No more holes in your walls: Heavy-duty Command Strips are on sale for less than $1 each

There's no better way to refresh a room than putting up framed photos or lively art. But hanging art is a huge pain in the neck, right? Wrong: You can do it without lifting a hammer if you use 3M's Command Picture Hanging Strips. These damage-free sticky strips securely hang art with no drilling, no banging and no damage to walls. Command Large Picture Hanging Strips can hold up to 16 pounds, and they're nearly 50% off at Amazon.

Put the hammer and nails away — you won't need 'em with these nifty strips.

Why is this a good deal?

Command Strips are a household name and, shoppers say, a "household secret weapon." With this sale, four pairs of these strips cost just over $3, down from $6. At less than $1 each, that's a great deal — especially when you consider the frustration you may save by not pounding nails into the wall.

Why do I need this?

Each strip has two parts. One attaches to your framed item, the other to the wall. Then they snap securely together. Want to rearrange things? They'll peel right off. And they can hold an impressive amount of weight — up to 16 pounds, equivalent to 2 gallons of milk! (Now that would be an artsy installation.)

The strips are designed to cause zero damage to your wall, but for best results, be mindful of the instructions. Attach Command picture strips to clean, smooth surfaces, and avoid high humidity and fresh paint.

Command Picture Hanging Strips aren't just for picture frames, either. Use them for canvases, posters, small shelves, knickknacks and more — a world of possibility awaits.

What reviewers say

These top-rated strips have earned more than 4,700 five-star ratings, and shoppers can't seem to get enough — more than 500 of them have been purchased on Amazon in the last month alone.

One delighted shopper explained: "These heavy-duty strips were used for hanging heavy mirrors (10 pounds each) in my living room. ... The process was very easy. ... My project was done in minutes, which would have taken me a couple of hours to set up otherwise. Super happy."

"Reliable and affordable," added another five-star reviewer. "I used these to put a 24-by-36-inch dry erase board/cork board on the wall and not have to anchor and screw it to the wall. It took less than a minute to push them together, peel one side, stick it to the back of the board, peel the other side and stick it to the wall — using masking tape as a guide to ensure that it would be level."

This impressed shopper shared a money-saving tip: "I ordered these to finish up a gallery wall I have been working on. ... I cut them in half and one was able to hang two 5x7 frames! Every photo in my home is hung with Command Strips, and if removed properly, they won't ruin the wall. ... They really are so easy to use and make gallery walls a breeze! ... All were hung with Command Strips, even the mirror!"

"You first need to prep the wall or surface," a final shopper cautioned. "Without proper cleaning or curing time, the adhesive doesn’t have time to bond to the surface and it's bound to fail. For those that haven't found success with yours, kindly follow the instructions."

When you're ready to switch things up, they'll remove with ease and leave no sticky residue — again, as long as you follow instructions, according to reviewers.

These strips can support up to 16 pounds, so you can use them for even heavy decorative canvases.
