Anyone know how to get these suckers off the door? My mom has a round magnetic wreath hook on her front door and is unable to remove that thing for nothing? We've tried pulling at it, sliding it..nothing. Is there a magical way to remove them that we are missing? Each year she tries to get it off and slowly it is inching down the door, looks terrible. Anyone?
Hubby (aka the Tool Man) said to try sticking a butter knife or a flat head screwdriver behind it and using it as a lever to pry it off.
Good luck, that would annoy me to death!
Well, awhile back we tried the knife idea but couldn't even get it behind it enough to try and wedge it off. I swear its the weirdest thing. I even asked the lady at the hardware store yesterday and she said it should just pop off. i dunno what kind of magnet is in it but man that thing is strong. Thanks for the tip.
It is driving mom crazy. She wants to put it back in the proper position but there is no way it will budge.
I had the opposite problem with the magnetic wreath holder that I bought. I placed it on my front door and then hung the wreath. 5 minutes later the thing fell off Tried it again.............fell off again. I couldn't get it to hold the weight of the wreath (plain old balsam Christmas wreath).
Finally gave up and hammered a nail in the door
How about spraying some WD 40 around the hanger maybe it will let ya slide it off if it's slippery.
Maybe a bigger, stronger magnet would pull it off?
Heat will make a magnet lose it attraction. Maybe a hairdryer? A propane torch or lighter should work, but you might burn down the house.
