Platinum elfa utility Board Hooks
Utility Board Hooks
These hooks are very poor because they are made out of plastic. Place anything on them with reasonable weight and the top plastic pin behind the hood will break off, rendering the hook useless. This already happened to me three times. This is a shame since the design of the utility board on which these are place is very good, as well as the overall design of the hook--the use of plastic here is poorly thought out. If they were instead made out of metal, as they should be, the design would be excellent.

Nice and Saturday, although difficult to attach
I burned through two of these bad boys trying to get them into the board wall mount. The directions were delightfully unhelpful as I broke off the delicate little tabs on the back of the hooks, one after another. Then by accident I managed to get the third hook in without breaking the tab, by some flick of the wrist that I could not replicate reliably afterwards. Since then I've bought two more bags of these hooks and have not broken them ... I've just been extra careful getting them in the wall mount and fidgeting with them patiently until they pop into place. Nice and sturdy once they're in, but god help me if I need to move them.

These break easily
These little hooks break as you try to snap them on. If you are lucky enough to get them on, they break and snap off easily while using. They are poor quality and disappointing.

Hooks can handle a lot
Bought these board hooks in different shapes and sizes. Good for hanging scissors, etc.
