3M touts new Command Hooks, shower caddies

3M Command Hook product line

3M gave viewers a sneak peek of its latest Command Hook innovations at the Orgill Market in Boston. New outdoor, UV-stable and bathroom hooks, launching Oct. 15, were present at the 3M booth.

The Command Damage-Free Hanging Light Clips are outdoor strips that hold in temperatures of up to -20 degrees. Meanwhile, Command Damage-Free Window Hooks are UV-stable, meaning they won't fall off in hot weather. Previous Command products, first launched about 10 years ago and now expanded to 60-70 SKUs, failed to address temperature issues as directly as these soon-to-launch items, according to sales representative Chas Nelson. 

A new collection of bathroom Command products is also on queue, ranging from water-resistant shower caddies, razor hooks and soap dishes to regular towel hooks. 

Other prominent features at 3M's Orgill booth included the 3M-sponsored Greg Biffle Nascar car -- now retired -- which raced two years ago. The official pit crew was in attendance Thursday at the Orgill Market.
