Hanging photos in cabin

Hey Guys,

Anyone have a rec as to what to use to hang framed pics in the cabin? I tried using the 3M command stuff, which worked great in our old boat, but they keep falling down. Maybe the heat or possibly some sort of oil/treatment on the cabin walls.

Walls are cherry, either a very flat varnish or oiled, it is tough to tell. I don't want to put any nail or screw holes in them.

Thanks.
Doug

Hi Doug,

I've had good luck with the heavy duty velcro tape found at most home improvement stores. A long piece across the top and one across the bottom seem to hold a lot of weight. Even my 24" Navigation Monitor in rough seas.

YMMV,

I've had great success with the heavy duty Velcro as well. I only have framed things, a decorative plate and a cutting board hung up with it, no electronics. .

Is that HD Velcro the clear stuff? I've used it for other stuff, I'll give it a try.

Thanks!

Ill vote for that heavy duty dual lock velcro shown by Pau Hauna. It clicks in place and even stuck on my oiled bulkheads.
