For good hose hook storage, you want to know load capacity, hook depth, and weather resistance:
the load capacity, because hoses get very heavy, especially with water in them
the hook depth, because a rolled up hose gets big
the hook’s weather resistance, so you get one that doesn’t rust.

These hooks are stainless steel, so they do not rust.
