Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Quality Control I purchased 2 white magnetic boards and intended to place them side-by-side for my newly renovation home office. I was surprised to discover that the white finish on the boards are not consistent. Also, I noticed that the some sides are not straight. The metal wrap was cracked on one side. I will be returning these to the store hoping that I can exchange them for boards that are consistent in finish and are better made.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great design and functionality I purchased one of these a few weeks ago, despite what some reviewers said was a problem mounting it and the fact I was going to hand it on a cement wall in my industrial rehabbed basement. First of all, I had no problem hanging it, using Tapcons to hang it on with the provided picture hangers already mounted on the back. The key to making it flush, I think, is having the right distance between the wall and the screws or nails you use to hang it. I also like the way this thing looks. And they way it works with either pins or magnets is a big plus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great For Organization I have two of these on my wall in my home office. They come with magnets and pins. They look great and do a good job keeping things organized. I would recommend to all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classy for the office This board is very cool, stylish, well-built, really elevates the style level in the office. I like to use it exclusively with the magnets. I know the holes are there for push pins, but even though I don't use push pins, the board looks much cooler with the holes and the black background behind them than it would if it were a sheet of smooth metal. Summing up, I couldn't be happier with this board.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not happy with how product attaches to wall I bought the long narrow version of this board and am disappointed with that it doesn't hang flush or very secure. First its about 1/2" thick of metal conformed in a box-like shape, not a thin plate. The hanging hardware are two small triangle loops screwed into the back for you to hang it on two nails -- which is sort of loose at best -- but worse, the hardware is dead across the middle. This means that any pressure on the top or bottom of the strip causes it to wobble and it naturally leans away from the top of the wall just hanging there. It is impossible to hang this vertically. I suppose if one ripped out the back hardware and applied foam tape all the way around or at least on the corners it would be secure, but that could damage the wall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bulletin Board! I bought two of these bulletin boards in silver to use at my desk at home. They are definitely worth the price. Very good quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very good product We recently purchased the magnetic bulletin board for our kitchen. It matches our stainless steel appliances nicely. I like that magnets or pushpins can be used. The only disappointment was that there were no hanging instructions and no wall mount hardware included.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Parent - Teen Compromise This was the perfect compromise for my Teenager and I. He is free to express himself, without putting tacks and nails in my walls!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Efficient !! I bought this magnetic board when we moved to a place which has a MUCH smaller kitchen. This board has been just what we needed :I can either pin up or use magnets to organize paper notices. Particularly useful has been to add a small magnetic cup ( bought at the Container Store) in which I can store extra pens/pencils as well as a sharp pair of scissors that also stays put because of the magnetification.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very versatile! I love this bulletin board. To be able to use magnets or push pins is great. It's the perfect size. I put it up right next to my desk so I can put all the little notes from my desk so they don't get lost.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Display Board I bought two stainless steel boards to put on the wall in our eat in kitchen. Instead of displaying pictures and other things on our fridge we now place them in these boards. I prefer the magnetic boards to cork. It seems to hold up well and be of good quality. I used command hanging strips and they stay up well. Will probably purchase another set soon.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from umbra magnetic board This was a great purchase because it was on sale otherwise it is just a magnetic board. I was not really in the market for it but the price was right at the time and it worked out. Now I am so glad I did, it has been perfect for the office and keeps the cats from stealing tacs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great board for pins and magnets! I like having the option to use push pins or magnets when hanging things on my wall, so we purchased three of the steel version of these boards for our kitchen. We love the way they look, but wish they hung differently. The sawtooth hangers prevent the top edge from laying flat, so sometimes when I try to pin or unpin something it causes the board to move.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Purchase I purchased this Magnetic Bulletboard along with two squares, two stripes, one rectangle board and magnets to use on all the pieces. We attached these to the inside of my kitchen closet door. It's a perfect place for our monthly calendar, appointments, business cards, grocery store lists, messages, etc. Finding more uses for it every day. It is a perfect purchase because it keeps everything out of sight for a more organized looking kitchen and keeping the clutter off the countertops. Thank you Container Store. You and your staff are my favorite place to visit, whether in person or online!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Industrial and Elegant This Magnetic Board is industrial, sleek and elegant. It's cool enough for my teenager's bedroom and yet elegant enough to hang in my office. Use it for sticky note reminders, displaying small works of art, photographs or school work.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Looking Board I like the sleek, simple look to this board. Very classy. I wish it came with magnets that looked a little nicer (maybe white or silver? to keep it simple? I know everyone doesn't like color, butthe grey is ugly), I had to spend extra to get magnets that looked better, but the board works great, has strong sawtooth hangers on the back and is perfect for over my desk. All things considered, I would buy this again!

What is the depth of these boards?

Is it possible to mount these "bulletboards" with command strips since I cannot nail anything into my office walls?

Asked by: bcoray
I used command strips (one towards each corner) and they worked fine. Command strips are rated at 16 pounds. This board is just under 3.5 pounds. So even if you loaded it up, it will still be way under the weight that command strips can handle.

How do these mount to the wall? I'm wondering if it's possible to install them side by side and one directly on top of the other.

Asked by: vickib
I used command strips and you can mount them one on top of the other, side by side or any direction you desire.

Can this board be mounted vertically instead?

Asked by: MelH2103
yes, can be mounted any direction, however you will need to use an alternative mounting solution such as command strips.

Can you hang this in either direction?

Asked by: AIR123
Yes, our Magnetic Bulletboard Strip by Umbra can be mounted in either the horizontal or vertical orientation. However, to hang the strip vertically, one of the pre-attached sawtooth hangers would need to be repositioned.

Is the Magnetic Strip strong enough to hold multiple sets of keys in place?

This magnet strip will not hold multiple sets of keys, it is meant more for sticky notes or pictures.

How many magnets & pushpins come with the 21"x5" strip? It told how many come with the other 2 sizes in their description, but not this one...

Can this board be hung vertically and horizontally?

I can see in the description that it has sawtooth hangers on the back. Are there hangers that will allow for this board to be hung with the long side running either vertically or horizontally, or just with the long side going horizontally?
Asked by: LovesOrg
The Magnetic Bulletboard Strips can only be hung in a "landscape" or horizontal direction. Each one is 21" wide x 5" high.
