Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Saluki100 Made for an interesting install
I really like this rack - it is heavy duty and powder coated nicely. The difficulty I had was because of my house not the product itself. My wall was angled and I wanted it to run with the wall, while the joists ran in angle from the wall. This caused the studs to be spaced at an odd spacing making it difficult to get the hangers at the proper distance. Our solution was to lag bolt some 2x4's to the ceiling following the angle of the wall then hanging the rack onto the 2x4's. Perhaps not as strong as directly into a stud but for the weight it will be carrying more than substantial enough.

The racks were easy to install, yes I bought two. The instructions were easy to understand, and with all the correct tools I got them up in about a hour and a half each.

This product is basically a bunch of parts that you assemble yourself. That said, the instructions were fine and it does go together as it should. I was impressed with the qaulity of the paint finish. My only negative is that other manufacturers supply a longer part to attach to ceiling joists, so you can span two joists and spread the weight.

I was rolling along with the installation and everything was fine. I was careful not to over tighten (as the directions said) As I was putting one of the end braces on I had to use my fist to get it to seat properly...2 of the lag screws that hold the rack to ceiling snapped. The heads completely snapped and the corner came down. I had to go to LOWES to get decent lad screws and replaced all the junk ones that came with this product. Glad it happened then and not when I put a load on it. How in the heck were those cheap lag screws going to hold 5-600lbs? What a joke.

Would I recommend this product? The real answer is maybe. The instructions warned me not to over torque the 3" shank bolts that go into the joists. After twisting one off, I was extremely careful to make certain I had pre drilled the holes 3" and did the others by hand. And twisted off another. the cast metal for the long bolts is, IMHO, too soft. The replacements from the Ace Hardware worked fine.
I felt like I mastered doing everything twice as the pictures in the assembly instructions don't match the diagrams or written instructions so I called the manufacturer and confirmed what I suspected; the pictures are simply erroneous.
Now that it's installed it works fine but the process was such a pain in the neck I'm not sure I would do it again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 22busy Nice storage solution
The rack was reasonably easy to install. My garage doesn't have rafters on 16" centers. They are assembled beams 20" apart. I had to install some 2x4s to give me a platform to install the brackets. Most won't have this issue. The rest of the install was very simple. Very sturdy. Even the kids commented on how much more spacious and organized the garage looks now.

This was a nightmare to install by myself. When done it solves all storage issues you might have. It was difficult to install in a gambrel roof. After numerous thoughts of quitting and jumping off a bridge it finally all came together. Have someone help you. The instructions are limited and not very helpful. Spread everything out on the ground and the peices make sense and come together.
Overall it's a great safe storage solution without worry of it falling on your head. Check all points of contact on ceiling and reenforce it if you think it needs it. Better safe than sorry. Home Depot is taking the online ordering industry by storm. Their customer service is top of the line and beats lowes anyday. Three thumbs up.
