Command hooks

Is anyone else having trouble getting Command hooks to stick? I've cleaned the walls with alcohol, pressed and held the hook in place and they still fall off. I haven't tried hard,but high bond tape didn't stick either. Any suggestions?

I've never cleaned the surface with anything and I've never had a problem with them sticking. What are you trying to stick to?

We only use them on the fiberglass, Ginger. You would have to remove them carefully elsewhere but it can be done.

I just have a problem taking them off! The little piece that hangs down always rips off for me. Never had a problem with 'em sticking - either right away or later. I've used them on the wood, fiberglass and vinyl walls. Both large and small sizes. Are you following the directions?

Weird, if you are, that they're not working.

I use them on any hard surface, but you must follow and save the instructions for removal, or you will cause damage to the 'oak' panels.

This really confuses me! I've put them on the oak panel and a day or two later they are on the floor. I use them all over my house with no problems. Maybe it's a bad batch. I've got another package that I will try. Thanks for input.

Hmmm. I wonder if maybe you are not pulling off the right part?? That is unusual for sure. That is papery stuff you are putting them on and you are lucky that they did not just take some of that papery stuff with them.

Ginger, you could have a 'bad batch', but make sure you prep/clean the surface with some Isopropyl Alcohol, and that you press and hold the strip firmly in place for at least 30 seconds. I've never had one fail doing that.

Maybe it's the climate/temperature. I live in an area where it is extremely hot in the summer and I have trouble with them coming off too. Have had the same problem with using VHB tape. Stays on great till summer hits, then off they come once summer has arrived in full swing.
