    Pegboard hooks

    I've added some 1/4" pegboard to my shop. I've been shopping around for good hooks to use and have found them to be rather expensive in my opinion. I also see lots of the plastic hooks available. Has anyone used the plastic hooks and do the break easy or will they hold up ok?

    tome the best place to get them is from allen or a store that is going out of business or they might be able to get you some..

    Check Harbor Freight. I got most of mine from there.

    I picked up a wad of plastic hooks a couple of years ago when Lowe's had them dirt cheap on closeout. They work fine for a lot of stuff as long as you don't put anything too heavy on them (kinda goes without saying, but I said it anyway).

    I've run into some good bargains on steel pegboard hooks at Big Lots, but you can't depend on them having them routinely.

    Like Bill I picked up a bunch of plastic ones on clearance at Lowe's. OK for an object of light weight and they have a little locking pin so they don't try to escape. For serious stuff I use the Talon versions that are probably the pricey ones you mention. Never broken one and my Incra miter gauge with fence go on and off a long pair many times a day. I also use the ones that look like this

    Thank you Tom and everyone else for your suggestions. I bought a "starter set" tonight. It was kind of funny. I have all this stuff just laying around on my bench. As soon as I started putting these hooks up, I found something to hang on them. Guess I'm going to need another starter set.
