I have used several of these hooks around my kitchen to hold my frying wok and some utensils. I was pleasantly surprised that this hook has never failed with my pans as some of them are mid weight and bulky. It has really helped me make the most of a small kitchen and keeps my most used items right at hand.
I just completed a 42 day cruise half way around the world and I took the large command hooks with me. Since you are limited to space in a stateroom on a ship the large command hooks came in so handy. I used them to hang my gown & robe on when not needed. I also used them in the bathroom to hang my washcloth and back brush on when not in use. And when the cruise was over I could take them down without any problems and they tucked away so easily in my luggage. I would highly recommend using them on a cruise ship or in a summer cabin or beach house.
I bought a number of command hooks- the small the medium, the large and the jumbo. I was really excited. I was finally going to organize my apartment. I would say that 90% of the hooks I put up fell right down. I was within the weight amount and yet, they couldn't hold anything. I must have spent hours putting up the hooks (yes I followed all directions). Some hooks came down within a few hours, some within a few days, and some after a few months. But 90% were not good. I was so disappointed. It was a waste of money and time. I had one up in the bathroom to hold a tiny little potty seat to put over the toilet. It fell down. I had one in the hall to hold coats and it fell down. And anything I used for the heavier ones didn't work at all. Very disappointing.
I used these all over my dorm in college and still use them in my house today. They work great to hang anything at all and get it up off the floor. They do not leave any marks or pull up the paint. Great product!
I usually wait for my husband to put up or install things in our home, however, the instructions were simple & easy to understand. I thought,"why wait", I need this hook NOW. I installed it with ease and it is amazingly durable and holds everything I want it to. 3M has GREAT products and this is just another example of how well everything they make works. I have purchased 3M products in the past and they always live up to my expectations. Thanks 3M!!!
These hooks are so handy, and very tough. I found letting the kids hang them where they want, they are better at hanging their jackets and clothes, and the landlord won't get mad about drilling into the walls.
