So I am trying to figure out a way to keep my fishing rods from falling out of the rack. There are Holes drilled for the bottom of the rod on the bottom shelf but for the top self im not sure if I should drill holes and cut an opening or use something else. I have seen plastic clips and different designs for the upper part of the rod to stay in place put im looking for an easy, well working design. . Any suggestions?

holes with slots and a piece of inner tube to line the hole..slice the tube at the opening and you have a grommet to protect the rod and a rubber “gate” to hold in place…or rubber washers mounted on top of the hole slice for access

-- as technology progresses, wood workers seem to regress...all my power tools and my favorite is a chisel and a hand plane

Hi:

I have a Friend who is a Competitive Bass Fisherman. (BASS) He also needed a Rack to hold his Rods. He also said it would be ideal if he could leave it at home or Lay it in the bed of his BIG Shiny Red Truck. ...LOL…

I found a design on the www that he liked (Picture Below) and extended it to 10 Rods. His Wife made a Really Nice Slide on Vinyl Cover for them (2) when it was in the truck or outdoors anywhere.

The other Picture is the same type of “Holder” but the bottom cutout board is hire up and it’s 2 Sided. You could easily do 2 sides with the other one also. If it got to Heavy, Coasters could also be easily added.

With Johns board the Lower “Holder” board held them in tighter. They will NOT Fall Out!

I lined (Glue In) all of the Half Circle Top Cutouts with Velcro Tape extended so he could “Lock” them in place when travelling. You could just use Felt if you wanted to. As they will stay in place as they are.

Very Easy Straightforward Build. I used Regular Grade Pine, Minwax “Sedonna Red” Stain and 3 Coats of Satin, Water Based Minwax Poly.

I’m also an Avid Bass Fisherman especially Largemouth in the Lily Pads with a Top Water Popper. Usually a “Hula Popper, Jitterbug or Lives’ New Frog.

Hope It Helps!

TIGHT LINES!!

I cut half circles and then ran thin-shanked screws through the spring clip of wooden clothespins on my garage rack.

If you’re trying to make it pretty as a display piece, probably not the way to go, but it’s uber functional and they’re locked in there very securely. No bouncing out if you make it portable to the truck or boat. I made a separate one for the boat that’s horizontal with the rods sexured at both ends with clothespins. It sits on the rear deck in front of the outboard and pins into the studs for the ski tower.

Aside from the fact that he’s talking about Upright Racks, I’ll Hang some ”Above Racks” below. The Vast Majority Of Houses in CANADA have full, 8’ High, Basement Ceilings.

HOWEVER! ....For those of US that are willing to HELP out Anyone, Anyway WE can, this might be ANOTHER TOTAL WASTE OF OUR TIME!

I’m getting to the point were if it’s not a Veteran Asking For Help. SCREW IT!! That’s NOT the way it should be.

WHY? ...Because I put a fair amount of time and effort into whatever I Post and this is The Fourth time in One Month this has (APPARENTLY) happened.

This is Pshi97’s Second Blog started 4 Days ago, the same day he made his ONLY Comment and the Last Day He was on Site.

29 Days ago he Posted his Only Other Blog. SAME as this one Titled “Final Project” whatever that means.

Will we see any other Replies From Him? Probably Not. Pshi97 …. I Hope You Prove Me Wrong!!
