The Command(TM) Traditional Brushed Nickel Hooks are part of our Command(TM) General Purpose line and aren't intended for hanging your pictures. This is also noted on the package instructions. Instead, we have our Command(TM) Picture Hanging Strips and some specific picture hanging hooks we'd recommend. Our Command(R) Picture Hanging Strips come in small, medium, and large sizes. Each set of small strips can hold up to 1 lb (use up to 4 sets for 4 lbs total), each medium set holds 3 lbs (use up to 4 sets for 12 lbs total), and our large sets hold 4 lbs each (use up to 4 sets for 16 lbs total).
We also offer 5 lb and 8 lb picture hanging hooks for wire-backed and sawtooth pictures. Only the packages that say Picture and Frame Hanging in the upper left hand corner can be used for picture hanging. Thank you!
