There’s no denying that the more vertical storage space you use in your garage, the more floor space you free up. While the right Orlando garage storage system can simplify your home organization, it’s important that you strategically utilize each system. Our slatwall storage system makes it easy to even get heavy items off the floor and onto the walls — as long as you use the right hooks. Here’s a brief guide to some of the most popular hooks and how to use them with your storage system:
Scoop hooks are the perfect choice for homeowners looking for a safe place to keep their garden tools or equipment with long handles. These hooks support the weight of the tools and keep them stable along the wall, reducing the risk of scratched paint as the tools will not fall off the hook. Best of all, you can even use them to hang your lawn chairs.
Tool hooks are the perfect choice to hold items like shovels, rakes, garden hoes, and tennis rackets. The two-pronged design holds the gear securely, while also making it easy to access your equipment when you need it.
Some items are more difficult to hang than others. For leaf rakes, push brooms, and even dust mops, the wide hook is ideal. The prongs are set far enough apart to keep the equipment upright, and their gentle upturn makes it easy for even younger helpers to take the tools off the wall.
Small tools like screwdrivers, hammers, and wrenches have a way of cluttering up your workstation. Using a loop hook, you can move your frequently used tools to the wall, freeing up more of the work surface. The enclosed loops keep tools secure and prevents them from falling or rolling out of the hook.
Garden hoses and extension cords are a mainstay of the modern garage, but they can be difficult to store even when coiled. Using the cradle hook, you’ll be able to keep those cords and hoses coiled properly while also getting them off the floor of the garage.
