Get all of your equipment ready, as shown in the photo below.
Using the large pliers, bend the fork handle inwards into a semicircular shape. Depending on what the fork is made of, you may need to apply some pressure but don’t worry, as the fork won’t break.
Using the small pliers, bend the prongs of the fork downwards so that the remaining upright prongs display the “Hang Loose”, “Victory” or similar hand signals.
Using the metal drill, drill a small hole in the middle of the fork’s “palm”.
The first hook is then ready to be fixed to the wall or cupboard. Use the carpenter pen to mark the location of the drill hole, drill a hole in the wall and fix your DIY hook onto the wall using a screw.
