While I didn't get the rail from Lowe's, my wife did come across the 8 piece starter kit that was on clearance at Costco which, when compared to the individual pieces as sold at Lowe's or Home Depot, was a much better deal. The Costco 8 piece kit included:
2 - 48" Rails
1 - Utility Hook
1 - Handle Hook
2 - Scoop Hooks
2 - Multi-purpose Hooks
By the way, the 8 piece kit sold at Costco isn't the same as the standard 8 piece kit that is listed on Rubbermaid's site. This is Costco-packaged/bundle which has different number of hooks and different size rails. The regular retail 8 piece kit, for instance, includes 2 32” FastTrack Garage Rail, 1 Power Tool holder, 2 2-Handle Hooks and 3 Scoop Hooks.
We bought one first (and subsequently bought two more kits, for future use) and on Monday during the MLK holiday, I finally had a chance to install it on one side of of our garage walls. The installation instructions stated that you're supposed to use the supplied wall anchors for the holes in between the studs (16" or 24"). You're also supposed to drill pilot holes (1/8" for the studs, and 3/8" where the anchors goes) but since I couldn't find my drill bits, I only screwed it in where the studs were, but I think it will hold.
The organizational point for us, at least, was to move all the stuff like garden tools, shovels, rakes, and a wheelbarrow (from Costco; this one is HEAVY!) off the floor, to make room for the little kids bikes and stuff. I bought the wheelbarrow rack separately from Lowe's (http://www.rubbermaid.
Attached are some before and after pictures. When time and weather permits, I'm sure I'll be putting on additional rails and hooks.
I'm sold on this system!
Worth mentioning that the current pricing for the Costco 8 piece set is now $20
& one warehouse by me has it for
Needless to say, I picked up 6 units.
I've only mounted 3X 4' rails so far. But it's worth it to get extra kits just for the hooks.
