Organize Your Garage: Best Racks for Bikes and ToolsWant to make the most of your garage space? Get your stuff off the floor. When you stack your tools, bikes, and sporting equipment, you’ll be amazed by the space you save. Here are some of the best options when it comes to racks to store your stuff and confine the mess.

Bike Racks

If you’ve only got a couple of bikes, this bike hook from Gladiator through the Home Depot makes a convenient option. Affordable for less than $18, it’s an ideal rack for storing a couple of child or adult bikes with minimal space.

If you’ve got up to four bikes to store, the Saris Cycle Glide is a convenient option that holds up to 4 bikes weighing up to 50 pounds each. Each rack slides out independently so you can easily access each bike. Have more than 4 bikes to store? You can buy additional gliding racks to store a total of 6 bikes.


One of the best ways to store a variety of tools is the Rubbermaid Tool Tower. Store rakes, shovels, weedwackers, tree trimmers, brooms and snow shovels in the space of a small cubby. Though a bit more expensive, the Flow Wall is an even greater saver on space by turning the walls of your garage into a versatile tool wrack.

When Car Dings Cause Your Garage Door to Come Off Track

One of the most common reasons for your garage door to come off its track is you hit it with the car. Even a minor scrape at 3 to 5 mph can damage the track and cause the door to pop off the next time you use it. If you hit the track backing up, turn off the car, step out and inspect the damage. If there is damage, no matter how minor, call a professional garage repairman for a more experienced inspection. Many offer emergency garage door services, 24 hours a day. If the garage door does come off track, stop using it immediately. Keep kids, pets and anyone else out of the area until it has been fixed.
