I had purchased one of those cheap metal angle racks (pic 6) several years ago and thought it would be fine, but it’s really just a piece of junk.
I was sick and tired of tripping over, and never being able to find the right clamp.
Looked at lots of inspiring racks here on LJ’s and came up with this.
After building this thing, it turns out it can hold all 114 of my clamps with just a little room for a couple more. Why would I need more???
Back Side holds K body clamps and pipe clamps
End Panel holds Spring clamps and C clamps
Front Inside holds all my other clamps (notice Pic#5 I alternated the direction the clamps faced. It allowed more clamps to fit into a smaller space.)
Door is double sided peg board, to hold straight edges, squares and other miscellaneous stuff.
There are two pieces of peg board. One on the inside and one on the outside of the door. They are mounted to a 2×2 spline that runs inside the door frame.
The door has its own caster for two reasons.
1- It keeps the rack from falling over when the door is opened.
2- It keeps the door from sagging
The casters are rated 200lb. ea but flat spot really easily. It’s not really a big deal but a little annoying.

CLAMP INVENTORY – turns out I have 114. I had no Idea!
