Looks like something you can find in a Dollar General store.

I was thinking in a garden shop, by the looks of the tools. The answer might lie in the pics, where are they from?

Try searching for Crawford Tool Organizer. Not 100% exact, but pretty darn close. Can be found at Walmart, Amazon, Ace Hardware, etc…

Cheers,

I got a half dozen of those at the local Menard’s when we first moved into the acreage and I needed something fast, cheap, and temporary for the shop building. This was before I put up insulation and real walls.

They were only a couple dollars each. I still have them; have since moved them into the machine shed where they hold garden tools.

Edit to add: I looked at the link provided in Brad’s post. The price shown was $50-ish; I couldn’t tell how many of the hangars were included. I can’t imagine paying that kind of money for only two of the hangers. They’re really nothing more than stamped galvanized sheet metal.

They are strongest when you use a fastener in each set of the pre-punched holes. Otherwise, the weight of the items can make them distort and lean.

There is a downside to these things: You can cut yourself on them very easily. Don’t ask me how I know.

Thanks RClarK – this exactly what I was looking for. Your right they are sharp and they do have limitations but for the price and light weight tool storage you can’t beat them.

No prob…

I have an 8lb maul, an axe, couple of pick axes, some shovels, etc., hanging on them right now. Been up for over a year and no issues with that much weight on them.

for the lighter tools, you could put 1/2 – 3/4” dowels in a board and make your own.
for the heavier items, use a piece of iron (or copper) water pipe instead of a wood dowel.

My default hangers used to be Shaker pegs, mounted into a 3/4” thick by 4” rail. Drill them each a hole, and glue the pegs in, mount the rails securely to the studs at each stud, and you could hang hundreds of pounds on them.

Almost everything could be attached using loops of boot leather (laces).

Then they got trendy, and sheesh what used to cost a penny apiece, went expensive. Both the pegs, and the laces.
