Racor Multi-Purpose Wall Storage Rack



You can never have too much storage space in your shop, garage, or home. Wall mounting systems are popular because they're very easy to install, make use of, otherwise, empty wall space, and are a fairly inexpensive investment.
 
This Racor 450 Rack Multi-Purpose Wall Storage Rack (PLM-1R) is a convenient, easy to install system that can hold a fair amount of weight — up to 150 pounds per pair tier, for a total of 450 pounds per rack.
 
It's constructed of 1/8" thick steel plate, and comes in a package that consists of two stiles (the upright mounting bars) and six rails (the arms that fit into the stiles). All the pieces have a durable epoxy coat finish for rust protection and ease of cleaning. There are also rubber end caps for the rails.

The kit: 2 stiles, 6 rails, end caps, mounting screws   
                    
Assembly is straightforward. The rails slip into slots on the front of the stiles, and then are bolted into place with the supplied lock nuts and washers. Once all the rails are bolted into place it's a simple matter of attaching each of the stile onto the wall.

The PLM-1R comes with four 1/4" x 1-1/2" lag screws that you can use to attach it to a wall. You'll want to sin the screws into the wall studs, particularly if you intend to load the rack to it's maximum carrying capacity.
 
Adding shelving is a great way to extend the storage capacity of this rack. The rails will hold shelves approximately 9-3/4" deep — holes in the rails enable you to secure the shelves firmly to the rack. You can also stack long objects across the rails, or simply hang them on the rails. The rails are slightly tilted, rather than being square to the stiles, and the ends are cantilevered. This keeps items from falling off the ends of the rails.
