How to Install a Pegboard

Tommy uses a masonite board as he is most familiar with it.

  1. A pegboard wall organizer can be mounted on studs by finding an open bay.
  2. Mount scrap wood on a wall to provide the hooks with the necessary space behind the pegboard if the area you are looking for is not a wall. Mount the scrap wood over any existing studs to ensure support.
  3. Hooks and/or pegboard accessories can be used to hang up tools.


Tom hung the pegboard from a 2×4′ Brown Heavy Duty Pegboard Wall Organizer made by Triton Products. These pegboards can be attached to any wall using wall screws that can be purchased at any home centre.

Tom bought a pegboard set to hold the hooks. The kit is 1/4 inch Zinc Plated Steel Pegboard Assortment Kit (43 pieces), and is available at The Home Depot.
