No drilling, no mess, renter-friendly … hang it up without making a single hole.
I wanted to add a spice rack to my kitchen, but the backsplash is all made of solid glass in which is impossible to drill holes.
When I saw the BEKVÄM spice rack from IKEA, I had an idea of sticking the shelf to the glass with some 3M Command adhesive stripes.
However it didn’t go as smoothly as I envisioned.
After several tries with different type of glue-on stripes, a fallen rack and a broken spice jar, I finally found out that the 3M Command sawtooth picture hangers fit perfectly in the BEKVÄM screw slots!
Each 3M Command adhesive stripe with the hook can hold up to 4 pounds (1.8 kg). They adhere well to a variety of surface including painted walls, and can be removed without any damage by stretching them to release the adhesive. They are a wonderful and strong product and a perfect solution to avoid drilling holes in the walls!
How to hang it without drilling
1. Using a screwdriver, flip the slots on the back of the spice rack so that the big hole is on top.

2. Insert the 3M hooks in the slots and apply the supplied adhesive stripe. Apply pressure for 30 seconds.
3. Peel back the adhesive and stick the spice rack to the wall while making sure it’s level. Apply pressure for 30 seconds.
4. Remove the spice rack from the hooks and wait for an hour before hanging the spice rack.
And that’s how you hang up a BEKVÄM spice rack without drilling. Hope you found this tip useful.
