I find it hilarious that the negative reviews all boil down to “Lag screws to attach to wall not included”. Really, People???
Not surprised here. I found it was cheaper to leftover pieces of 2x4 than to buy a rack like this. It leads me to question, who would buy a rack like this? Who has lumber to store but cant make their own rack? The same people that expect the lag screws to be included.
Previous poster’s comments are spot on. However, if you billed this as a “Four Snowboard Storage Rack”, I’d bet they’d sell out!
With how expensive a 2x4 has become over the past year, this may be cheaper than buying dimensional lumber to build one at this point! In all seriousness, these are actually great for a beginner woodworker who may not be confident in their skills yet to build something strong enough to hold a few hundred pounds of material.
No way a 2x4 would hold 50# without a diagonal or vertical support.
These racks store a lot of wood (also ladders) in a small space.
Not to mention how much clunkier looking a home-built 2x4 version would look.
So I am buying a rack to store the 2x4’s I have piled in the corner that I can use to build a rack for free?
I can confirm, these make outstanding ski racks. Each level can hold 2 pair of skis and poles can hang by their wrist straps. Get those skis off the floor of the garage and up on the wall.
A friend was actually telling me today how crazy the prices still are. At this price I definitely would consider buying a rack because time = money. Especially if one has to buy the lumber to make a rack. When I needed a rack I had time, a bunch of short 2x4 scraps, and racks were in the $50 range.
I see a lot of you are exaggerating your rack building skills. A true carpenter would have long since built one themselves.
