    How I hang my rulers

    I have a idea I went to Ikea and found a kitchen pot rack and bought the S hooks. I put the racks on the wall and hang the rulers on the S hook by putting the ruler on the hook by the hole on the top of it. Good way to hang your rulers and be able to see what you have!!!!!

    Go to Ikea abd check under towel racks and then go to hooks!!!!!

    Worth the $$$$$

    Another idea is using pegboard. You can hang all sorts of stuff on a pegboard. You can paint it to match you room too.

    ....or use the s hook idea, but put up either curtain rod w/brackets or towel rack if space is limited and the things hang on the pole

    Thank you. I have been trying to figure out how to hang my rulers. Instead of putting them in my drewers/or any where else I can think to put them.

    Yes I think it is a great idea because you can see all the rulers you have and move over with ease. Also your rulers do not bend

    I had an old kitchen utensil rack with "s" hooks. Works great. Think I paid a $1.00 at Dollar Tree. Fits more than one ruler on each hook.

    That is how I hang my pots and pans. I have been debating handing a nice curtain rod on the wall and doing the same thing,

    I use the small command hooks that hinge so they work really well.

    I hope this thread helps you because they must be pretty uncomfortable in your drawers.

    I hang mine on a multi tiered skirt hanger. I guess I should say "hangers" because I have more rulers than one person needs! I think there are 8 clips on each hanger. http://www.amazon.com/Whitmor-6021-1...5778561&sr=1-6

    beware of those 3m command hooks...I stopped buying/using them when two pics I had hanging from them dropped to floor one nite and scared the "you know what" out of me........So I guess they sort of dry out after awhile. The pics hanging from them fitted the recommended weight limit posted on the packs....so just a heads up to all about those little wonder hooks......

    I hang mine on a screw on the wall. I forget I have some command hangers and should use them. I get tired of patching the holes when I don't need them. For the ones that don't have holes, I use a ruler rack. I do have to move them to move them to get to the one I want to use.

    Can you show a picture of your rulers hung up? I am trying to decide if I want to do peg board or not. This sounds like it might work better since I was going to put the peg board above my cutting/pressing station.

    Hanging rulers

    I use an old belt hanger that's circular - it works great because the hook on the top can do a 360!

    They are very easy to drill a hole in.

    I have peg board in my sewing room with all my rulers and some miscellaneous other stuff hanging on it. I also have one by the ironing board with the ham, seam roll, sleeve board and some smaller stuff on it.
