Remove one of the green liners and press onto the frame. Repeat with the other pairs of strips as shown above. Place the lower pair of strips about 2/3 down from the top of the frame. Check your package for the correct weight limits.

A: The one-hour wait ensures that the adhesive has had enough time to build strong adhesion to the wall or surface before any weight is placed on it. After initial application we always recommend that you remove the frame (Command™ Picture Strips) or Hook Piece (Command™ Hooks) from the wall, in order to press firmly on the strips for 30 seconds. Leave for at least one hour before rehanging/reattaching.

Due to the wide range of wallpaper finishes available, some types may be particularly delicate. It is important to note Command™ adhesive is only as strong as the wallpaper’s adhesive bond to the surface below.
