Power cords, air hoses and dust collector or vacuum hoses are necessities in most DIY or woodworking shops, but on the floor, they’re tripping hazards. And, while dust hoses can be mounted to the wall with hooks or brackets, power cords and air hoses tend to remain on the floor instead.
If you’d like to organize all of your hoses and power cords up and out of harm’s way, Rockler’s new Dust Right Cord and Hose Hook can wrangle them easily in one place.
Made of glass-filled nylon for strength and durability, it incorporates four support hooks: one large hook at the bottom for 2-1⁄2- or 4-in.-diameter dust hose, a medium-sized hook in the middle for air hoses and two smaller hooks for power cords or extension cords. Notches on the hooks allow for securing hoses and cords with rubber bands or bungee cords.
The hooks measure 16-in. long and project 5-1/2-in. out from the wall.
Multiple Cord and Hose Hooks typically will be required to run dust collection to all the tools in a shop. Individual hooks can be placed anywhere to allow the user to work without having to fight a tangle of hoses and cords, resulting in less wear-and-tear and a safer work environment.
The Dust Right Cord and Hose Hook can be permanently attached to a wall or stud with screws (not included) or hung from a nail or screw driven into an overhead support for mobile hose and cord management. It also can be attached to a workbench or table for cord or hose storage.
Dust Right Cord and Hose Hooks (item 58303) are priced at $14.99 each and can be purchased at Rockler.com or at Rockler Woodworking and Hardware stores nationwide, as well as through the Rockler print catalog.
