A simple hook for reliably mounting things to Ikea Skadis peg boards with M2.5 screws.
This is a simple hook for mounting things to Skadis pegboards. These hooks use M2.5 screws, which can screw into M2.5 heat-set inserts. The screws provide a very reliable interface which can take a decent amount of weight and can allow for easy rearrangement without having to worry about snapping off plastic protrusions.
The entire hook and the M2.5 screw fit through the Skadis peg board slots with just enough clearance to provide a solid hooking surface for the back side. I had originally planned to use more ubuqituous M3 screws but having a screw head smaller than 5mm was a critical requirement, which was difficult to find with M3 screws. M2.5 screws worked perfectly though.
Erik Hess posted an awesome render on the Adafruit Discord of his workbench with his skadis designs created in Fusion 360. Awesome work!
