You did not have that wall reinforced, did you? Do they just tap on the wall to see where a stud is or you put those up?

Sometimes, it cooler or wet weather, all the hooks are occupied with towels, clothes, jackets, toiletry gear, etc. The Umbras really help keep the minimal counter & table space free.
They are very nice hooks . Pat

Cathy, I was going to install with 2" VHB tape, which others have talked about in another thread. Apparently works well...Karen

Groma,
About 18.5 inches but, if you mount the Umbra all the way to top edge of the wall molding, the 5 hook mounts easily with VHB tape. No holes. And no trimming of the Umbra is necessary.

We have some individual hooks. I wonder how it is that the VHB tape does not pull the covering off of the wall. We were going to use screws in some maybe. Also may try the backing that comes with Command hooks as there is extra in a package.
