elfa utility Lawn Equipment Hook
I gave it two stars rather than one bc normally elfa is such a good product.
I own a boutique landscape design, installation and maintenance company. I store lots of things in a shed and I use elfa for some of the equipment. I have 5 leaf blowers ranging in size and none fits in this hook. My employees and I have tried every angle and iteration and no luck. It is disappointing.
I think that TCS needs to do a focus group with serious home landscapers to figure out what works and doesn't in the elfa garage line. I believe that elfa is designed in Scandinavia where they use the metric system. Perhaps European tools work in this hook. Not sure.
I am a huge elfa fan and user. I have 3 elfa closets and a drawer unit in my home. I was hoping the garage stuff would work for my shed bc it works so well at home, but alas, it does not.

Consider the Weight Limit
The Lawn Equipment Hook is well made and well designed, however, the 50 pound weight limit applies only if mounted directly in a stud. If the hook is attached to the Elfa rail, the weight limit is GREATLY reduced. The limiting factor is the rail attachment mechanism -- the locking tab will snap off if too much weight is applied. If you plan to hang an electric string trimmer and a short cord, you can use the track. If you have a heavy duty cord or heavy duty string trimmer, you should plan on mounting the hook in a stud.

I bought this Elfa utility lawn equipment hook to hand a blower what I realized is that , the hook below served as cable hanger..which became very helpful. Obiously is not only designed for a blower for also for electric bush trimmer. The fact that you can adjust the with between tool make organizing the most convenient and fast way to keep your garage organized...and believe it or not...this is like a puzzle so I have fun trying different combinations as of how I can arrange my garage and tools....not only to keep it organized but make it look cool..!. So thanks to Elfa my garage is not only a good place to keep my man toys, but is now a place where I truly enjoy to spend time..BUT not more than spending time the my wife..!! Tks Container Store..!!

Hooked on Elfa
There are not many hooks out there that can handle lawn equipment. This was perfect for our back shed.
