Clamp Rack Revisited

A while back I built a mobile clamp rack based on NickyP's design as I really liked the small footprint. (pic 1) This design worked well for the “quick grip” clamps but it didn’t handle the “F” style or parallel clamps as well. I needed to “clamp” them to the cross piece and since the clamp handle was on the “inside” of the framing, it was difficult to get to them.

I decided to make make some slotted plywood sections and screw them to the existing framing, reversing the way the parallel and F style clamps hung.
I now can store over 40 clamps in the same footprint as before and I no longer have to try to squeeze my hands in to loosen the clamps.

Not a big project, but it sure made it more enjoyable to use the mobile rack.

Looks good, I’m still stuck on whether I want a cart or a wall-mounted rack. This is the best overall cart rack design I’ve seen so far – small footprint and very versatile

Small footprint. Large results.
