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 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 
  • it's 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
  • Cure time: 24 - 36 hours

Step 1

Ball of Sugru being applied to wall

Roll 5g of Sugru into a ball and press onto the wall.

We have made a light yellow by colour mixing, learn how to make custom colours here!

Step 2

Sugru moulded with hands

Push the Sugru firmly into the wall to create a strong bond, and then work the Sugru with your fingers into a point.

Step 3

Sugru hook moulded into pyramid shape

Your Sugru point should look something like this.

Step 4

Sugru moulded to point upwards

Gently curve the tip of the point upwards to create your hook.

Step 5

Sugru fashioned as a hook on a wall

Once you are happy with the shape of your hook, leave it to cure for 24 hours.

Step 6

Colander being hung on wall with Sugru hooks

After 24 hours, your hook is ready for action!

You might also notice that I fixed my old enamelled colander - the base had started to rust and was about to fall off. Sugru holds the parts together and it's waterproof, making it perfect for the job!
