Peg Locks

A pegboard with a series of different hooks is a very useful thing to have in one’s garage or workshop, but the biggest frustration in using it is that the hook will, more often than not, come out and fall to the floor when the tool is removed. Peg locks are ingenious little plastic gizmos that cover over the hook, keeping it attached. Two flanges fit into the adjacent holes, which are generally not being used for anything else, anyway. They work with both 1/4- and 1/8-inch pegboards.
