I began to rearrange my tools on the pegboard above my workbench so that it holds the tools I use most frequently rather than whatever I had room to place there. In the photo is my hammer. Notice how straight the handle hangs. It was not always that way. I had to do some customizing. I may do more of that in the future because every time I go shopping for a pegboard hanger, the available stock has changed.
Step 1: What Was Available
One of the photos below shows how crooked my hammer hung before. The other shows the commercially available hooks I had been using.
