Minimalist Clamp Storage

Can you call a 1 1/2" square strip screwed to the wall a clamp storage system? Well it stores my clamps so I do although I can’t see it winning any design contests. Pluses are cost, construction time and space efficiency. Minuses are ….. ummm …. can’t think of any. I don’t have as many clamps as I used to and don’t use these as often since I started using hot hide glue as my go to goo. The “system” however will work for as many clamps as you like.

The other rack was a spur of the moment idea that has worked fine for eleven years now, no complaints.

Thanks for looking,

This is as good as any I’ve seen. I don’t think there is an ultimate clamp storage system. I could not use this system in my shop due to not having enough available wall height in my shop. There probably is a system that will appeal to a majority of woodworkers though and this might well be one of them.

Tidy,with efficient use of space, and easy access. It may not be a contest winner but I like it.
I have fewer clamps but lack the free wall space to do something like this. My small clamps are attached to one of the legs of my clock movement test stand, C clamps are in a milk crate, and bar clamps are stashed away somewhere as I haven’t used them in years. Needless to say I won’t be entering this contest.
