    Hung them up

    Got tired of my detectors slipping down and crashing on the floor. I went on Amazon and bought some hooks: FOTYRIG Adhesive Wall Hooks Wall Hangers Without Nails 15 pounds and hung my 2 detectors on my office wall. the hooks are small but hold well and you don't need nails or a stud to hang them.

    and the adhesive WILL fail, guaranteed
    how strong - over time - is the paint to which the hooks are stuck ?

    might work on tile where the substrate will not fail
    for an adhesive joint look for the greatest surface area

    Billieg, BillA is right. Can your detectors survive the drop? I tried these products a few years ago, for picture frames and such. Just a few weeks later, the frames began falling off the walls. I strongly suggest you find a more secure hanger. They don't all fail, some will.

    "And so the population was gradually led into the demoralising temptations of arcades, baths, and sumptuous banquets. The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as 'civilisation', when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement." Tacitus, Roman Senator and Historian, written AD 98.

    yes they will fail, had a picture hit the floor at 2 am , very unnerving as it sounded like someone kicked the door down.

    There is a product called a Zip-it drywall anchor. They look like a mollie wall anchor but they have a spiral around them that grips the drywall. A Zip-it will hold 50-75 lbs. in 1/2" drywall. Just punch a hole into the drywall with an awl, stick the Zip-it in your drill motor with Philips bit and screw the Zip-it into the drywall. No messing around with toggles and oversized holes.
