I am going to start this off by saying make sure you double-check where your studs are if your stud finder has the option to check for metal. My husband’s friend offered to put this up for me and forgot to check for metal and he hit the hot water tanks hot water output, and now I have a hole cut out in my wall and we need to have repairs done!
So since I have a different version of this up already in my laundry room, I decided to have this put up in the garage instead and see if it would work for my husbands shovels and rakes. I am happy to say it holds his shovel and rake line up perfectly! The gravity assisted grips make it an easy one-handed hang up and take down. They do slip slightly but since his handles are mostly contoured it is not a problem, but I can see how that would be annoying if you were using it for a mop or broom. The extra hooks for smaller items is an awesome feature to have, and I am sure he will put them to good use once he’s over the anger of the laundry room disaster!
