Hi, my name is Chris Palmer. Today, I'm going to show you how to make toggle hangers for your hoses or clothes. This is a great way to hang your garden hoses or extension cords or anything that comes up in a coil. It's just a dowel with a piece of rope. The first thing you do to make this is find a piece of wood. It could be anything, it could be a piece of metal pipe, anything you can drill holes in. I happened to have some dowel here. I'm going to use this piece to make some new ones today. If you have a drill press, it's a great way; the drill press is a great way to make the holes in your dowel. If not, just use your hand held drill; maybe brace the dowel up against something so it doesn't roll out of your way. Try to drill right through the center to leave as much meat around the hole as possible to give it the most strength. Drill the hole slightly larger than the rope. Go ahead and drill two and we'll run both ends of the rope through the holes and tying at the other side. Alright, there's a couple holes; there's some rope. I like to melt the ends to keep it from fraying with the synthetic rope. I just got my, my grill lighter out and give it a little bit of a scorch. Run both of those lines through there and you can tie whatever kind of knot you like. If you make a bunch of toggles at different, with different length ropes, you can hang a series of cords off of one hook. It's a real space saver and it'll keep your garage more neat for you. Thanks for watching. I'm Chris Palmer. That's how you make toggle hangers.
