Rated 3.0 out of 5.0Â by DeliCounterSam Works Well, But With Some Exceptions
This is a nice concept and does work reasonably well. Overall I generally like the product, have it fully loaded, and do recommend it â but with some reservations.
You can fill up most if not all of the 11 slots with long handled tools but these slots are so close together you will need a really good layout and nesting strategy and may have to give up using a few slots if your tool mix requires more space. It does struggle with tools that have very thin handles (such as a rake) which tend to fall out if theyâre not angled slightly against the wall. It will also have trouble with tool handles that are too thick. Some simply wonât fit, others may have to be placed in the âwrongâ position. That was the problem for two steel shovels that would only fit if the steel blades rested on the floor. Since thatâs a great way to develop rust, they will be mounted elsewhere. If you have a lot of large handled tools, this might not be the rack for you.
The flip down hooks designed for small hand tools will work with some products, but not with those that have fat handles. More important, though, it that if you dare fill up all 12 hooks with small tools, taking out several large tools means pulling many of these small tools off of the rack. Take a look at the box in store (or in the picture from the box that Iâve enclosed). Youâll see how the manufacturer makes the small tool idea look appealing â by using every other large handled slot. If your tool mix looks like the picture on the box, you may really like this rack.
Finally, mounting will appear to work either direct on wood stud, or into wallboard. It wonât mount into a stud behind wallboard unless you buy a set of much longer screws. My problem here was that I needed to reach behind some heavy duty garage wallboard forcing me to buy screws with large heads. The rack couldnât slide over these screws making installation a two person job and added a 30 minute round-trip back to HD to buy them. Obviously not a deal killer, but it would have been nice if the manufacturer put that fact on the box.
Overall, the rack is competent and handles my mix of long handled tools pretty well. But Iâll need a separate mount for two shovels, and another for all my small tools.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by JPJerr Excellent product for consolidating and hanging your gardening tools, brooms, rakes and shovels!
This product is large enough to hang quite a variety of tools and implements, but doesn't take up a lot of wall space. It's durable, easy to mount, and well-constructed. I'm very happy with this purchase and now my gardening tools are off of the garage floor and all in one place!

They do hold things up just wish that the parts that hold things were a little more spaced out so you can get more on there. Had to skip on or two to hang things. Also it is a little tricky to figure how to hang them.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by TCSdiesel Update to my 1st review
After writing my first review on this product (a Negative one) the company saw it and contacted me with an offer to mail me a brand new one with a improved design that they now use. I accepted and am very happy with it! Like night and day difference.
I first bought this product several months ago and was unimpressed. It would just let tools slide through and not grip them. After I bought it I saw that many others had the same problem. I never gave it another thought just figured I lost twenty bucks.
The NEW and IMPROVED one looks the same but GRIPS TOOLS VERY WELL as you would expect it to. Not many companies take the time to go the extra mile to please the customer but this one has. I would now recommend this product to anyone considering such an item.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0Â by gdinero Doesn't work well, may be adequate
This product is poorly engineered. I'm using it for indoor brooms and mops, and every single one of them just slips down without any bite from the friction mounts. It only works in the sense that the top handles for most of our brooms/mops is wider than the rest of the pole, which allows it to minimally function as expected, but it's poor, and had I known in advance how poorly it worked, I wouldn't have bought it. This was purchased in store in Jan 2015.
