So does the top bracket slide at all like a latch? Hard to tell from the photo. I saw it and thought of a channel that wing nut or something similar would ride in, that you could loosen, or tighten to allow the wood to move out of the way to remove the wheel barrow, or to hold it in-place against the wall. Do you have to wiggle the bottom out and under the catch? I just can't tell. Good idea.

Or maybe it's loose enough turn sideways to allow the wheel barrow to come away from the wall?

The top bracket just pivots on the center screw. It's a long wood screw with a straight shank at the head. I simply rest the front "pan" of the barrow on the bottom supports, tip it up to vertical, and rotate the latch 90° to close it.

Makes sense. Like I said: I have a tendency to over-complicate things. This is so much more straightforward. Thanks for the info.

What the heck is a wheelbarrow doing in your woodshop, son? Throw that thing (and the gas trimmer next to it) out back with the bicycles and boxes of family photos- this is a MAN'S SANCTUARY, not a GARAGE!

Good idea, though…

Patent pending? However, bookmarked it to make a personal copy. :D
Many times, the most simple ideas are the best. And yours is one of these!
