White elfa utility Board Hooks
Elfa Utility Board
I have an Elfa Utility Board in my home back in the states but we also have a winter home in Mexico. At that house, we do not have a basement or a garage. This is a problem, but with Elfa it is solved. Last year, although my husband griped and growled for 3500 miles, I hauled an Elfa System in our walk-in-closet. We installed it ourselves and now the closet not only keeps our clothes, but also our dive gear, medical supples, and all kinds of things in clear storage boxes up on top. This year, we put shelving and a utility board in our battery room to keep his fishing gear and tools organized. This is how well he likes it now, as we were installing the utility board, he informed me he wants to install shelving in the battery room to keep light bulbs, extra supllies, car and boat parts, etc in over the washer and dryer. I had already thought of it but if he thinks it is his idea - GREAT!!!!

WASTE OF MONEY
First off, these hooks fit as poorly into the pegboard shelf as the grammar in the description of this product. They DON'T hook into place and constantly pop off and fall out every time you lift something off of them.
Secondly, the hooks are awkwardly shaped and are two fat to hold most items. They hold my measuring cups and that's about it. I'd love to buy more hooks for this product, but this is exclusively sold by the container store and hooks like this don't exist for long slotted peg boards.
Waste of money. How am I supposed to hang anything on my pegboard? I would not recommend these cheap, flimsy, non-usable hooks to anyone.

Elfa Utility Boards-Need Broader Selection of Hook
Just installed three 3'x15" Elfa utility boards. Started to hang tools and found utility hooks were too thick or rounded to accommodate a lot of my tools. Need straight hook (not an "L" shape), 1/8" to 4.0mm in diameter, slightly elevated to slide tools with small holes straight on...like peg-board hooks. Also, the Board Hook Circle is too big for some screw drivers and other straight tools. Need Board Hook Circle one-half the diameter. Overall, I really like the Elfa Board System, but they need to expand the types and styles of hooks. I have passed this information on to The Container Store technical staff.

I love the new Elfa "peg board" - great way to maximize unused wall space. These hooks make it easy to keep different items accessible & visible -- kitchen gadgets; tools; jewelry; make-up and beauty products; crafts supplies; the list is endless!
