History back to top
This design came about when I was asked to make one but could not find any precedent.
A simple project became a nightmare when I could not find a reliable hole size guide.
So after several weeks of research, hundreds of charts, numerous discussions, near countless measurements, many sketches, & a few prototypes later, this holder model was finally created.
Designed to be sturdy, visually appealing, & practical yet will stand the test of time.
This design has only the more commonly used sizes.
The 16mm size came about since everyone seemed to have a favorite hook larger than 9mm.
Some manufacturers don't correctly size & mark the hooks.
As a result some may be marked differently than may be measured!
