    Anyone have any good ideas about what to use to hold equipment in an enclosed trailer, besides the really expensive ones you find on the internet!

    Had a friend of mine weld a 5 inch u bolt to a 4x4 piece of flat metal ,drilled holes in the 4x4 and screwed it to the wall and use it to hold a echo backpack blower works great and didn't cost 50 bucks like most bp holders.

    Petr51488,,,

    The racks you made with basic clamps and wood look like a great idea.

    How are they working out???

    Any problems / issues ??? Is the clamp tension still holding up???

    Have any weed-eaters fallen from a "big bump" ???



    Hope everyone is doing well

    Ive had the same setup of the 2x4's with the clamps and they are working great, I wish I would have done this a long time ago instead of pricing around for the expensive ones. I mounted the 2x4s onto the wall using those L shaped brackets and used 2 on each side and they are not coming off anytime soon. Grabbed the wood from a construction site trash pile and spent less than $10 for the clamps and hardware
