The Best Picture Hooks for Drywall

Available on Amazon
These hooks for hanging pictures are so amazing I'd be willing to do an Infomercial about them!

I first noticed the hooks advertised on TV a few years back, and remember thinking I really should give these a try. Well, I finally did...and yep, they're amazing. 

They're called 'The Monkey Hook', in fact the package says 'The Amazing Monkey Hook', with each hook holding up to 50lbs. Actually, they have hooks for various weights, so be sure to check the package to ensure it's the weight you wanted.

You don't need any tools whatsoever to put up a picture..not one tool. There's no mess, no major damage to the walls, no hammers, no plugs for the wall, and no nails for screws. Best of all, there's no need to try and find wall-studs. Use these directly on the drywall, where there isn't a stud, even for those heavier pictures.

For women, or at least for me, I found these hooks to be a HUGE time saver. I no longer ask my husband to put pictures on the wall.

How They Work:

They're shaped in a curve.

With the end of the curved hook, simply work a little hole into the wall then turn it upwards inside the wall where the hook then grips onto the drywall, leaving you with a nice little, but strong hook to hang your pictures on.

The absolute best part is they barely leave a mark on the wall. All you see when the photo is taken down is a tiny pinprick where the hook initially was.

If you've never tried The Monkey Hook, don't hesitate because it works exactly as it claims it does. I highly recommend these hooks. They're all I use now.

I'll add that I trust the hooks more than I do hooks that just stick to the wall, especially for heavy items.

  1. My daughter and I have both used these Monkey Hooks! We first discovered them when she moved into an apartment and we needed something the two of us could use without hammers and nails.

  2. They're great aren't they, I keep a few extra on hand here in the house all the time

  3. I do love personal testimonials! I've never tried Monkey Hooks, but I can assure you that after reading this review, next time I have a picture to hang I'll be picking up a package of these!

    1. Susan, they're awesome, you won't be disappointed

  4. I've lived in rental homes and apartments for many years and always worried about leaving nail holes in the walls. These monkey hooks look to be exactly what I need. Thanks for the review, Barbara.

  5. Great review. I didn't know about these. I assume I'd need more than one for very heavy or large pictures or mirrors.
