Simple, Compact Clamp Storage
If shop space is short, this wall-mounted rack is your answer.
This wall-mounted rack holds a lot of clamps and only takes about 4 ft. of horizontal wall space. The clamps are arranged on varying lengths of threaded black pipe. The pipes are screwed into flanges, which are in turn screwed to a plywood base mounted to the wall. The pipes and flanges are readily available at hardware stores and home centers.
I played with the locations of the pipes so that nearly all the space on the plywood is used. A few long clamps—some of which hang off the bottom pipe and extend down to the floor—are missing for illustration purposes.
