You need to be able to locate your ceiling joists reliably and run some lag bolts into them at the right spacing, after that is done its really pretty easy. Since you will potentially be suspending hundreds of pounds where it could fall on your vehicles or people its important to get this correct. I think they are easy if you are confident in your ability to do that. No harder than mounting a wall shelf into studs just a higher cost of failure.

Get the Costco saferack ones. These are just like legos and you add 2x4 or 4x4 racks together. This means that you will have a support bar in the middle of your shelf is you have one that's is longer than 4'.
I have the saferacks from Costco that is 160 right now and much better. No middle support.

Quote from FLTURD :
Are there still coupon code generators these days?
I have used a site recently that still makes coupons that work in store only (not online). The problem now is Lowe's does minimum pricing on items now so the coupons don't work on everything (especially when on sale) ... but there is no way to know when it will or will not work.

I know it usually doesn't work on power tools and appliances (my experience at least) but then I did a large painting project in September and it worked on every item I bought in that order (graco paint sprayer, 5 gallon buckets of paint, brushes, tape, etc). When it does work you can still stack it with the Lowe's card 5% off too.

What's the thought of these vs Saferacks?
Saferacks are amazing, I have 3 in my garage, they can take a beating and can hold an insane amount of weight without bending or any problems. I'd say go with Saferacks.

Reading the Reviews on the Lowe's website lead me to believe there is a problem with the quality of the lag bolts that are included in the kit. Every poor review mentions that the lag bolts broke. Avoid this product or purchase higher quality lag bolts.

Or learn how to install properly? These are DIY installs, in most cases DIY'ers have no idea what they are doing and either drill a large pilot hole or none at all. I always take those types of reviews with a grain of salt. (Worse case scenario you end up buying a couple extra bolts)
My thoughts thus far is that every bolt would break if there were issues. A lot of broken bolts just points to the facts that most homeowners don't have a clue.

TD - price...

identical 4'x8' MonsterRacks were on sale for $119 two weeks ago on woot.com (expired)

I purchased 2x 4'x8' SafeRacks with hanging holder hooks for $260 2 years ago. Same price, but included multiple hooks for bicycles, ladder, etc.

I will say, these hanging storage racks are awesome! I have 2 of the 4'x8' racks over my garage door (12ft ceilings). I keep all my saws, gardening supplies, bike rack, ski rack, pop-up canopy, camping supplies, summer/winter car tires, etc. up there out of the way. I would HIGHLY recommend any of the overhead storage racks if you have the space.


A note on installation - I knew I was going to want these when we had our house built (new construction neighborhood), so I took pictures of the ceiling joists pre-drywall so I knew exactly which way the beams ran and how to install these DIY so they were correctly/strongly mounted. Use a stud finder, tape measure, and it may be worth drilling a tiny hole on either side of the studs to make sure you have these centered before drilling your pilot hole for the lag bolts. you REALLY want all 8 lag bolts centered on the separate joists. a little extra drywall filler and sample size ceiling paint is a lot cheaper than the risk of having these fall on your vehicle or you.

Those reviews are pretty eye-watering.

- Lag bolts sheer in half well below maximum weight rating
- Lag bolts sheer during installation (even with pre-drill)
- Poor QA (e.g. obvious mistakes during manufacturing got shipped to customers).
- General questions about quality/tolerances (e.g. bolts that barely fully seat)

This all reads like a whose who of cost-cutting to the point of the product suffering. Lag bolts sheering for one example is the difference between an 50 cent chinesium bolt, and a $1.50+ outdoor construction lag bolt.

People blaming it on user error are just peacocking their own inexperience (i.e. a standard construction lag bolt will survive being driven with a brushless impact, and still support its rated weight, particularly into untreated 2 by 4s of all things, these are metal defects).

Have you actually used the Gladiator racks as a comparison, or are you just recommending because you have experience with Saferacks?

Quote from Two-Sons-Squadron :
I looked through some reviews and they are not great for the sample I perused. Many mentioned documentation and crap lag bolts.
Documentation on these aren't the best, but it is in English and functional. The Lag Bolts are a complete waste and I would recommend purchasing stronger lag bolts - I honestly recommend this on anything you are hanging over your heads or vehicles in your garage - don't become the next Allstate commercial - Mayhem exists 🤣

Great installation recommendation - center the lag bolts (know the edges before you drill) and make sure they are completely sunk and clean! Great reminder for those buying any of these units!

The price 2 years or even 2 weeks ago doesn't help those of us without a DeLorean. The double 4x8 set is $400 at costco for me right now.

I installed fleximount 4x8 in my garage a month ago. Buy directly from their site with a coupon code for cheapest price. 4x8 grid are $132 and 4x8 plywood are $67. I like the racks where you add your own plywood because you can paint the plywood to match and you don't see all the clutter on the shelf.
