I purchased some coat hooks about a year ago and have only just around to installing them (decorating takes time haha). They are hung with keyhole slots on the back of them:
The problem I have is, I put a screw in the wall and hung the hook and got it attached fine. But if I put a heavy coat on the hook, and then lift the coat off, the coat can catch on the hook and lift the whole hook off the wall (such is the design of the keyhole slot).
Does anyone have any idea on how to prevent this from happening? I tried to put the screw in very close to the wall so it pulled on the metal plate as i pulled it down but it just bent the metal plate. I am currently using a countersunk screw, maybe there is a different screw head that would help with this situation?
