Is there a decent multi-paddle hanger that you can buy off the shelf?

I'd like something sort of like the one at the bottom of this page but don't care how good it looks, and made of metal or plastic is fine.

Basically looking for that kind of functionality. Off the shelf - don't want to make something.

I just thought of something I had in the shed and search Home Depot and a few other sites but did not find anything similar. I don't remember where I got these but does anyone know?

Maybe they don't show up on the websites but I checked Lowes, Home Hardware, Home Depot and Lee Valley

I was going to suggest Dollarama, about 1200 locations vs about 200 for the Tree.

You can (almost) outfit a complete canoe trip (sans canoe) at Dollarama.

And don't restrict yourself to the hardware section as there are various types of hanging thingies in other parts of the store.

I like rubber coated u-hooks for hanging single paddles securely

Those u-hooks are a better idea since they will be easier on the paddles too. Here is what I have so far - and when hanging them I was looking closely at potential damage against the edge of the hanger. Lee Valley used to sell rubber coating for coating anything but I checked a few months ago and they don't seem to anymore.

While I was at the dollar store I also found a 3 hook hanger which you can see here - only issue is the tongs are just slightly too far apart for some paddles

I originally did it all with the cheap hangers from the dollar store, but since my wife was going to Home Depot anyway I had her pick up some of the u hooks. So here are my paddles hanging - some of the pictures show the old hangers and some show the new ones.

This is probably basically the same as others are suggesting, but why not just use a broom hanger something like the photos attached? They are widely available.

Many years ago I bought a pair of paddles hangers that are simply two (coated) parallel steel bars attached to a thick (maybe 1/8 inch) steel base. I can't remember where I got them, but I do remember that they were about $50 each. Very sturdy. I can get about 8 paddles on one but there is always that fear that they could all turn sideways and fall. I wish I had known to look at tool hangers. I see that you also have a nice one that will hold three paddles securely. But if you've got the space to hang them individually those coated u-hooks are pretty sweet for about 40 cents each. I have several in a handy spot in the garage for my favorite "high use" paddles so they are always easy to just grab and go. Glad you like them P16.
