Questions & Answers


Can these clips be used for C9 bulbs/light strings? If not, is there one that can? Thanks!

Asked by MichiganLights December 17, 2020

I used mine for icicle lights. I think modern C9 lights would do fine also.

Can these be used to hang icicle lights?

Asked by Kat December 5, 2020

Yes. I have C9 bulbs hanging from mine. Just make sure to use rubbing alcohol to clean the mounting surface before. it does say wait one hour between mounting the clips and hanging lights to them. My clips are mounted to siding with no issues so far.

I live in the north east, it's cold in the winter and hot in the summer. If I mount these on the ...

Asked by Dave November 8, 2020

Hello - Thank you for asking. We recommend that they be replaced with the seasons.

Do they attach to wood

Asked by Sandra May 17, 2020

Yes. I have had mine attached to wood trim across my screen porch to hold Christmas lights. They have been left in place for a few years. Only one so far has needed a sticker to be replaced. Also use them to hang medium wreaths on my porch windows and they have held well. Just be sure the surface you put them on is clean and dry first.

I have the clips. Do they sell just the sticker part?

Asked by PatioGirl May 14, 2020

Yes, they do just package and sell the sticker part.

How can i know who to believe when half your reviews say these hooks are useless and the other half give them five stars?????

Asked by Sue December 22, 2019

Sue, Wipe dry the surface before placing clips on. If it's humid, continually wipe before clip goes on. Once clip is placed, press with pressure for 20-30 seconds. The product works great, if you follow the steps!! Remember to save the extra sticky tabs, you'll use them again. Save the clips and stickies in a plastic sandwich bag for future use. Chino

Will these stick to hardi plank?

Asked by Terr October 9, 2019

It's difficult for the adhesive tab to grab onto a textured surface. (No) better to use a smooth surface.

Will they stick to brick ?

Asked by TJ November 30, 2018

I really can't speak as to brick as my house is on a concrete foundation and I only use them on my porch and siding. They did hold up a heavy garland w/lights as well as all my Christmas lights even when the temperature dropped below zero ! As a mater of fact were getting ready to use them again for the Christmas holiday.

Can they be used on vinyl siding and removed without damaging the siding?

Asked by NT December 9, 2017

Yes, they work perfectly on the siding.....have not removed them yet....will do so after Jan 1.

Great product. I used it to hold wreaths on my windows. Held very well. Easy to run wiring almost invisibly along window trim. These remove easily when it’s time.

These hold very well to the outside of the house when on rough wood to hang Christmas snowflake lights.

Easy to install and holds perfectly
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] These Command outdoor clips were easy to install along the inside of our backyard patio awning. I highly recommend using these if you are attaching any items outdoors these work perfectly and you won’t need many to get the job done with these lightweight string lights. We attached with the included double sided strips one clip for every 2 feet in length of string lights worked great for 30 feet of lights. Has held up for weeks during 90+ degree temperatures. Love that they are water and UV proof.

Midwest Inland Hurricane Proof!
We purchased these clips to use on our shed last year for the Christmas lights so we didn't have to use a ladder for the gutters. Wasn't sure if they would stick and stay on while being exposed to our brutal, cold winters here in Iowa. Not only did they stay on for the holiday and the rest of the winter, but we had a Derecho - an inland hurricane of 140 MPH winds - trees, power lines, traffic signals, and more came down and were destroyed - but our clips are right where they were originally placed and can still hold lights! If that isn't holding power, I don't know what is!

worked great for hanging string lights
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I followed the directions and waited over an hour before hanging the lights with the clips. I tested them inside on my mantle and the lights are holding great. There was no damage to the surface. I think these are perfect for hanging different lights for year round use. The only drawback would be they are clear so you can see the adhesive backing and the tab to remove the clips. If you are hanging lights from the interior side of a porch, this would not be an issue.
by GrandmaPam
Strong hold
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] These outdoor Command clips really do a great job of letting me decorate and add lighting where I normally wouldn’t be able to. They have such a strong hold but yet are damage free and easy to remove and add again. Very easy to use with simple directions. Being outdoors they are subjected to rain, cold, heat, but never give up and fall off. My lights stay up even in strong wind.
by Beachgrl23
Great product!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Command outdoor Light Clips. Easy to install and holds up the strings lights nicely. I used these both indoors and outdoors. They work wonderfully. Make sure you follow the instructions, especially to wipe the area with rubbing alcohol before and hold for 30 seconds, let set for an hour and that's it! I love it! I definitely recommend!
by Luciana
Great product!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have always had trouble hanging lights in the past but not this year. This product just took the worry out of it. I had no trouble following the instructions to hang the hooks and I was hanging them on brick. They were instantly secure enough to hang my string of lights on. I love how they are clear plastic so they blend in. I am definitely excited about this product.
