An old rake keeps garden tools organized.

When I became disgusted with the quality of tool hangers at local hardware stores, I poked around my storage shed for a sturdy substitute.
I found an old rake with a broken handle. I cut off the handle, turned the rake upside down, and nailed it in place on my garage wall with the tines facing outward. I now hang large tools with D-shaped handles from it, as well as smaller tools such as trowels and hand weeders. I have four tools hanging from my invention, and I am searching for more broken rakes. My garage is a neater place, and I can find my tools at a glance.
