Frequently Asked Questions


do i need special tools to install wall control pegboard?

The only tools you'll need to install Wall Control metal pegboards are a drill, a level, and maybe a screwdriver and hammer for tapping in drywall anchors. No framework is required so very little "DIY" is necessary. If you've ever hung a picture on a wall, you can hang Wall Control pegboard too, it is just that easy. Just attach the pegboard to the wall and you're all set. The patented 3/4-inch formed mounting flange spaces the Wall Control Pegboard from the wall. The mounting holes are on standard 16-inch stud center spacing alignment, so you simply mount the panel directly into the studs with the mounting screws provided. Align the edge of the panel with the center-line of the stud and you'll be all set and can share studs all the way down the wall if the studs are 16-inch on-center. If they are not, no problem, just use the included drywall anchors. Wall Control Pegboard will mount to any flat surface, but if attachment is not directly into wall studs or secure drywall, we recommended that you consult with your local hardware representative for proper fastener selection as your application might call for hardware that is not included with the pegboard. For more information and some helpful how-to videos, please refer to our Installation Page.

can i use my pegboard hangers on wall control pegboard?

Peg Hooks On Wall Control Metal Pegboard

Yes. Most of our panels are offered in a "combo" style which will accommodate standard 1/4-inch diameter traditional pegboard style hooks as well as our patented slotted pegboard "double offset" style hooks and brackets. Unlike traditional pegboard the openings in our steel panels will not fray or elongate over time.

Can I Use Wall Control Where It Might Get Wet?

Outdoor Pegboard

The Wall Control Pegboard features a baked-on powder coat finish that resists rust when exposed to moisture. Unlike traditional pegboard, it will not "swell" or "warp" due to humidity or moisture so it is ideal for garages, workshops, laundry rooms, barns and boat houses.

can wall control pegboard be used for more than hand tools in the garage?

Kitchen Pegboard

Absolutely! Wall Control Pegboard was designed to be both versatile and attractive. It is suitable for use anywhere that wall storage, display or organization is required; laundry rooms, play rooms, kitchens, sewing rooms, hobby rooms, attics, closets, offices, retail stores and warehouses. Please refer to our social media accounts to see what creative ideas people have come up with to use their Wall Control for and hopefully come up with some yourself!

Mounting Hardware Included Doesn't Work For My Application, What Now?

We apologize the included hardware will not work with your installation. Feel free to use any mounting hardware you need to mount into your application safely. The screws and anchors are only provided as a convenience if they happen to work (most pegboard companies provide no mounting hardware for this very reason, as it is tough to guess what substrate each and every customer would be going into (straight into studs, drywall of varying thicknesses, cement, concrete block basement walls, plaster, steel studs, etc.). If you cannot use them, feel free to discard of them or save them and perhaps use them on a future project where they could be helpful.

How Much Weight Can My Pegboard Support?

Heavy Duty Pegboard

Specific weight capacities depend upon quality of installation, substrate installed into, bracket or hook selection, weight distribution, actual load centers, and a whole host of other variables which make advertising specific and idealistic laboratory load ratings potentially misleading (be cautious of any brand that does this because this sort of advertising can be dangerous). That being said, our panels and brackets can hold a lot of weight when properly installed and used correctly. We offer panels, brackets, and shelves rigid and strong enough to support most heavy common storage items such as bicycles, ladders, sledge hammers and ironing boards just to name a few common applications. If you have a specific application that concerns you, contact us at sales@wallcontrol.com or on our Contact Us page and we will be glad to assist you.

why is wall control pegboard superior to traditional pegboard?

Durability.
Our panel is made from 20 gauge steel. It has a scratch resistant baked-on powder coat finish. Unlike traditional pegboard, Wall Control Pegboard is moisture resistant and will not swell or warp and the openings in the face of the panel will not fray or enlarge from repeated use.
Versatility.
A wide assortment of hooks, brackets, shelves and bins are available for this system. All of the hooks, brackets and shelves are steel, powder coated components. These components all move easily from slot to slot allowing your system to change as your storage needs change. With our "Combo" panels standard traditional pegboard style hooks may be used along with our patented Wall Control "double offset" style accessories. 
Stability. 
The slot face design and stabilizing tabs on larger brackets secure your stored items better than traditional "round hole" design hooks and brackets. In addition, the "double offset" design on all our components dramatically reduces the possibility of unintentional hook disengagement when the stored item is removed. Don't you just hate when the hook comes out with the tool?
Attractive Appearance. 
Wall Control Pegboards' powder coated or galvanized finishes are not just durable, but they are also highly attractive. Wall Control peg boards are available in (10) different color choices, Wall Control slotted pegboard accessories are available in (4) different color choices. Create a custom looking workspace by mixing and matching panel and accessory colors. Wall Control panels and attachments easily wipe clean with a damp rag so they keep their "new" appearance for years.
Ease of Installation.
The 3/4-inch flange on the Wall Control Pegboard eliminates the need for any supporting framework and the mounting hole positions align with standard 16-inch stud centers. The modular design of the standard 16-inch x 32-inch panels make it convenient to handle. So in just a matter of minutes your new Wall Control Pegboard is installed and ready for use.

Peg Hooks On Wall Control Metal Pegboard

Wall Control Metal Pegboard Panels are designed to universally work with 1/4" peg hooks. However, not all peg hooks are created equal. Peg hooks vary from manufacturer to manufacturer and hook to hook, therefore it is difficult to claim that all peg hooks work on our panels without physically testing them ourselves. 1/8" peg hooks do not work well with Wall Control Metal Pegboard. After experimenting with different brands of peg hooks, we have found that 1/4" peg hooks from the following brands work better with Wall Control Metal Pegboards than hooks from other brands we've experimented with. Disclaimer, at the end of the day these are still just round pegs in pegboard which is why we recommend our own, more secure, slotted hooks and accessories but we do understand sometimes round pegs are simply a better fit either based on budget or application:

Uline
Everbilt
Presa


In the process we also found that 1/4" peg hooks from the following brands are NOT good to use with Wall Control Metal Pegboard:

Neiko

Please feel free to contact us if you have found other brands that either work or do not work with our pegboard.
