OK, OK.

I'll do it tomorrow. I have lots of spare adhesive pads.

This summer we removed a couple of them from our 2008 5.0 after purchasing it from the previous owner. Not sure how long they had been up there (could have been as long as 7 years) but they removed without any damage at all. (They were on the wall outside the fridge and the microwave cupboard)

I haven't noticed any specifically for wet conditions. I would think the regular ones like you used should work just fine, as there is really no way for water to affect them.

Good luck in your Command Hook removal tomorrow. You can always jut buy a bigger one to cover the patch you pull off.

First time I removed one, I didn't read the instructions and I did cause damage. Ended up putting the new one ( brushed nickel ) right back where the white plastic one had been.

I remember Glenn posting about problems and not reading the instructions... pay attention! The one thing I learned from his posts... is MAKE SURE before you put one of those Command hooks up in the first place. Is whatever you're trying to mount, in the position you want it to be permanently? I've learned to really, really think about it....

YMMV

Actually, I've repeated often, when it comes to the Command hooks, "read and save the instructions". You can move them as often as you like as long as you have adhesive pads and follow the instructions.

Holes, on the other hand, are permanent.

Pix to come

Yep, Command now has a line of items made specifically for the bath (or other wet areas). Purchased a couple of the small bins but have to wait for our trailer to see if they work or not ... ;-)
