How To Install Garage Storage Racks How To Install Garage Storage Racks

Garage storage racks are a great way to organize a garage and keep it from becoming overrun with junk.

Keep in mind a few basic steps when installing those racks.

Step One – Begin With a Plan
Decide on the storage solutions you need in your garage. Are you adding new storage racks to an existing system? Or are you beginning from scratch?

There are huge varieties of garage storage racks from which to choose. Some include small tool racks, garden tool racks, bike racks (single or multiple), ball cages, golf bag racks, ski racks, and fishing pole racks, just to name a few of the possibilities.

Of course, there are also the standard shelving racks as well. Decide what you want to use and where you need it before you buy anything.

Step Two – Locate Wall Studs
You’ll need to locate the framing studs in the wall in order to install any storage racks. If the studs are not spaced correctly for your product, then you may need to attach firing strips to the studs and install the racks onto the firing strips.

Step Three – Install the Product

Move all other items out of the area where you’ll be working. Install the storage carefully, and rearrange garage to take advantage of the new racks.
