Hooks for hanging

Command hooks (medium size) are only rated for 3 pounds and wouldn't fit where I wanted anyway. Didn't want to drill holes in my fiberglass doorway or bathroom wall. Made hooks out of 3/16th ABS plastic with a 1 1/4 inch diameter hook end, 2 inches of wall contact for 3M RP-45 tape (good for 20 pounds after a 72 hour cure) so our wet jackets can hang in an unused space.

Weight tested at 10 pounds after a 4 hour cure.

Of course wifey now wants them in the bathroom.....think I'll add them to the website.

Don't drill holes, try custom storage you design: http://RVWidgetWorks.com

Those look great. Well done!

If you ever want to avoid leaving a residue on the walls from 3M tape a product called Jimmy Hooks is an awesome alternative. I know the prices look high but there are a number of hooks in a package and the weights stated are very under stated. They work great I use them at home as well..... totally gave up on the suction cup type hooks.
