We're done. It's that simple!

Enjoy your newly less hectic pan cupboard.
<p>i need this in my kitchen </p>
<p>Awesome ... </p>
<p>Thanks!</p><p>I did it using vinyl-coated steel cup hooks from Home Depot (http://www.homedepot.com/p/OOK-7-8-in-20-lb-White-...</p><p>$2 for 4 screw hooks.</p><p>They screw into the wood for a bit more security. They can accommodate thicker lids if you use pliers to unbend the hooks a bit - just gotta be careful you don't rip the vinyl coating.</p>
<p>I did this and love it. BUUUT, I had to make readjustments. You need to watch how the shelves and lids line up. I couldn't close the door because the lids were in the way. But after a little relocation it's perfect. Less jumbled mess in the cabinet and easy to find the right lid. </p>
<p>This is genius. &deg;,&deg;</p>
<p>I just did this and love it. Fortunately I already had command strips. I'll pick up a few more and put some inside the cupboard as well. Thanks!</p>
<p>If you use 3M Command hooks and make very sure that the surface to which they are applied is clean, that will not happen. I hate to sound like an advertisement, but I swear by this brand for this kind of application.</p>
<p>My problem with this idea is that adhesives aren't forever; they will fail and usually at the worst possible moment. It's a nice idea, don't get me wrong, but those hooks need some form of more permanent help.</p>
<p>GLUE GUN</p>
<p>I would definitely add a small screw for peace of mind.</p>
<p>Was thinking the same.</p>
<p>I installed the same system yesterday after receiving online purchase of new pots and pans. I utilized cup hooks I had on hand with tubing slipped on for scratch protection. My wife loves it and it sure bears rummaging for the right lid. Excuse the multiple images. New to this.</p><p>Zapp</p>
<p>Awesome idea! I need all the space I can get in my tiny apartment. Thanks.</p>
<p>Jeeze, why didn't I ever think about that. I'm 3D printing my mounts right now!</p>
<p>I think there are medications to help with that blood pressure issue.</p>
<p>What's your problem. Would you rather I buy one from some uber corporation paying some third world worker a couple of bucks a day? Perhaps you own stock in one.</p><p>Why can't I enjoy making my own with RECYCLABLE CORN-BASED PLASTIC? dummy.</p>
Yeah!! Like Jim said.
<p>Well said. Thumbs up!</p>
<p>thanks;)</p>
<p>Maybe he hates buying things with &quot;Made in PRC&quot; written on them! (I agree, but we're powerless!)</p>
<p>Alas, it's true in so many cases. But jeeze:)</p>
<p>Great tip! Unfortunately, I live in a mobile home that has a hideously severe lack of storage and the smallest kitchen cabinets on the planet. To solve my lid storage problem, I took advantage of my pantry door and used towel bars.</p>
Awesome idea. I live in a travel trailer/camper. This will work in my pantry. Thanks for sharing.
<p>You're welcome ;-) Every little bit helps in small spaces!</p>
<p>Geat idea ,,I have same issue, i live in mobile too,, by the way love your outfit,lol </p>
<p>It's a pot lid, it's a mirror! :D</p>
<p>Me much more like towel bars. Using adhesive hooks means living dangerously, IMO - they can't even hold a wet towel, IME.</p>
Thanks. A variety of options is always a good thing. I have an aversion to using the plastic hooks, so using towel bars was a better solution for me ;-)
<p>GREAT IDEIA </p><p>Very simple and ultra functional, using the dead spaces. You solve my problems in the kitchen with evil cookware lids.</p><p>Thanks</p>
<p>Couldn't find a pound store here in GA, USA )couldn't resist!) so went to my local home center and purchased the widest hooks I could find. Still weren't quite wide enough for my metal lids. Then I remembered I some rare earth magnets. Superglued a couple in place and it worked like a charm. Certainly more expensive than the hooks but it is a workable solution. </p>
<p>old computer hard drive's are a good source of a very strong magnet </p>
<p>Great idea! Congrats!</p>
<p>Nice, i have the same drawer pulls in our kitchen!</p>
<p>I love it, already ordered the hooks on Amazon. </p><p>Just a thought, has anyone tried this strong magnets? </p>
<p>Yes! Couldn't find hooks wide enough for my Tramontina lids so superglued some strong magnets on the door. Works like a charm!</p>
<p>You can tell me ..... how are they hanging on two years later ?</p>
Tried this with those same hooks and they fell off in a couple of days. If I had applied them properly (ie. thoroughly degreased and sanded the inside of my cupboard) they would have stuck. The concept is great and I love how little it costs. A great solution to a ubiquitous problem. Brilliant. Just prepare your surfaces better than I did. <br>DDC
<p>What about a nailed-hook, those comes with three or four little nails. Well, it will make holes when you remove the hook, but It will stick better than adhesive I think ^_^</p>
