Mastercraft Ceiling Storage Rack
Does the job
These work great-Picked up last night and installed in garage for a bunch of stuff that was just on the ground.If you are cheap like the customer below, then just make some out of 2x4...although it makes one ask the question why you bought them in the first place if you are so handy?

Very happy. My husband installed these alone on a Sat (he is not handy) took him 3 hours to do 4. They look great and are sturdy. We are picking up four more as now we keep finding things that we want to get out of the way. Yes, a little pricy but for non handy people like us there is no way we'd build our own. Wait for when they go on sale and purchase then.

A great ideal but you can build your own with some brackets and 2x4's for much less.

Just installed one of these during the Thanksgiving weekend and it is very good. It may seem flimsy because it shakes easily but it is sturdy enough to hold the weight.
Don't bother with the nails provided to hold the corner brackets in place while you drill. I found it tough to hammer the nail in through the joist while standing on a ladder and reaching overhead. Just hold the brackets againt the ceiling and mark the holes to drill with a pencil. I used 4" screws (you will need 8 - 2 per corner) instead of the provided 2.5" screws because I have finished ceiling in my garage. Make sure you have a tall enough and sturdy step ladder for the job. Also, don't worry too much about the corner brackets being a little out of line. One of my corner brakets was a little crooked but it still worked out fine after I put all the pieces together.
The bigger (45" x 60") version of this model (46-8649-2) is much sturdier and holds up to 500 lbs.

Perfect for the wasted space above garage doors!
Picked up 3 and installed over one garage door and liked them so much, I picked up 2 more for the other side. It does take a bit to install but worth it. We put Christmas decorations up there and other misc light seasonal stuff. btw..these are the same ones (manufacturer) that H*** Depot sell online only (sold under different name), but charge quite a bit for shipping, so well worth picking up these Master Craft ones in store!

No just for the garage
I used this in my laundry room over my washer and dryer. It holds all my luggage and my sons hockey equipment when he's not using it.
I love it, I plan to hang a few of these in the garage.
They do appear flimsy but are actually really sturdy.

A great space saver
I have two of these units, one at the cottage, one at home and plan to add more. The unit seems a little flimsy, but its not. It will hold a lot of weight comfortably and the see through grid helps you to identify whats stored overhead. At the cottage I store all the water boards, ski's and such up out of the way, the open grid design is great for placing hangers with wet suits on to dry or anything else you want to just clip.
At home the unit fits up between the garage door and the ceiling, and even though its only a 20" space its great place for storage that could not otherwise be utilized.
Good idea and great product.

I bought four of these units for my garage. I installed them in two sets of two on either side of my garage but each set 17inches apart on centre. That allowed me to put a brace between them and mount an extra 16 inch wire shelf. I will definitely limit the weight I put on them so as not to exceed the limitations.
The first one was difficult to install because my garage is finished - finding studs and working overhead is not fun. However, the next ones went up easily. They store so much that otherwise would be taking up valuable space.

Great for extra storage in garage
Love this storage rack and I installed in the garage for storing luggage and seasonal items like Christmas decorations. It takes a bit of time to install but once it is done, it can hold a lot of stuff and very strong.

Received this for Christmas. It was very easy to install. Plan to buy a few more to make use of the high ceilings in my garage.
