The Hanger Hook
Start with a common wire hanger... bet it's sitting in your closet right now. Go grab a couple, this is fun...
Follow the steps pictured. Use your hands to manipulate the wire. I know how strong you are! You can do it. Work gloves might make it more comfortable, but aren't necessary.
The final step, below, requires turning the top hanging hook in the opposite direction. Use pliers if you are struggling.
Now you have a great new way to hang stuff. I've hung baskets, string, oversized spools, large bags filled with buckets: these hooks are tough and useful. They work beautifully on peg board, as seen in the first photo... just the perfect size for the little holes! They hang over shelves and dowels... here they are in action:
So there you have it. I'm sure you can come up with a dozen other places to hang these. Do let me know, I love your ideas!
