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.

Expanded metal? Not sure what size and capacity you are wanting.
Sorry, should have said grid I think. Basically thinking of securing 4 chains to cross studs in the ceiling (I have garage attic access luckily) and then buying an actual shelf portion like this to hang over garage door beam. Like ultimately 2' x 10' floating shelf sort of thing.

Great deal if you already have Gladiator Garageworks stuff in "hammered granite." Whenever possible I discard the included screws and use TimberLOK lag bolts for stud mounting whenever I can. Cheap insurance.

If you have access to above the joists... I would use actual bolts (and nuts) through a cross 2x4 as well. This is what I did. Bolts that length weren't cheap but I was making sure it wasn't coming down... for $15 (if I recall) it was worth the peice of mind to me...

I may have actually done a 4x4 because I had some left from the kids fort.

Again probably overkill but again I am making sure it's not coming down on anything. Most importantly my family.

Quote from aquaelvis :
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
Your point is to trust your anecdote over people's actual experience on such a serious item? A quality lag bolt would either suck this bracket into the wood or blow out the wood. No way to tell if a bolt is going to fail by looking at it. I don't dispute your point about people have a knack for screwing up anything you give them but we've all got shit fasteners in one product or another so it wouldn't surprise me a bit if they've worked their way to exactly where they shouldn't be.

Anyway, not threadjacking, good intentions, happy holidays.

Quote from whirlybird720 :
[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
Gas was 0.99/gallon when I was younger. If you're paying more than that then you are getting a crap deal.

I understand metal is better, and not having to fabricate something if you don't know how, but you could make something out of wood if you didn't want to pay for this. It would be heavier and take more time, but for those people who want to complain or don't want to pay for it, you can just build one.

Quote from inktel :
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.
Are you talking about the support that goes down the middle horizontally?
Mine look exactly like the do in the picture:
https://www.costco.com/saferacks-...06897.html
I should have been clearer, the ones linked in OP have vertical supports in the middle, might be a pain to deal with the extra vertical support in the middle. I would go with the costco ones.

Highly recommend Safe Racks. I bought 2 and had a handyman install since I read installation can be a little difficult for a novice like me.

Thinking angle iron with wire mesh as a shelf, no?

This is my thought exactly. I could build a garage full of these out of 2x4 and 5/8 ply for the price of one of the bigger ones.

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.
Not a bad idea, but can you use the hooks without the mesh?

You can still generate online coupons but it takes more time now.
I have a few for trade though.

This is a great price on the hardware. That said, I gladly paid a local company 10 times this cost for two 4x8 racks installed above my garage door. The installer had the work finished in an hour and I couldn't have been happier. They look great and got all kinds of crap off the floor.

Seriously? 10 times, $2400 to install? We should get a slicklabors or slickhandymen forum.
