I have a thing for long necklaces. I love them. They are my accessory of choice with just about everything. But storing my necklaces has been a bit of a mess. They are too long for my jewelry box, so they ended up in a box like so.
And as you can imagine, every time I needed one I had to take them all out and untangle them. I’ve seen tons of beautiful DIY necklace displays on Pinterest, and maybe someday I will get around to making one, but in the mean time mine were in a heap.
Then I received samples of Gecko Tech Reusable Hooks to try. As soon as they arrived I knew what I would do with them. I would turn the inside of my armoire into a hanging display for my necklaces. It was so easy, within minutes my necklaces were hanging on the inside of the door, out of sight and tangle free.
What I like most about Geko Tech Reusable Hooks is that there is no adhesive involved – none. The hooks stick with micro suction, which means there is nothing to damage the surface they cling to. (I’ve had “damage-free” adhesive ruin my wall before. Not fun.) Since there is no adhesive, I feel confident in placing them inside my wood armoire without worry that some day they will strip the finish.
To create my new display, I followed the directions on the package
- Clean surface with rubbing alcohol and allow to dry.
- Stick to surface and press to push out air bubbles.
- Hang my jewelry.
Because I am always looking for ways to reduce my family’s carbon footprint, I also like that the hooks can be reused – over and over again. They are made with a revolutionary microsuction synthetic rubber that can be washed with soapy water if it becomes less sticky (from dust, etc). So if I ever do make a fancy display, I can use the hooks for something else!
Note – Gecko Tech Reusable Hooks cannot be used on wallpapered, textured, peeling, uneven, coarse or fragile surfaces.
Gecko Tech Reusable Hooks are available in three sizes that can hold up to a half pound, three pounds or five pounds. For my jewelry display, I used the smallest size, which comes in a four pack. You can buy Gecko Tech hooks at Meijer, and they will soon be available on Amazon and at Office Max.
