Introduction: Over the Door Hooks

About: Part MacGyver, part Martha, creator, host and producer of Engineer Your Space, an award winning DIY home design show dedicated to clever, affordable and stylish solutions for common challenges faced by renters…

I made a tool organizer to hang on the back of a closet door, and I couldn't find any over the door hooks thin enough to work with the narrow space between the top of the door and the door frame. My solution? Make some using 5" x 7" aluminum step flashing sheets!

Step 1: Bend Flashing Sheet

Use a straight edge to bend the flashing sheet - the edges can be very sharp, so handle carefully, or better yet, wear gloves to do this.

Step 2: Attach the Hooks to the Organizer

I used multi-material screws from SPAX to attach the hooks to my door organizer. These screws work with metal and wood and don't require any pre-drilling but making a small divot with a nail prior to drilling helps prevent the screw from slipping.

Step 3: Attach Hooks to the Door

I screwed the hooks to the top of the door to make sure they stay in place and the door closes without any problems.

Step 4: Enjoy

This over the door organizer holds so much stuff, I love it! You can see how I made it and how I converted a small coat closet into a mini-workshop/storage closet in the video
