The light adhesive can be used on each corner of a poster, cards, or children's artwork and stuck to the wall, refrigerator, or door!
Secure Drawer Trays
Apply to the underside of any trays you use in a drawer that don't quite fill up the space to keep it from sliding about the drawer!
Use a dab of putty on the bottom corners of a hanging picture frame to keep the picture hanging straight or to raise it off the wall.

First off, Museum Putty and Quakehold Putty are the same thing. It say so in the leaflet that come with it. They have two different names just to market to different users.
They also make Quakehold Gel, and Museum Wax.
Gel requires a sealed surface, and says not to use on wood. It is clear, and if you need to anchor a clear vase to a glass shelf, this is your product. I found it is also the most difficult to work with, so take that into account. It has a very slow motion ooze to it (like very, very thick honey), and I simply could not get it to stick to a crystal vase (to apply it directly to the vase) - I had to apply it to the shelf, and put the vase on it. Once I gave it time to "set" (and cleaned up the extra that oozed out), it did hold the vase well, and is virtually invisible.
Wax is what you want for anchoring something to a wooden surface. It's a soft white color (translucent in a thin layer) that isn't obtrusive under most items. It's not hard like candle wax, it's soft, and feels like it's been liquified and whipped (incorporating air), then allowed to cool. I have no idea how they make it, I'm just talking about what it feels like. It's relatively easy to work with for the first few items, but if you are doing a lot, it gets somewhat annoying. Traces of wax stick to your fingers, and clings to the wax you are trying to attach to your item. Wipe(scrub) your fingers on paper towels in between, but eventually you'll need to wash your hands in water as hot as you can stand. It does come off.
Putty is the easiest to work with. To me, it's something between cream and ivory colored, also unobtrusive under most items. Also needs a sealed surface. Though they say you can use it on finished wood, they also caution that it may lift the finish. Why risk it? Use the Museum Wax - people have been waxing wood for many centuries... I have used it on painted wood however, and it hasn't seemed to do any harm to that.
I bought all of these about three months ago, and used them on the appropriate surfaces. I could live without the Gel (just don't need in in my circumstances) - I only found one place for it, but it's held well. On the other hand, the Wax and the Putty are two things I wish I'd found years ago!
I have a litter of teenage cats that practically bounce off the walls when they are playing and chasing each other. Since I've used these stuff on nearly everything breakable within their reach, they have not managed to knock over a single thing! Vase/candleholder/picture frames/knicknacks/etc on tables, glass bottles on window sill, glass and ceramic food storage containers on the kitchen counters, the external hard drive on the desk, even the tippy charging stand for the headphones... (Once you start, you keep finding new uses.)
One suggestion that is a bit different from the instructions, particularly with stuff that has a rimmed edge - rather than making small balls of the stuff, make small worms. You still space it out around the item (not the whole bottom nor whole perimeter), but it makes it easier to control, and less chance of some oozing out.
Also, a little goes a long way. I've used perhaps a third of a jar of the Wax, and a bit more than three quarters of a packet of the Putty. I already have a spare packet of the putty though - I refuse to ever again be without a supply of both of these!
Hope this helps!
Some of the things I use this product for: holding down glass lotion dispensers on my sink ledges and steadying vases and various objet d'art that are exposed to canines and human guests. Here in Chicagoland I have only experienced earthquake rumblings a handful of times in the last 50 years, so I'm not too concerned about that.
I do get very tired of framed artwork going out of level, so I have taken to attaching a blob of Quakehold at the bottom edge of the frame and pressing it against the wall. This seems to help keep them in place. Also, I use this on the bottom of votive candle holders on the fireplace mantel so that I do not accidentally send glass shards and hot wax spraying all over the area. Again.
I'm sure that I will think of more uses for this product in the future. I like the fact that it has no odor, is not greasy, so far has not left marks on any surfaces, is easily removable, can be returned to the package and used again, and does not seem to dry out or go bad in the package over a period of several months. A little goes a long way.
I wonder if I can flatten it out and press it against the color Sunday comics like Silly Putty. That would be too cool!
LOVE this product!
I'm on my 3rd order--I use this product to hold the sea shells on a bathroom shelf unit, so they don't get bumped off.
I have them holding the cute birdies on my guest room's headboard (in the Birdie Room).
Have 'em holding the birds steady on the birdie floor lamp!
Simply put, this stuff is a minor miracle. I find it takes a day or two for the putty to really set up and become indestructible, but once it's had that time to harden, it's amazing. A single pack will go a long way.
In addition to gripping really well, it also comes off well if you're in possession of opposable thumbs. ;) Giving the lamp/nicknack/whatever a good twist breaks the bond and the tack easily comes off both sides of things. I've easily removed it from laminate kitchen counters, cheap laminate furniture, high quality solid hardwood furniture, walls, glass, stainless steel, and more in the last year+.
I can't recommend this stuff more if you have pets or young kids.
