Removable, reusable and – of course – adjustable, these powerful little things are perfect for mounting whatever you want without drills, hammers, noise, mess and hassle - or damage to your surfaces.

Steps

Cleaning the surface.

Cleaning the surface.

01

Clean the tiles

Use a dust-free cloth and a little alcohol or methylated spirit to remove dirt and grease. You can use detergent, too, but be sure to find one that doesn’t contain silicone as this can leave a non-stick residue. Make sure your surface is dry before moving on to the next step.

Remove the Adhesive Strips from their backing

Remove the Adhesive Strips using the handles and without touching the adhesive surface. Apply the strips vertically to your freshly cleaned, dry tiling.

06

Adjust the nails

Here’s the really clever bit. Push the red toggle up and you can adjust the height of each nail head so that your herb shelf is perfectly level (or so your pictures or ornaments a perfectly aligned). Once you’ve got it at the height you want, just slide the toggle back down into its lock position.

Mount your object

These Adjustable Adhesive Nails are great for anything up to 3kg, or 6kg if you’re using two of them and perfect for any non-flat-backed objects like pictures and clocks. And because they’re removable and reusable you can move them around as often as you want if you want to shake things up a bit.

Removing an Adjustable Adhesive Nail

It takes just a second or two to move or remove an Adhesive Nail. Take hold of the nail head between thumb and forefinger and with your other hand take hold of the exposed tab. Now, without pressing the nail onto the surface, pull straight downwards - NOT away from the surface - to release the thousands of individual bonds that make up the adhesive surface.
