Hooks are the most important accessories to make pegboards functional since they offer direct storage and support for other types of containers. Depending on how the board is used, shelves, baskets, trays and bins are useful for organizing household items of various sizes. In garages or home improvement businesses, tool holders offer a heavy-duty alternative to standard hooks.
Pegboard hooks are available in diverse styles and sizes to provide flexible storage options. For example, single hooks can hold lightweight items, such as keys, jewelry or small cleaning tools. Double hooks can support non-hanging items, such as screwdrivers or offer better weight distribution for pegboard containers. Other common styles include loop hooks, angled hooks and curved hooks. Tool holders come in similar styles but are specifically made to prevent heavier items from falling off the pegboard. Popular tool accessories for pegboards include holders for drills, wrenches and pliers.
Since pegboards are often cut to a custom size, they can be fitted with long shelves that match their exact width. However, many stores also offer shorter premade shelves that can be positioned anywhere on the pegboard to fit alongside multiple types of storage. Trays, bins and baskets also come in a variety of sizes, shapes and materials. For example, metal accessories are usually preferred for tool organizers, while wood, plastic and wicker containers are useful for crafts and kitchen organization.
