About 2 weeks ago I was so fed up with tripping over various styles of clamps and although I have a few types of clamps I don’t have enough if I have 15…

So because my workshop is on the basement I have walls off nothing but concrete walls so before I could figure out what storage method to use for the actual clamps I needed to build a basic panel and mount it to the the wall, and that’s when I found a Ramset basic model ( you hit it with a hammer)my brother in law uses and it’s great I mounted a 60”sq panel consisting of 3/4” ply and some Masonite all mounted to the wall using 2×4s and screws and the Ramset fasteners …

I made the panel larger than I need but I expect my clamp collection to expand and I might also hang a few other things on it to ..

Now I can start sorting out my clamps… Next project F clamp holders..

I like your idea and looks like it will be able to handle a large amount of weight.

I have a similar issue except in my garage. Most of my walls are cinder block walls. Just like you i was tired of not being able to use my walls for storage, so I tapcon’d 2×4’s on a normal stud wall spacing. Turned the 2×4’s so the 3.5” was flat against the wall.

Have your say...
