So... being a musician (and we're a little weird anyway) I bought these for my guitars. My only complaint is that there were only two packs in the store where I got them!

Other than a couple of the guitars with larger head-stocks being a bit snug these are excellent. I was going to build a guitar rack but saw these and gave them a try. I'm not disappointed!

They were easy to install and hold the weight of my prized possessions without a problem. An afternoon project turned into a great-looking 1/2 hour project.

I am using these in conjunction with the other Tornado hooks to hang my Tanaka string trimmer (and accessories) and I am extremely happy with how they are holding up.

Now unlike the other Tornado hooks, the U1000 has a permanently attached fastener, but that doesn't effect how it works or installs at all. The hook digs right into the dry wall with ease.

At an impressive 35 lbs (20 lbs for sheetrock only, 50 for stud only, or 35 for sheetrock and stud) the U hook is able to hold most anything you I can throw at it and with ease!

After installing about a half a dozen different brands and types of storage hooks, these are by far the best I have found thus far that do not require a special backboard or "system". Combined with Tornado's J and L hooks you can get your garage, shop, or shed organized like a pro.

Pros:
Exception quality, nothing even comes close to these.
Permanently attached fastener/hook combo makes for a tool-less installation.
Can hold a crazy amount of weight compared to a typical screw in hook, even when install in just drywall.
Made in the USA!

Cons:
NONE.

The hook seems solid and study, so no problem there. What you need to know is that this particular hook has a huge conical screw permanently attached to the back, almost like the spike on the old Kaiser's helmet. A full 1/2" wide with extremely coarse threads, it's not mounting hardware that you can just ignore, it's an integral part of the hood -- a single casting, I think. That is indeed useful for drywall, and if you plan to mount it in drywall, fine.

The item description online and the package instructions say it is fine for wood studs too, and I guess in theory you could wear out your wrist twisting that big bulbous thing into a bare stud, though I'm not sure it's a good idea to put a 1/2" thick screw into a 1.5" wide stud.... Total overkill when two #8 wood screws and a cordless driver would have the job done in 30 seconds. Except the spike would be in the way if you tried that. In my case I needed these for bare studs in my garage, so they were not useable.

For drywall these hooks would be great. I'm taking away two stars because the manufacturer is out of line claiming these are suitable for bare studs; they are not. Tornado makes similar hooks _without_ the drywall spike, so look for those instead.

Love these hooks! Purchased quite a few to organize our garage; we use them for hanging strollers, fishing pools, snow shovels, etc. Great product and VERY easy to use.

I purchased two packs of these hooks to hang shovels and other tools up in my barn. Be very careful when installing these hooks directly into wood 2x4s. I snapped the center screw off of the first two when installing them. I left the last two a half of a turn from snug and was able to install them without snapping the screw off. The screw portion just seems too weak to properly install into wood. It seems like it was designed for drywall, so considering looking elsewhere if installing directly into wood.

I used these as guitar hangers. They can hold acoustics or electrics. Make sure to mount them into a block of wood to compensate for the depth of the guitar. I loved the fact that you can screw them into drywall without having to find a stud. $16 for 4 or $40 for 4 guitar slings. Hmmmmm?

These things are deceptively big. Obviously you could tell this by looking at the specs (which I didn't do). They look really sturdy though, so I'm looking forward to mounting them in the future.

I was looking for some way to hang my daughters' Razor scooters up by the front door for when they go to school. They enter the front door and leave by the front door. The Razor scooters don't have a kick stand. So, I searched for options for the scooters. These work perfectly. They are easy to install and the width is perfect for the handles of the scooters. I will probably buy some more for other things in my house.
