These are easy to make. Cut 6-inch lengths of 4-inch-diameter PVC pipe. You’ll need two pieces for each clamp holder. Drill a 1/4-inch hole in the side for lag bolt and drill a 1-1/2-inch hole with a Forstner bit directly across from the bolt hole. The larger hole allows you to get a socket extender in to rachet the lag bolt onto a mounting surface.

You can mount the clamp holders overhead as shown in the photo (I used 2-foot-long pieces of 2×4 nailed to my garage trusses). Or, if you’d rather mount the holders vertically, you could bolt them top and bottom on your clamp cart. Just make sure however you mount them that you have enough clearance to get clamps in and out.

very nice! I have been looking for a good way to store my pipe clamps above my garage door! I even have some extra 4” PVC from the Dust Collection setup. Thanks!

Sir Robert. Another good use for pvc pipi is to cut short lengths and use them to tidy up the cords on your power tools. Keep zigzagging your cord into a tidy bundle & slip the lot into a short length of tube. tidies things up & no more tangled leads
