Hooks are a versatile and essential piece of hardware for any educational institution. We carry a wide selection of hooks to meet your needs, from simple locker hooks and clothes hooks, backpack hooks, to those that connect shower curtains to shower rods.
In order to choose the correct hook, you first need to address where the hook will be used. The area of use helps decide what material hook to choose, what style of mounting you will need, and also what color or finish for the hook.
When purchasing a locker hook, for example, you may want a single prong locker hook. You can also consider a double prong locker hook to give your students two hooks: one for a jacket or sweatshirt and the other for their backpack or bag. At Shiffler, we carry several notable locker hook brands, including Hallowell, Republic, and Tennsco.
If you are in the market for a bathroom stall hook, we also offer several hook and bumper and even robe hooks. Bobrick and ASI are top brands in the bathroom accessories market and have several designs of bathroom hooks available via Shiffler.
