Key tips to know before applying Command™ Hooks:
Wipe wall with rubbing alcohol. Do not use household cleaners or water, as they can leave slippery residue.
Separate strips. Remove red liner. Press adhesive to hook.
Remove black liner. Press hook firmly to wall for 30 seconds. If you can see the tab of the strip, you are all done! Wait one hour before use. If not, complete steps four to six.
To reinforce strip, temporarily remove hook from wall. Slide hook up and off base.
Press base firmly for 30 seconds.
Slide hook back on. Wait one hour for adhesive to build.
For two-piece hooks: Slide hook up and off.
For one-piece hooks: go to step two.
Gently hold hook or mounting base in place.
Never pull away from wall. Stretch the strip slowly against the wall (at least 38 cm) to release.
