Description:

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

[0001] The present invention is related to a structure in which tools are placed, and more particularly to a hanging board structure for collectively storing tools.

[0002] Conventionally, various tools are placed in a tool kit or a drawer of a tool cabinet. Alternatively, a tool hanging rack can be used to collectively store the tools. The tool hanging rack includes a board body having multiple perforations and hanging hooks. One end of each hanging hook is inserted into one of the perforations. A tool is hung on the other end of the hanging hook. Several such board bodies can be hung on a wall face side by side.

[0003] In the case that the tools are received in the drawer of a tool cabinet, the various tools are often interlaced with each other after many times of drawing/pushing of the drawer. Therefore, a user needs to seek and find out the necessary tool from the randomly placed tools. Moreover, after found, the user must laboriously pull the tool apart from the other tools. Also, the randomly interlaced tools lead to a poor appearance.

[0004] In the case that the tools are hung on the hanging rack, the above trouble can be avoided. However, in case there are a number of tools, a tool hanging board with considerably large area will be necessary for hanging the tools thereon. The large tool hanging board will occupy a large area of the wall face. Moreover, the tools are scattered over the tool hanging board so that it is hard for the user to manage and take/place the tools.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

[0005] It is therefore a primary object of the present invention to provide a hanging board structure for collectively storing tools and saving room.

[0006] It is a further object of the present invention to provide the above hanging board structure for collectively storing tools, which enables a user to easily manage and conveniently take/place the tools.

[0007] According to the above objects, the hanging board structure for collectively storing tools of the present invention includes at least one tool hanging board, at least one hanging hook and a cabinet body.

[0008] The present invention can be best understood through the following description and accompanying drawings wherein:

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS

[0009] FIG. 1 is a front view of the hanging board structure for collectively storing tool of the present invention; and

[0010] FIG. 2 is a perspective view of the hanging board structure for collectively storing tool, showing the use thereof.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS

[0011] Please refer to FIGS. 1 and 2. The hanging board structure 1 for collectively storing tools of the present invention includes at least one tool hanging board 12, at least one hanging hook 14 and a cabinet body 16.

[0012] The tool hanging board 12 is a board body having predetermined length and width and formed with several perforations 22 at intervals.

[0013] One end of the hanging hook 14 is inserted in the perforation 22 of the tool hanging board 12. A tool can be hung on the other end of the hanging hook 14.

[0014] The cabinet body 16 is a rectangular body composed of an upper, a lower, a front and a rear panels which define an interior space. The left and right sides of the cabinet body 16 are formed with openings. The inner faces of the upper and lower panels are respectively formed with two corresponding slide sections 62. Two edges of the tool hanging board 12 are respectively inlaid in the slide sections 62, whereby the tool hanging board 12 can be reciprocally moved out of or into the cabinet body 16 from left and right sides thereof.

[0015] The present invention is characterized in that:

[0016] 1. Multiple tool hanging boards 12 are arranged in the cabinet body 16 and reciprocally movable out of or into the cabinet body 16 from left and right sides thereof. Therefore, many tools can be hung on the tool hanging boards 12 to save room.

[0017] 2. Multiple tool hanging boards 12 are collectively arranged in the cabinet body 16 so that various tools can be well collectively stored in the cabinet body 16 without scattering around.

[0018] In another embodiment, the cabinet body 16 includes two front panels. One side of each front panel is hinged on the cabinet body, whereby the front panels can be swung and opened. Accordingly, the cabinet body 16 has a front opening for a user to check and take out the tool. Furthermore, the rear panel or all panels of the cabinet body 16 are formed with perforations 22′ at intervals for increasing the number of tools stored in the cabinet body 16.

[0019] Alternatively, in accordance with the configuration of the site where the cabinet body 16 is placed, one of the left and right sides of the cabinet body 16 has an opening. This can also achieve the same object of the present invention.

[0020] A handle (not shown) can be provided on an outer edge of the tool hanging board 12 for easily pushing/pulling the tool hanging board 12.

[0021] The above embodiments are only used to illustrate the present invention, not intended to limit the scope thereof. Many modifications of the above embodiments can be made without departing from the spirit of the present invention.
