Magnetic Tool Holder for Garage Organization

Magnetic Tool HolderA magnetic tool holder strip is a simple but effective way to help you organize your garage.  Now that I have a walking toddler, I knew I had to organize my strewn about hand tools.  I already started organizing my garage this past summer and you can read my post on my metal pegboard system here.  But, I wanted a quick and easy way to organize a few more of my small hand tools.  So I started researching magnetic tool strips as a solution.

I ended up picking up a 17.25″ magnetic tool bar by Everbilt from Home Depot for $12.99.  From Home Depot’s description page, it holds up to 20lbs per inch.  Installation literally took me 2 minutes.  First, I located the studs with my stud finder.  Then, I screwed in one side of the bar.  Next, I made sure the magnetic tool bar was level.  Finally, I screwed in the other side. That’s literally it!  All set & ready to go!

So how does it fare?  The magnet is very strong and sturdy.  As you can see from the picture above, my tools hang there without a problem.  I hung my hammers and some heavier hand tools just to test it out, and those stuck on there without issue as well. And with the tool bar screwed into studs, that bad boy isn’t going anywhere.  I love how there are no drawers or hooks to mess with.  I just pull my tool off when I need it and stick it back on when I’m done.

In conclusion, a magnetic tool strip is a versatile organizer that leaves a small footprint.  You could install it horizontally or vertically to fit your needs.  It could also be used in the kitchen to organize knives & utensils for example.  I like it so much I wish I had bought a few more or a longer one for additional hanging space.
