Our family loves this product so much, it would really take too long to explain all the ways we use it. We use all of the sizes but find that we are surprised even when we have miscalculated the weight of something it still held even with the smallest sized ones. Things We Use Them For: * Hang pictures of all types. * Affix remote controls to a central location where they never get lost. * Hang child's artwork. * Affix things in the car for hands-free and easy to access purposes. * Affix MP3 players/PDA's and other electronics to work out equipment and other places for quick retrieval and their safety. * Affix yarn/fuzzy cloth-made items to the wall or car. * Affix something to a cloth/fuzzy surface (by putting the 'wall side' to the item instead of on the wall.) (Options are endless.) What makes it better than nails or other things? * Pictures and other items hung never have to be 'out of place' because the items don't 'move' or adjust with time but if you want to adjust them you easily can. * Easy removal for cleaning or use of pictures and devices. * Easy removal means you can switch out pictures from room to room so they get rotated and enjoyed. * Easy removal means you can switch out other devices or items to the same locations as the situation merits. * The type of adhesive protects walls and surfaces from other products which cause holes, remove paint or gum things up with glues that are hard to remove. Tips: When you affix something with it please be sure to move it back and forth a little as you push in, it helps the pieces meet more snugly. If you use it to do our idea of affixing cloth or things to cloth or yarn items be aware that the hold is really secure and only do it if you feel the item wont be snagged in some way. With our knitted items it doesn't hurt anything but we do carefully tug at it instead of just pulling. Clean the area first and allow to dry before using on a wall type surface. Allow some time, a few minutes, before putting an item to hang off of it and be sure to put pressure running your finger down the entire strip when you place it down so no air bubbles or gaps exist. Sometimes putting the pull tab toward the top can keep it from showing if you're space crunched. Place the tabs in different directions so that gravity or occasional vibration isn't as likely to effect the 'hold'. Place the tabs in a single direction at the same locations from place to place throughout the house and only remove it and switch out things from the direction away from the tab. So if the tab is on the west side of the picture only remove it from the east. That way all the pictures will have the same pattern to follow no matter what their size and will be less likely to peel off the surface. If you use it in a kitchen area for something don't put it in a really hot or greasy area if you want it to last longer. (Humidity could relax the hold.) The only con really is that sometimes the little 'hairs' on them start to mash in a bit so just be sure to follow what I said above about wiggling it a bit as you affix the items. Enjoy!

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).

Ruined My Wall!

By Nicolelyn33

from Waterloo, IA, United States

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

I just used the medium strips that are supposed to hold 12 pounds for a picture that easily weighs less than 5 pounds. It not only fell off my wall, it ripped the paint and a layer of my wall off my wall! This is not the first time I have used and had issues with these strips. They have come off before when I've used strips that were supposedly supposed to hold more weight than what I've tried putting up. I will not be using these anymore. Never again.

Great for antique picture frames!

By jjzmgailey1

from Saint Johns, FL, United States

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

I bought a picture at an antique store that had no hardware on the back of the frame. I was very hesitant to install anything for fear of cracking the gorgeous wood frame. These Medium Picture Hanging Strips came to the rescue because it worked perfectly for the back of the frame and even better, I didn't have to put a hole in the wall for a nail! Thanks, Command!

Love these!

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

These are the best when you are renting and don't want to end up with holes in your walls. I have almost everything in my house hanging with them. Plus, if I change my mind, or worse, hang something and later realize it is uneven, I can easily fix it.

Use these all the time

By sahmcolorado

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

I love these strips. I find it so much easier to use these than to locate nails where I want a picture to hang. Plus, when I change my mind about where I have things, I can move them without having to repair nail holes. They are a little expensive, but worth it to me. I'm never without a pack of these in the house.

frame strips

By jerribeary

from Valrico, FL

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

I moved into my home 4 years ago and have been avoiding hanging the pictures but last week I decided to go ahead and by the frames and the nails to just do it anyway. I have only used Command srips 2 times before to hang a wreath but sopmeone bought my son a Hot Wheels track that has to be assembled to the wall and it came with Command Strips. After I assembled it and relized how strong and easy they are I thought "hey why don't I use them to hang the pictures". So I returned the nails and used the strips and I am sooo pleased I did. It was so easy and pleasent knowing that I don't have to put alot of holes in the walls. Who ever thought of these things are a genius!!!!!

large decorative plate

By Anonymous

from North Carolina

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

Our children gave us a large NYC Decorative Plate. We wanted to display but it was too large to sit on a shelf. We used Command Strips to hang it on the wall. Using 4 strips (top;bottom/sides) we were able to place it on our dining room wall. It has been hanging there for many months and is completely secured. Hanging a plate can be difficult but with these strips it was easy & safe to do. No damage to the plate or wall. Made me a convert of these strips. I've since used them to hang a clock and several photo frames. I also started using the small hooks to hang indoor Christmas lights - second year for using those. Work great!!

Hanging Decorative plates

By EETRN

from Undisclosed

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

I wanted to hang four decorative plates in my kitchen but didn't want to use nails or hangers that would be visible. I used Command strips, carefully attaching them to the back of the plates. I followed the directions on the package, and they have been hanging securely on the wall for over two months! I'm very happy with the results.

Found the instructions lacking in specificity. Hard to follow and understand. Mentions the "red" liner, but, cannot find it. Please rewrite the instructions for clarity. Comments are based only on the instructions not on the quality of the product once I can figure out how to get beyond the instructions.

Great product, especially for a college student like me. I'm able to bring along all of my frames from home and make my dorm feel like home, which is definitely a great feeling. I don't have to worry about damaging the walls which is a good feeling, since you really don't want to have to pay more than you already have to. I would absolutely recommend this product, or any other product with the command strip brand name.

Great news for freshly painted walls

By Sylvia

from Lancaster, PA

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

We just moved into a new home with freshly painted walls. I was ready to decorate but didn't want to put nail holes all over my new walls. I tried the medium picture strips, and boy, am I ever happy I did! They are still hanging strong after months of being up. I also changed the positioning of some of the pictures and they came off cleanly...just as they said they would. I am very happy with my command strips and I will be a forever customer.

Had a quilted wall hanging. Was reluctant to nail pictures, etc on walls as I like to change from time to time. Used the Hanging strips on my quilted wall hanging. Now I can enjoy my picture, and I can always move it whenever I want to. You've solved all my picture hanging problems.

Command Strips

By JHar

from New Jersey

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

I rent and use command strips through out the house so I don't have to repair holes before moving. I recently used command strips to hang a wall of 15 to 20 photos. They worked wonderfully and even allowed me to straighten and reposition the photos a bit. I am very happy with the product, only complaint is that a project like this gets to be expensive.

3M Hooks

By Dixie

from Undisclosed

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

I'm sitting here looking at the two large brown spots on my wall. It happened last Christmas when I removed two large 3M hooks - you know your product that supposedly doesn't damage walls? It did hold my garland nicely however the nail holes that I patched and painted the year before that are not visible which is a helluva lot more than I can say about your product. I promised myself I wouldn't go that route again. It's been nine months now. I guess I forgot. I would like to thank you yet again for the nice big brown spot in my hallway where your product once again ripped the paint right off the wall. I followed your instructions to a "t". Your product does not deliver and I think I deserve a refund.

Perfect for a multi-frame arrangement

By rogerd

from Austin, TX

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

I had to hang a grouping of five small canvases, all of different sizes and at different heights, that required very precise alignment. Also, because the pictures would be only an inch apart, they all had to stay perfectly vertical - any tilt would be apparent. So, these strips were a great solution. Minor tweaks to position and alignment were easy, and everything lined up perfectly. Trying to do that with nails and the sawtooth hangers on the art would have been very difficult. Plus some tilting is inevitable with sawtooth hangers as the balance is never perfect. (Of course, there's a Command stabilizer product for that, too!) I even had a chance to check the easy removal feature. One of the pieces was initially positioned incorrectly, and removing the wall-mounts by pulling on the tab worked amazingly well. About the only disadvantage I see is that the art is quite snug against the wall. I normally like a little more air circulation behind the art to avoid picture-sized marks on the wall after a few years. Minor issue, though, particularly since these strips aren't recommended for wallpaper and paint is easy to fix.

These are great for so many things other than picture hanging! I use them on anything within the weight limit that I need to remove often like whiteboards, power strip, and more... Love it! I buy them every chance I get even if I don't need them right then because I never know what new thing I'll think of!!!

I bought a package after our wedding to hang some pictures we go. I went back a few days later for two more packs to hate a mirror and a frame. Thanks. These aree great Put one on each side at the top corners and it will hang really level and allow you to hang heavy thing. The mirror is quite heavy and it is nice level and sturdy. The best part is I rent so the walls will not be all messed up when I leave, which means more deposit back for me

Moving Help

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

My family and I recently moved from Nevada to Arkansas. In the process we went from owning our home to renting. I had tried some of the other 3M Command products with good results, so when I realized that I didn't want to ruin walls in a rental I picked up a few packages of the Command picture strips. A couple of hours later all of our personal items were hanging without a single hole! Now our new house feels like home and I don't have to worry about losing our deposit when we take everything down. Thanks 3M!

I WILL SURELY RECOMMEND THESE TO EVERYONE I KNOW.
