01

Cleaning the surface

Cleaning your surface with a dust-free cloth will ensure optimal holding power. Always test the load-bearing capacity of your surface before mounting.

Removing the Adhesive Strip from its backing

Peel off an Adhesive Strip by taking hold of the tab at one end. Taking care not to touch the adhesive surface itself, press the strip vertically into position with the blue tab at the bottom, facing the wall.

Attach the nail to the strip

Take off the protective foil where you see the Powerstrip® emblem, and align the nail with the top edge of the strip – ensuring that the head of the nail is at the top – then simply fold the nail down onto the adhesive right above the grey line.

Mount the object

Your Adhesive Nail is great for anything up to 0.5kg, not just lightweight pictures (you can use two nails to double the holding power). And because they’re removable and reusable, you can move your photos, paintings and ornaments around as often as you want.

How to remove an Adhesive Nail

There’s nothing to it. Just take a light hold of the nail head with one hand (ensure you’re not pressing it onto the surface) and with your other hand take hold of the exposed tab. Now here’s the trick: gently stretch the Adhesive Strip down, parallel to the surface and NOT away from it. This action releases the thousands of tiny individual bonds that make up the adhesive surface, ensuring it comes away cleanly and without damaging your surface.
