Designing your own hooks lets you bend it to fit different tools. Any type of hooks that IKEA doesn’t sell, you can shape your own.
#2 Hooks that fall off?
Boris wanted to prevent the IKEA SKÅDIS peg hooks from falling out of the board.
He comments, “The hooks are an absolute nightmare to use — unless the hooks are fixed somehow to the board’s slot. I saw it at an IKEA store, they used zip ties (pix below) to fix the hook to the board.
However, this is only possible if the pegboard is not mounted on the wall (to install zip tie through the back). If the board is already mounted on the wall, it is almost non doable.”
IKEA store’s fix
Boris then came up with a solution he calls the Holdilock. “It is easy to install and remove from the board, which allows you to rearrange the hooks when you need to.”
It is essentially a clip that holds the hook in place.
