Q: Have you tried Ikea's "Asker" kitchen wall storage system? I cannot, for the life of me, get the hooks to stay on that suspension rail! Anytime I touch one of the little pots or a utensil hanging from the hook, it all falls right out. I've searched up and down on the internet for others who've had the same problem, to no avail.

My instinct is to glue the hooks in place with an epoxy, but this defeats the purpose of the rails for me, since I'll never be able to change the number or placement of hooks. My kitchen has literally NO storage space (no, really, none whatsoever), so my only option is to hang stuff up. But it's not staying up!

Has anyone else had this problem? What solutions did you try? Did they work?
