I just picked up this rack from a store moving sale. I’m thinking it would make a great clamp rack. I need ideas on how to convert it to hold clamps securely. Thanks

bolt 3×2 to arms and clamp the clamps lightly to 3×2s

Good idea. I’d like to be able to hang them easy and quick without having to necessarily clamp them to it.

I seen one something like that. The guy doubled up the horizontal bars with enough room so when you turn clamp head sideways the head would go through then just turn it 90 it hangs. the second horizontal you add needs to wide enough to keep the clamp from tilting to much.

when I need clamps I need a lot of them and quick. I would give two of those uprights the chop and then mount a piece of plywood across it. Then you have the option to mount your clamps however you want.

Have your say...
