Recently found myself with too many tools leaning against walls and falling over from time to time. I was looking for a medium duty system that was also flexible to add, subtract, or move around as my needs and tool quantity changed. The fast track system answered those questions for me. In fact, the 6 piece kit was the third one I purchased having previously purchased too 7' long rails and hangars a-la-cart. I will continue to add to my fast track collection.
I would like to see more basket options and possible small tool organization options such as screw driver sets and wrench sets.
I needed to buy more of the hooks that came with my 6 piece kit and found out they were not offered without the purchase of another kit. NOT GOOD! FastTrack system is not very adaptable to certain specific needs.
Dave C. is absolutely correct. Both the 48" and the 32" products need to be two inches longer. It is simply not possible to hit 4 studs (16" apart) with the 48" product, or three studs (16" apart) with the 32" product (I have both). To hit all 4 studs one would need to install the product at the very edge of the product, which is not possible because there are no installation holes on the edge. On the 48" product, the outside installation holes are 46" apart; on the 32" product, the outside holes are 30" apart. I am astonished that Rubbermaid engineers didn't catch this prior to production. Otherwise, a great product, but it doesn't hold as much weight as it could if it were properly designed. With two more inches, it would be a five star product.
I purchased and used the fast track system in my condo's garage. This looked great and was a selling point for the place--the new owner loves it as well. Now, I use the fast track system at my new home/garage. They look great, keep me organized, and hold a good deal of weight--bikes, trimmers, wheelbarrow, etc.
I recently purchased this kit for the cleaning closet--just off the kitchen. This will organize the moo, broom, dustpan, and cleaners. I'd also like to use the system in my basement to store sporting goods.
This system was just what I wanted to get my garage organized. It is well built, and super easy to install. It's the reason I look to Rubbermaid first for many of my home-goods. However, why a company would make a multi-piece, versatile system and not sell every component a-la-cart is beyond me. The most basic unit for organization, the single hook, is only sold via the kit. I own all the rail my garage walls can handle. It's wasteful and flies in the face of versatility to not offer the single/scoop hooks separately. It seems (from reading comments) this has been the policy for over 2 years. When will marketing realize they are preventing customers from offering invaluable word-of-mouth advertising. When people see my garage they get inspired to get their stuff in order, too. It's too bad I have to let them know of this glaring limitation, and even point them toward competitors. Also, please start offering singe handle hooks. Tools likes rakes need more space between them than the double handle hook offers.
