Clamps, we seem to never have enough. That said where do we put them all? Like many others I do not have wall space or floor-space available for a large rack to store them all in one place at one time. I have various storage places for my other longer clamps but these 4 small ones just got left on the bench. All I needed was space for these clamps, nothing fancy just hold them in place and be available when needed. Scrounging around I saw some scrap PVC that fit the bill and in a few minutes had my rack made. Four days later the paint was dry and I reassembled and installed. This works well and takes advantage of a small open space that was unused. Sometimes you just have to be creative and find a spot. While the open hole did not give me the option of expanding my small clamp selection I figure when the time comes and I get more I will just have to figure it out then. Another project…

Very clever solution and saves space on work bench – still very accessible.

Great idea … thanks for sharing! The little six inch guys would fit nicely under my tool cabinet as well … currently they reside hidden behind the drill press and are a pain to get to …

It’s great when everything has it’s own parking space! Nice work!
