Has anyone found pegboard hooks or some other storage solution for the Power Head and attachments? The double hooks I had laying around the garage aren't really getting the job done and they don't stock the power head and attachments at the local HD for me to try new ones before I buy some.

Since I have some bicycle hanging hooks hanging (hah!) around, I used a couple of them to hold my 15" string trimmer horizontally in my shed. I have a hook at the battery end and a hook at the trimmer end. I don't keep the battery in the trimmer because I also use the battery with the hedge trimmer so the battery usually just resides on a shelf next to the charger. Perhaps a similar arrangement, where you have the power part on one set of hooks, horizontally, and then each accessory on its own set of hooks horizontally. (Sort of "ladder" fashion.)

First pic: PH1400 on left, ST1500 center, pole saw (non-Ego) on right.  The two on the left are larger size, I think 2-1/2" wide, 3" deep; the pole saw one is smaller.

Ego attachments, these fastest solution I came up temporarily is a 24" piece of paracord; overhand knot to make a loop, and then a clove hitch around the end of the shaft.  NOTE: make sure you knot will hold, as you'll likely damage something if it falls.

Another benefit of the Universal Trimmer Attachments is the button attachment point doubles as a cap retainer, which is what is holding up all the rest of my attachments.

The ones I have on hand are either too narrow or too wide. I'll head to HD to see if they have some 2.5" in stock.

The panels are 4ft wide, there are 4 of the in the pic. Hooks are separate.
Big box stores and Amazon have them online.

I have a lot of it in my garage.

I took a "simple" approach to hooking up my EGO tools and power attachments.  I bought Mounts in Drywall hooks by Tornado from Home Depot.

  1. Drywall Only = support up to 20 lbs.
  2. Drywall & Wood Stud = support up to 40 lbs.
