17 “As Seen on TV” Products That Are Actually Awesome

We watch infomercials like some people watch Game of Thrones. The greyed out footage of inept people who can’t do simple things at the beginning, the loud and overly cheerful hosts, the pretend excitement from the studio audience; we just can’t get enough! Not every product lives up to its commercial’s glory, but surprisingly, some do.

Here are some “As Seen on TV” products that are actually worth the money.

Hercules Hook

This thin wire hook doesn’t look like much, but it really does work as advertised. Perfect for city apartment dwellers, The Hercules Hook eliminates the need for drills or hammers; you just push it into the wall and hang whatever you like on it. Not only can the Hercules Hook hold up to 150 lbs of weight, when you take it out it, all it leaves behind is a tiny hole in the wall, so both renters and landlords are left happy.
