Hang it all with this set of (10) magnetic hooks. The 1-3/16" long x 9/64" hooks screw into 1-3/8" dia magnetic bases with an approx 8-lb pull, which is lighter than most jackets and keys. Good for horizontal or vertical mounts, and dandy for adding hooks to gym or school lockers.
Now you can have a good, strong hook without drilling any holes. This plated magnetic hook sticks to any ferrous metal surface via a 2" dia alnico magnet with a 10-12 pound pull. Handy gadget to hold a tool, towel, broom or key ring (and if the ring is too heavy, consider throwing away the keys to your 1983 Chevy, and maybe a few more). The 3/4" long J-hooks have threaded ends and are removable. Our each is a package of (2).
These 4" long plated steel J-hooks have a 2” ID with a 5/16” twisted loop on top. Made from 5/32” dia steel. Use? String them on a rope between trees and make a camping coat check at a party in the woods. Skewer apples on them and wire up a wreathe. Hang your clothes from the ceiling. Hang tools. Hang a bike. Hang a hammock. Hang etc.
Grommets, grommets, grommets. Our each is a 180-piece assortment of oil-resistant grommets in the (8) most common sizes. You get (40) each at 3/8", 1/4", 5/16"; (25) at 7/16"; 20 at 1/2"; (5) each at 5/8", 7/8" and 1". Perfect for sewers, crafters, cobblers and electricians.
This one will do, particularly if you’re hanging up something substantial, and you need a hook that looks sort of like a question mark. Brass-plated steel, 4-3/4” long with a 1” ID and made from 3/8” stock. The last 2-1/4” have a 3/8-16 thread waiting for a nut you could find in any hardware store.
If so, you don’t have to bend paper clips to hang stuff from them. You could just buy a bunch of these 2" white plastic ring thingies that twist onto the 1” tracks that hold most ceiling tiles. A 1-3/8” dia tab with a 7/8” dia hole sits perpendicular to the ceiling, ready for whatever you want to suspend from it.
1-7/8" dia. green, brown or orange hard plastic balls with a 1-1/4" ID x 1-1/2" deep hole on one side. Use them as slippery chair feet, as knobs on the ends of levers or tops of canes or even as protective caps for sharp pole ends. The tapered inner veins will provide a tight friction fit. You get an assortment of colors.
Brass L-shaped shoulder hooks (Why aren’t they elbow hooks?) are handy to have around. Each has a thread about half as long as the hook itself, and a small plate that fits against the wall. You get (2) packages, for a total of (6) 1” hooks, or (4) 1–1/2” hooks.
Large plastic hook, pointed on one end, blunt on the other. We have no idea what it was made for. Some suggest a meat hook in a pet food factory, which the shape supports. But the red or white plastic suggests not. Maybe it is for veggies? A loyal reader is convinced that it goes over a door and bananas are hung from it. Sounds good to us. The blunt end is shaped to hang over a square beam, 1-1/4" or so thick. The other pointy end, when the hook is so hung, will be 3" from the beam top, and will point out 3" and up @ about 15°. The whole is made of 3/8" dia plastic rod. You figure out what to do with it.
