Wall space is a premium in my shop because of the multiple uses of the space. When I started thinking about making clamps I knew I would need a place to store them. I devised a way to put a clamp rack in front of my scrap stick area and hinge it so that it could be pulled up to the ceiling when I didn’t need to access my longer clamps. It’s raised with two pullies with the rope held taught with an old window sash weight. A clip hooks onto a screw eye at the bottom of the rack, enabling me to unhook the rope to let the rack hang for use. The rack is held to the ceiling by a hinged hook which mush be pushed back to lower the rack. It’s the best system I could devise even though I know it’s not perfect. Eh, it works for me.
