These hooks look very festive and attractive, but if they are not positioned just right, your hook and stocking will go tumbling. They are not heavy enough to hold a stocking, even lightly loaded, without careful positioning. They are not heavy like the ones you may have seen in stores over recent years.
The set of 4 holders came in and they were very pretty, I thought they were going to make a fine compliment to our mantle. We started to put up the hooks and fill the stalkings with goodies and coal however, the hooks could not bear the weight. We were very dissapointed. In with all the garbage were the boxes they were sent in so I'm sure they cannot be sent back now, can they?
