I wanted to build something to hold my Festool rail so they don’t get damaged or bumped into. I did some looking on Festool’s user group (FOG) and found nothing that really meant my design needs. So I came up with this design that fits right between my wood rack and garage door. The basic design is really just a trough that keeps the rails in place and a capscrew to hold the rails using the supplied hole already on the guide rails. I had some left over cheap 3/4 ply I used to build my wood rack. A french cleat design was used to mount the hanger to my wall. I counterbored the back of the hanger support so the capscrew head did not protrude. I did not want the guide rail hole to wear so I added skrink tubing to the capscrew. Nothing special with joinery, just some simple biscuits and screws along the top.

Great idea for an unused spot in the shop! Might have to “borrow” this idea—-

(Rotated your pic, makes a little more sense now)
