I'm going to break my neck one of these days


Does anyone have any easy ideas for me for storing gardening tools and things with handles? Shovels, hoe, rakes, brooms, I lean them in a corner of the garage and they fall all over and either I'm tripping over them or they fall into the doorway and I can't close the door. Mostly I hate the messy look.

One brother-in-law has a 2 x 4 flat on the wall with nail heads sticking out and he's drilled holes in all his handles to hang them. That is very neat, but would involve too much work for me, at least now.

I did think of putting 2 hooks in the wall, about 3' apart, then putting a bunge cord on them while hoping that would keep things from sliding all over the place.

Any ideas that aren't expensive or hard to do? Thanks.

If you use a few more nails, you don't need to drill holes in handles.
Hang them head up.

Here is a video showing how. I've always used 2x4 or 2x6 where the video is saying 1x3.

oso954,
So far I like this board and nail idea the best and as the video said, simple and only a few buck. I wonder why the guy in the video used drywall screws on the board, when he was attaching it to a stud in the wall? (instead of a nail) but I guess screws would be sturdier.

This will be an all day project for me. There's an existing shelf that will have to partially be removed but I have a new Milwaukee saw that I hope I can just saw the shelf in half and remove the brackets holding it up.

thanks

I use the Rubber maid Fast Track system.
http://www.rubbermaid.com/Category/P...geOrganization
With the right hooks I can hang 4 of any type tool on one hook, my power cords, ext. cords, even a bike if I had one.
It takes a whole 10 min. to install and the hooks can be moved just by lifting them up.
Home Depot sells it in the storage area where the wire shelves are.

amazing all the choices. When you've never had a garage before it's hard to know where to begin organizing.

Also thinking of things I can take upstairs to the big attic.

Most garage attic floors aren't very strong so limit the weight of stuff you put up there

I had a bunch of these on hand. Just screwed them into a 2x4.
Works great.

Actually, an upslant to the nails (or other hangers) helps keep the tools in place better than others that are either perfectly straight or on a down slant.

that makes sense. I'd be really annoyed if I got all those things on only to have my tools slide off. Nailing at a slight angle should be easy for me

I think I'll lay all my tools out on the floor and measure how long of a board I need, plus allow for a few future tools, then have H.D. cut the main board I have to buy.
