Pin Hooks are push pins with a strong plastic hook that quickly and easily insert into walls, doors, wood, bulletin boards and more and securely hold up to 2 pounds in drywall and 4 pounds in solid wood! Pin hooks do the job of organizing, decorating, or crafting, but only leave a small pin-sized hole.
Try to coat the part of the thumbtack/nail that will be in the wall with glue. A small amount of glue will fill cracks and help the pin/nail shank hold better by bonding to the plaster in the plasterboard.
As previously mentioned, avoid using nails on plaster walls as they are likely to crack the drywall. Use a screw instead as they will not break through the plasterboard.
Today’s pins are useful for pinning studies, inspiration or notes to a bulletin board or wall. But they can also be great assistants for special projects. You can use them to stretch canvases, lift canvases for drip paintings, or use them as mini handles to hold when tilting a wet canvas.
Push pin holds up to 1 lb.
To sum up, you can usually drill holes in apartment walls. However, if you do this, it is usually your responsibility as the renter to restore the walls to their original condition. If you don’t do this, your landlord will likely charge you for the cost of the repair or deduct it from your deposit.
This is considered reasonable wear and tear. With today’s technology, tacks in the walls are unnecessary for most tenant needs. The detachable but sturdy Command(TM) hooks allow items to be hung on the walls and when removed, the hook is removed without damaging the walls.
Tacks can securely hold up to 2 pounds in drywall and 4 pounds in solid wood!
Both plaster and drywall can support about the same weight. A screw that drives into both plaster and drywall can hold 80-100 pounds (36-45 kilos). Anchored screws or other fasteners driven into the wall where there is no bolt can support up to 20 pounds (9 kilos).

Tack and Thumbtack: What’s the Difference? Pushpin is a thumbtack, while thumbtack is a small nail-like thumbtack with a slightly rounded head that can be pressed into place with light pressure of…
They work very well. The pins sometimes come out when you put them in hard pads. I sometimes use them in wood paneling or softwood planks and sometimes the pin comes out and stays in the wall. This doesn’t seem to happen with plastic pins.
A nail in drywall can hold at most a few pounds and should not exceed 10 pounds. The load-bearing capacity can be significantly increased by using drywall anchors or nailing them into a stand.
How much weight can drywall hold with a wall anchor? How much weight can drywall hold without a stand? Typically about 20 pounds. For heavy items, you may need to fold them up or hang them on a stud.
As versatile and durable as it is, drywall is relatively brittle and cannot hold the weight of nails like a wood, plaster, or brick wall can. A nail in drywall alone can only hold a few pounds at most, and even then it won’t hold reliably.
