DIY ceiling mounted rod rack

Recommended Posts

My rod storage system consisted of laying the rods horizontally on shelf brackets but it was clumsy and took up 7 linear feet of shelf space. Went to Home Depot today and found a 16-inch wall mount strip (Everbilt SKU 470774) with pivoting hooks and hardware for $6.95. They can be daisy-chained together. Plastic strips with steel hooks and includes screws with wall anchors if you're mounting them on drywall and not through the studs. Got eight of them and installed them on the ceiling. Hooks are installed in every other slot so there's room to maneuver the rods in and out (I can't stand it when they're too close together and the rods tangle with each other). Not bad for a relatively cheap and easy solution. For more storage without adding hooks you can put two rods facing opposite directions on each hook pair. This increases the "tangle factor" slightly but it's not too bad. I still prefer one rod per hook pair for simplicity and elbow room. Eight strips (four at butt, four at tip) with this spacing stores 11 combos.

 

I proudly show my wife the install thinking she'll say "that looks great" but she says "Why do you need so many of them?" :laugh7:

Pretty clever. There's a lot of cool organizational gadgets out there.
