What is a PEGITZ?

PEGITZ: The Pegboard/Peg Locks

Do you use pegboards in your vacuum or floorcare store? Do the hooks fall out when customers are looking for an item or you are restocking? Are you tired of that? You can fix it with Pegitz!

Pegitz is an innovative new solution to an old problem. Pegitz are grommet-like adapters which insert into a pegboard hole; a peg is then inserted into the Pegitz, thereby properly securing the peg such that it does not accidentally come out during usage. Pegitz comes in two sizes for 1/8" and 1/4" pegs, fitting 1/4" and 9/32" holes.

A Pegitz pegboard/peg lock:

  • Firmly secures the peg in the pegboard hole.
  • Is removable and reusable.
  • Comes in 2 sizes for 1/8" pegs and 1/4" pegs.
  • Comes in multiple colors for color-coding items.
  • Is a better solution than existing "straps" on the market.
  • Completes the pegboard system for a total solution.

Easy to use! Follow these directions:

  1. Insert Pegitz part into pegboard hole with slot positioned vertically.
  2. ​Insert top of hook firmly into hole all the way by pushing with thumb.
  3. ​Pull down on hook while pushing in to lock into place
  4. ​To remove, pull out hook and remove Pegitz part.

Pegitz parts are designed primarily for wood and plastic pegboards. While they will improve the holding of pegs/hooks in metal pegboards, they are not ideal for this usage if the metal pegboards are thin (meaning thinner than a wood pegboard).

If you would like to see Pegitz parts compatible with metal pegboards available, please visit www.pegitz.com and select the "Contact" tab to provide this request, as it is a topic currently under evaluation.

Patent Pending: Serial No. 62/163,495
