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

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 you stand with a few people in the room above the garage will you fall through due to excessive weight?

This is a fantastic price for SafeRacks. I paid $600 for two of them a couple years ago. I'm going to buy a couple more at this price! They are extremely sturdy and hold a ton of stuff so it's not sitting on my garage floor taking up room. I've got no issues with cracks in the ceiling. Only took about 45 minutes each to install them.

I built my own with a 4x8 sheet of 1/2"plywood, 2x4's and L brackets. You can cut the sheet to any length you want. I may have had 30 bucks in each one and it takes no more than 30 minutes. here's some good instructions http://www.familyhandyman.com/DIY...ep-By-Step

I did the same. I think a lot of people are afraid of a saw and cordless screw driver.

I did the same but it cost me closer to $57 per rack (still considerably cheaper). I modified the FH.com version for added strength and incorporated fishing rod holders into the 2x4 support braces used to keep the plywood from sagging.

Says *Note : SafeRacks cannot be installed into metal-framed homes or concrete ceilings.

Aren't most garage ceilings made out of concrete? I have a concrete ceiling---anything I can do to use this?

This just confirms the killer deal I got a few months back at Lowes on the 4x8 Kobalt ones that they had a clearance for $49.98 each. I just put them up and love them! Definitely recommend these racks where storage is an issue. Make sure you have enough room on your ceiling that your garage door opener or a doorway won't get in the way.

I just checked Lowes and my local store has the Kobalt one for $129, so that is still cheaper than this (even though it is more than the $50 you paid). The only complaints I have seen on the Kobalt one are the cheap lag screws which is easily fixable since lag screws are inexpensive.

I may pick up the Kobalt one with the 10% off movers coupon and 5% lowes card.

I live in a 2-story town-house. The top of the first story is concrete.

Haha, nope, I think you are gonna be in the minority here. It must be ridiculously expensive to have a concrete ceiling since gravity kinda works against you so you would need some pretty good forms to do a ceiling. Unless your first floor is concrete and doubles as the ceiling of the garage.

Yes they will work since you would be securing them to the studs that are running inside your ceiling. The concrete walls are just the "resting place" for your studs going across your ceiling.
