Fastening items to main door - 5.0Classic

Suggestions on fastening to inside of door on left & right side. Will sheet metal screws hold just threaded in, or some other fastener recommended? I saw wire door rack with screws attached in prior post that I cannot find now. Also saw flashlites and bear spray attached. No mention of fasteners I could find.

We installed a shoe/slipper, miscellaneous holder on the door. 3 pairs across and 3 down with 3M command hooks. Scott

Us too. They've been on there since day one and have never come loose.

If you want a mechanical fastening, screws do work but be sure to make the pilot hole larger than you'd make it for wood.

Ron,

That looks like it works great!

Only thing is... I don't know if DW's flamingo slippers will fit. I might have to commission a custom built shoe/slipper holder with one row dedicated to flamingos.

Thanks all. I may just do the 3M hooks for now. Found the main picture that ( I had saved the picture) that started my question. But not the name of the folks that did this...

Really awesome ideas, but I guess those of us with the new screen door are SOL on this one! 😫😜

Yeppers, but we have the chance to make a storm door for fall and winter use, I already have the plastic at home ready to cut and attach, plus the new Americana refrigerator is working flawlessly.

I used pop rivets to secure this trash can to the door of our first generation 19' with great success. Trash Can
