Hardwall Hangers. If you want to hang items on a brick or a concrete wall, hardwall hangers are your best option. Even command strips don’t hold up well when it comes to textured brick walls. Luckily, a high-quality hardwall hanger can hold up quite heavy items without causing a lot of damage to your walls.
