Make A Self Sticking Hook Stick
Ever hang one of those hooks with the adhesive on the back?
I think we all have…Anyway.. often times they just don’t stick! Right?
Part of the reason may be that the mounting surface is too rough, or the adhesive has dried out some.
So here’s what you do… Drill a small hole on an angle through the hook and put a small finish nail, or the like, thru the hole into your mounting surface.
You must drill the hole in on an angle!! – Here’s why..
The pressure placed on the hook, from whatever is hanging on it, is in basically 2 directions, – out and down.
When the outward pressure is applied, the nail will have to travel “upward” in order to come out of the hole. This is very tough for a nail to do when most all the other pressure is “downward”. (This is why picture hooks have an angle built into them.)
