Decorating Your Walls is as Easy as "Stick & Click'' with Command Picture Hanging Strips; 3M Introduces the Newest Innovation To Hang Pictures, Artwork, Crafts and More

Whether using nails, screws or complex hooks to hang objects, all of these tools require careful precision and skill and can ultimately damage your walls. Now, 3M is introducing Command picture hanging strips - the latest evolution in wall-hanging technology - to make it easy and hassle-free to hang pictures, artwork, crafts or other small items.

Command picture hanging strips hold on strongly and come off cleanly, so you no longer need to triple-check to make sure a picture is level or placed "just right." Just like other Command products, these Command picture hanging strips use a unique stretch release technology allowing you to easily change wall hangings without leaving surface damage, nail holes or residue behind. Hanging items is as easy as "stick and click" - just stick the Command strips to the wall and object to be hung, and click the strips together.

"From struggling to find a stud to worrying about wall damage, people face countless challenges when hanging pictures and other items," says George Diaz, business unit manager for 3M's Command Adhesive products. "Command picture hanging strips eliminate those problems and give people the freedom and flexibility to experiment endlessly with their wall decor."

Command picture hanging strips are available in two sizes: small and medium. Each set of medium strips holds up to 3 pounds and four sets can be used to hold an object up to 10 pounds. Small strips can be used to hold items up to 4 pounds with each set holding 1 pound.

Sold nationally at home, decorating, mass merchandise and discount stores, the suggested retail price ranges from $5.49 to $7.99 according to size. For more information, visit
