|Drill-free wall hooks with Duzzit|

If you have some pictures to hang and you don’t want your walls – or your landlord’s – to become a ‘holey’ mess, there is an alternative that will get you hooked up holes-free.
With all these long weekends and mid-week public holidays ahead of us here in South Africa, you may feel the urge to do some home improvement. Perhaps hang all those pictures that you’ve been threatening to do for some time? Or add those additional hooks to the wardrobe or bathroom wall?
The Duzzit Handy Hanger is a ‘revolutionary’ new patented hanging system that promises to enable users to hang almost anything to any type of wall surface without anyone having to drill holes for nails or screws. It can also be removed without leaving any damage to the wall.
The kit includes a Duzzit heat gun, ten mounting discs, five utility hooks and five wardrobe hooks. The gun creates a strong molecular bond in order to attach the hooks without the need for drilling or hammering nails into a wall. To hang, users simply attach the mounting disc to the heated gun, press it to a clean dry surface and hold it in place for about 30 seconds. As the glue cools, it creates the thermal bond that will hold the hook firmly in place.
Sounds fair enough, but Duzzit work?
We have tried it and can attest that it works on painted, plastered walls, but will not recommend using it to hang anything heavy-duty, such as a huge painting with a heavy frame. The manufacturer suggests that it can safely hold up to 4.5 kilograms (depending on the type of wall surface it is being used on), but we will personally stick to lighter weight items such as smaller picture frames.
In order to remove the hook, you simply attach the enclosed wire disc remover, heat the Duzzit applicator again and remove the disc without leaving behind any damage to the wall, tiles or wood panelling. No one will ever know that you’ve had something mounted to the wall in that place, making it perfect for students who live in dorms or others who are in rented accommodation and would like to add a personal, decorative touch to the walls.
The Duzzit is available from Glomail for R199. A refill box is available for R49.95.
