Thanks. I bet most of us can't help ourselves to a good deal and have packages of these sitting around from every time it drops to $1.50 and comes back in stock for order.

Crying Face Its not even an add on this time...ordered...again.

Nope nope nope. Eventually nearly every frame I tried to hang with these came crashing down in the night, after a few years at most. Each time they were well under the weight limit that they should have supported, though heavier side of things as far as frames go. I'm lucky that the glass on the paintings didn't shatter, but I had one fail on one side and not the other so the picture came down swinging and blew a big hole right into an adacent wall which resulted in me spending some quality time patching, taping, sanding and painting.

Just use an anchor and screw, or something like the High & Mighty hanging system which actually works long term.

For what ever reason, I thought this was meant to say NEGATIVE $1.50, like some of those weird in-store coupons that end up with a negative balance.

Still, bought 2 packs waiting for stock, but since I didn't actually need it anyways... it all works out.

It doesn't matter if the strip fails or the strips just pull the paint off your walls the results are the same. I'm just saying, don't trust these completely.
I guess they're good for renters but if you're going to be in the place for a while I would advise mechanical hanging, that's all.

Not reallly, the strip is only as good as the surface its mounted on. Smoother paint will stick better. What about moisture in the wall? Old dryer paint. Many factors to consider, not just under weight limit will stay up forever

I have had much better luck with High & Mighty like this:
https://www.amazon.ca/High-Mighty-Hillm ... 209&sr=8-3

They only leave little tiny holes in the wall that are easier to ignore or fill later, compared to drywall anchors.

If you're pretty sure you're always going to have something hung somewhere then a drywall anchor and a screw are cheap and foolproof.

I'm using these on things that have been up for 5 years. All under 10lbs though.
I use more strips than the prescribed allowable weight. I usually use 2 to 4 stripes.

For heavier items I do use a mechanical system. In this case these stripes are perfect for being used in addition to the mechanical anchor to prevent any movement.

FYI I asked in a previous thread if these would be good after a couple years in a drawer and the resounding answer was no, the adhesive degrades over time.

So wouldn't go too crazy and buy into every price drop, what you can use in a year is probably best.

I would say don't use these if you plan on hanging something precious forever. Everything else is fine

And yes they will dry out in the box after a few years
