We get often asked, how to hang up the LEGO baseplate on a wall or wallpaper without damaging both the mosaic and the wall.

We made good experiences with tesa Powerstrips® (Productvideo). They can be removed at any time, quickly and easily. Without tearing the wallpaper or leaving a hole in the wall. And above all, without your having to use any tools, screws, or nails. Just use one for each corner.

Velcro® hook-and-loop fastener

An other great solution is to use hook-and-loop fastener like Velcro® strips if you want to be flexible and want to use the wall for other things like a video projection.

VELCRO® brand Easy Coin is the new and innovative mated coin of the Velcro companies. It is an extremely thin closure with an attractive oval design which allows you to differentiate your product and also permits rapid application & perfect alignment.
