I need to mount something thats approximately 10 Lbs to a wall, but I cant screw or nail anything into the wall. So I need some sort of adhesive which can be removed approximately a year later and wont leave damage to the wall. Any ideas?

actually that isn't that bad of an idea if you combined the two. hang it from the ceiling and use normal adhesive to stick it to the wall so it won't sway and the gravity won't be fighting the adhesive.

Well you could mount it with screws/nail into the wall and then when you are done, patch the holes up with that drywall stuff(cant think of stuff's name right now)

What kind of wall and where is it?

If it's in an apartment, they usually don't mind screw/nail holes as long as you patch them with spackling before you leave.

It a university oncampus apartment. The apartments are brand new and when they do their fire hazard inspections theyll get pissed if they find screws in the wall.

why can't nail or screw(easy people)? Ya live in an apartment? If so, they usually don't mind a few minor holes, b/c they usually paint before someone new moves in.

Use lots of double sided tape, then remove with a plastic/nylon bone tool & gently pry it apart. Finish with eraser it off then us adhesive remover.

Where I live they just charge you a small fine for putting holes in the wall, but the maintenance guy said I can fill them in myself and I won't get charged. They paint the rooms anyway after you move out.

That said, a few 3M Command Adhesive strips will hold your object just fine and not leave a mark on the wall.
