To make sure your picture’s going to be hanging perfectly straight, slide the red toggles up and then adjust the precise height of each nail head. Slide the toggles back down again to lock them in position. Whether you’re mounting pictures, shelves or ornaments, you’ll be amazed how useful it is to be able to adjust the height of these things.

Removing an Adjustable Adhesive Nail

Take hold of the nail head with one hand and the exposed tab at the bottom of the Adhesive Strip with the other. Now, without pressing the nail onto the surface, simply pull straight downwards towards the floor (NOT away from the surface or diagonally). This gently releases the thousands of tiny bonds that form the adhesive surface.
