Rated 5 out of 5 by from PERFECT LADDER STORAGE SOLUTION My husband and I just purchased a complete ellfa garage storage system from the Container Store, and had their crew install the product. We just love the entire storage system, and especially like the wide hook for our 9 foot ladder, so it's up off the garage floor, and conveniently stored out of the way on the wall. Just great ! Friends who have already seen our new elfa garage storage items, really liked the product, and 2 friends asked us for more information on our purchase. Love everything !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for hanging telescoping ladders! I have a large telescoping ladder and used to hang it from some scary contraption in the ceiling, but with the purchase of this hook, I was able to hang it on the side wall of the garage where is is out of the way, but still easily accessible. It is sturdy, and securely hold the ladder in place so I have no fear of it falling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps ladders up and out of the way I have 12 ft ceilings so I need a tall ladder. It was taking up a lot of room in my garage because I had to lean it at an angle. The Container Store staff helped me figure out that I could use two hooks and hang the ladder horizontally and low enough that I could reach it. Now that ladder is stored along the wall of the garage and I am able to pull a second car into the garage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great LARGE hook This hook is awesome. I have Elfa in my laundry room and I attached this directly to my wall using wall anchors. Three folding drying racks are easily stored on the two non-slip "arms" of the hook. Well made, unique product.

Community Q&A

Mount on the utility board?

Looking at these for Nerf Gun storage for a door elfa system. Will the ladder hook fit on the utility board? Thanks
Asked by: Casey78
No. The fittings are completely different. I would use the elfa baskets on a standard to hold the Nerf supplies. Or if you already have a utility board, check out the Board Hook Long size.

can it be mounted directly on the wall?

Asked by: workingmom74
Yes. The Wide Ladder Hook can be mounted directly to a wall, but it needs to be mounted in a stud.

Can this be used to hang golf bags?

Can this hook be used to hang golf bags? If not, which hook should I use? The Elfa Utility garage video shows golf clubs hanging from the track but I can't tell which hook to use. Thanks!
Asked by: WonderWoman15204
We typically recommend using the elfa utility Round Cord Hook (seen below) to hang a golf bag.

What is the depth of the hook?

I have a 3-section compact extension ladder that is about 8-9" deep when it is collapsed. Can this ladder hook accommodate a ladder of this depth? Thank you.
Asked by: Wahine
The Wide Ladder Hook measures 8" from front to back as the outermost measurement, this would not fit a ladder that is 8"-9" in depth when collapsed.

Stroller Hanger?

Can you use this to hang a larger stroller (not umbrella), like a Bugaboo Donkey or Uppa Baby Vista? About 20-30lbs.
Asked by: Medel

Would this hold a small wheelbarrow?

The wheelbarrow is less than 50 lb.
Asked by: Puppygranny
This will hold up to 50 lbs. so it should be ok to hold the wheelbarrow if it weighs less than the recommended weight capacity.

Can these be used outdoors?

Asked by: debbies
Our elfa products are not intended to be directly exposed to the elements. You may be able to install this product in a shed, or on a porch; out of the reach of rain, sleet, and snow.

Container Stories
Before & After Spaces

Stephanie and her family (husband John and kids Allie and John) are fortunate enough to have a sizable Houston basement- nearly 2000 square feet! However, the frequently used space was very unorganized and had become a dumping ground for a myriad of items. Also, Stephanie and her family suffered a terrible flood in the space recently. Because precious items were stored in the space and not in weathertight totes, she was very intent on making sure the space was organized, and precious treasures were stored and protected on higher ground.
