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

Make sure the are no gaps or shadows, so that the edges of the Sugru are flush with the surface you are sticking to.

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.

Sugru sets in 12-24 hours, however for load-bearing projects, and applications where your Sugru is quite thick, or squished between two surfaces, we advise that you leave it to set for up to 48 hours. Always test your Sugru application out before using it.
