References from the canon

  • Both the portrait of Sirius' mother and the tapestry showing the Black family tree were fastened to the wall with Permanent Sticking Charms. As a result, the members of the Order couldn't remove them from the walls (OP6).
  • The enchanted portrait in the Prime Minister's office could not be removed from the wall by Muggle means, so it may have a Permanent Sticking Charm on the back (HBP1).
  • Used by Sirius Black to put up Muggle posters, Gryffindor banners, and so on in his room at number twelve, Grimmauld Place before he left home (DH10).
