How to adjust the nail

You can adjust the height of whatever you’re mounting – whether it’s a coat hook, spice rack, shelf or, as in this case, a picture. To make sure it’s lined up perfectly with those next to it, slide the red toggle up, move the nail head to the required position and then slide the toggle back down again to lock it in position.

Mount your picture

Each Adjustable Adhesive Nail can support 2kg (so two of them will hold 4kg) and is perfectly suited to non flat-backed objects like pictures and clocks. And because they’re removable and reusable, moving them around is the work of a moment.

Removing an Adjustable Adhesive Nail

It’s simplicity itself. Hold the nail head with one hand and the grip the tab at the bottom of the Adhesive Strip with other. Now, without pressing the nail onto the surface, pull straight downwards towards the floor (NOT away from the surface or diagonally). This will release the thousands of tiny bonds that form the adhesive surface and separate the nail from the wallpaper without leaving a mark.
