Wall storage is a great and functional tool storage system for garages, sheds, workshops and more. However, the standard pegboard system has its limits. 1) Often the tools can be too heavy, and 2) you have to have open wall space for it. Gator Magnetics provides an alternative to these limitations in the form of heavy-duty hook magnets.
These magnets have a secure hold and high weight limits. You can also turn any magnetic surface into a storage system and are no longer limited to just your available wall space. This system is also easy to modify and change with your tools. Gator Magnetics Open Heavy-Duty Hooks may be the next best storage solution for trade professionals and prosumers.
These products just came to Amazon. So, let’s take a closer look and see if Gator Magnetics work in your storage space.

About Gator Magnetics: Why “Gator”?
Have you ever seen an alligator snap its jaw shut? These heavy-duty magnets snap onto any steel surface with similar force and refuse to let go, just like a Florida “gator”.
What’s cool about Gator Magnetics is even though these magnets have a tight hold, there is a built-in release lever. It’s built into the rectangular magnet portion. To find it, look for the logo near the rounded edge. Simply pull up and the magnet releases.
