Deal Details

Good time to pick this steal up from Costco. When combined with the $25 off 100 deal that american express is offering, it comes to $125. This thing holds up to 600lbs, which is far more than competitive products sold at home depot or lowes such as the Hyloft kits.

Retail price per google shopping ~$250, regular Costco price $199.
Current Costco.com deal ($50 off) so $149 - $25 for american express deal through facebook = $124.99 each

Enjoy! I bought two for my garage... time to get clutter off the floor.

i bought a house with a garage with something like this already installed. it's a god send. you can put a LOT of stuff up there. great for all those boxes for all the stuff that you purchase in case you need to send it back or keeping all the accessories for one item in

Not trying to shyte on the deal or anything OP, just offering alternatives to SD'ers....but if you search Craigslist for pallet racks/racking or wire decking, there are usually warehouses getting rid of this stuff dirt cheap. Alternatively, Home Depot and Lowes both sell Superstrut for around $15-20 per 10' piece and threaded rod for the uprights. Add a sheet of plywood and you're looking at around ~$60-80.

I've been researching racks for six months and was thinking about buying the equivalent of this from Amazon for $250. Yes, there are cheaper alternatives, but they are either flimsy (with cheap lag bolts which might fall out of the ceiling) or may take more time to put construct and put up.

Getting these for $150 is a super deal. TU and Repped.

you're probably seeing the cheap stuff on your local craigslist ads then...

i see a lot of this stuff on my local cl too and they are indeed cheaper...or you can buy the parts from HD with the 50 off 100 coupon and might even have a better built one with better components compared to Costco's.

that is if you wanna think outside the box...if not, Costco is right for you then...

How easy/hard is it to put this thing up? The new house we moved into doesnt have these things and I am so used to having them.

It's very easy to install them. Just make sure you bolt its to the stud ceiling for support.

is this good for the ceiling. I was talking with my builder in the past and he was not recommending this since the load from the rack was not designed in to the ceiling stud structure.

I also see quite few ceiling cracks on the dry wall with this type of racks in other houses.

thx

If your roof structure in your garage cannot support 600-700 pounds then you have a lot worse problems. I certainly hope you don't live in an area where you get snow.

I have this rack, think I paid $250 for it. It is somewhat time consuming to install, but once it's up it's awesome, very sturdy. The only thing i don't like is it does have some side-to-side sway in it, so I try not to lean on it when moving items around.

One other tip - when screwing the lag bolts into the ceiling, use something to lubricate them and go slow. They are fairly long, and once most of the way in, it's not hard snap the head off them.

I have a different version of these, but if you have EWB beams, or engineered wood joists, there is a maximum amount of holes you can drill into these beams from the bottom. For myself, I can only put 2 brackets on each beam. Be wary of this.
