Okay simply put, I have to ladders, and only the space to store 1.
My current configuration is a couple of bicycle hooks hung from the studs between the garage doors, I simply hang the ladder between the doors. Sadly I don’t have enough room for 2 sets of hooks and ladders.
I can keep the 10 footer there with no problems. It’s the 6 foot ladder that I am worried about.
I am considering hanging it horizontally above one of the garage doors, between the shop lights. This poses a HUGE problem though. I SERIOUSLY doubt that studs will be exactly where I want them to put screw hooks. I am looking for alternative means to hang the ladder, tight up against the ceiling so that it is out of the way, not interfering with lighting, or door operation.
I am not thinking super fancy, but something akin to either one of these designs…
Or something I already have, one of those pulley bicycle hanger system thingies. I used to use it to hold my canoe off the ground, but that has since been moved…
I am obviously quite open for ideas. The biggest thing is that it be able to hold the ladder out of the way, safely, and be easy to access when needed…
