Oct 26, 2011
I have only used one of these so far, and while I don't anticipate putting much weight on this hook there is one thing I must mention.
They do NOT hold well on textured surfaces like dry-wall with said surface and latex paint. The first experiment showed that the surface had to be lightly sanded to give a more consistent surface texture, and then cleaned. I used a 400 grade sandpaper, and cleaned the surface with a rubbing alcohol swab.
This time the connection is very tight, and I will always "level" a surface before I start putting one in place, if you are putting it on a smooth surface, just be sure to clean it with something like the rubbing alcohol.

Excellent hooks - have never let me down! Mar 25, 2010
I love these hooks! I set them up throughout my dorm apartment, and they have never once failed me. I can hang a bath towel (pretty heavy, I would say!) and hand towel onto one hook, and they will remain on it perfectly. I also use them to hang purses and totes, winter coats, belts, and a dry erase board. They have -never- "sunk" or loosened - all the hooks remain firmly in the position I set them up in (which, by the way, was a breeze!). I highly recommend these hooks and can't see why others didn't like them - maybe they messed up on adhering them to the wall? Or maybe they just tried to hang too much - every product does have its limit, after all. But, with proper use, these hooks sure have been a valuable addition to my apartment!

Good Hangers; Can Cause Injury Oct 14, 2011
These hangars work really well if used correctly. Can't find these particular hangars for a better price than on Amazon. Be careful with these hangers though, today I pulled off one of the strips (as directed) and it acted like a rubber band and smashed itself so hard against my finger it actually broke the finger nail. After some swearing and a bandaid for the bleeding I was able to put a new strip back on and move the hanger which works great still.
Ultimately they're good hangers but you need to remember to be careful.
