A hanger assembly includes a one-piece sheet metal bracket with a channel-shaped flange for hooking over the upper edge of the side wall of an associated cabinet. The bracket has a forwardly projecting, elongated channel formed therein and extending the length thereof with a plurality of holes therethrough for receiving the threaded ends of hook-like hanger members, which are fastened by nuts. The distal ends of the hooks have apertures therethrough. The hooks may be received through complementary openings in associated equipment, such as a creeper. Hanging articles are retained in place by a retaining rod having one end receivable through an aperture in one hook and having an eyelet at the other end for receiving the distal end of another hook. A padlock shackle may be received through the aperture in the other hook to look the retaining rod in place. Various numbers of hooks may be mounted on the bracket in a variety of spacings and arrangements.
