    Rack Storage Suggestions

    I posted a question in the 1up thread about this but after another search thought it was worthy of it's own thread for this and other racks. I am interested in how best to store my receiver rack on the wall of my garage but any ideas will be appreciated. Thanks!

    I am at the same point. Thinking of hanging it from the garage ceiling. Saw one of those bike lifts which has me thinking of putting something like that together. Then I don't have to physically pick it up to the ceiling. ESP if I eventually get the 4 bike extension.

    Can't leave the rack on wife's car constantly. So easy way to store it is needed.

    Btw, mine is the Thule T2.

    Rack Storage Suggestions

    Check out the Gladiator wall rack system. Sears carries it, so does my local Lowes.

    They mount flat on your wall, and use various Gladiator attachments, including various hooks and such. My Yakima hitch rack fits perfectly, cradled by the hook.

    I'll post a pic when I get home.

    I used to own a shop with a lot of receiver hitch stuff. We had a bunch of square tubing welded to a post with all of the pintle hooks and hitches slid in.
    I'm looking to make something similar like a plate that bolts to two wall studs with a receiver in the middle to hold my T-2.
