I wanted to hang a 200" sheer scarf over the windows above my patio doors and looked for some kind of hook that would not require nails in my wall. I found these and the reviews looked okay, so I ordered them. I needed four hooks and since I was afraid that the medium weight hooks that came in a 4-pack might not hold, I ordered two packs of the heavy duty that only came in 3-packs. What a waste of money. I followed the directions exactly, even allowing one hour for them to "set" when they advise 30 minutes. I have ten foot ceilings and it's difficult to reach that high so I wanted to be sure they were secure on the first try. I put the scarf up and got it arranged in just a couple of minutes and was pleased with the look. Fifteen minutes later, one of the hooks came down. I got the ladder back out, climbed up, put a new sticker seal on the hook and tried again. When I got up this morning, two more (different) hooks had come down. Out came the ladder again and I re-applied more sticker tape and before I got off the ladder, the last hook and the first one that came down were both on the floor. I gave up and just hammered a small nail into each of the hooks, which I could have done in the first place for a lot less money and a lot less aggravation!! I would not recommend this product to anyone who needs to hang anything. Those commercials that show numerous belts, ties and various articles of clothing being held up by these hooks are nothing but BS. Save your time and money. This scarf weighed less than one pound and four of the large hooks couldn't hold it.
