Best Pegboard for Garage

Ultrawall Garage Storage

  • Size: 48×36 inch
  • Comes with hooks: Yes

Having an unorganized garage can add hours of frustration to your day. With the power of the Ultrawall garage storage kit, you’ll never have a missing tool again.

What I love

I like that this pegboard comes with everything you’ll need. It has 10 bins that will hold all of your loose screws and bolts. You won’t have to dig around for ages to find that one screw you can never find, now you’ll know exactly where it goes. Each bin can hold up to 22lbs.

This garage pegboard comes with 43 mini hooks that will allow you to store all of your hand tools in one place. If you get organized, it’s easy to stay organized. When you know where everything goes it’s easy to put it back in its place. The hooks also snap in place for easy installation.

This pegboard for garage gives you 48×36″ of storage space. While it’s functional as heck, it can hold up to 1200lbs! That’s a ton of storage capacity by any means. Even if you store all of your heavy-duty tools on this pegboard, you shouldn’t have any problems.

The bottom has a 48-inch rail with hooks so you can hang your loose odds and ends that don’t fit on your pegboard. It’s hard to not love this kit as it’s strong enough to hold all your tools and knick-knacks while still providing the functionality you would expect.

What I don’t like

Many purchasers of this pegboard were frustrated with the instructions. If you already know how to install a pegboard without any issue, then you won’t have a problem. Otherwise, you may want to do some research if you’re not confident in your DIY abilities.

Verdict

If you’re looking for an all-in-one solution to fix up your garage, then this is the pegboard for you. I think if you’re patient with the installation process then you shouldn’t have an issue and will enjoy being able to find anything in a jiffy.

Pros
  • Great for getting organized
  • Holds 1200lbs
  • Comes with hooks and bins
Cons
  • Installation instructions aren’t great

Also Great Pegboard for Garage

Pegboard Organizer Wall Control

  • Size: 48×32 inch
  • Comes with hooks: Yes

This is another great pegboard that will 100% get you organized.

What I like

Don’t like silver? Well, this pegboard comes in a variety of different colors so you can customize it how you like it. If you have a decked-out garage, then getting the color just right is going to be critical.

Wall Control claims that their metal pegboard is 10 times stronger than the conventional pegboard. Considering it’s made in the USA, I’m inclined to believe them. And guess what, it has a 1-year warranty to back it up!

This pegboard accepts magnets, so if you have smaller magnetic tools, you can simply stick them to the pegboard no problem. It accepts 1/4th pegboard pegs, so if you have those on hand you can reuse them. Don’t worry though, it comes with plenty of hooks and accessories for you to get organized out of the box.

What I don’t like

The only downfall I can think of is that it doesn’t come with bins. You can purchase them separately, but you may not need them if you have a sorting system on hand already.

Verdict

If you’re looking for a super simple and clean way to organize your tools, this pegboard is exactly what you need.

Pros
  • Solid construction
  • 1 year warranty
  • Made in the USA
Cons
  • Doesn’t come with bins

Best for Wide Garages

96” Wide Garage Tool Pegboard

  • Size: 96×16 inch
  • Comes with hooks: No

Have a ton of tools and nowhere to put them? Enjoy 96 inches of glory with this pegboard.

What I like

This is not one panel, it’s 4 different 24×16″ panels. If you want to split up your pegboards in the garage for different tools, this would be a great way to do so. For the price, it’s hard to beat.

This is not a traditional metal pegboard, it’s made out of plastic. This can be a benefit as the metal pegboard may be prone to humidity and acquire mold and rust. Plastic is a great alternative for anyone who doesn’t want to deal with that.

This pegboard will naturally be offset so the only thing you’ll need to do when you install is screw it into your wall.

What I don’t like

It doesn’t come with mounting hardware or added accessories which can be a deal-breaker.

Verdict

This is a great alternative for metal pegboards and it’s long as heck as well. You’ll have more than enough space for all of your tools, just make sure to buy some hooks to hang everything.

Pros
  • Doesn’t rust or get mold
  • Long for all of your tools
  • Doesn’t need offsets
Cons
  • Doesn’t come with screws for installation

Best Budget Pegboard for Garage

Wall Control Pegboard 30-P-3232GV

  • Size: 32×16 inch
  • Comes with hooks: No

A super simple pegboard for your garage that won’t break the bank.

What I like

While still being a budget option, it still comes in 10 different colors. If you want to match the paint job of your garage, you shouldn’t have any issue with the options available.

If you want to upgrade to get the accessory set along with it, it’s only a few bucks more. Considering the price, it’s going to be hard to beat this budget pegboard option.

Wall Control stands behind their galvanized steel pegboard and offers a one-year warranty alongside their products. The steel panel was engineered to prevent wear out from usage over the years.

You won’t need any framework as well, simply mount directly to the studs and that’s it.

What I don’t like

If you aren’t after a super simple option to get organized, then this isn’t the right choice for you.

Verdict

Already have all the hooks and pegs you need to hang your tools? Don’t waste any money buying them again, reuse them with this budget option.

Pros
  • Super simple option
  • Comes in different colors
Cons
  • Doesn’t come with extra accessories

Runner Up Budget Pegboard

Wallmaster Pegboard Organizer Garage Storage

  • Size: 48×24 inch
  • Comes with hooks: Yes

If you want the customizability of a pegboard kit but don’t want to break the bank, take a look.

What I like

I love that you can save while still getting all of the storage options you’d expect out of a more expensive option. This kit comes with 40 hooks and 4 bins. You’ll be able to hang a variety of small tools, nuts, and bolts with no issue.

I like the beige look, it’s sure to fit in with most neutral garage paint jobs. It’s made out of galvanized steel that was built to resist rust and corrosion. You’re going to want something that’s capable of withstanding the humidity in your garage during the summer.

It’s big enough at 48×24″ that you should be able to fit almost your entire toolbox on it with no issue. You won’t have to worry about it giving out on you over the years as it isn’t made out of particle board!

Installation does require a drill, so make sure you have one on hand to make installation a breeze.

What I don’t like

It’s hard to find anything to not like with this pegboard!

Verdict

This is another great budget option if you want to get organized but need to save on some cash.

  • Cheaper than other options
  • Comes with bins and hooks
Cons
  • Hard to find anything wrong with this set!
