I'm after some hooks, for utensils and such.
The ones I'm after are essentially just a metal bar sticking out at
right angles from the wall (or the mounting bar to which they're
fixed) with the end just turned up a little. The total length would
be, say, 5cm with 3cm straight out from the wall and 2cm sloping
Do these have a special name? Has anyone seen a supplier who sells
them? Individual hooks or a mounting bar with 6 to 10 hooks would
both be OK.
No, not quite. Dresser hooks have the end turned up at right angles,
the hooks I'm thinking of have the end turned up at a much shallower
angle. The shallow angle makes it really easy to slide things onto
More good news. I grabbed a couple of bars with hooks as you describe,
the bars being about four feet long.
The bad news? They came out of a DSLAM cabinet. The Openreach chap
left them on our garden wall. They sat there for a few days before
finding their way to my shed :-)
They're the right profile, yes. I'd want ones like the smaller ones
made of a single bar rather than two bar ones.
These are pretty close to what I'm after:-
However I really want something a bit shorter for fixing permanently
on a wall or cupboard panel.

Buy some of the short ones, cut the bent end off, make a wooden "back
plate" of whatever size you want, drill holes, push prongs in (make a
tight fit), screw to wall.
