Attach the nail to the strip

Take off the protective foil where you see the Powerstrips® emblem. Align the nail with the top edge of the strip, ensuring that the head of the nail is at the top, then fold the nail down onto the adhesive immediately above the grey line.

Mount your object

If deer-head ornaments aren’t your ‘thing’, you can use Adhesive Nails to mount just about anything, from pictures and pinboards to lightweight clocks and small decorative mirrors in your living room, hall or bedroom. You can always use two nails for twice the holding power. And because they’re removable and reusable, you can move things around as often as you want.

How to remove an Adhesive Nail

Just take a hold of the nail head with one hand and grip the exposed tab with the other. Now here’s the trick: without pressing the nail onto the surface, 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.
