As a 3M employee, I was able to try the very first Command Designer hooks when my boss got a package of them. Since then, I have used them for so many things. We have a beautiful new house with lots of woods on the walls such as Ash, Hickory, Natural Oak, etc. My husband has done so many wonderful creative things with wood, I absolutely cannot put any nails in, but I can sure use the Command Designer hooks, that match our lighting and designs in our home. The fireplace gets all the stockings hung at Christmas, then I can just take the hooks off afterwards, and no holes!! Robe hooks on the backs of solid oak doors. Hooks in my closets for different things like belts and scarves, etc. Hooks for coats in the entry way. Thank you for these fantastic products and all the choices of hardware such as nicket, brass, etc.
