The Best Ladder Hooks

The Best Art of Storage/Delta Ladder Hook

One thing I’ve found about ladder hooks is that a lot of them have quality issues with the rubber or plastic coating. The hooks themselves are usually strong enough. It’s just that the coating comes off, which leaves a cheap feeling all around.

So I specifically set out to find a ladder hook with a sturdy rubber coating that lasts.

In fact, my rubber ladder hook should have:

  • a thick, sturdy rubber coating
  • a wide hook mouth
  • a decent load capacity
  • a reputation for holding up through time and weather
The Art of Storage UH2000 Hook has excellent load distribution properties.

The UH2000 is the hook that meets these criteria.

My favorite ladder hook is the Art of Storage UH2000 Utility Hook. This is the hook with really wide mouth and thick rubber coating that holds a ladder up to 50 lb.

When a hook is too weak for the job, you need to use two hooks to balance the load. The UH2000 is super-wide, which adds to its strength. You need only one hook when you might need two of a narrower design.

The UH2000 is 8 inches wide, which distributes the load over a much wider distance than a regularly-sized hook. The width distributes the load, making this hook stronger than most.

How to Buy the Art of Storage UH2000 Utility Hook

The Art of Storage is also called “Delta,” so if you see that name, it’s the same hook.

NOTICE! You must use the Proslat Slatwall storage system to use these hooks. Learn everything you need to know about the Proslat Garage Wall storage system in our article: What Can I Store On a Proslat Wall System? (with Pictures)

If you already have the Proslat wall storage system, you know that you can hang your ladder on this wall storage system. The only question is, which of the Proslat hooks is best for hanging a ladder?

Proslat 13010 hooks
The Proslat 13010 8 in. “Double Hooks” come in packs of three.

Each Proslat 8-inch Double Hook is made from heavy duty steel and is wrapped in a durable rubber coating. It has a wide surface for resting the ladder, and a great reputation for standing up over time.

The Proslat Double Hook has a 50 lb. load capacity.  Two hooks will carry 100 lb. Three will carry 150 lb.

The “Double Hook” is sold in packs of three.

This is the hook to use when storing your ladder on the Proslat slatwall system.

I was unable to find a pic of the double hook carrying a ladder. But you can see here how a sturdy bike hangs easily on the Proslat organization wall storage system.

How to Buy the Proslat 8-Inch Double Hook 3-Pack

Remember that this hook design requires that you use the Proslat wall organization system. Once you have that, it’s really easy to move hooks anywhere you want on the wall. After installation, you never have to pull out the drill to intall hooks. They just lock in place wherever you put them.

Again, not a ladder, but this is a good example of how tools hang on the Proslat wall system.

NOTICE! You must use the Gladiator GearTrack or GearWall storage systems to use these hooks! Learn everything you need to know about the Gladiator Garage Wall storage system in our article: The Best Garage Slatwall Storage System

 

Gladiator GearTrack
The Gladiator storage system comes in wall panels and tracks. This is a set of GearTrack channels. Once installed, you just move the lockable hooks anywhere you want on the channel.
Gladiator Wall Panel
This is the Gladiator Wall Panel. It’s the same concept as the track. The ridges are channels where the hooks lock into place. Snap the hook off, move it, and snap it to a new place. No drills or screwdrivers required.

I love the Gladiator slatwall tracks and wall panels because you can store your garage stuff anywhere without pulling out a screwdriver or drill. Four of their hooks are excellent for ladder storage. It doesn’t matter if you use the GearTrack channel or the full size GearWall.

Gladiator offers four hooks that work great for storing ladders. They all hve meaty surface areas, good capacity, and rubber coating.

The Gladiator Utility Hook, Dual Hook, and the Big Hook all carry 50 lb. The Gladiator Deep Hook carries 30 lb.

Remember, the Gladiator is a slatwall garage organization system like the Proslat. This means you need Gladiator GearTrack or GearWall to use the Gladiator hooks for ladder storage. Then you can move the Gladiator hooks anywhere along the channels using a simple release and lock mechanism.

You Need the Track as Well as the Hook

If you’re just getting started with Gladiator, get

  • a package of GearTracks
