Handy storage stuff

Looks like an interesting product line for hanging on smooth surfaces. Love their tag line............

STUGVIK series - IKEA

Assume one needs to shave the rat fur first?

While I have not seen the IKEA hooks I will only use good quality locking suction cup hooks such as these. Amazon.com - InterDesign Power Lock Suction Hooks, Combo of 6, Clear - Utility Hooks I am not recommending this particular brand as I have not seen nor used them. Some locking hooks are rather flimsy. They need to be sturdy and well made in order to stay up on the smooth fiberglass walls while in transit. I bought mine at OSH, Orchard Supply Hardware, in California. I use them to hold up small items such a fly swatter, butterfly net, whistles on lanyards. Sometimes they do fall in transit, but no harm is done. It beats putting a hole in the fiberglass. See my photo.

Probable have to cut out holes in the vinyl covering or the nice padded wall covering found on many of the brands of trailers as well, if you want to hang something on an outside wall rather than just use the hooks on the many smooth fiberglass interior walls

Thanks, Charlie. I've been looking for a suction cup TP holder, so I ordered it. Will report on quality after I've had a chance to use it. -- Anne

Bought these a few years ago and was surprised they did not fall off with all the bouncing around. Was so impressed we just bought some more.

I used both suction cup and Command Hooks for the first year I owned my trailer. After moving them around a couple of times, I found the best location for them. I then switched to Umbra Flip hooks. Permanent, but I really like that you can fold in the hooks & the are available in a number of finished & sizes.

We've been using the STUGVIK tp holder from IKEA for a year now, and it holds tight, even in transit. We also have a STUGVIK basket, towel bar, and individual hooks, all with strong suction cups, that we can stick anywhere on the fiberglass as needed.

These are great!

The suction cups on these items have a screw cap for tightening, instead of a lever like some others. They hold really well. I bought hooks, TP holder and towel bar. We had some seriously bouncy roads on a recent trip and no problems. As an added convenience, the towel bar length adjusts with a spring ball.

If you're used to Amazon, they do take a week to 10 days for delivery.

These are also nice to stick on the OUTSIDE of the trailer when camped to hang wet stuff on for drying. Particularly useful for dog towels.

Thanks! Actually I do spend a lot of time making boxes.....

Ikea also sells them online for less total cost than Amazon.

For something light, Velcro works quite well on the rat fur...
