Power Lock Hooks
doesn't hold up
I wanted a hook to hold a shower cap---maybe one ounce in weight. This did not stay up, even on tile, even after wetting the surface before applying. Very disappointing.

I did not want to drill into the beautiful white subway tile in my newly-remodeled bathroom! These hooks are exactly what I needed to hold back the shower curtains on either end of my gorgeous slipper clawfoot tub. I tied gray ribbon around each hook, which I then tie to the curtains when I draw them back. The result is lovely, with the hooks completely invisible and the walls undamaged!

They are pretty good so far. I purchased two of them to hang shower poufs and they are still stuck to the wall. I don't think they can handle anything too heavy though. When I first put them on the wall, one of them fell to the bath tub floor with nothing hanging on it. When I stuck it back on the wall, I used a little more force and it has not fallen off since. I have tiled bathroom walls-not the shiny subway tiles kind-mine are kind of a dry/matte tile (not really sure how it explain it) which is prob why the suction is not that strong. I am pretty sure that if you used these on a mirror, glass, or shiny kind of tile the suction would be amazing.

Useful, but suction could be stronger
We've been using these hooks in our bathroom for years. They hold up pretty well overall, but after two or three months of holding anything that weighs more than a plain scrubbing pouf (the kind without a handle), they lose their grip and fall off.
Fortunately, they usually go right back up (they stick better if you wet the suction cup first), but the only way we've found to keep this from happening is to move them around about once a month, before they've reached the point when they'll fall. And they don't last foreverâ¿¿we typically have to replace them every few years because the suction cups are worn out.
Don't get me wrong, thoughâ¿¿I really like these hooks. Despite my complaint about their suction, they still hold better than any other suction-cup hooks we've tried (and we've tried several). The heaviest thing we hang on them is a long-handled scrubby pouf that weighs less than a pound, and these are the only suction-cup hooks we've found that can hold that and stay on the wall for more than a week. I just wish they were even stronger so that we didn't have to worry about it.
