Velcro on walls...

I think I read what type of wall material ETI uses, but I can’t remember the name. Will the glue on Velcro harm these walls?

Incidentally, it appears ETI uses roller style cabinet latches on the drawers...unfortunately, I’ll have to contact them because they forgot the peg or male half that attaches to the drawers. And that explains why my 2 drawers had crashed on the floor when I received delivery.

Command strip on the wall and velcro on the command strip, you can then remove the item from the velcro to refill or change batteries and if you want to remove or move the velcro you can do that as well without damaging your wall. Works for me.

Velcro will not harm the walls but removing it could. Cigarette lighter fluid will not harm the walls either, but it will soften the Velcro adhesive if you saturate it from the top and slowly “rolling” it off, applying more lighter fluid and allowing time for it to work as you slowly continue to roll the Velcro off. I’ve never tried using Command strips myself and I would think removing anything attached to the Velcro might tear them off damaging the paper veneer, but it sounds like it might be a viable method.

Ok.. my bad...I originally meant the simulated wood grain walls or partitions. But, now I see the soft touch padded walls is also good to know also. I guess it needs to be identified as to what we are talking about when responding.

I use 3M Command products. If you read and follow the instructions, they do not harm the wall. Save the instructions for removal.

Command also makes Velcro fasteners - comes with a command strip with Velcro that goes on the wall and a matching command strip with Velcro that goes on the item. Then connect the Velcro parts to hang. That way, the Velcro is easily removed from the wall and the item.

Yes, now that you say that I realize that I did buy some of them.
I remembered posting the original post awhile back and just copied and pasted that one here, I forgot about using the "new" (to me) model since posting that one.

I would not put anything on those vinyl covered walls. Any weight with tear the foam backing and there is no repair for that.
Put all your hooks on the cabinets.
