Use 3 Ring Binder Hardware For Hanging Storage

contest winner icon

Old school or work 3 ring binders can be reused by removing the back plate and rings. Use pliers to remove the rivets and separate the back plate from the cover. Screw the plate and rings to a wall or the back of a closet or cabinet door. Mount the plate horizontally using a small level or as best you can by eye.

Then you can open the rings using the end tabs as if you were inserting paper. Do not over tighten the screws or it will be difficult to open the rings. You can then hang items like vacuum cleaner bags and belts, packages of batteries or hardware, small cords, etc. Close the rings and the items are secure and easy to see and find when you need them.
