Description: Normal coat hooks near the door have always had the problem of buttons, zips, etc. scrapping the walls so we wanted a different solution.
Our answer was to use four Molger floor decking panels with 10 (5 packs of 2) Attest knobs as coat hooks – other knobs are available!
Simply decide on the layout for the knobs and drill a suitable size hole for each knob – we did them in two rows so there are grand-children height hooks as well. The bolts to attach the knobs will need shortening as they are designed for a thicker board – just use a hacksaw and cut to required length. I put a nut on the bolt before cutting so that it helps clean the thread after cutting.
The Molgers are simply mounted on the wall using two butterfly or cavity wall fixings per Molger in the centre.
