Climate and Temperature


What can happen to Command™ Products in Extreme Heat or highly humid climates?

The adhesives on Command products may soften at temperatures above 40°C. If you are expecting a heatwave, it is recommended you remove any picture frames and then re-mount when weather conditions return to normal. In highly humid locations within the home such as in the bathroom or in parts of the country that experiences regular high humidity, try our special Water-Resistant line of products (blue strip) which are clearly marked on our packaging.

Product Information and Use


Can I use more than one hook if I want to hang an item that's heavier than the weight listed on the package?

No. We don't recommend it. Weight may not be distributed equally and can result in failure.

  • Command adhesive products will last indefinitely when used in accordance with our pack instructions.

  • Hooks are perfect for hanging inside cupboards, closets, lockers or on display in kitchens, laundries, entryways, bedrooms, bathrooms, boats and campers. Most packages of hooks come with extra strips so the hooks can be reused or repositioned.

    Picture Hanging Strips are great for hanging one or multiple picture frames without wall damage. We also have dedicated picture hangers that suit frames with sawtooth and wire-back attachments, easle back stands and canvases. Our diverse range of products help you be more organised, whether it's mounting mops and brooms or hanging up decorations for your next celebration.

  • Simply heat up the base plate with a hair dryer to soften the adhesive. Then use dental floss to gently cut through the foam to remove the hook or hanger from the surface. Stretch or peel off the remaining adhesive. See How to Use

  • The one-hour wait ensures that the adhesive has had enough time to build strong adhesion to the wall or surface.

  • Many household and window cleaners leave behind a very thin layer of residue that affects how strongly the adhesive will bond to the surface. Use Isopropyl Alcohol or window cleaning solution available through chemists or local hardware stores. Methylated spirit is not recommended.

  • No. Command™ Strips contain an adhesive that is a synthetic rubber resin and does not contain natural rubber latex.
