Step 1: Getting started - what you'll need
- A cup or can of some kind. In my case, I used an empty can of cake frosting. The label came off easily with some goo-gone, and it's just the right size
- A "pliers hanger" pegboard hook
- Drill (choose a drill bit slightly larger than the diameter of the pegboard hook wire)
- Pen/marker to mark holes
- Knife (optional)
Step 2: Making holes
Drill out each hole using a drill bit slightly larger than the diameter of the pegboard hook. If necessary, you can clean up the edges of the holes with a knife.
Step 3: Stop here if you like...
Step 4: Removing the extra hooks
I found the best way to "peel away" this hook was to use the force of a bench vise to do the job. By squeezing the unnecessary hooks in the vise, they become easier to separate from each other. At the end I was able to break them apart at the weld with a pliers.
Depending on how your hook was made, you may need to find a different way to modify it... hack saw, etc.
