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).

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

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!!!

Velcro strips

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!

Tons of RV uses

By alj338

from Hudson Valley, NY

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

I have used these all over my RV since buying it. Worked great for hanging a canvas so it does not move when we drive. Also used for installing the paper towel dispenser under the cabinets to not damage the cabinet. Used under the sink to hang up a dustpan for easy access and plan on using to install a rack on the inside of the cabinet doors as well. The uses for command products in general are amazing when it comes to RV's.

Missing parts

By Sue Nami

from Ohio, United States

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

Bought medium picture strips at Amazon. The product received was written completely in Spanish. And, as another reviewer stated, it was missing the other half of the Velcro team; rendering them absolutely useless. I'm wondering if they are a counterfeit product.

So quick and easy!

By chichiwvu

from Huntsville, AL, United States

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

I received a sample pack of these, and liked them so much I went to buy more! They are very quick and easy to use. I hung my pictures in a matter of seconds and 5 months later they are still holding up my decorations. I like the velcro because if I don't place it correctly I can still unattach easily to line it up right. This is definitely a product I will buy again.

Textured plaster wall

By joncam

from Vancouver, WA, United States

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

I bought these to hang my daughter's puzzles on the wall. The puzzles are light and going on a textured plaster wall. They do not hold the puzzle up. I find things on the floor all the time. I am back to trying to find something that will hold her puzzles up. I am glad the puzzle was not in a glass frame or she could have gotten cut up by broken glass.
