I'm hanging mugs from the hooks. Attaching them exactly as shown--aluminum molding over maple plywood. Should hold OK. Any bit of storage I can get, I'll take! Thanks for the advise!

If the shelf is made of fiberboard, screws don't hold very well in that and will tend to back out by themselves while traveling. If it is plywood, the wood will hold a screw better and solid wood is best. There is thread locker to make sure the screws stay in.

A hook that has 2 screws is better than one.

Command hooks are good for sticking on just about anything, but they have an adhesive strip that is too long for your use unless they make a really small one. They are available at lots of places (we got 'em at the Container Store) and come in brushed metal.
