Command™ Picture Hanging Tips

  • DO
    • Use Isopropyl rubbing alcohol to prepare/clean surfaces (wipe gently, let dry). Isopropyl evaporates, removing dirt and grease and does not leave a residue, unlike other household cleaners that often have moisturisers, perfumes or other ingredients that will leave a residue and interfere with the Command adhesive.
    • Apply strips so that the tab is pointing downward to the floor, attach Picture Hanging Strips directly to frame edges. Strips pointing downward aid removal when stretching the tab. It is much more difficult to stretch upwards while keeping the strip tab flat to the wall, as required.
    • Ensure frame dimensions are within those advertised on the front of the pack and as shown on the back of the pack.
    • Use waxed dental floss or fly fishing line to ‘saw’ through between the wall and the strip if the tab has been snapped off or strip cannot be stretched flat to the wall to advertised length. Peeling, lifting, scraping, prising off or pulling the strip tab forwards or at an angle can cause damage to walls and paint.
  • DON'T
    • Use Command Hooks or Clear products to hang pictures. Hanging a picture on a hook tilts the frames outwards, creating a forward pulling, peeling weight which may cause damage to the wall. Command adhesives are designed for vertical sheer strength, all Picture & Frame products are flat and have a larger ‘footprint’ than hooks to spread the load across the wall.
    • Mix Picture Hanging Strips sizes on one frame. 4 x small sets hold up to 1.8kg, 4x medium sets hold up to 5.4kg, 4 x sets of large hold up to 7.2kg and should be applied in accordance with pack diagram.
    • Use more than four sets of Picture Hanging Strips per frame. The weight advertised is the weight that will hold indefinitely if the product has been applied in accordance with the instructions.
    • Apply Picture Hanging Strips lower than below 2/3 from the top of the frame. Applying strips more than 2/3 from the top of the frame will prevent the ease of removal when trying to leverage the frame away from the wall. Refer to the back of pack instructions for diagrams of how to apply/remove.
    • Forget to ensure all Command adhesive gets one hour to bond fully to surfaces before adding any weight. While Command adhesive has great initial ‘grab’, it does need one hour without weight to achieve advertised strength.
