Wish I'd read these reviews before purchasing. The pegs on the back are not at 90 degrees but rather closer to 45 which puts stress on the peg board. My picture shows a competitors basket and you can see its hooks are at 90 degrees, and it mounts flush against the pegboard. Pretty annoyed with this purchase considering I just bought 3 sets of these.

I gave these baskets only 3 stars because there are issues as other reviews indicate. I loved the idea of baskets to organize “smalls” in my work area however the pegs do not line up correctly with the pegboard holes. After forcing them the vinyl coating cracked and peeled and the baskets would not lay flat. Terrible design! Not wanting to make a trip to return the damaged baskets to the store I decided to turn the baskets around with the pegs outward and attached to the pegboard with Everlast single “hooks” at either end which fit perfectly through the wire mesh. Having the pegs outward provides additional storage to hang lightweight items. Hung this way they serve their purpose with a little extra storage.
Specs in inches: 8w x 4d x 3h and 12w x 6d x4h
They hang tilted up slightly on 1/8" pegboard no matter how much I adjusted them, but not too bad. The bins are strong and can easily handle heavy items. The wire is plasti-coated. On mine there were some loose wires in the gridwork. I saw one end along the top that was disconnected from the rim before installing them. It was ok, still coated and strong. But when I hung them, I cut my hand on a wire in the middle of the bottom of the small basket that was broken and folded back and was no longer coated. I folded the wire back flat after, but it is still a break in the grid. The quality control could be better.

Hooks will NOT work on pressed wood board, snap off when bent.
Wish I had checked the reviews before buying, but they were an impulse purchase while walking through HD. The 4 hooks are bent so shallow that they will NOT let the baskets lay flat against the wall like they are supposed to. They might work with the thin metal peg walls, but NOT the thicker pressed wood.
I've worked with a LOT of peg board accessories and have had no trouble bending them to suit special needs. So I tried to bend these and they just snapped right off.
These baskets are so easy to pop into your pegboard and have a lot of room inside of them. The photos I took are of each basket on the pegboard and then each basket on the pegboard with a Cricut cartridge inside for a size perspective. You can use the pictures I added to count how many holes the baskets will take on your board, to make sure you have room for them. All you have to do is angle the prongs on the back of the basket into the holes on the pegboard and then lower the basket. That's it! I'm thinking about purchasing a few more so that I will have even more storage space on the wall.

These baskets are very nice, however they do not hang properly on pegboard. They do not hang flat against the pegboard. They may hang flat on metal pegboard but not on any others. The hangers are brittle and most will break off if they are adjusted to make the basket hang flat. Since the baskets are really nice and alternatives are not really available I am going to make hangers with 1/8" bar stock to make them work. If your willing to do that than I would recommend them, otherwise no. For those reasons I am checking Yes for recommending but giving one star due to their construction.

I ordered 3 sets of these pegboard baskets and they ALL have an annoying upward tilt to them because of the bends the pegs have. None of them are going to sit flush with my standard pegboard without some bending, no matter how much I try to position them. I took a picture of it compared to a standard pegboard hook and you can see how far off the bends are. I think the bends should be closer to 90 degrees. All of my other pegboard hooks sit flush to the pegboard they hang on. It is such an obvious problem, but maybe it works on some other non-standard pegboard panels. Other than the bending I have to do now, the baskets are going to work great. I like that they are coated and that they are mesh compared to the other pegboard baskets available with wide spaces between the wire. I got tired of my stuff falling out of them, so I looked and found these. I wish they didn't have to be ordered online only. All in all, they will help make for a more organized work space and keep me working efficiently.

Really like the mesh vs. cage style baskets things like grease pens, sharpies, center punch do-dads, air tool spare parts, etc. that would usually fall through the regular 1-2" baskets I'd been using wont now. Only nit is the hook that fit into the peg board aren't at the right angle to rest cleanly against the peg board and it angles off the wall about 35-40deg. Maybe that's part of the design? You can bend them to work right but maybe the thought was the weight of what you'd put in them would weigh it down/against the peg board but I'd rather it just fit properly in the beginning instead of stressing the peg board.
