I created a wall of picture frames in the hallway. I was concerned that this was across the hall from the washer and dryer and that some humidity or heat might affect the adhesive and the frames would fall. Not so! They have been on the wall for over a year, not one strip has come loose from the wall or the frame and I couldn't be happier or more satisfied with the results.
(I might suggest an investment in a small picture frame level. It fits over the corner of the picture you want to hang so you know it's properly aligned.)
I eventually put some tiny framed mirrors in the 'empty spaces' and when friends look in the mirror I tell them that's their latest picture on the wall. I put the little mirrors up with the small Command strips

I followed the instructions, using more strips than recommended, just to be safe. On a (less than 6pounds) 16x20 frame, I used 4 sets, two on each side. I have used these on something smaller than 8x10 and it worked fine, but for anything larger than 8x10, it doesn't matter how many strips you use. It WILL NOT HOLD.
Ironically, I was initially pleased with the result and went to the store to buy more. When I returned, my picture frame had fallen and knocked down other things during the descent. Three of the four sets just did not adhere to the painted plaster (smooth) wall and the 4th set came apart at the velcro connection.

Since the brand new box had slightly longer strips, I thought I'd give them a try in addition to whatever slight stickiness may be salvaged from the fallen frame. I added FOUR more sets, covering the whole back outer edge of the frame (including the old strips from the first attempt). I pressed for almost a minute pushing my forearms into the sides to apply constant pressure on each whole side.

This time, it didn't even last a few minutes. I'm very disappointed and will try to return the newest box (I doubt I have the receipt for the first box and I used 4 sets already on the small frame a few weeks ago).

Unframed Canvas mounts well!

By Saby

from Cincinnati, OH, United States

Comments about 3M Command Medium Interlocking Fasteners (17201):

I needed to hang my sister's painting; it was an unframed canvas and she had been bugging me to send a pic of it on the wall. I finally decided to use the 3M solution and now it is proudly mounted on the wall next to the fireplace...and my sister loves it that I have it up! Thanks 3M

Not happy with results

By Stitch12

from Hope Valley, RI

Comments about 3M Command Medium Interlocking Fasteners (17201):

I bought these and they seemed to be okay for a few months. One picture frame came down in the summer and I thought it might have been due to the heat and humidity, but it is now November and another frame has now ended up on the floor. I am obviously not happy with the results.

Love OLDER STYLE applicator

By Hogs

from Florida, United States

Comments about 3M Command Medium Interlocking Fasteners (17201):

I love this glue. However when replacing I had to buy it in a smaller applicator than what I had and this new one has a tiny cap and the glue just pours out. I am wasting a lot. I would love to have the older style applicator which had a wide clear cover which had a slot for the tip which was blue. it could also be stored upside down on the lid. That is my only complaint. I wish I could find the older bottle.

Comments about 3M Command Medium Interlocking Fasteners (17201):

I need an industrial size vat of this stuff. I love to papercraft and am buying at least a bottle a week. There is NOOOOO other glue like it... believe me I've bought them all trying to find an alternative when this was sold out. Best glue ever.

Perfect solution for picture wall.

By MamaNicole

from Albany, NY, United States

Comments about 3M Command Medium Interlocking Fasteners (17201):

I've used command strips to hang my picture wall in 3 homes over the years. I can quickly take down a picture to change photos. When I painted the wall, there was no damage to repair, and I easy just had to add the wall side to the pictures with the strips still attached to rehang. Something in moving. Worth it.

Failed product

By Millie Zav

from California, United States

Comments about 3M Command Medium Interlocking Fasteners (17201):

I used these to hang up a few things in my dorm. I hanged up a frame of pictures and it seemed to stick well so I went to class. When I returned the frame was on the floor with a broken tab; and on the way down it knocked down and broke another frame and landed on some tea lights shattering the base of them. Overall three damaged products two of which are going to have to be tossed., I'm very disappointed and will go back to thumbtacks.

DAMAGED MY WALLS! WOULD GIVE ZERO STARS!

By AndiLV

from California

Comments about 3M Command Medium Interlocking Fasteners (17201):

This was the first time I used the Command Strips on painted walls and will NEVER do it again! The alcohol prep (which is the only method prescribed to prepare the walls) dulled and removed the paint off my walls. There should be a warning to try this technique first; the only warning is not to use on freshly painted walls, but my walls were painted over two years ago.

Waste of money

By Frustratedpicturehanger08

from Undisclosed

Comments about 3M Command Medium Interlocking Fasteners (17201):

I hung a plastic picture frame on the wall after following instructions, and the frame came crashing down in less than 10 seconds. I thought maybe the Velcro didn't snap together all the way so I tried again. This time the frame broke in half leaving more marks on the wall than a nail would have. I'm out the money for the frame, the command strips, and damage to the wall.

High Risk

By Andrew

from Dallas, Texas, United States

Comments about 3M Command Medium Interlocking Fasteners (17201):

My wife got these strips to hold a few small pictures for us, which belonged to my grandmother. Seemed like a really good idea, especially given all the good reviews I had heard. The strips held pretty well for a few months. Then one day I came home from work, and there was the frame, laying on the floor with one of the metal supports broken out of it. Thankfully, the glass was not broken, but the frame was damaged. I don't think I can really recommend something that will expose your things to risk and potential damage. Very dissatisfied.

Great for Teachers

By KatieLynn

from Houston, TX, United States

Comments about 3M Command Medium Interlocking Fasteners (17201):

I tried these for my classroom and I am obsessed. Nothing would stay on my walls because it would get too humid on the weekend when they turn the air conditioning off. I even tried hot glue, nothing worked. I tried these and they are perfect. I teach Special Education and even if one of my kids rips a poster down we can just velcro it back.Pretty fantastic.

No holes - No holes!

By msfrugal

from Oklahoma, United States

Comments about 3M Command Medium Interlocking Fasteners (17201):

I hate holes in the walls so until a few years ago there are very few pictures hanging on my walls at home. Holes in the walls leave the wall so tacky looking. For the longest I refused to hang anything and would try to conjure up a way to hang things without nails... then I came across Command Strips. OMG! I almost went crazy! I love these things. I have used them to hang my 32 sq ft. business boards on my walls. (That's the full length of a large wall). And when I'm ready to take my board down or replace it I don't have to worry about a mess or looking at those horrible, tacky holes in the wall. Thank you 3M. P.S The next genius idea is mine. LOL.

Soooo Disappointed

By Coffy

from Stony Point, NY, United States

Comments about 3M Command Medium Interlocking Fasteners (17201):

I bought these a couple of weeks ago after seeing several commercials showing how easy it was to put on and remove without any damage to the wall. Well I couldn't have been more disappointed that less than 15 minutes of them being on the wall they fell and shattered. Two brand new picture frames broken because I believed in a product that did not hold up to what it promised. Now I'm out my money not only on this product but my two beautiful frames. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT UNLESS YOU WANT TO WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!

Comments about 3M Command Medium Interlocking Fasteners (17201):

I purchased this product so that I would not have to put holes in my walls to hang pictures. I was concerned that they would be able to support the weight of my larger pictures. I am pleases to say the product works extremely well and I have had no issues whatsoever with using them.

I enjoy taking pictures of wildlife, how quickly the pictures accumulate. In stead of playing woodpecker with my walls, i use picture hanging strips they are easy to use and you can hang your pictures quickly.

works perfect with this one trick!

By crimson112

from milwaukee, wi

Comments about 3M Command Medium Interlocking Fasteners (17201):

After going through two sets of command strips and having my picture fall BOTH times I figured out the secret. Put the strip on the wall where you want to the hang your picture but WITHOUT attaching the other strip and the frame/picture. Let that one strip adhere to the wall overnight. Stick the frame/picture on the next day until the velcro "clicks" and you are good to go!

Hanging out with pictures

By jenniferrhea

from Portland, ME, USA

Comments about 3M Command Medium Interlocking Fasteners (17201):

In attempts to mount a difficult and awkward size & shape canvas I found myself at a loss, as I can not damage the walls and I needed something that would hold. I tried the command strips I had on hand and was shocked how quickly and easily the picture was mounted to the wall and it's been a week and it stands strong!
