Â by JulieM Perfect for jewelry organization!
I bought these specifically for use in my closet to organize all of my hanging jewelry on a utility board. I had no trouble with the hooks breaking during installation. In fact, I thought they were very easy to place and move (there was a lot of re-arranging of course). Perfect size for jewelry, not too thick or too thin.

I purchased a bag of three elfa utility Basic Hooks. I used them (all three) to hang up a 2-step folding step-ladder. (The ladder weighs about 8 lbs.) It's been up for a day or so, and the hooks seem to have no issues.
I will say that, when you install the hook, you should hear or feel a slight "pop" when it snaps into place -- otherwise the hook is not secure.

Â by bfloppity Versatile and another way to use them!
These are really neat hooks and I found another use for them. I bought the 80-Pocket Canvas Hanging Jewelry Organizer which only has pockets and no way to hang necklaces that are chunkier or will get tangled and thought I'd try some of the Elfa hooks I bought in the same trip since they're made to hook onto something thin and it worked (click on picture)! Adding the extra hooks to the organizer really solved a problem. I thought I was going to have to keep using a cheaper hanging organizer I already had for hanging stuff but now I can get rid of that one which is good b/c the new jewelry organizer's hanger is much stronger and capable of holding the weight without bending.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Ansmith1 Hook breaks before you can use it
This series of hooks has flaws in the way they are attaching to the Elfa components. The back snaps off when you try to install them. They should be made of metal. I returned these to the store and was told to bring them back anytime I have a broken one and they will replace it, but I do not live close to the store and it is a huge hassle to have to keep going back to replace faulty parts. Instead of replacing it... BUILD A BETTER HOOK!

To place it in the metal backing that I bought from Container Store, you have to get THE PERFECT ANGLE or it breaks. Low price meant cheap quality in this case.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by romille Slim hooks
The slim hooks are easily the best of the hook options for the utility board. You can also use them on the standards of course.
The other hooks are more difficult to install/uninstall, and most are too think to be useful. These hooks are great for hanging all sorts of things from scissors to looped cables.

The hooks wont stay in the board and keep falling off. I am returning them.
