    An interesting product.
    It would have been better if he hadn't stuck that one grouping crooked on the wall over the hole with the wiring over the bed.
    (should have used a level :icon11:)
    He said "requires NO TOOLS". Sorry, he needed a level.
    Thanks for posting though.:thumbsup: Still interesting.

    Yes have seen it, when they requested money for funding this project.

    No information, usable information, in this clip whatsoever.

    And, they spelled Video "Viedo" in the "Video":nuts:
    That's all I need to know about the "product".

    Next, they will be throwing a Russian bride in with the deal.....:party:

    That would be all good as long as they look the same in real life as they do in the marketing photos. Not to worry though since everything on the internet is true. :thumbsup:

    It looks like it belongs in a big box store. If I were a buyer at Target, I might consider it. Then I would discount it along with all the other products of its ilk.

    How is everyone doing with Wexel?

    Ready made jersey frames?

    etc.

    I cannot work out how the central piece sticks to the wall:shrug:

    If, as I suspect, it is a suction cup similar to those used to hold navigators on windscreens it will not be much use on wallpaper, porous surfaces or irregular ones like roller-painted plaster walls and even on smooth surfaces it will probably let go occasionally. There is also the small matter of how the photos are mounted. It looks like some kind of stiff plastic sleeves which may be o.k. for small pics but larger ones are going to cockle.

    Interesting idea, though and may find traction among people living in rental homes who aren't allowed to use screws or nails to hang pictures.

    Next time you're in Lowe's/Home Depot, take a look for "temporary wall hooks". The "adhesive" seems to be a sticky and pliable pancake of rubber (like those wall walkers that were popular) with a hard plastic end that peeks from behind the hook at the bottom. Press it to the wall and it sticks - slowly pull the plastic tab downward to stretch the rubber pancake to release. It works well...but is it good enough for framed art? I dunno. :shrug:

    This company has been spamming many Facebook pages and gotten themselves banned numerous times.

    They will probably be wildly successful.
