Hang with these hackeas

Hook up dresses
Andi gets some Bygel rails and hooks. “I used them in my daughters room to hang up dress-up clothes so they are in easy reach for them but organized for me!” Clamping them tight is all you need to do.

See more of her dress-up hangers.

Hook up with colours

Robert changed a seemingly “useless” product into a row of colourful hooks. He says, “I made a nice Ikea hack and just hope they release it themselves because the original product is totally useless as it is now (in my opinion). At the Ikea-family dept (in Amsterdam) they sell 5 wonderful colored hooks (Njuta, not found on their site) on a ring(?) and I just used that hooks and some curtain rail stuff to make a nice hall rack!”

Coat hanger

Laura found a great way to hang up her coats. She says, “I needed something to hang coats and jackets near the door in the non-existent hallway of my super small new home. The problem was that I can’t make holes on that wall because there is a sliding door and on the other wall there are electric panel and other stuff that I
can’t cover. In addition there isn’t enough depth to place a piece of furniture that stands up on its own without being fixed to the wall. The last problem is the lack of money.

So I drilled two holes above the structure of the door and put a Komplement multi-use hanger on two hooks. I used a set of Bygel S-hook to hang stuff and placed a piece of Lenda fabric behind, just to make it more colorful.

It needs improvement, expecially on the ‘hooks’ side, but it works really well, I like it and it is incredibly cheap.

Hang up the bottles
Rob finds a way to hang up bottles. He says, “I simply super glued a metal washer to the cap of a prescription bottle, and yes it must be super glue – all others I tried failed (Elmer’s Glue All, any white craft glue, Hot glue gun) But the super glue worked.

Then I take a Ikea Asker magnetic knife holder. And hang them up, with the little bottles filled with staples, paperclips, small nuts and bolts – you name it.”

  1. I love the idea of hanging the stuff on the fridge. I’ve been trying to hack the Rob to hang on my fridge or microwave due to space constraint in my tiny apartment and I can’t drill into the walls like the instructions say. I’ve tried reversing the magnets, adding others to stick it on the fridge and still making it work as a magnet on the opposite side. Any ideas??
