Five things to consider when installing backpack hooks for schools

School environments are a hive of activity with children running around and playing outside classrooms in the morning, at recess, lunch, and at the end of the day. While children are at school their backpacks hold their food, drinks, hats, jackets, and homework.

When selecting backpack hooks for schools, it's essential to consider both functionality and safety. Here are some key factors to look for:

Safety Features: Look for wall hooks with rounded or smooth edges to prevent any accidents or injuries, especially in a school environment filled with hundreds of children.

Sturdy Construction: Ensure that the wall hook is made from durable materials like metal or high-quality plastic. The wall hook should be able to support the weight of a heavy school backpack without bending or breaking.

Weight Capacity: For improved safety it’s a good idea to choose a wall hook with a higher weight limit than your school backpack's actual weight. Check to see the weight capacity of the wall hook to make sure it can safely hold a heavy school backpack.

Installation: Look for a wall hook that is easy to install and comes supplied with the mounting hardware. You will need to find a wall hook that best suits your wall type and installation preferences.

Size and Design: Consider the size of the wall hook and determine how far will it stick out from the wall? Also, it’s important to consider the design of the wall hook to ensure it complements your school environment.

Remember to measure the space where you plan to install the hook and consider the size and weight of the backpacks you'll be hanging. By paying attention to these factors, you can select a wall hook that is not only functional but also safe and suitable for your specific needs.

By considering the five factors mentioned above, you can select a backpack hook for schools that is functional, safe and durable. 

Snughooks are a great alternative to a standard protruding wall hook as they have a smooth finish with no sharp edges and a recessed hook design. Snughooks are an advance on existing backpack hooks for schools in that the risk of personal injury is greatly reduced due to having no protruding hooks.

Snughooks are safe, strong and durable. The sleek and compact design maximises space and the easy installation make it the ultimate backpack hook for schools.

"Good design speaks for itself and no part of the Snughook extends past the front face. Snughooks greatly reduce the hazards in many environments and look stylish and attractive." John Matthews - Inventor
