Is this good at holding a picture frame?
I don't want to put nails in the wall.

Thanks.

As per the back of the package "light weight artwork", so think of this as a stronger tape. Probably won't hold a frame too long.

The most you'll likely be able to hold up is that bristol board Dollarama sells. Anything heavier, probably need the command strips.

Should be fine with "1lb" frames like these from Ikea ( up to 30x40cm ) ... https://www.ikea.com/ca/en/cat/picture- ... mes-18746/

It also depends how many thumb size putties are used. If four hold 1 lb, 8 should hold 2 lbs for example. This mounting putty is also rated for " 1lb " but it can support a person if enough of it is applied ...

You also have to watch out for humidity. They dry up and not worth the risk of frames falling. Just from my experience. I had bought 3-4 brands of "putty" and even the bristol board fell off eventually after a few weeks.

Possibly because of "wicking". Maybe the reason why some reviewers complain about the putties leaving stains on the wall. Plastic, metal and glossy materials should work well/better with most putties.

wicking ...
