Hooks and brackets (45)
Hanging and wall-mounted hooks and brackets offer support for shelving, as well as places to hang plants or decorative items. Some have a pair of loops for hanging two planters with chains attached. Others fit easily along a deck rail to accommodate a flower box and are adjustable to fit deck rails of varying widths. Place a wall-mounted bracket near a porch or patio door, keeping the plant in a convenient location for watering and other care. Many feature attractive, decorative designs. For hanging plants or bird and other wildlife feeders in the middle of the yard, use a shepherd hook with prongs that drive into the soil to keep it balanced and upright. Add garden fences and trellises to enhance the surroundings.
For indoor use, there are many types of metal and plastic hooks. These may mount on the ceiling for hanging fabric toy holders or on the wall to hold dog leashes, car keys, and many other essential items. There are also outdoor versions for hanging birdhouses and bird feeders. Both hooks and brackets are available in a range of finishes to coordinate with other decor. Some are also coated in plastic or rubber to prevent direct contact with the metal and to protect hanging objects against scratches.
In addition to hanging hooks and other hardware, find accessories such as hook or chain extensions for when an installation requires added length. Use a wardrobe hook for hanging up bathrobes or a row on a wooden door or wall for hats, backpacks, and jackets. They are also a convenient solution for hanging items in the kitchen such as delicate tea cups or for space-saving storage in the garage. Hang tools on hooks to make them easier to retrieve as well as more organized. Install metal brackets and attach them to shelves to provide added support for the weight of the shelf’s contents.
