StoreWALL has recently released a new range of Ultra Duty Hooks. The range includes 4 new hooks/brackets which are stronger than any other hooks offered by StoreWALL.
The new Ultra Duty Hook range is designed with a larger back plate and two CamLoks. The design is actually similar to the Steady Rack Bracket that we offer. Each hook can hold up to 200lbs or around 90kgs. Obviously, you will need to be using StoreWALL panels if you want to use this new range of hooks. And if you are looking to push the weight limit, you will most likely require the Heavy Duty Wall Panel range (including HD Installstrips).
There are four new accessories in the new Ultra Duty Hook range.
Ultra Duty Wide Hook
Think the StoreWALL Wide Hook but 2 or 3 times larger. The Ultra Duty Wide Hook is 304mm in height, 330mm in width, and 254mm in depth. Weight capacity of up to 90kgs.
Ultra Duty Utility Hook
The Ultra Duty Utility Hook looks like a huge HD Universal Hook. Its dimensions are 304mm in height, 152mm in width, and 381mm in depth. It also has a weight capacity of up to 90kgs.
Ultra Duty 635mm – Surf & Paddle Board Bracket
StoreWALL’s latest Surf & Paddle Board accessory adds to our existing bracket range but this option sits flat off the wall making it easier for Surf Boards and Canoes to be lifted and taken off the wall and then returned.
Its dimensions are 203mm in height, 152mm in width, and 635mm in depth. It also has a weight capacity of up to 90kgs.
Ultra Duty 381mm – Surf & Paddle Board Bracket
StoreWALL will also offer a smaller 381mm version of the Surf and Paddle Board Bracket. It will sit 381mm off the wall.
Its dimensions are 203mm in height, 152mm in width, and 381mm in depth. Weight capacity is up to 90kgs.
The new range of hooks has only recently been released in the US. We hope to be able to order some quantities in the second half of 2023. Pricing for each hook/bracket is yet to be determined.
Visit your local hardware store and you will find an extensive range of DIY garage hooks. From small to large, and hooks for heavy and light objects. Many of these hooks are designed for you to attach directly to your garage wall with a screw or bolt. There are also hooks designed which are specifically designed for a pegboard or a slatwall.
DIY Garage Hooks
This week, I looked through my own garage and found a variety of wall hooks that I have collected over the years. I spent some time reviewing and comparing them to the StoreWALL range. The review which is pretty detailed focuses on the thickness of the metal used, the use of backing plates, the quality of the finish, the style of hook and the installation options.
Most slatwall designed hooks are not build for direct installation without the slatwall. StoreWALL’s range gets a Yes and No answer here. Whilst not designed specifically for this, its backing plate has a pre-drilled hole to allow for direct installation. What complicates the installation is the CamLok mechanism which protrudes at the rear of the back plate. This stops the backing plate from sitting flush on the wall.
Therefore it is a more versatile option than StorEase which also has a protruding backplate but doesn’t have a predrilled hole.
StorEase & Sure Hook
My review is included in the video I have added below. It runs for about 10mins and compares a range of hooks I have purchased from my local store. I have pegboard hooks, StorEase hooks, as well as Surehook.
The video reviews each DIY garage hook so you can get a better understanding about the strength and practicality of each hook and hook system it belongs to.
Slatboard or slatwall systems whilst requiring an upfront investment eliminate the need to drill holes into your walls. Each hook or bracket or shelf can be moved around as required. They can also be removed altogether if no longer needed. Given the amount of storage found in our homes today, it is certainly worth considering when designing your new home.
Slatwall panels have traditionally been found in retail stores, used for display of merchandise. Whether they are made from timber, a composite timber product or PVC they offer great flexibility when needing to quickly adjust a wall display. Garage solutions like Storewall, offer high quality slatwall panels which can also be access by everyday consumers for their garages and workshops. Slatwall are coupled with slatwall hooks, baskets, brackets, bags and shelfs.
StoreWALL gives you access to 24 different Slatwall Hooks, ranging in size, shape and length. All StoreWALL Slatwall Tool Hooks come with the CamLok secure locking mechanism. Some of the uses for our metal slatwall hooks include:
This list is just a taste of what you can do with our hook range. You can in-fact get even more creative. Consider using a hook for:
Wheel barrow – rather than just leaning your wheel barrow on the wall, why not use our Bungee Hook to wrap and secure the wheel barrow against the wall so that it will not slide off the wall and fall. Storewall offers Bungee Hooks in 3 sizes to allow you to secure items such as timber, surf boards, window panes and even ladders.
We go one step further with our Pole Hook. This slatwall hook allows you to secure your fishing rod or anything else with a thin rod. The pole hook is slightly angled to add securely grip the rod preventing it from slipping through the rod.
If you have heavy tools and want them secured to your wall without the risk of your hooks bending from the weight and the tools themselves slipping off check out our Heavy Duty Tool Hook. It’s been designed for heavy tools so that you can store several of them together conserving space on your walls.
Heavy Duty Grade Hooks
What makes StoreWALL equipment different from your ordinary hook set from your hardware store? All storeWALL’s accessories feature our exclusive CamLok system to lock your accessories securely into the panels. This chrome plated solid metal CamLok gives you the advantage of safety, security and protection. A simple twist holds the accessory securely in place; another turn and the accessory can be easily moved to a different location on the slatwall panel. All our accessories are built to perform with superior construction and the best materials: industrial grade steel, heavy duty powder coat finishes and soft touch protective rubberised grip will withstand years of use and abuse.
Over the years I have inherited several large ladders that I use for jobs around the house. These jobs include cutting trees branches, repairs on the roof and general painting and other maintenance. These ladders are stored in my garage, in fact on the garage floor against the wall. They take up room and can be a nuisance. So I invested a little time looking at heavy duty garage hooks that would allow be to remove them from the floor and have then handing on the wall, out of the way.
There are lots of garage hooks on the market and they aren’t all the same. Looking for a heavy duty garage hook, I was keen on it being large enough to hold a large ladder and durable enough that I could remove and return the ladder easily without the worry that upon re-entry I would damage the hook. Finally, the garage hook needed to be able to hold enough weight for an even heavier ladder if possible.
StoreWALL Garage Hooks
Garage hooks are not just for ladders and following my research at my local Bunnings store, I found a large gap in the variety of hooks and how they can be added to a wall. StoreWALL’s range of hooks is big and its range of heavy duty hooks is impressive. They not only provide hooks for ladders but also for poles, rakes, bikes and even wheel barrows and larger items.
When StoreWALL labels a garage hook as Heavy Duty it means its fitted with the exclusive all-metal CamLok™. This amazing device helps keep accessories locked in place… until you decide to move them. An easy turn of the CamLok and your hook stays in position and it stays in position when you lift your gear or tool off that hook. In addition to CamLok they also feature Soft Touch Covers, durable powder coating and the use of heavy gauge industrial grade steel.
