As a previous review stated, this is measured exactly 32". Therefore, only 2 studs can be used for anchoring (not the 3 recommended in the instructions). It's a poor design but goes up easy. I'm not putting much weight on it so the lack of a 3rd stud, while disappointing, wasn't necessary for my uses.
Functional, Lots of Features
not the correct length
I haven't mounted this to the wall yet, since I'm debating whether or not to return it. The bracket is cut exactly 32" long, which is center-to-center stud spacing. The pre-drilled holes near each end are a half inch from the ends. Therefore, you cannot screw both ends into studs. I was hoping to have three fasteners into studs. The best you can do is two studs, by offsetting the bracket, and then use the hollow wall anchors for additional support.
This set was a smaller version of the Fasttrack system. I ordered on the "deal of the day" and realized that this was only the 6 piece compared to the 10 piece version. The smaller version was lacking some of the better accessories so will take one back in exchange for the larger version.
Durable, Easy to Assemble, Functional, Excellent Quality, High Quality of Material, Sturdy
This Rubbermaid Fasttrack System is a very nice way to add hanging storage. I'm using it in the closets of our RV and it fits in well since it's not too heavy duty like Husky and others I've seen that are bigger and bulkier for garage use only. This has plenty of capacity and a variety of clip on accessories available. I've purchased the individual track and hooks too but got this kit because it's the only way to get the single hooks, I'm not sure why but only the double versions are sold individually. It's the only negative to the system, I wish Rubbermaid would sell all the accessories individually, with the kit I ended up with a large double hook I didn't need just to get the single ones.
Easy to assemble and install. Opens up your garage space because you are storing things up against a wall. Only drawback is that they give you too many hooks for the three foot strip. The stip should be longer.
These tracks are great easy to install and 3 studs...

These tracks are great easy to install and 3 studs is plenty. Directions say install at last hole but spacing does not meet studs... directions what do you expect. I left a couple holes from end and I pulled myself up on rail to make sure it was stable.
Fast Track Rail - Single hooks not sold individually.
March 12, 2020
The fact that two types of single hooks are made for this rail system, which are likely two of the most useful accessories, and presumably would be relatively inexpensive as individual items, and that customers are only allowed to purchase them as part of a $43+ package reflects a business strategy that puts profit above customer needs. In order to purchase something the customer really needs or wants, the customer is forced to purchase a package with items the customer may not need or want. Multiple other specialized accessories (cooler hook, hose hook, etc.) that go with this system are sold as individual items but not the most useful accessories? They do not even give the customers the option to purchase these single hooks as part of, for a example, a package of two or five. This is a great system but the failure to sell single hooks as individual accessories does not sufficiently consider the needs of the customers.
I just purchased several rails and accessories which were installed along my garage wall. It looks great overall and an overall simple process. However, I am really frustrated that I cant purchase the single hooks for the system. I have multiple items which could be hung by a sing hook. Please let me know if I am able to purchase some of them.
