Hooks with Clear Strips

Hooks with clear strips blend in seamlessly allowing you to show what matters most, your decor, not how it's hung up.

To Apply

  • clean with

    Clear strips work best on smooth surfaces. Clean with isopropyl rubbing alcohol by wiping gently. Don't use household cleaners like wipes or sprays because they leave behind a slippery residue.

  • separate strips

    Separate the strips and remove the black liner—it's the one marked "Wall Side". Now press the strip directly onto the wall where you want to hang your hook. Press along the entire strip for 30 seconds.

  • remove the blue liner

    Finally, remove the blue liner and press the hook onto the strip firmly for about 30 seconds. The harder you press, the stronger the adhesive bond will be. Wait 1 hour before hanging anything on the hook. This allows the adhesive bond to reach maximum strength. Check your packaging for the correct weight limits.

To Remove

  • hold the hook gently in place

    Hold the hook gently in place (so it doesn't snap your fingers!) but don't press it against the wall.

  • never pull the strip towards you

    Remember to never pull the strip towards you. Always pull straight down as slow as you can.

  • stretch up to 15 inches

    Slowly stretch the strip straight down, keeping your hand against the wall as you go. Keep stretching up to 30 cm until the hook releases from the strip


All Other Hooks

Command™ Hooks are available in a wide range of designs to match your individual style and decor. They also come in a variety of sizes and hold a surprising amount of weight.

To Apply a 2-Piece Hook

  • first clean

    First, clean the wall with isopropyl rubbing alcohol by wiping gently. Don't use household cleaners like wipes or sprays because they leave behind a slippery residue.

  • separate the strips and remove the red liner.

    Separate the strips and remove the red liner. Press the strip onto the backside of the hook.

  • press against the wall

    Now press the hook firmly against the wall for about 30 seconds. The harder you press, the stronger the adhesive bond will be.

Do you have a small one-piece hook without a base?
If yes, skip the remaining steps, but don't forget to wait 1 hour before hanging.

  • slide the hook up and off

    In order to get the adhesive to really stick, you need to slide the hook up and off the mounting base.

  • press firmly against the wall

    Now press the base firmly against the wall for 30 more seconds.

  • slide the hook back on

    Slide the hook back on. Wait 1 hour before hanging anything on the hook. This allows the adhesive bond to reach maximum strength. Check your package for the correct weight limits.

To Remove

  • reveal the mounting base and strip

    If you don't see the Command® Strip poking out the bottom of your hook, then slide the hook up to reveal the mounting base and strip.

  • hold the base gently

    Hold the base gently in place (so it doesn't snap your fingers!), but don't press it against the wall.

  • always pull straight down

    Remember to never pull the strip towards you. Always pull straight down as slow as you can.

  • slowly strech the strip down

    Slowly stretch the strip straight down, keeping your hand against the wall as you go. Keep stretching up to 3 cm until the hook releases from the strip.
