Command™ Weight Reference Guide

Not sure which Command™ Product is right for you? We weighed some common household objects to give you a better understanding of the amount of weight you’re hanging on your walls. Explore our Command™ Weight Reference Guide to find the best Command™ Product for your project.

Command™ Hooks Weight Limits

  • an image of a bag of coffee beans
    Hold up to 450 g

    Even the lightest items need the right support. Next time you brew a cup of coffee in the morning, remember that a 450 grams bag of coffee beans is the equivalent to how much a small hook holds.

  • an image of a bag of apples
    Hold up to 1.3 kg

    Comparing apples to oranges might not be a fair matchup, but comparing a bag of apples to your next home décor project—that’s a different story. Did you know that a standard bag of apples is equal to 1.3 kilograms? How do you like them apples?

  • an image of a bag of potatoes acting as a weight reference for command hooks that hold up to 2.2 kg
    Hold up to 2.2 kg

    You want a damage-free hanging solution that’s up for the task—not one that will drop your object like a hot potato. For items with a bit more weight, remember that 2.2 kilograms feels just like a standard bag of potatoes.

  • An image of 3 litres of milk.
    Hold up to 3.6 kg

    Looking for a solution to hang your heavier objects? Now there’s no use crying over spilt milk. Just reach for the 3 litres of milk in your fridge for a rough weight comparison.

Command™ Picture Hanging Strips Weight Limits

  • An image of a watermelon. Hang picture frames with large command strips that have a 1.8 kg weight limit.
    Hold up to 1.8 kg

    The next time you carry a watermelon, remember that it weighs about 1.8 kilograms. Quite hefty, yes, but nothing our Picture Hanging Strips can't carry.

  • An image of a kettlebell. Hang picture frames with large command strips that can hold up to 5kg.
    Hold up to 5 kg

    Can you effortlessly lift 5 kilograms kettlebells? Hats off to you! Equally impressive is that Command Picture Hanging Strips can carry frames equivalent to this weight.

  • An image of oranges in a plastic mesh sack. Explore 3m command hooks for one of the strongest products for picture hanging.
    Hold up to 7.2 kg

    Got heavy frames weighing about 7.2 kilograms (equivalent to 2 bunches of oranges)? We have picture hanging strips catered to these heavyweights—orange you glad?
