15% Discount on New Picture Hanging Tool

Takker, first launched in Ireland in 2009 following a successful appearance on Irish Dragon’s Den and has proven itself to be a much used tool around the house.

Takker is an ingeniously simple DIY device that makes hanging items around the home, garden and work place quick, easy and safe. No need for hammers, nails, drills or any other tools, Takker comes pre-loaded with super-strong Takks which it dispenses into your chosen surface and is immediately ready to hold weights up to 10kgs/22lbs.

Takker is also kind to walls making it ideal for seasonal decorations. Careful removal of a Takk using the built-in catch will leave behind a barely visible 1mm hole.

Takker’s simple design is a result of six years of intensive product engineering and testing by Chief Developer and product design engineer Damien McGrane. The product makes use of basic principles of physics to make it hold even in surfaces such as plasterboard.

November saw the release of the first in a range of accessories currently in development. Takker Hooks are now available in two sizes and fit securely but easily over the Takk. The hooks give a handy way of hanging heavy tools in the garage or shed, coats and dressing gowns in the bedroom and oven gloves or aprons in the kitchen.
