Coat-Hook Fireplace Tool Holder

Martha Stewart Living, December 2009

Coat hooks take on a new role when mounted sideways next to your fireplace: They can hold your fireplace tools upright. Look for ones that match the handles.

    I am in agreement that people are entitled to their opinions, yet rudeness is not necessary. Constructive criticism is one thing, smart mouthed bully-type remarks are uncalled for. I agree with those who say "if you don't like it...go somewhere where you do like it". I think the comment section of many sites ends up being a place where rude, cruel people let off steam anonymously.

    katymac, people are entitled to their opinions

    I'm relatively new to this site, but I'm really surprised at how rude some of the comments are: this is a free site, isn't it? you don't have to visit if you don't like/apreciate the content - the comments that add to the tips are great; but there seems to be a lot of mean-spiritedness out there.

    Martha, I like the idea and it came at a very opportune time. I was just on the web looking for a new tool stand when this came in!

    I, like DeborahDel, am thinking there aren't many fresh (or good) ideas coming out of this newsletter. The hook should definitely be placed in the other direction but I don't think it would look good regardless.

    Am I the only one that thinks this could be useful? The stand my tools came with is so flimsy and with toddlers around, I think hanging the tools against the wall would be safer.

    Martha, your team of idea people are grasping at straws lately...one dumb idea after another. You need to get some fresh minds in your think tank. I'll offer my services if you can't find anyone else.

    This tip is, unfortunately, a dud for all the reasons stated. Martha's team is full of clever tips but this one should have hit "the cutting room floor".

  • shrn 20 Oct, 2010

    ...or the hook should of been hung the other way, so the tool rest inside the the long piece and not look like it's going to slide off.

  • anewthread 20 Oct, 2010

    ...or hang the coat-hook at more of an angle...45 degrees or so.

  • cphipps 20 Oct, 2010

    That is exactly what I was thinking, too.

  • lbuser 20 Oct, 2010

    Not one of my favorite tips. The tools that hang will stay but the others will slide right out. Maybe it just needs a different type of hook. Hmmm - well, I guess you can't like all the tips that are given.
