If you’re mounting the pegboard to organize your garage, the Wall Control galvanized steel metal pegboard comes with two panels and may be an ideal option for you.

Cons

  • Standard hooks lean forward: “Normal” pegboard has an inherent thickness to it (generally 1/4″). This system is has much less thickness, probably closer to 1/32″. So using hooks & accessories made for old fashioned pegboard systems that were built for that 1/4″ thickness leaves you with accessories that tend to lean forward as they hold an item. This is easily remedied by buying Wall Control vertical slat style accessories although they will be a bit more expensive. You can buy regular hooks and accessories but they may lean forward a slight bit. 
  • The screws included aren’t enough
