Rockler’s mobile clamp rack, the Pack Rack Clamp & Storage System, is a sturdy and customizable rolling unit.
The shining feature of this rack is mobility. And Rockler did not skimp when it added the high-quality polyurethane casters.
Carriage bolts assemble the frame, so you’ll need only one wrench to ratchet things tight. Plus, the square portion of the bolts assist in keeping the frame aligned during assembly.
Along the rack’s steel A-frame are 13 mounting holes in which you position eight included steel rods for clamp hanging. With the rods in position, your clamps rest along multiple points, so when you roll the unit around your shop, you’ll never have to worry about a clamp falling off.
The rack kit comes with shelf hooks so you can add a center shelf for additional clamp storage. Plus, you can purchase accessories such as longer steel rods on which to hang additional clamps off the side.
In our shop we stocked the rack with more than 30 parallel-jaw clamps in varying sizes, and there’s still space available. We also attached a portable dust collector to the side of our unit. With the additional weight of the dust collector and brimming with numerous clamps, this rack still glides across the floor.
This unit’s mobility and sturdiness allow you to fully customize the system to fit your shop’s needs.
Complete assembly instructions are included, but if you have problems, there’s an expanded set of instructions with step-by-step photos at rockler.com.
If you’re looking for a new clamp-storage solution, the Pack Rack Clamp & Storage System is a good choice.
