Hercules Hook Product Review

By: Danny Lipford

The Hercules Hook claims that it:

  • Is easily installed without tools.
  • Leaves a small hole in the wall.
  • Will support up to 150 pounds.

While the Hercules Hook was easy to install in drywall with only hand pressure and left only a small 1/16” diameter hole in the wall, it supported less than 50 pounds in our test before pulling out of the wall. Since most pictures weigh less than 20 pounds, the Hercules Hook would work well in many situations, but don’t rely on it for very supporting heavy objects.

    I used 4 hooks spaced around the two sides of a 1.5ft by 3ft solid wood, lighted, 6 box shadow box. It weighs about 70 lbs. It is in a plaster wall and it been up there for about 5yrs. It is unmovable. You would think its BOLTED, it’s so solidly in place.
    Yes, I agree that one wouldn’t hold it but if used in tandem they are my favorite way of mounting.
