How to Install a Peg Board?

A peg board which is nothing but hardboard which has been drilled to give a perforated look. A peg board is used to keep machinery in an organized manner. The holes drilled in are meant to attach hooks or pegs on which many items can be hung. Pegboard is the name of a brand actually; the technical term for such board is perforated board. Following are the steps from Otota.co to install a pegboard by you discussed in detail.

1. Leave enough space behind the board

While you are mounting the perforated board, you need to pay attention to some details like there should be enough gap between the board and the surface on which you plan to hang it as the hooks on which you tend to hang your tools would need some space as they go to the back of the board.

2. Mark up the wall studs for strip support

This measure has no more significance than the fact that the strips which will support the board need to be attached firmly to the wall unit and to do that you need to mark up the studs and a stud sensor will help you to find the studs in the wall. Thus you do not need to hammer away the whole wall to locate the wall studs.

3. Provide a frame for back support of the pegboard

After you have marked the studs then mount a back support on the wall with two horizontal strips of wood and two vertical strips to form a rectangular frame and two vertical strips in between to serve as a support. Once this frame is mounted your work is almost done. Now all you need to do is mount the pegboard.

4. Size up you board

Once your frame is mounted then you need to cut your perforated board according to the size of the frame. Use a jigsaw or a table saw to cut the board out according to the set measurements. Do not try to cut the board with a blade or knife you might get hurt like that.

5. Mount your board on the frame

Once you have the board ready as per the measurements, attach the board on the framework with screws. You can use a drill to affix the screw in so that you board is attached firmly to the frame.

6. Arrangement

Now your perforated board is ready to use and you can arrange the hooks as per your liking. In case you feel that you might misplace the tools on board you can draw the outlines of the tools around their specific hooks so everything goes up on the right place.

The materials used for installing a perforated board are a pegboard, stud sensor, pencil, ruler, wooden strips, nails and screws, screw drills, table saw or jigsaw, and pegs or hooks. While undertaking such installation by yourself you need to be focused and careful enough so that you do not end up hurting yourself.
