Using the tesa® Adjustable Adhesive Screw for Wallpaper & Plaster 1kg

It can seem pretty daunting drilling holes in your nice neat wallpaper. But now there’s a removable, reusable screw that’s perfect for mounting objects with pre-drilled holes without damaging such sensitive surfaces. Not suitable for the following surfaces: vinyl wallpaper or non-stick surfaces (e.g. silicon, PTFE).

Steps

Cleaning the surface.

01

Get the surface nice and clean

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

Applying the Adhesive Strip

02

Peel the Adhesive Strips from their backing

Using the tabs at the end of each Adhesive Strip, remove them from their protective foil making sure you don’t touch the adhesive surface. Position the strips vertically to the wallpaper, with the blue tabs at the bottom and facing the wall.

Activate the Powerstrips® Technology

Press down firmly across the whole surface of each strip for at least 5 seconds – this’ll activate the Powerstrips® Technology and ensure a good, strong bond.

Next, remove the protective foil from both strips and align a screw with the top edge of each one, keeping the screw heads at the top. Then simply fold each screw down onto the adhesive surface immediately above the grey line.

06

Adjust the screws

To adjust the screws’ positions, push the red toggle up so you can move the screw head to the desired position. Once each screw is at the height you want, just slide the red toggle back down into its locked position and remove the detachable nuts from the screw heads.

Now mount your object

Thread the screws through the pre-drilled holes and replace the nuts. Whether it’s a small shelf as in the example or something else altogether like a speaker fitting or entryphone, these Adjustable Adhesive Screws can be used to mount just about anything up to 1kg - and two of them will hold twice that.

Removing an Adjustable Adhesive Screw

There’s really nothing simpler. Hold of the screw head with one hand and with your other hand grip the exposed tab at the bottom of the Adhesive Strip. Without pressing the screw back onto the surface, pull straight downwards (NOT away from the surface or diagonally). This action releases the thousands of individual bonds that constitute the adhesive very gradually, leaving your wallpaper unmarked.
