Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Styg Excellent product
I have hung about 30 different items over the last 8 years using 3M Command strips. All have remained secure and not one has fallen off. As written in the directions, I attach the strips to the wall and the frame and let them set for at least 1 hour before sticking the frame to the wall. Of course, once you stick a strip to the wall, you shouldn't try to peel it off and reposition it, even if you do it immediately.
When it comes to removing the strips from the wall, I've never had any damage -- the product works like it's supposed to. The one exception was when my wife removed the strips, and not knowing how to remove them, just peeled them off. Still, out of 20 strips, only two caused damage when removed in this way.
We do live in a dry climate, so I can't vouch for how well the product works in a humid environment.

I used these strips and followed the directions - in fact was overcautious and added extra strips. Something that would come back to haunt me. I was awoken two nights in a row to pictures crashing from the wall and shattering across my brand new laminate floor. The first night only left two small gouges that were barely noticeable. The second scratched the floors and now I need to replace floors that are literally days old. I decided to take the pictures down and replace them with nails. I followed the directions and the paint came off of the walls to add insult to injury. The walls were painted by the previous owners weeks ago and so now I need to replace both the floors and the paint. This product is absolute rubbish and in would not recommend it to anyone.

I have a whiteboard that weighs approximately 12 pounds. I had no idea how to hang it on the wall as I did not want to damage the wall but even more importantly... I needed the whiteboard to lay very flat against the wall even after purchasing these and bringing them home, I thought they would never hold the weight it's been 6 weeks hot and humid and the whiteboard is firmly and I do mean firmly positioned on the wall. I recommend these to you & I will definitely use them again.

I use these picture hanging strips all around my house. I love them! I especially use them in my toddler's room. He loves to climb and grab everything he can reach. I use these strips for hanging all the wall decorations. He can touch but it doesn't fall or become crooked. I have even used them in my room to hold a head board I designed out of large picture frames. It holds them tightly in place without the worry of falling down or over on us while we sleep.

My wife got these command strips to hang up my diploma frame. It seemed like a good idea, and we did not have to put any holes in the wall. I had always heard that command strips were great, so I figured why not. Then one night, maybe 3 or 4 months after we had put the frame up, we had gone to bed, and I heard this loud crash. I walked out into the living room, and there was my diploma frame lying on the floor. Thankfully, it landed on the carpet, and the glass did not shatter, but my wood frame was completely destroyed. If you have ever bought a frame for your diploma, you know how expensive they are. My frame was within the weight limit at around 3.6 pounds. I would recommend not using this product, as anything you hang on these strips risks falling and being damaged, or in my case, destroyed.

I bought a large package of these in black because I didn't want to risk damaging a home we lease. As others have mentioned my artwork cam crashing down. I even added two sets for a less than 8lb piece thinking the 16lb strength would assure it would not fall. It fell. I am sad because I really want these to work!!

Not sure what the other reviewers' situations were, but I love Command Strips. I finally read the instructions a while back and realized you must prepare surface - I take cotton ball with a little alcohol on it. Wipe the wall. Let dry. Apply strips. Wait few min, may BE longer then hang the object. Works GREAT for me! :-)
