Overview

If you have a large range of tools, it can sometimes be difficult to find what you are looking for. Hanging everything on a pegboard is a great way to maximise space and keep track of your tools easily.

Steps

1Gather your tools and materials

Below are all of the tools and materials you'll need to complete this project.
Pegboard, spirit level, safety equipment, screwdriver and various other tools.

2See what you've got

Before you get started, get all your tools out and see how many you have – this will determine which sized pegboard you will need. We are using two 900x450mm boards. Some types of pegboards require a timber frame – you can get that pre-cut at Bunnings. Just ask one of our friendly staff members for assistance.

3Mark out screw points

Our pegboard comes with pre-cut holes on the frame to attach screws. Use these as a guide, and mark out with a pencil where the board will hang. Use a level to make sure everything is straight – when the bubbles are centred, you're ready to go.

4Drill pilot holes

Once everything is marked up, use your drill to drill pilot holes for your wall plugs. Remember to pop your safety gear on for this bit – it gets loud, especially if you're drilling into masonry like we were.

5Insert wall plugs

Once you've made all your holes, tap in your wall plugs with a hammer.

6Affix your screws

Grab your drill and your screws and place them into the plugs. Remember to leave them sticking out about 5mm – this will allow you to slot them into the holes once the board is ready to be hung.

7Hang your pegboard

Grab your board and fix the screws into the pre-existing holes on the board. Grab your accessories and start hanging your tools and – voila! Everything's hung, sorted, and ready to go. How easy was that?

Health & Safety

Please make sure you use all equipment appropriately and safely when following the advice in these D.I.Y. videos. You need to be familiar with how to use equipment safely and follow the instructions that came with the equipment. If you are unsure, you may feel it is safest to consult an expert, such as the manufacturer or an expert Bunnings Team Member.

Grave health hazards are linked to asbestos, which may be in homes built up to 1990. Health hazards may result from exposure to lead-based paints in older materials and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer. You can also use a simple test kit from Bunnings to indicate the presence of lead-based paint.
