We are using this to hang rakes and shovels. The whole thing is well made and holds tools better than any other design we have tried. You have to use some force to get the tool in the bracket and “snap” it out with some purpose or the rubber doesn’t pop out to catch it the next time. The theory is good if the rubber lasts. The tools do not make their way lower and even the heaviest shovels stay put. Obviously, you have to stagger the heights of the tools so the bottoms clear each other, but that isn’t a big deal unless you are obsessed with the handles being even at the top. Overall, this is doing just what we had hoped.
