I would be interested in knowing the answer to that question myself. We have had our unit for 16 months, can't find anything to stick to anything that looks like wood. We tried cleaning the area with alcohol real good, no luck. Short of removing the finish and we won't do that, no luck. A 16 penny nail might do the trick (joke).

Command strips don't work well if the wall is bumpy. Our wall board is that way and I have to use the largest command strips to put up light weight items.

Same here. Used the Command hooks all over and had no issues. Have even used some velcro and have not had any issues. 2014 June build. A little alcohol wipe should remove any oils. ( no not the kind you drink )

3M Command Tape

You definitely need to use alcohol to prep the area. I had issues with both Velcro and Command strips till I used alcohol on my Rpod 182G walls. I still have some issues even with 3M's outdoor red double stick tape. It's trial and error.

We found that we were not waiting long enough to let it 'set' before trying to hang something on it. Let it set a few hours and see what happens.

And clean with alcohol before sticking it on the wall.

See if you can pick up some of these.

Has worked great for us on plastic and metal- would be nice to know if it works on wood or wood-like product.
