How to make a hook anywhere you need it

Sugru hook on a tiled wall

Organising and hanging stuff on surfaces like tiles, furniture and at your desk is a real pain. You don't want to drill into these kind of surfaces. This simple guide will show you how to create hooks anywhere you want them - on kitchen tiles, in the shower, at your desk.

Sugru Mouldable Glue is a perfect solution for this because:

  • You can mould the hooks perfectly for the thing you want to hang
  • It bonds to almost any surface 
  • Sugru is removable from non-porous surfaces if you need to remove it later (great if you're renting!)

What you need to make a hook

  • One single-use pack of Sugru
  • Time to do this fix: 5 minutes

Step 1

Roll the Sugru into a ball and press onto the wall.

Step 2

Push the Sugru firmly into the wall to create a strong bond, and then mould the Sugru into the shape of a cone.

Step 3

Your Sugru cone should look something like this.

Step 4

Gently curve the tip of the cone upwards to create your hook.

Step 5

Once you are happy with the shape of your hook, leave it to set for 12-24 hours.

Depending on the thickness of the application, for load-bearing projects, allow up to 48 hours for Sugru to fully set.
