The Organizing Gadget You Need To Optimize Your Hat Storage

Are you an avid hat collector? If so, you're probably looking for new and inventive ways to store your collection. Tossing them in a drawer can flatten caps, placing unnecessary stress on the materials. You can purchase hanging shelves, but this takes up much-needed closet space. Luckily, you can gain plenty of hat storage with few compromises by simply using wall hooks. Since a baseball hat typically weighs between 3 and 4 ounces, you can easily store your caps on these removable hooks without worrying about them falling off your walls. 

If you're a renter, you'll love that these hooks won't damage sheetrock since there's no drilling required. The one caveat is that the adhesive can damage paint if not properly removed. However, there are plenty of ways to remove these hooks without ruining your walls, making this hack a must-have for anyone looking to show off their hat collection. This display is great for baseball caps, cowboy hats, fedoras, and more. You might need to alter the distance between hooks to accommodate larger hats, however, so always measure before securing these hooks in place. 

Attach adhesive hooks to your wall

In a space-saving TikTok video shared by @thehouseofsequins, we learn that the best way to store and organize your hats begins with installing adhesive hooks to your walls. You can purchase an 8-pack of these hooks on Amazon for $9.99 at the time of writing. Be sure to leave enough space between hooks so all your hats are equally displayed. If you don't want to attach these hooks to your walls, you can always put them on the side of a dresser, for example, but be mindful of possible damage to wood. Although the manufacturer for Comand Hooks states that you can safely use their adhesive products on wood with a stain or varnish, you might want to test these strips in an inconspicuous area before committing to numerous hooks in a highly visible location. 

If you decide you no longer want your wall hooks, be mindful that improper removal is one of the most common hook mistakes to avoid. These hooks don't have an extra strip of adhesive that you can grab and pull down, as with traditional Command Hooks, so the best way to remove these from your walls is to warm the area with your hairdryer and then run a length of dental floss behind each hook. Be mindful not to place these hooks on any wallpaper, as they most likely won't come off without damaging your walls.
