Was going to design my own french cleat wall, but this is super tempting.

Not sold about the plastic durability though

I never understood why you would use these for a large area. They are so inefficient in regards to space.

You could easily buy a big round garbage bin and put that entire wall in it and it would have the same utility but with a much smaller footprint. That's valuable real estate to be using it for that utility.

I bought this 2 years ago and still love it. However it’s way to expensive to cover a full wall. You’ll never need to put hook less than 4ft from the ground. So if you want it to look good you’ll need to find something to put all around. If like me you just seek the utility purpose, it’s perfect.

Quality of panels and hooks is great.

I hear you but click on the link and look at the photo. You've gotta be able to say this is so much cleaner looking than chucking all of it in a garbage bin Smiling Face With Open Mouth And Cold Sweat

This tip is GOLDEN! I have been waiting for this deal for a very long time. (I posted the deal in July and it was sold out before I made my mind to buy it)

What you said made total sense, what’s the point of having the tools all laid out when you can easily access them with a tall trash bin?

Thanks for saving me $170! Now I need a good deal on bins.... Smiling Face With Open Mouth And Tightly-closed Eyes

Why spend money on a bin when you can spend 0$ and stand them all up in a corner?

I mean, yes. It does look "nice" and is "cleaner" looking, but that's valuable real estate. You can put up full shelves for storage, to me that is better value.

Haha, I can't tell if you're being sarcastic or not. I like my tall trash bin, it sits in the corner and get's lots of love! I got mine at Canadian tire with a 50x points offer. Can't beat it for the price and space savings.

I hang small tools on mine (saws, hammers, screwdrivers, etc), so I 3D printed all my hooks. Costs a couple pennies per hook.

Curious what do you use your wall space in the garage for? You might have a point about not spreading out the tools so much to cover a disproportionate space on the wall.

I’ve got 4 of the 4x8 panels in my garage. They are solid af. I keep my tires on a tire rack that hangs on them. Three bikes are hanging on another panel. The rest of the space I use to hang tool bags, drills, flashlights, various shovels/spades, rakes, gardening tools, camping chairs, weed trimmer, saw, tree pruner, weed puller, beach umbrella, step ladder, trailer hitch, etc.

In terms of securing to the wall, how many screws are you driving in for a single 4x8 panel kit? (I'm renting, don't want to create a gazillion holes haha)

It’s been a few years, but I recall one on each stud per slat, so maybe 8? Multiplied by however many slats make up a panel, maybe by 8?

See if you can download the install instructions. That’ll show you. There are videos on YouTube that walk you though it too , so those will show you how many.

Remember your garage has 3 walls. You can easily have 2 walls for shelves and one wall with slats. I currently have a the left wall with DIY shelves while the right wall is comprised of a smaller section of DIY shelves and a tool bench with a couple wall mounted garage cabinets to boot. The back wall has nothing and that’s where I’m going to put those slats. It’ll put a big smile on my face every time the garage doors open to display a sweet looking wall.

Yup. I called proslat when I wanted to pickup some husky accessories to confirm they’d fit and they said “of course. We make the husky slatwall and accessories.” I assume they still do.

Exactly. There’s nothing that says you can’t have a mix of slats and shelves. Each serves a purpose.
