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.

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.
[insert Not_Sure_If_Serious_Or.gif here] you are aware that past sales prices are used in determining if the current price is in fact a 'slickdeal' or not, right?

also, that's a turrrrible price. This 'deal' is only $260 for 2x. And here's a slickdeal link for another 2x pack for only $240: https://slickdeals.net/f/14562089-2-pack-saferacks-4-x-8-overhead-storage-kit-239-99?utm_source=iphone_app&utm_medium=share&utm_campaign=external+share

This is an ok deal. I purchased Hyloft 45 x 45 for $46 from Amazon and even that I thought was a pretty average deal.

What's the thought of these vs Saferacks?
Just read some reviews on Lowe's that worried me about bolts not holding etc. It looks like a known issue for several customers too.

Quote from Craig1978 :
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.
I'm using the fleximount 4x8 as well. Been using for about 6 months now and I'm thinking about getting another. The reviews on the Gladiator ones are what made me search for an alternative in the first place. However, the Costco saferack 2-pack deal is tempting me!

Does anyone know how to mimic just the shelf portion? Plywood wouldn't be terrible, but looking for that exposed metal shelf for a diy.

I can't compare but I've been using the safe racks for years with no issues. Came with an accessory pack to hang more stuff from it.

Well I'm not sure who is "peacocking" but I have years of experience in the trades. (Decades actually)
If I had a dollar for every review I read where user error was the issue I'd be a wealthy man. Can't count the number of times I read reviews, bought the item anyway and had zero issues. (User error)
Interesting side note; I just finished a 4x30 foot mezzanine in my shop. Full 30 foot span with no supports. (12 inch header) Obviously we used plenty of lags. I bought them all from the bins at Home Depot. We noticed some of the ones over 5 inches were shearing. I went to a hardware store and bought some different ones. Sure enough one of those sheared too. (1 of the 4)
I was perplexed as the sheared bolts were only in the right half, none on the left side. Took some pondering to finally figure out the issue. My son drilled the pilot holes in the right half, I did the left. I used the right size bit. My son used one of the other drills with a smaller bit in it. (He saw it in the shop and assumed that was what I used)
The difference was minute. It wasn't enough to be obvious to any of us at the time. It was enough to make "good" lag bolts shear though.
So had I bought that from a store and I was inept at construction I would've left a review about how terrible my lag bolts were. In fact, it was user error.
Also, with the price of powerful impacts today at such a low level it's allowed many weekend warriors to get in over their heads. I still finish my lags with a wrench to make sure I know the torque.

Either way, if the racks come and the bolts look suspect it's an easy fix.

Expanded metal? Not sure what size and capacity you are wanting.

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.
Lag bolt failures on something that'll hold hundreds of pounds over your head are not something to shrug off. Sketchy enough DIYers hitting center joist, why throw in material failures.

Quote from Danimal86 :
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.
You may have the older version of Saferack where it uses a single beam. In the new version, you link two 5ft beams together to get the 8ft support beam. So you have a foot of overlap in the middle. With that said, I don't think it impacts the weight capacity that much. It's mostly a matter of aesthetic as the single beam looks much cleaner.

Well that's pretty much my point. Gladiator isn't a small company. This isn't some Chinese unbranded item from the swap meet. Do you think these bolts weren't tested? Not rated? They just ship them out with a couple drywall screws and wait for the lawsuits to roll in? (Injured kids, wrecked cars, etc) 1 fatality caused by a underrated bolts and gladiator is no more.
So, what do I think is more reasonable? Homeowners are clueless or gladiator (sold by Home Depot, Lowe's, etc) are shipping millions of overhead racks with failing bolts?
If the bolts look suspect I'd chuck them. Cheap and easy enough to replace. My point was it's silly to pass on these if you need them because of the bolt reviews. Worst case, replace them. Best case, look them over and decide when you get them.
In my case I'll be going into 2x8's so I'll be getting longer lags anyway.

I'm in no way suggesting anyone hang anything with bad bolts, I wouldn't. I'm just saying don't let bad bolt reviews sway you

That's a good deal and comes with hooks accessories. Got this at the same price at Costco last year, it's well worth it for us to re-gain some garage space.
