[It has been nearly a year and the magnetic bar hasn't moved a bit, even with daily use and the addition of heavy butcher knives. See photos for wear - pretty impressive given the amount of off/on every day. I tried everything under the sun to clean it, but actually made the scuffing worse, so if you have ideas please message me! Thanks for reading!] **Independent, verified, non-compensated review.**
I thought I'd review this for those who don't want to install directly into your wall. As I was looking for a magnetic bar for my knives I really didn't think that 3M Velcro strips would hold it up very well but they do! Only had to use two of the heavy duty ones and it's remarkable how stable it is - even against the smooth glass on my backsplash. I've had several different sizes of cutlery, scissors, tweezers, a huge butcher's knife, and even car keys on this thing and it hasn't wiggles. I ended up buying three more for use in bathrooms and the garage. I love them!
It is exactly the dimensions listed in the description, and as some reviews noted, the magnet is incredibly strong! I get compliments from everyone who sees it, so I'd highly recommend this product for your home.
