Enclosed trailer awkward tool storage?

Looking to clean off my work bench in the trailer, making room for other tools needing the space. Am completely stumped at how to hang / store axes, sledge hammers, hedge clippers, and loppers safely during transport. I've been creative up until this point. What do you guys do?

the first one might work for your sledge and axes second for your hedge clippers loppers should be good with a few screw in hooks. those would be my guesses

Not sure why it took so long to realize this. But it did. The light bulb upstairs came on and I'm using PVC pipe strapped to the wall for the axes and sledge hammers (and other tools now come to thing of it). But as far as the hand held hedge sheers and loppers go, not quite sure. Anyone else got examples or ideas?

Used a smaller PVC pipe with the wall hangers, mounted on an angle for the loppers. Made room for the hand held hedge sheers on the wall using the PVC system as well.

Heavy duty wide bar magnet screwed to the wall. For good measure use some bungee cord. Kind of like a magnet to hold knives in a kitchen.

For the smaller hand tools I use a tool box.

I have a shovel/rake rack mounted to the ceiling of my trailer. It keeps everything much more organzied and it holds weight well. I have a couple rakes, shovels and a couple Kombie attachments in it.

I have it mounted far enough back, that the tools would hit my door, before they fell out. I haven't had any issue with anything coming out of it, and I drive reasonably, but with a sense of urgency. I have items going in from the front and rear of the rack.

I can post pictures later if it would help your cause.

That's how I use to store tools back in the day when I had a van. Not a bad idea. My trailer isn't tall enough on the inside for me to do this. Next trailer though, is gonna be different. Yeah feel free to post pictures. I could always use more ideas. I'm constantly adding tools, which means more creative ways to store them safely during transport (and easy access)
