How could i possibly brace a 3M Command hook to a wall while the glue cures?
I'm not using the sticky tape and glue that came with the 3M Command hook. I'm using Loctite Premium cause I'm trying to increase the hook's weight capacity, but they say I need to somehow brace it while it cures for 48 hours. How?

Tape the hook to the wall with masking tape while the glue dries. .

lean a 2x4 , 4x4, 4x6 , whatever, against it.

I usually back a refrigerator up against it to hold it in place. I hope that helps.

You might try painter's tape. Masking tape might remove the paint from the wall.

Depends on the relationship of the hook's location to other structural elements. If you draw us a picture, then we might be able to offer a suggestion.
However, you might be better off using a hook designed for the load you are trying to prepare for.
Using a plastic hook for a heavy load may end up just breaking the hook, even if the adhesive holds.
