Re: To stick or to suction -- getting hooked

Oh No! This is exactly why I had these sent to Canada so Reace could do this for us ... I had a feeling it wouldn't be as easy as it seemed.

Re: To stick or to suction -- getting hooked

My 3M hooks have been mounted for three years now with no issues, but it only goes below freezing infrequently.
I used double sided tape for the paper towel holder ( under the cabinet ) and may finally have to add the screws, since after three years, I am still happy with the location.

I asked Dan and E how Reace mounted theirs and he did it as I thought he might have - drill and screwed in the space behind where the hook folds up. The screws are still hidden and give it a solid mount.

And an important note for anyone planning to cut off one hook to fit the refrigerator wall - There is a steel hinge pin that runs between the hooks! Don't ask me how I know, but boy those fine toothed 10" miter saw blades sure are expensive...
Thanks for the heads up on that! I would have ruined a blade too. I will have to cut by hand until I reach the metal and cut thru it with a metal blade in my Dremel Multitool or some such procedure.

Re: To stick or to suction -- getting hooked

I'll put my vote in for suction cup hooks, bathroom mirror and toothpaste/brush holder. The suction cups lock down well for a couple trips. I end up removing them occasionally to make sure they don't loose their grip while driving.

Re: To stick or to suction -- getting hooked

We have several 3M hooks - in the bath and around and on the trailer door. The furnace in our 5.0 is directly across from the door so stuff hanging there dries real quick.
