Takker Takker Ltd design, manufacturer and sell the Takker, an ingenious wall hanging device for hanging pictures, mirrors and many more items in the home and garden with minimum effort. No other tools are required – no more hammers, nails or screws making it suitable for use by all ages.

The Takker simply inserts a specially designed nail Takk into the wall surface providing a strong and neat fixing (holds up to 10Kgs even on plasterboard) whilst remaining kind to walls (careful removal of the Takk leaves a barely visible 1mm hole).

Takker Ltd design, manufacturer and sell the Takker, an ingenious wall hanging device for hanging pictures, mirrors and many more items in the home and garden with minimum effort. No other tools are required – no more hammers, nails or screws making it suitable for use by all ages.

The Takker simply inserts a specially designed nail Takk into the wall surface providing a strong and neat fixing (holds up to 10Kgs even on plasterboard) whilst remaining kind to walls (careful removal of the Takk leaves a barely visible 1mm hole). Takker comes pre-loaded with 12 Takks and also available is the Takker range of branded accessories including Takk refill packs, multi-purpose hook packs and coming soon, new Takker picture hooks. All are sold through the Takker.com website with exclusive bundles for great value for money.

Takker has undergone a successful launch in the Republic of Ireland following a winning appearance in the Irish Dragon’s Den. Since then, over 80,000 Takkers have been sold along with a further 60,000 refill packs in the space of 14 months and Takker won “Best New Product” at the Ideal Home Show, London.  The product appeals to a huge cross section of the market – homes, offices, schools, clubs and letting agencies to name a few.

Having got our hands on a Takker and used it, here's what we thought of it. It is ideal for putting hooks on the back of internal doors, especially those made of a thin veneer over corrogated cardboard, so popular with builders in the 60's and 70's. If you tried to screw a hook to such a door, you either go straight though into thin air or end up with a large hole and splintered veneer.

The Takker pushes a nail complete with hanger (a Takk) into the door and you hang one of the purpose designed hooks over it. Job done.

If you have a false wall that is somewhat spongy shall we say, hammering a nail into it to add a picture can cause the wall to bounce and if you have a picture already on it, you risk that picture flying off the wall as the bounce makes driving that new nail difficult to say the least. With a Takker, simply mark where you want your picture to hang from, pull the big red button out until it clicks, then place the Takker over the mark, and press the button down until the Takk is in place.

Move along to the next mark for another picture and repeat the routine. Hang the pictures, job done.

It is ideal for any false wall made of wood and even the old lath and plaster as with no hammer, there's no bounce and the wall is undamaged, you can even leave existing pictures in place without fear of them bouncing off their pins.

Where the Takker won't work is concrete or brick walls, plastered walls where there is just a thin skim onto brick or blockwork, but this is all detailed on the card when you buy a Takker. If you normally use a masonary nail to hang a picture frame, the Takker's not for you, nor is it if you use a masonary drill, wall plug and screw to do the same.

But if you have wooden walls, plasterboard stud walls or false walls, this should do the job neatly, tidily and very easily!
