    A:  Hello Greg, please give us a call to check installation availability at 1-877-306-8930 option 2. Thank you for your questions and have a fantastic day!

    by|Sep 16, 2021

      A:  The vertical supports can be shortened to raise the height by simply cutting them in the right location between holes.  They system cannot be dropped lower without purchasing longer uprights or bolting on upright extensions.

        Q:can I install this rack in my "TuffShed with a 8/12 roof, 7' walls?
        by|Jan 6, 2020

        Answer This Question

        A:  No.

        by|Jan 8, 2020

          A:  Hello Dan, Thank you for your inquiry. VersaRac can be installed on wooden stud and not on TuffShed. If you need any assistance, please feel free to reach out to us on our customer service line at 1-877-306-8930 option 1 and we will be happy to assist you with any concerns.

          by|Jan 8, 2020

            A:  If by TuffShed you mean one of the pre-fab wooden sheds sold by Home Depot, then yes, it would probably work, but, depending on the design and construction, I'm not sure that the VERSARAC would be able to hold anywhere near its 500+ pound rated capacity. I would suggest that, instead of the VERSARAC, you purchase a few pieces of 2" X 6" lumber, a 4' X 8' piece of 3/4" plywood (custom cut to fit), a box of 3" deck screws, and build a big shelf inside your shed instead. That way the load would be supported by the walls and not by the ceiling.

            by|Jan 8, 2020

            A:  You can as long as you're willing to make any necessary mods. If your TuffShed walls are only 7' long, you'll have to reduce the length of this rack from 8' to 7'. If you meant that the walls are 7' high but long enough to fit it, then it's just a matter of deciding how high you want to hang it since it'll obviously be in the way for walking in if you hang it lower than your height. With an 8/12 pitched roof and I assume you mean there are no ceiling joists, then with the rack's 4' depth the front legs will need to be about 32" longer than the back legs to make it level. Since the legs allow a max hanging distance of about 40", you've got 8" to play with. So yes, it can be installed in your shed.

            by|Jan 7, 2020

            A:  You can put it anywhere it will fit. Your shed seems a little small for this 4’x8’ rack.

              Answer This Question

              A:  Hello Shawn, Thank you for your inquiry. The VersaRac needs to be installed into your ceiling joists/wall beams (cannot be installed into engineered joists or steel beams). If your joist spacing is not 48", 72" or 96" apart than you need to span a joist hanger. If your ceiling is finished with drywall, installing a joist with joist hangers will require cutting a hole in the drywall. The VersaRac width can be adjusted from 72"W - 96"W and the height can be installed at 18"H or 27"H - 42"H. If you need any assistance, feel free to reach out to us on our customer service line at 1-877-306-8930 option 1 and we will be happy to assist you with any concerns.

              by|Nov 27, 2019

                A:  I ran 5/16 x 3 in lag screws up through 1/2 drywall into 2x6 and loaded my racks heavy. They have been up for 3 years and no problems. You probably need to add additional 2x on top of the flat 2x where you are attaching to or run a bolt through from the top.

                by|Nov 27, 2019

                  A:  at least an inch if you want max weight of 600 lbs

                  by|Nov 28, 2019

                    A:  No less than 3/4”. You should be mounting directly to the truss, which would have more than enough depth.

                    by|Nov 27, 2019

                      A:  You do have 4 slots in each plate to anchor to the 2x4. So in that sense there should be enough "bite" in the wood ,BUT....the lag screws that came with the rack is not threaded at the last inch or so nearest to the head so for you this may be in an area where it's past your "bite" area. If you have access to the attic or crawl space , you could support the screw areas with another piece of 2x4 laying on top of the first 2x4. With this layout, I wouldn't store a heavy load more that 250 lbs.

                      Liked it so much I bought a second one
                      Originally bought a 4x8’ about 5 yrs as I have a high garage ceiling (14’). It’s held up well and as my storage needs expanded, I’d been looking for another one for several years but they’ve been out of stock everywhere. Was ready to go with a different brand but saw these become available again and on sale as well so I picked up another one. Very happy with both now as it’s great to get misc stuff off the ground and make the garage so much neater.

                      NOT SUITED FOR MODERN CONSTRUCTION HOME GARAGES - It does say it is "designed to be installed into wood joists only and NOT to steel joists". However, nowhere in the description does it say it is NOT to be installed to engineered wood joists (which is a large percentage of new-ish homes these days). As soon as I opened it and gave a glance at the manual, I see the last page that clearly and emphatically addresses modifications to be made to engineered ceiling joists should you decide to proceed with installation. Even if my garage ceiling was not drywalled, modifications would take tons of labor, materials, time and quite possibly a construction professional to perform. Adding the fact that it is drywalled, this includes cutting, removing, replacing, patching and painting ceiling PRIOR to installation. At first I thought to ignore these warnings but after doing a little more research, I did learn it is really a big risk to install it without modifying the ceiling structure as those "I" beams are not engineered to hold weight pulling from below. Went to the all-mighty and savvy internet looking for answers and could not find anyone recommending installing to engineered joists in a safer or easier way than described in manual. Therefore, after spending the $170 + shipping + borrowed truck to pick up, it will take much more than that to have it installed. I can only hope that everyone here that installed it is aware of the safety hazard this represents and that they did their due diligence in double checking theirs was solid wood joists. Mine is going back to the store. HOME DEPOT: Please try to add that description to item title so people know what they're getting into. Something like "NOT FOR ENGINEERED JOIST - CONFIRM YOUR TYPE OF CONSTRUCTION BEFORE PURCHASING AND/OR INSTALLING" would have been be very helpful.

                        I think the rack is of fairly good quality. The biggest downside is that the mounting points are non-adjustable, meaning that if they don't line up pretty much perfect with your ceiling joists, it is an issue. Because my garage is fully sheetrocked (including ceiling) and there is no way to easily access the joists from the attic space there to add a cross joist, I couldn't mount this the way it's supposed to be mounted. So I had to MacGuver it. For a rack designed to handle a good amount of weight, this took careful planning and measuring, and purchasing some hearty Spax screws (I used 5/16" 4 inch lag screws) to mount it into the wall studs. While I'm satisfied with the end result, it took a lot of effort. Refer to pics. This product would be much better if the mounting points were slightly adjustable, like being able to go a few inches either way, for when it doesn't line up perfectly.

                          Before you buy plz measure the rafters in your garage.
                          So the rafters in my garage are 16 inches apart. Well i was forced to either go with a length of 64, 80, or 96 inches. Well the bottom frame would not allow me to go 80 inches like it says. (It says something like adjudtable, “72-96”). Well i had to buy other materials and improvise to accomidate the length that i needed. Before you buy this i recommend that you check the length of your rafters. I saw a similar product which would have more precise for my needs.

                              This is a great rack for adding storage to the dead space above your garage door. You want to make sure when installing in this area that you bring it forward enough to clear the apex of the garage door when it opens up. Get a ladder and observe from the side track above the door when opening it and see where the edge reaches it's apex and just move forward of that point. You should still have plenty of room above the door. I had to bring mine forward from the garage opening about 2.5' to allow the door to open without striking the edge of the rack.

                              Very sturdy rack, adjustable to fit your needs. Husband and I installed it in a couple of hours, only some slight shoulder aches from arms lifted up for long periods of time. It was a little difficult to use the stud finder overhead, so we opted to go into the attic and use a very small punch tool to punch a hole on either side of the studs. Great storage for items that can't withstand the temperatures in the attic.
