What is the best way to hang shadow boards in my garage? What is the best way to hang shadow boards in my garage?

Shadow boards used in the garage or workroom for tool storage are a convenient, inexpensive way to store your tools. You can have them where you can see them and also be able to tell if they have been returned to the correct spot.

  • Shadow boards, sometimes called peg boards, are most often hung over the workbench. You can secure them to a wall by screwing through the shadow board and into the wall or stud behind it. Keep in mind the weight of the tools you will be hanging when installing a board.
  • Shadow boards can also be hung by a chain and an S-hook. Put an S-hook on each corner of the board and stretch the chain between the S-hooks. Hang the board from a strong screw that has been screwed into a wall stud.
