   I am using the same system and it works wonderfully.  I bought my 40 
bins from Harbor Freight for  $7.99 last summer, of course that was just 
the bins no bolts/nuts like the one at Northern.  The hangers were however 
flimsy little plastic pieces that fell apart as soon as you put in more 
then 3 bolts or 5 nuts.  I had some scrap flat steel in the garage and 
welded up and a nice rack for them to hang one, the system works 
wonderfully.  I have a couple of bins for rusty bolts/nuts that still need 
to be cleaned and the rest are for either new or cleaned up bolts/nuts.  It 
does require wall space but the time saving in always being able to find 
the right size and not having to hunt it down in a box is worth the wall 
space (assuming you get in the habit of putting the stuff in the bins first).
