I was skeptical when I first bought these to hang solar lights across my fence on the dark side of the house. I thought to myself "there is NO WAY these will hold up through all the seasons," even though I have never been disappointed in any of the Command products I use. Much to my surprise, over a a year later, they have survived torrential rains, snowstorms, very high heat and humidity, and gusting winds. How did you do that, 3M? I simply cleaned the small area of my 6 ft white fence where I was going to place the hooks, and followed the directions. I might add, the light string on my solar lights is a very, very fine wire. I had to put a small piece of tape over it to keep it in place, but that was not a big deal, and well worth it.

I love to decorate for all the seasons. I even hang pink lights up in spring inside around my windows. Since the command photos showed hangers on lights outside of windows it has to work on inside of windows. Right? No they don't. Followed the instructions for placing the hangers. My husband and I put the lights up together a round my big front window inside. I was so happy it looked great UNTIL... I heard a pop and all the lights fell off on the floor. The lights were very small LED lights that that had no weight at all. It looked so nice and organized after we first put them up. I traded my ugly thumb tacks for the command hooks. I just wish they worked. How disappointing. I had so many great idea and uses for the command products I had in mind. I am very sad. I love to organize its a pass time yo could say. So that really adds to my sorrow all the great ideas that I will never get to try.

So Dissapointed

By Torriiee2

from Lawrenceburg, TN, United States

Comments about COMMAND 1029650 Command Clear Outdoor Light Clips 16/Pack (17017CLR-AW):

I bought 3 packs of these yesterday. I went through the first pack last night. I ended up having to throw away over half of the strips because they wouldnt stick. These are too expensive to need to toss that many.

great for lights and cords

By IrishAnne

from Los Angeles, CA, United States

Comments about COMMAND 1029650 Command Clear Outdoor Light Clips 16/Pack (17017CLR-AW):

I used these outside for regular string Christmas lights and they held up all year until I removed them. I also use them to keep an extension cord tight up to the wall instead of nailing them into the wall. The tape is a little tough to remove and broke on a few occasions, but the clip didn't break. I have also have used them to hang decorations. It holds a bit better than the similarly sized clear hooks, but that may be because they are outdoor use instead of just indoor. Either way, I like using them indoors for decorating if I can.

Great idea but trying to remove the labels is a nightmare! Went thru allot with this package so only could use half of the package. A couple hooks did fall off regardless of me following the instructions.

Choose Your Surface Carefully

By narro87

from Portland, OR, United States

Comments about COMMAND 1029650 Command Clear Outdoor Light Clips 16/Pack (17017CLR-AW):

I bought two sets of these for outdoor lighting on my patio. The set stuck to my painted metal railing work great--no complaints. The set stuck to painted wood? Absolutely nightmarish. This is the third day I've had to replace strips as they keep falling off--and they're holding the lightest set of lights! I'm almost to the point of tearing them all down and going with finishing nails--which completely invalidates the entire point of buying these. Please keep that in mind if you use this product.

Save your Money, Do NOT buy!

Comments about COMMAND 1029650 Command Clear Outdoor Light Clips 16/Pack (17017CLR-AW):

These strips do not work outside. I followed all the instructions to the T and they constantly fell. Sometimes they would fall before I could even hang anything. I was using it on a painted wooden door, so it should have worked. Don't make the same mistake I made, save your money!

Horrible - they don't stuck and hold.

By NicoleSt

Comments about COMMAND 1029650 Command Clear Outdoor Light Clips 16/Pack (17017CLR-AW):

I bought these to string christmas lights in my kids rooms (indoor on smooth, clean painted wallls). I followed instructions, cleaned the wall, dried the area, held fir 30 seconds and within 5 minutes several clips had simply fallen off the walls. Over the next few days even more fell off. Two weeks later and not even half are still attached. Very dissapointed in this product. Other command hooks and strip have held up amazingly well and I love the product. But this one, totally fails. Not sure what's different about the clear sticky tabs vs the white ones, but I will never again splurge for the clear ones that were more expensive.

AWFUL PRODUCT!!!

Comments about COMMAND 1029650 Command Clear Outdoor Light Clips 16/Pack (17017CLR-AW):

I bought these for my lanai...out of the elements...I'm extremely upset as the clips were falling off immediately after I stuck and held them for over 30 seconds to the surface. I spent over $8 on the pack and they are useless!!! How can I get my money back or something??? I am using other Command products in my apartment and they work wonderfully but these are not working and I wasted my money

Disappointed

By Justin1983

from Santa Clarita, CA, United States

Comments about COMMAND 1029650 Command Clear Outdoor Light Clips 16/Pack (17017CLR-AW):

I bought a few packs of these strips so I could hang some lights around the edge of my mothers patio. The lights were just your standard small bulb lights, nothing heavy at all. I spaced them about 1 per every foot then hung the lights. About 2 days later all the clips wouldn't stick anymore and the lights were on the ground. It is the middle of summer but the package says up to 125 F so I'm not sure what the issue was. Oh and I made sure to clean and dry the surface of the metal patio cover before I hung the lights. Disappointed.

Can't tolerate the heat

By Jujunash

from Sacramento, CA, United States

Comments about COMMAND 1029650 Command Clear Outdoor Light Clips 16/Pack (17017CLR-AW):

I was thrilled when these clips held up strings of lights on our new Duralum patio cover. We used 2 packages and placed them every 6 inches to avoid sagging. But days later I went outside and found 4 out of 6 strands of lights shattered on the ground. I'm guessing the heat was too much for the adhesive. That was a very expensive lesson.

Works great in the pool area

By baseballmom

Comments about COMMAND 1029650 Command Clear Outdoor Light Clips 16/Pack (17017CLR-AW):

Quite a few months back (January) I visited my sister in Florida. Told her about these because she wanted lights hung up in the pool area. Drove around to specifically find the correct ones for outdoors. We hung her lights and they are still hanging without a problem. Even with the heat & humidity that they get in Sebring, they are staying strongly attached.

Poor Performance

By sadmom

Verified Buyer

Comments about COMMAND 1029650 Command Clear Outdoor Light Clips 16/Pack (17017CLR-AW):

The clip part is awesome! The issue seems to be in the outdoor adhesive strip. I was hanging a lightweight string of patio lights, using clips as directed (every 2 feet) and in one day it was all shattered on the ground :( I re-used the clips on an indoor project with a normal command strip and its perfect. Issue seems to be the outdoor strip??
I could not return to the store as I used all the outdoor strips, but now my stash of regular command strips is depleted. Totally bummed!

Used the outdoor clips to attach string lights to our patio. Came home to find the lights shattered on the ground. We added more hooks but the lights still fell. We are now out the cost of the hooks and 4 boxes of lights.

Huge Disappointment!

By MujerBonita

Comments about COMMAND 1029650 Command Clear Outdoor Light Clips 16/Pack (17017CLR-AW):

I bought 3 packs of these to put up my icicle Christmas lights and they were a huge disappointment! I followed the recommendations and was careful to wipe down the surfaces before placing the strips and holders on the house, but in different areas the adhesives were just not sticking. It was very frustrating to get the lights up and in place only to come out and find sections of them had fallen! I even tried using two adhesives to each holder and that didn't work either. I was trying not to put nails into the eves of the house, but ended up having to do just that.

Comments about COMMAND 1029650 Command Clear Outdoor Light Clips 16/Pack (17017CLR-AW):

I have probably 500 of these that I use for Christmas decorating. Outside, inside, on vinyl siding, painted gutters (with uneven surfaces!), interior walls, several even treated with venetian plaster! EVERYWHERE!! I love these!! I find they work best if I stick them and let them sit for a few minutes before I hang something. Thanks Command!!

Comments about COMMAND 1029650 Command Clear Outdoor Light Clips 16/Pack (17017CLR-AW):

Used to put up lights and came home to find clips and lights on ground. Thought if I placed more, closer together to distribute weight of lights - thought wrong. Product not made for outdoors - unless no change in temperature and no precipitation.

Comments about COMMAND 1029650 Command Clear Outdoor Light Clips 16/Pack (17017CLR-AW):

I got these hoping they were the cure my frustration with my Chirstmas lights. Nope. The backing of the sticker won't come off properly, so half of them weren't sticky and ruined. When I used up all the stickers for only half the hooks, it's been a waste. We use command products for everything, but there were far from useful.

Does not stick to interior Windows

By LSe129

Comments about COMMAND 1029650 Command Clear Outdoor Light Clips 16/Pack (17017CLR-AW):

I bought these clips to hang on the inside of my new windows to hang Christmas mini lights, but the adhesive does not stick even after waiting the time required! They pop right off of window when trying to hang the lights. Very expensive product that doesn't work! I am trying to avoid damaging my windows with nails! Need some type of better adhesive to adhere to vinyl!

outdoor clear light hooks

I bought these a couple of weeks ago. Put them up on smooth aluminum siding trim at roof line. 54 degree weather aided with a hair dryer. Waited a day before hanging lights. Two days later in 39/degree rain them fell off. What a terrible waste of time and money

Would not recommend

By Lynnberger

Comments about COMMAND 1029650 Command Clear Outdoor Light Clips 16/Pack (17017CLR-AW):

I bought these for Christmas 2013 to hang my mini lights in the windows. They worked great! The problem came for Christmas 2014. I searched everywhere for replacement strips and couldn't find them. I called your company and the guy said that I didn't need the clear refill strips and that, because I was using them inside the windows, that I could use the white refills. I went to Home Depot and bought the white refills and they worked fine until it came time to remove them. They will not come off. If the refills that work are not very affordable or available, then why buy these clips. I will not recommend these to anyone.

A complete disappointment!

By MD62

from Madison, NJ, United States

Comments about COMMAND 1029650 Command Clear Outdoor Light Clips 16/Pack (17017CLR-AW):

I had good luck with indoor clips last year and was excited to see an outdoor line, which I thought would allow me to put strings of mini-lights around my windows without using nails or otherwise causing damage. I followed the installation instructions carefully, but the adhesive does not stick to the aluminum cladding around the windows. Nearly all the clips popped off when I tried to install mini light strings. Temp at the time was around 45F. A waste of money.

Works great

By Desert nomad

Comments about COMMAND 1029650 Command Clear Outdoor Light Clips 16/Pack (17017CLR-AW):

My neighbor was going to hire someone to put up there holiday lights. I told them about the command strip outdoor light hooks, and said I thought we could do this without hiring some pros. We entourage out and made the purchase and about an hour or so later we put up the hooks with ease and completed a very nice lighting display using only the outdoor hooks. They just worked splendidly.
