Display hooks are the most versatile accessory for shop display systems such as slat wall and pegboard units.
Display hooks allow stores to showcase items of all shapes and sizes in a manner of different hangsell formations. Ideal for stores that have large amounts of merchandise that are not best suited to traditional shelving, and stores that are looking to maximise their browsing space, display hooks are a welcome addition anywhere from large hardware warehouses to haberdashery market stalls. Hooks come in a variety of styles and sizes, including flipper hooks that can feature information such as product price. They are affordably priced so, whether you require a handful of shop display hooks for a small product range or are looking to make a bulk order for a national chain, get in touch with us now.
Display hooks are small metal pronged hooks that slide into the panels of shopfitting systems such as pegboard, slat wall or grid mesh to enable stores to hang products for display in a browser-friendly fashion. Sometimes called display prongs, they are a great space-saving mechanism for arranging packaged goods or small accessories that can easily get lost on standard shelving. The hooks are produced using chrome-plated wire which gives them a long-lasting quality and they come in a range of styles and sizes to suit products of varying weights – from gardening tools such as spades to small plastic packets of screws.
Hooks are fitted with different back plates to make them suitable for either slat, pegboard or mesh wire systems. For each type of system, they slide or clip in and out with ease and with no need for any screwing or hammering. They are kept firmly in place by the grooves or holes in the shelving panels and you can hang multiple items from each hook, which can then be slid easily off or back on by shoppers without disturbing store displays.
These display hooks for retail can be roughly broken down into four categories:
Slat wall hooks
These hooks and prongs are designed for slat wall fixtures and fittings such as wall-mounted panels of free-standing gondola units. Slat wall prongs are distinguishable by their solid rectangular back plate with a curved lip at the top that enables them to slide into the metal grooves on slat wall panels. These hooks come in different lengths and are available as standard hooks, heavy duty hooks for larger and bulkier items, and speciality picture hooks that hand individual pictures, frames, mirrors or clocks.
Pegboard hooks in Australia are very popular with modern retail stores of all kinds. These display prongs differ from the slat wall accessories in that, instead of a solid metal back panel for attachment, they have two metal prongs 25.4mm apart which fit into the perforated holes on pegboard systems. They are available in standard, heavy duty and flat metal steel models, as well as loop hook models that prevent packeted items from swinging around on display.
Wire mesh hooks
Wire mesh hooks are designed for grid mesh wire display systems that can be seen in all types of store and are particularly popular with market stalls. The back attachment on grid mesh prongs and hooks has a clip-on feature, either as a solid plate or as two prongs, that allows it to clip over the top of the wire panel on the grid mesh unit. They come in different styles and sizes and are available in black or chrome silver.
Flipper scan hooks
Flipper scan hooks are special hooks designed with an additional clear plastic flipper section for the display of tags containing product price, barcode, or short description. They are available for slat wall, pegboard and wire mesh display systems, with an extra loop hook model available for pegboard.
One of the great things about display hooks of all descriptions is how easy they are to use. Thanks to the clever back plate design, they slide or clip in and out of display panels with no fuss at all and stay nicely in place so you won’t have to worry about displays becoming constantly dislodged. If you want to move the hooks, you can slide them along the panels or simply un-clip and then replace in the new desired position. No tools needed.
Displaying merchandise is also refreshingly straightforward. Products that have a strap or hanging mechanism (e.g. bags, necklaces, cables, etc.) can be simply draped over the hooks. Many packaged or packeted items can also be placed on the hooks if they have a hanging strip at the top of the packaging. This is usually either a cardboard or plastic section with a small hole that can be used to slide over the hooks. If products have a wider slit rather than a hole, they can be placed on loop hooks which will keep them more firmly in place.
Display hooks can be used for a wide assortment of merchandise, such as:
Pretty much any sort of retailer can make good use of display hooks as long as they have a retail system of shelving that can accommodate them. Examples of stores that are well-suited to using hooks include:
