How to use the tesa® Adhesive Nail for Tiles & Metal 4kg

Our Adhesive Nails are quick and simple to use. No hammering or sore thumbs, and no holes left behind when you remove them, either. Before you get mounting things, though, please have a look through our step-by-step guide. Not suitable for wallpaper, plaster, copper, brass, marble, coated paper or non-stick and porous materials.

Cleaning the surface.

01Clean the surface thoroughly

Clean the surface you want to attach the nail to with a dust-free cloth and a little rubbing alcohol or methylated spirit to remove any dirt or grease. (Steer clear of detergents that contain silicone, though, as this can interfere with the nail’s adhesion). Make sure your surface is dry before mounting your Adhesive Nail.

Applying an Adhesive Strip

02Position the Adhesive Strip

Remove the Adhesive Strip using the handle and without touching the adhesive area itself, carefully apply the strip vertically to the surface.

Activate the Powerstrips® Technology.

03Attach the strip

Press down firmly across the entire surface for 5 seconds to activate the Powerstrips® Technology.

07How to remove the Adhesive Nail

To remove an Adhesive Nail, take the head of the nail between thumb and forefinger and with your other hand take hold of the exposed tab. Without pressing the nail onto the surface, gently stretch the Adhesive Strip parallel to the wall and NOT away from it, releasing the tiny polymer bonds that make up the adhesive surface.
