Yea or nay on those Hercules Hooks "As seen on TV"? Thanks ahead of time.
Keeper from Morganton, NC
Walgreens has these in *As seen on TV isle. Untill now I have
only seen these on QVC or HSN. When I go to Walgeens the first
isle is hit is the As seen on TV isle!!! Its fun to see what
they have there. Then you dont have to pay shipping!
Definitely a "Yay"! I have a very large (probably 24X36) picture hung on two of them. I had no problem putting them in the sheetrock. Good luck, and God bless you.
I didn't buy the Hercules Hooks, but found some at Big Lots that are just like them. I used one to hang a picture that I believe weighed about 50 lbs. It did it, and it was easy to hang. I will keep buying them for future heavy pictures. Very nice gift as well, or stocking stuffer!
Just a note - they're only good for wallboard, not lathe & plaster walls.
See Consumer Reports on them.
Last Christmas I bought my son-in-law a large framed picture of a deer, it weighs around 20 lbs or more. It is still hanging fine, my daughter was quite amazed.
I'd like to thank-you all for your feedback.Keeper
If you have plaster and lathe use a long nail to make a hole all the way thru and then use the hook in that hole. I hung a 30 lb mirror and it worked fine!
The hercules hooks are amazing a must try. You'll flip out at the weight they hold. Thank you so much.
These are great! I read some horrible stories about ordering them online or on the phone, but I found a box of 15 at Garden Ridge(TX) for $15 and they work great! I got some metal wall sconces for Christmas and wasn't sure how to hang them, but these are just right! The first one must have been on a stud because it wouldn't go in, but after moving over it went right in! I would highly recommend them if you see them around!

My sister bought some of these and they really work! (10/20/2006)
Other than taking forever to get here they work great. Far better than anchors and screws.
Leave such a small hole and hold secure. Great idea!
I got 2 sets for the price of 1 and also got a laser leveler with the sets. (10/20/2006)
I bought them at Bed, Bath & Beyond. They were a little pricey. They do work-but a couple of the ones I used would not go all the way in the wall no matter how hard I tried. I had to bend them in a little to hang pictures. The others went in great. I guess it depends on your walls. (10/20/2007)
