Platinum elfa utility Hooks
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.

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.

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