It’s a Racor Vertical Bike Rack, came in really handy here.

Large tall pieces of furniture like a wardrobe, display case, drawers and even tvs always tell you to bolt it to the wall or use tip over safety straps (https://www.amazon.com/Hangman-Anti-Tip-Kit-Furniture-Prevention/dp/B000VW7WBC).

I mostly used this guide - https://tombuildsstuff.blogspot.com/2014/02/diy-server-rack-plans.html?m=1

The 20U rails on Amazon - Reliable Hardware Company RH-20-SRR-A 20U Full Hole 20 Space Rack Rail Pair https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00JJ18OVS/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_hPG7Ab276K7A2

The wheels on Amazon - Swivel Caster Wheels Rubber Base with Top Plate & Bearing Heavy Duty with Total Lock Brake Pack of 4 Black by Online Best Service (2.5" With Brake) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01N45QP3Z/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_0PG7AbTNSG1AW

The shelf on Amazon - AC Infinity Vented Cantilever 2U Universal Rack Shelf, for 19” equipment racks. Heavy-Duty 2.4mm Cold Rolled Steel, 100lbs Capacity. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01C9L3K18/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_LQG7Ab7SMH2JA

The wood I got isn't normal 2x4's, but instead 1 1/4 x 3 pine. It's the wood in the back of Home Depot that costs $20 per 8 foot board but worth it due to them being a lot straighter. I used 4 boards to complete this.

I used 2" Kreg screws with my Kreg Jig. The mounting depth for the rails is 21.5".

u/pleaseturn1 · 23 pointsr/DIY

Here's how you do it. Don't. Honestly, it's not worth potentially damaging the walls, as University Housing regulations usually have explicit rules about these things. Some even go as far as to say how you can affix posters and such.

Look into something like this or this if you're looking for something that won't take up space. Even though both can handle two bikes, you could always use the top rack and utilize the space below, or allow your roommate to use it as well.

You'll save yourself the time, potential repairs, possible fines, and be able to take this with you when you move into an apartment.

u/nestcto · 16 pointsr/sysadmin

Get some good shelving racks. The kind rated for a couple thousand pounds. Something like this:

https://www.amazon.com/Sandusky-5-Shelf-Shelving-4000lbs-Capacity/dp/B019F7P2QU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1487619803&sr=8-1&keywords=Edsal%2Bshelving&th=1

AVOID those wire shelves that use the shitty little black plastic pieces to attach the shelves it to the poles. The plastic breaks and the shelves fall, and they're just terrible. I'm talking about this kind:

https://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-5-Shelf-Shelving-Unit-Black/dp/B018YLFJX4/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1487619726&sr=8-5&keywords=Wire+shelf+rack

/u/thelastquesadilla/ suggested a workbench too, I second that. Very useful. You may also take the opportunity to get a decent crash cart set up if you don't already have one.

Also, peg board. Why? wrap your wires up and hang them on it. No more boxes full of tangled power cords, and network cables.

u/BornOnFeb2nd · 11 pointsr/homedefense

>Things I’ve already thought about are making sure we have electrical outlets in areas that I’ll be putting cameras

This isn't needed if you get Power Over Ethernet (POE) cameras.. which you probably should be using anyway...


Lesse...

  • Run cabling everywhere... Coax / Cat[5e/6] is dirt cheap compared to running it after the fact.
  • Instead of just running cables, run PVC conduit (watch those bends!), that'll make re-running cables in the future easier.
  • Have a spot in the house dedicated to the cabling, all the cabling should go there.
  • Run a couple of pieces of Coax outside the house for internet hookups, cap the ends in something watertight, run that to your cabling area
  • What I'm thinking of doing is putting each room on it's own sub-panel in their closet, and running a single fat line there. I think it should make the electric simpler
  • Power outlets in the soffits for decorations
  • Ethernet for POE cameras/devices ran where you think you'd need it... Doorbell, edges of the house, wherever. (I'm a fan of Axis cameras)
  • Think about Home Automation... it's more expensive, but the ability to turn on every light in your house, or lock your doors remotely can be a boon for the whole home defense bit (check out homeseer.com, and don't forget about door open/closed sensors)
  • Look into garage doors that have automatic "Deadbolts" on them... First I encountered was paired with the Liftmaster jackshaft, but that doesn't mean it's the only one. When the main door closes, it throws a bolt into the track so even if someone hit the release, they couldn't open the door (stealthily, at least) without ALSO throwing the bolt. Very easy from the inside.
  • Whole house generator
  • Tankless water heaters
  • Circulating pump on a timer/automated so the shower is instantly warm when you get in it.
  • Whole house fan?
  • Window films... putting them on after the fact basically guarantees you'll void the warranty, so check that up front.
  • Consider an ICF build, great for thermal control, and a bitch to get through.
  • Don't skimp on your bathroom.... why bother with the mundane shower/tub combo?
  • Fuck cabinets, look into DRAWERS, at least for the stuff below waist level
  • Don't mount your TV over the fireplace.. just...don't.
  • Heated floors can be awesome.. look into the whole Passive House idea... quite a bit would make it difficult for folks trying to break in as well.
  • Home theater w/ Projector?
  • Don't settle for an "X" car garage... make sure it (and the driveway) is wider, and deeper so you have room to move about and/or store stuff even with two cars in there. High ceilings can also be a boon to storage
  • If you're digging a basement, look at the cost of going a few feet deeper. I have a "normal" depth basement, but with HVAC and shit, there's spots that it's VERY easy to hit the something. If/When I get around to building a place, I'll probably target like 11-12', so someone who is ~6' tall could do an overhand swing without hitting something... if they jump, it's on them.
u/donkeyrocket · 11 pointsr/bicycling

I believe it is this one from Amazon. I spent a while researching options and drawing up potential plans to make my own before I ultimately decided to buy the two bike gravity mount. Only needs one drill hole and very little risk of it falling. For $45 I can put off a more artistic rack for a while. The thing is rock solid too with a road bike and cross bike on it.

Word of warning: if you order this and it doesn't come in the retailer's box inside the Amazon box send it back immediately and get a replacement. It is used and likely won't come together nicely.

u/-Agent-Smith- · 11 pointsr/wheredidthesodago

I own this (I didnt know it was an as seen on TV product). It's great since I live in a rental and cant put up bike racks. It also makes the space much more compact since it stores the bikes vertically. It cant handle heavy bikes, and it isnt sturdy so dont place it where itll be in the way. Here is the link for the one I bought since TV products are cheap. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XXSHGWR/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_sjjJBbF5M6ZN3

u/mranderson17 · 9 pointsr/whatisthisthing

Pretty sure it's the hanger part of this bike rack

EDIT: Here's a picture instead of an Amazon link

u/coswell · 9 pointsr/preppers

I installed hangman anti-tip kits (https://www.amazon.com/Hangman-Anti-Tip-Kit-Furniture-Prevention/dp/B000VW7WBC) in the three bookcases near my bed (I live in earthquake country).

u/eyeoutthere · 8 pointsr/bicycling

You can buy them on amazon as well (for twice the price). I have two of these:
http://www.amazon.com/Racor-PBH-1R-Ceiling-Mounted-Bike-Lift/dp/B00006JBL3/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1407096560&sr=8-1&keywords=racor+bike+lift&dpPl=1

...and one from HF. I would rather have yours, honestly. On mine:

  • The string is very low quality. I feel like it will need to be replaced after a couple of years.

  • The auto retention mechanics are sloppy and don't always work well.

  • Primarily, I don't like the hooks that the kit comes with. They don't hook securely to the seats on any of my bikes, and I have had them slide off while hoisting. I like the fact that yours clip on. I may modify mine to do that
u/xverity · 8 pointsr/bicycling

Sure! I don't remember what they're called but I found the shelves at the Container Store. For the bike rack I'm using this, which catches the front wheel. The rear tire has scuffed up the wall a bit, but Amazon sells trays you can mount to catch the wheel and avoid that. I was just too lazy to buy one.

u/buds1994 · 8 pointsr/bicycling
u/GeicoNotGecko · 8 pointsr/cycling

For my small apartment, I bought this off Amazon. It leans up against the wall and can be used as a bike stand for maintenance.

Edit: For $50 it's been great: amazon link

u/marcoaml78 · 8 pointsr/MTB

i live in a studio and i have 4 bikes on two of these https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B000ACAM38/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

My bikes are part of the deco, i made room specifically for them, people know i'm a cyclist and the bikes don't look the least bit off. No way i'd leave them anywhere else.

u/AlecSpaceLee · 8 pointsr/malelivingspace
u/RazzleThemAll · 7 pointsr/InteriorDesign

This is lovely, but your layout needs some work. That bike should be hung vertically in the inaccessible corner where the light wood end table is currently. http://www.amazon.com/Racor-B-1R-Solo-Vertical-Bike/dp/B0009I8ANM/ref=sr_1_1?s=hi&ie=UTF8&qid=1381846128&sr=1-1

I'd find a better solution for the TV and the couch. I like where the couch is currently, the TV should be on the long wall on an tilting wall mount so you can push it out to be across from the TV when in use and push it back when not, or leave it angled at the TV all the time. Either way, it will feel more cohesive. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/peerless-truvue-full-motion-tilting-wall-mount-for-most-22-37-flat-panel-tvs-black/8844925.p?id=1218911747388&skuId=8844925&ref=06&loc=01&ci_src=14110944&ci_sku=8844925&extensionType={adtype}:{network}&s_kwcid=PTC!pla!{keyword}!{matchtype}!{adwords_producttargetid}!{network}!{ifmobile:M}!{creative}&kpid=8844925&k_clickid=71b18fad-31d0-3968-eb9b-00006b13c787&gclid=CPLQu7iBmboCFQ-a4Aod_gEAFQ
You'll probably have to get rid of one of those recliners to make this work, as your living room is very narrow and long. I'd consider swapping out the recliner for the modern chair in the basement. That has more of the esthetic that you're going for. You have to work with what you have, my friend. As time and money permits, consider a left return sectional that can run along the long wall. That will keep the room open. Also, you need an area rug in the living room. That will define this space.
Lastly, a rule of thumb for hanging art is that it shouldn't be hung any higher than the door frame. There are, of course, exceptions to the rule, but I think that you're home would do well with following that idea. It keeps the items in the room connected and allows the viewer to actually see it. Your house is wonderful. Truly. You're young and you're catering to your lifestyle. Getting accolades in the interior design subreddit ain't easy. You're on your way.

u/mncoder · 7 pointsr/BeginnerWoodWorking

These work great. Literally had a dresser tip over once with someone hanging on it and it still didn't fall over.

https://www.amazon.com/Hangman-Anti-Tip-Kit-Furniture-Prevention/dp/B000VW7WBC

u/asphodelus · 7 pointsr/succulents

Here is my current (year-round) setup! I moved into a new apartment with only north and west facing windows, and nothing was getting enough light. So recently I upgraded my setup.

u/i_am_ms_greenjeans · 7 pointsr/guineapigs

If you're going to build your own C&C, look into purchasing grid shelving pieces:

https://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-Cube-Storage-Shelves-Black/dp/B0735CKD6R/ref=sr_1_3?crid=2YBR4Y0MRE9SJ&keywords=grid+shelves&qid=1564848724&s=gateway&sprefix=grid+shel%2Caps%2C162&sr=8-3

It's a lot cheaper to go this route. If the connector pieces are giving you troubles, use zipties. For the coroplast, you may be able to find it at your local big box store or try a local sign company (sometimes they'll even have a piece they can sell to you for a discount because it was used as a sign and is no longer needed). Check out YT on videos on how to cut the coroplast to make it work at the bottom of your cage.

Lastly, remember that building your own cage may take a few weeks to get it exactly the way you want it. If you are concerned that Spiro isn't getting enough move around time, just give him extra floor time so he can get the exercise he needs.

u/LincolnStein · 6 pointsr/buildapcsales

I have no idea why headphone stands are so expensive...

The cheapest and best looking option I have found for a headphone stand is using those Fast Track stands that are meant for hanging stuff up in the garage.

You can buy one here and here.

Here is a thread with pictures

I have a couple recommendations though. I cut up the plastic outer casing of a cd case to fit the width of the top railing. This gives it a nice curvature and supports the headphone band and foam better. It also doesn't leave indents on the foam. I glued the plastic to the stand and then got some spray paint and painted it black. It looks really nice. I have three stands.

I'm not at home, but can take pictures later if anyone wants to see what they look like.

u/CyclingFlux · 6 pointsr/NYCbike

I feel your pain. If I were in your shoes I’d sure as hell want to bring my bike into my apartment too.

I’ve got two bikes I switch between regularly, and recently got this from Amazon. It’s right against the wall just inside my apartment, so I can hang them up and take them down easily just as I’m coming and going.

Don’t worry about hanging your bike by the rim of a wheel. Unless your frame is made out of ultra dense material from a collapsed star and weighs a ton you’ll be fine. I wouldn’t discount a pulley system with the ceiling, even if it’s tall either. Installation would certainly be a pain, but worth it once you got it done. I’ve seen some innovative setups on YouTube, you can look there for some inspiration and brainstorming. It’s also possible you could make something just to fit your needs in a DIY project. Before I bought my rack I was contemplating following some instructions online to make one myself out of $50 or so of PVC pipe or wood from a hardware store. Good luck with whatever you choose.

u/grewapair · 6 pointsr/bikecommuting

A friend of mine gave me this bike stand, which leans against the wall at the top with a non-marking plastic piece and has non marking plastic feet. It has never fallen over or marked anything. The only problem is the handlebars will hit the wall, so I had to put fabric behind it.

It doubles as a repair stand for the top bike. But it doesn't have your storage, which I like a lot.

u/belloman · 6 pointsr/malelivingspace

This one

It just leans against the wall -- no drilling necessary.

u/Ace0fClub5 · 5 pointsr/bicycling

I got this pulley hanger and spray painted it white, and used this white parachute cord to give it more reach.

Works like a charm. I like to think of it as my "art" centerpiece.

u/whatthepoop · 5 pointsr/bicycling

The Racor bike lift is $25 and does a great job in apartments with high ceilings. I've got one installed in my tiny bungalow apt with a gabled ceiling and it's fantastic.

u/SkinnyHusky · 5 pointsr/boston

I know this isn't the answer you're looking for, but have you considered alternate methods for storing your bike(s) in the apartment? For example something like this

u/Low718 · 5 pointsr/bicycling

Would something like this work? Most don't even require drilling. Google gravity stand bike racks
http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B000077CPK/ref=psdcmw_165113011_t1_B000ACAM38

u/SolixTanaka · 5 pointsr/buildapc

For those with deskspace a Rubermaid Hose Hook. Ok ok so it's a $11 dollars, but it makes a cool, easyish to find in-store, affordable headphone/headset stand.

u/my_toesies · 5 pointsr/askportland

We've been happy with this one: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000ACAM38/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_USLpyb9PP30V0. Only complaint is it rubs paint off the wall if you aren't careful. Super easy to use and always moveable if you have a different spot in mind

u/r0rsch4ch · 5 pointsr/NYCbike

I suggest getting some kind of bike rack for the apartment in the future. My wife and I live in a small 1 bedroom apartment and manage to store 2 full size bikes on one. I hope you find it. Anything left outside will be stolen/vandalized given enough time.

u/The_Wee · 5 pointsr/malelivingspace

Maybe something like Delta Cycle Michelangelo https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000ACAM38/

u/mgromer · 5 pointsr/MTB

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000FIE4WC/

Compression post stand. Love it so far, looks pretty badass! The bike on top is no doubt heavier than my Stumpy, and the stand is holding everything fine.

Edit: for size reference, my Stumpjumper is an XL.

u/octopushug · 5 pointsr/succulents

I have the following setup:

u/davotron2084 · 5 pointsr/GalaxysEdge
u/ello_govna · 4 pointsr/Bikeporn

Agreed. Very simple. Worth the money. I can vouch for this model.

Given the chance, it'll stand on it's own fully loaded.

u/thamoore · 4 pointsr/bikecommuting

Im a big fan of the Delta Cycle 2 bike stand.

For the third, you may just go with a hook to store it vertically.

u/FalseEEngineer · 4 pointsr/bicycling

7 is an excellent option for an apartment, but I would disagree with that article's statement of relying entirely on gravity. It includes one anchor and screw to keep it from tilting while loading/unloading.

My apartment setup

$55 on Amazon

u/Obvious666 · 4 pointsr/MTB

Oh ok, what about something like this?

u/porksmash · 4 pointsr/bicycling

A couple weeks ago I wanted to do the same (but without making holes in the wall) and picked up this: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000ACAM38/

u/ddunlop · 4 pointsr/bicycling

I use this stand - which actually doesn't hurt the walls very much.

http://amzn.com/B000ACAM38

u/dungeonsandderp · 4 pointsr/bicycling

I can't touch my walls in my apartment, so I use one of these. It's a tension-pole you mount between the floor and ceiling; it's quite sturdy as long as you find a ceiling joist. If you have the space you can even mount if farther from the wall and, with extra brackets, hold up to four bikes.

u/happybadger · 4 pointsr/MushroomGrowers

What's the weight limit on those shelves? With a single sawdust bag or straw bucket weighing so much I ended up going for this shelf, rated at 350lbs/158kg per shelf, with this cover. The top two shelves on the inside have an additional layer of plastic sheeting to use as a high humidity fruiting chamber, and when I buy another shelf the whole thing will serve as one. The only drawback to it is that straw bags are too bulky, but I've got six sawdust colonies/two straw buckets/a log/a dozen or so grain spawns/two LCs/my agar stuff and still have like 40% of the space left.

u/ButterSlider · 4 pointsr/malelivingspace

How about a stand like this one?. If you go on /r/bicycling someone just shared theirs and it looks great. With tall ceilings you could even get three bikes on there, with the least used one up top but other two easily accessible.

Another option is something like these which would still keep them easy to access but out of the way.

Edit:I realise your ceilings are probably too tall for the first link but they also sell the same concept that you can kinda mount to the wall on one end, rather than relying on ceiling.

u/Ecliptus · 4 pointsr/guineapigs

They are a great pets, and they force more vegetables into your life!

1. Yes! In some countries its actually considered animal cruelty to only have one pig.. It is mainly because they are prey animals and having a pair is the only way to maintain a sense of safety that allows them to get comfortable in the enviroment, thats why if youve had a pair for a long time and one dies the living one usually will do ok with just a ton of attention and love from the owner.

2. They do not "need" them. That said remember pigs are prey animals and they WILL attempt to hide all sickness/injury from you, so they dont get eaten.

3. Here are a few things I didnt know right away..

  • They need hay to help digest by breaking up food in the stomach. They have no limit on how much hay they can eat.
  • They are one of the only other animals that can get scurvy from a lack of vitamin C like humans. Putting it in the water bottle is only ok if you change the water daily, and thats a big waste. So I gave mine a dab on some cucumber as a treat and they loved it! You should also look for a pellet brand that has vitamin C in it to help supplement.
  • If you want to potty train them keep in mind they are bashful and would rather do the business under cover(warning they will eat there own poop sometimes, to digest it twice..). Also using some soiled paper scraps from the last cage cleaning when placing new bedding down is a good way at the beginning to help show them were the poop area is.
  • Save yourself a huge headache and get two from the same group at the same time. Introducing pigs from different groups can work but it can also turn into a headache quickly if they dont hit it off.
  • Pigs have a very interesting diet.. They cannot eat iceberg lettuce because it has to much water in it. Red/Green/Romaine will be your base and things like spinach/brocoli/carrots/green peppers/berries/grapes/etc.. will be your once/twice a week treat depending on what the pigs like. They will also need daily rations of hay and pellets. Bringing in an occasional handful of wild grass is also a nice treat from time to time, just try to be sure its not sprayed with anything.. It can stack up quick so try to use food you would also eat haha!
  • Guinea pigs can be loud when they are happy and annoying when they are hungry.. Be ready for a fuzzie chirper!
  • They also poo and pee ALOT.. so be ready to do half week poop scoops and once a week full cage cleans if you wanna keep the "farm" smell at bay.. Its a great way to use old clothes though, get a few washes and when they get to bad just toss them in the trash! Fleece blankets make a great top layer for both being easily cleaned and pretty absorbable.
  • Making a cage is as easy as getting a grid shelves from basically any store that sells home goods. Some zip ties, and some coroplast from anywere that makes signs. You wont regret making one yourself as the cages you can buy are more suited as travel cages and are usually not big enough for a pig let alone two to be happy. Also note that pigs will prefer to be as close to hip/chest level as possible so they can see whats going on/not feel the ground vibrate every time you walk(they are totally fine on the ground though, just more skittish).
  • When you are settling one in it helps to let it smell your hand while doing other things like giving hay, treats, pets, or even just leaving it in the cage doing nothing. You want the pigs to associate your smell with more than just being picked up. It will also take awhile for this to happen they are very nervous by nature and take awhile to get use to new situations.
  • They sleep with eyes open.. Yep.. Thats to help with the not being eaten thing.. Eventually when they get comfortable they will start sleeping with eyes closed, thats when you know they really feel safe.
  • The ideal temperature for pigs is 65-75 degrees. They dont do well with prolonged direct sunlight or humidity. But they do enjoy sunshine!
  • Guinea Pigs can see color! It helps to maintain mental stimulation by occasionally changing the colors around the cage a bit.. Youd get bored living in the same room your whole life wouldn't you?
  • They need outside of cage time at least once a week, but ideally whenever you get a chance. This time can be them just running around in circles in a slightly bigger and more open space with you monitoring and having made the space safe. Or it could be the pig being bundled up in a blanket while you watch a show or something on the couch. All that matters is the pig is outside of the cage and you are interacting with it! The key though is to listen to when they are ready to go back.. Like I said they are bashfull by nature and do want to poop/pee on you and or out in the open. They will attempt to make it known via uncomfortable shifting and tiny squeaks.. Like a kid that has to pee.. If you miss the signs, well.. They tried! It is also usually a good point for outside time to end.

    edit A few more thing i remembered..

  • Make sure you get two of everything so there is less reason to fight.. two houses two food bowls, two water bottles..
  • Pigs need something made of wood, be it toy or house to chew on occasionally to help keep teeth growth at bay.
  • Trimming nails can be a pain in the butt.. It HAS to be done though so make sure you look into how its done before trying. When in doubt use a flashlight to help find were the quip ends and the nail starts so you dont cut to deep. If you do cut deep, dont panic! Use cornstarch to stop the bleeding as it wont hurt them if they eat it off later.
  • When washing(rarely!) make sure you dont get water on the head/in the ears as it can lead to serious problems for the pig.
  • The grossest thing I learned is as pigs get really old they can get clogged butts from soft poop+weak butt muscles from age.. So.. Thats a fun one to look forward to!

    Wow jeez... Im sure there is more but at this point i dont wanna get auto mod banned for spam or something haha.. Good luck!

Heh, did you know you can buy one of these for $20?

https://www.amazon.com/Racor-PBH-1R-Ceiling-Mounted-Bike-Lift/dp/B00006JBL3

u/c0nsumer · 3 pointsr/MTB

Read up on the drywall anchors. They are probably rated for 50 pounds pulling straight down the wall, perpendicular to the anchor. You're going to be applying quite a bit of pulling out force. See what they are rated for with that. This may be listed on the anchor package for something like ceiling mount for hanging a plant.

You'll probably want a toggle bolt instead, as they have a higher pullout force. Look up the sort of thing done for hanging shelving and you'll see.

It may just be better for you, if possible, to get a wall rack that puts most of its load into the floor, like this one.

u/The_High_Life · 3 pointsr/bicycling

I've been using this one for the past 5 years. Looks good, works good, price is right.

u/tacet · 3 pointsr/bicycling

I have a gravity rack and it is AWESOME! No need to drill holes in the wall or worry about structural integrity.

u/basidia · 3 pointsr/ladycyclists

I have this gravity stand from Amazon. I don't have a convenient stud to secure it to so it is currently freestanding. It allows you to spin the wheels on both bikes. It's too awkward for our commuter bikes since the rear racks screw up the weight distribution, but it works just fine for the road bikes.

u/RBMcMurphy · 3 pointsr/maker

I’d think you’d want something like thiscable lift . Don’t see any reason you couldn’t fix a DC motor to something like that, although of course you’ll need to figure out your torque/gearing requirements.

I wouldn’t recommend the all-thread approach, for a few reasons. First, all-thread is readily available but generally makes a poor leadscrew. Purpose-made leadscrews can be fairly expensive, and you’re talking about (presumably) 4 fairly long ones. Next, any kind of lead screw solution will require lubrication, which will quickly result in grease all over you, your bed, your van, etc., in addition to an extra maintenance item. Thirdly, you have to worry about keeping your 4 corners leveled, which requires coordinating multiple lead screws. Do you have multiple motors? Or are you going to run a belt drive from 1 motor to all 4 screws? Messy. Lastly, the screws would reduce your space savings, since they are always in place. With an overhead hoist, there’s no lost footprint when the bed is fully raised.

EDIT: The first thing you want to do, as in do this right now, is find the serial numbers of your bikes and record that information. This will be critical in the event that your bike is stolen.

*****

So for starters, you'll probably want two locks. A big, heavy U-bolt, as well as a cable/chain lock that you can put through the wheels. Ideally the cable/chain would have its own lock. Avoid those integrated rotary locks; they are shit. Here's an interesting guide testing the safety of a few popular models.

  1. Pick the right thing to lock to. This seems obvious but a lot of people screw it up anyway. If you can lift your locked bike off of it, don't lock it there. (example 1, example 2.) Avoid street signs for this reason. Also, check to make sure that the object you're locking to is secured to the ground. Sometimes thieves will lay traps that look like good places to lock, but then they just pluck the trap off the ground and take the bike with them to remove the lock later. (example 1, example 2.) Other times, thieves will saw through a rack and then hide the gap with a piece of tape.

  2. Always put your strongest lock through the frame. Your wheels are removable and much less valuable than the rest of your bicycle put together.

  3. Always lock your wheels. Ideally you can put your U-lock through the frame as well as one of the wheels. That's particularly a good idea because it eats up empty space within the lock, which makes the lock harder to break or cut without breaking or cutting your bicycle. But even then, you'll have an unlocked wheel. Use your secondary lock to go through that wheel. If possible, also put your secondary lock through the frame and also lock it to the object you're locking to.

  4. Have your bike exposed for as little time as possible. If you can have your bike inside, do so. For one thing, this prevents damage to your drivetrain if it rains. For another, your bike won't be stolen. I use something like this to store my bikes in my apartment.

    The theme of locking your bike is to make it too much of a bother to deal with. You can't make it impossible for your bike to be stolen, but you can make it hard enough that nobody will care. This framework also means it's a good idea to never leave a super-expensive bike unoccupied, ever. Your bikes look fine for general commuting/locking, though.

u/photo1kjb · 3 pointsr/bicycling

That looks pretty cool. For those who need a two-bike stand, I just installed this guy. It's not free-standing as it needs a wall to lean on, but as long as you're not drunkenly stumbling by it 24/7, it doesn't need to be bolted into anything. It does have a small safety strap for those drunkards out there. :)

u/daisy1975 · 3 pointsr/succulents

I bought a 3-tiered shelf and two growlights (2ft T5 24W 2000 lumen). The kit is great and came with everything needed to hang it easily on the shelf. This setup is in my sunroom which gets direct sunlight part of the day and a lot of bright indirect sunlight the rest of the day. Regardless my plants become etiolated if not directly by the window. Also all the colorful succulents I got have reverted back to green which I hope I can fix by incorporating grow lights.

My question is should I use two growlights or is one 2ft bulb enough for the shelf which is roughly 1ft x2ft? Also should I lower the amount of time I have the grow lights on since this room gets natural light? Please let me know if I should change anything. Thank you!

u/thedreamvillian · 3 pointsr/bicycling
u/Alward73 · 3 pointsr/Super73
u/Bcron · 3 pointsr/bicycling

Here it is, exact model, my only gripes with it are that any under-seat bags need to be removed in order to have enough seat tube to properly seat it, and that the front wheel needs to be secured to the downtube with a velcro strap. Adds about 30 seconds to the process of storing the bike.

Others haven't had luck with fenders or rear racks- you'd have to eyeball your fender to see if it'd be clear, since the rear wheel rests on the frame at the 3 o'clock position, and I haven't had trouble with a rear rack (my bike is size 51 so that might be why).

I should also add that I haven't had any stability issues - the bike might wobble if you bump it as it's resting on a round tire and it's top heavy, but I've never had any issue with the bike actually falling over, even when I'm removing the chain and derailleur cage for cleaning.

The 'customers also purchased' links from that item have other designs of vertical floor stands worth considering, some that secure by the front wheel which makes the added step of securing the front wheel unnecessary.

u/Cat_Man_Dew · 3 pointsr/simpleliving

You caught me; I guess I do own one more bike accessory. I am living in a studio apartment, and this allows the bike to stand upright in one of the corners.

u/valiantdistraction · 3 pointsr/ragdolls
  1. If you're getting two, not an issue. If you just get one, make sure to have plenty of toys it likes to play with on its own.

  2. My cats haven't ever gone after my cables. Once in a while they'll take a nip at one but they've never even left tooth marks. May vary by cat. I used to have a rabbit though and she chewed through everything. They make cable covers you can find at pet stores and online (try to get the unscented ones as the scented ones are offensive to people as well as animals). If you have an area with a lot of cords (desk, tv area) you may want to temporarily fence it off (more on that later).

  3. You don't need a huge one to start out with. Basically any one from the pet store will do. Ask the breeder what kind of litter they're using and start out with that kind. Usually for two cats you want at least two litter boxes. Most people keep them in the bathroom.

  4. TOYS. MANY TOYS. Cat teasers/cat dancers, feather toys, the thing that's a captive ball on a track, sparkle balls, kicker toys, etc. Also of course scratchers - I'd get a flat cardboard scratcher (they're on amazon for like $5 as an add-on item) and also a tall sisal post, just so you can see which one they like more, then buy more of that kind.

    Health and grooming-wise - nail clippers, pet shampoo, a blow-dryer if you don't have one (it's best to blow-dry them after bathing them), pet-safe wet wipes, tiny kitty toothbrushes and pet toothpaste, metal grooming comb, flea comb (not for fleas, just because their fur is so fine it really does a better job imo than the regular comb), Revolution for flea and heartworm treatment (you get it from your vet, so when you take them in right after you get them be sure to ask about it).

    A baby gate if you have anywhere you need to keep them confined. Be aware that they'll initially be small enough to go through the pet gates with the vertical slats, so a grid gate works better.

    Fencing supplies if there is anything you may need to fence off until you have a handle on the cats' behavior - cords, under the bed, etc. So what you do is you get zip ties and wire storage crates like these: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B0735CKD6R/ and then instead of using the corner clips to make cubes, you just zip tie them together into a fence. You can use command hooks to attach the fence where you need it to go. It's not attractive but it's good for a temporary solution.

    5 Five. (WHY does it keep starting me back at 1? Is there a secret to making the list continue with 5?) Kids like to do a lot of things to pets that pets don't necessarily want done to them. Ragdolls are very docile and won't fight back, but they may start to become unhappy and hide a lot or be unsociable. I've seen plenty of Ragdolls returned to the breeder or given up for adoption for this reason. Most cats will give a good whack if someone for instance pulls their tail, but a Ragdoll won't. It's a benefit in many ways but if you have a situation where the cat is getting harassed it's very distressing to the cat since they don't know how to respond. The only time my older cat has ever hissed or growled at me was when his leg was injured, and he's never hit or scratched me, and my kitten has only hissed and hit me (claws in) when I trimmed his claws and nipped the quick. So you need to be really on top of helping your child understand the cats' personal space and body language and learning to interact with them in ways that are not overwhelming and scary to the cats.

    Fortunately, Ragdolls are people-loving and very social, so it'll be easy to have your daughter play with cat dancers, throw balls for them, etc, and pet and cuddle them and interact a lot with them. And mine are both totally fine with wearing clothes - the kitten ripped his tshirt off the first time I put it on him but all this weekend I had him in a pumpkin costume and he was fine with it. So you might want to pick up some small cat clothes if that is something that would delight your daughter. They're not too into hats but shirts without sleeves are great.

I hung my tandem right in my dining room with one of these. My wife hated it, which made me like it even more. I screwed a board to the ceiling studs, then screwed the pulleys onto the board so I wouldn't have to worry about spacing. Make sure you're lifting by something sturdy like a rear rack, brake bridge, or the handle bars. Don't use the back of the saddle, as it might get pulled loose from the seat rails. I lost a tandem off a wall mount once, and it cost me a TV.

I used a Gladiator Gear Track wall channel for the half bikes. It's a bit pricier than the above setup, but allowed me to store 6 bikes on a 12 foot wall. Pro tip: measure the height of your longest single, and mount the track an inch or two above that. You want your bikes to hang, but you don't want to lift them more than a foot or so to catch the wheel hook. Also, if you're putting them on a finished wall, I would mount the track on a board. The four foot lengths will accentuate any irregularities in your walls. If you don't want to repaint, I would run another board along the bottom for the tires to rub on. Wet tires will pull off paint once they're dry.

I always hung the suspension MTBs facing down. This way, you don't introduce air bubbles into the brake lines, and your fork juice stays at the bottom where it should. Road bikes facing up, MTBs facing down.

I know it looks wonky, but really I have one free standing in my garage with a 62 Steel Raleigh 3 Speed on the top part and while it does lean out some, it has been up for well over a year. That includes fumbling the bike around hanging it up and taking it down (damn thing is heavy), using it as a make-shift stand for tire changes, and just getting banged around.

u/sigismond0 · 2 pointsr/bicycling

Absolutely, and you have a couple of options. First is a wall stand like this:

http://www.amazon.com/Racor-PLB-2R-Two-Bike-Gravity-Freestanding/dp/B000077CPK/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1367802540&sr=8-1&keywords=racor+gravity

Only needs one non-load-bearing screw at the top to prevent it wobbling, not too expensive, very sturdy. I have two of these at home.

Option two is something like this:

http://www.formulafoto.com/bikes/quiver.jpg

You can screw that into the studs in your wall and hang each bike with only two small holes.

Option three is to use the same type of hanger along with good quality drywall anchors:

http://www.lemurzone.com/rfg/wp-content/uploads/walldriller.jpg

Those will let you have ~50lbs without needing studs, but they leave slightly larger holes. Nothing that can't be taken care of with a bit of spackling when you move out though, and this has the upside of being able to put them wherever you want instead of just where studs are.

u/D0rk4L · 2 pointsr/bicycling
u/alialkhatib · 2 pointsr/cycling

you have a lot of options, but they all boil down to the question of whether you want to store your bike horizontally (e.g. holding the bike up by the top tube, like with this mount), or vertically (usually holding the bike by the front wheel, like this mount).

i prefer vertical mounts because they take less wall space, but it means stuff might tumble out of my saddle bag or panniers if i leave things in them when i mount my bike. i've gotten in the habit of removing these bags on my way into my apartment, but once in a while i forget. but horizontal mounts take up a relatively enormous amount of wall space. on the other hand, if you're proud of your bike, it can be a nice way to show it off i guess.

i use the vertical mount i linked above for my apartment, but my office has this track thing with some hooks and we can hold up 3 bikes in the 48" track (with the middle big upside down to avoid the handlebars knocking into each other). they're all pretty great, and i have no complaints except that you'll want to figure out what to do to protect the wall from the wheels sooner rather than later. even relatively smooth tires will start eating up the wall where they rest, if they're there without any protection.

there are also more aesthetically themed mounts both on the horizontal and vertical sides of things. i tend to prefer understated kind of industrial looks, though, so the white metal hook really pleased me and i didn't save links to other products i saw.

the major takeaway is (i hope) that you have tons of dimensions to work out, and most of them are personal preference. if you don't have any wall space, then horizontal mounts might be out of the question, but beyond those sorts of things, as long as you have a stud you can mount just about whatever you want. road bikes aren't very heavy, and the load they put on a properly installed wall mount almost certainly won't be a problem.

so just look for something you like that has a good handful of believable reviews (there are chrome extensions and stuff that can analyze reviews for false reviews, which is unfortunately a thing). you can also find really inventive designs on etsy and stuff, which will give you inspiration for what qualities to look for (material, size, color, etc...) if nothing else.

u/skelengtonsex · 2 pointsr/bicycling

This is what I bought for my apt. I would thing the difference in prices is from aesthetics and overall size of the rack. This gravity stand takes up less floor space and is less industrial looking then the one in your picture. Which could account for the higher price tag. I have one carbon bike on there now and it could easily hold another.

I'm sure that most all of them will work regardless of price. With multiple carbon bikes on a free standing rack I would look at the reviews to see if others have done the same.

For the ceiling mounted models, I would be less worried about the deposit and more worried about what your ceiling is made of. If you live in an older building, ceiling mounts can be a great way to pull your entire ceiling down. You definitely won't get your deposit back if that happens.

Its so you don't have to put screws through the furniture. They work by providing an anchor to counteract any force pulling from the other side. A child climbing a bookshelf is going to be pulling it away from the wall. However, the outward force exerted at the top isn't huge so a well secured velcro strap is strong enough to prevent the tipover. Just make sure it hits a stud on the wall side and you're good to go.

They also make other kinds if you want something more heavy duty.

Guaranteed if you have a lot of dishes, there are some you really never use. Pack those up and put them in storage somewhere, that way you are not throwing them away, if the wife is worried about that. You don't need 24 coffee cups, or bowls, for 3 people for daily use. Put stuff you only use once a year (christmas turkey roasting pan) in a plastic tote, and put it in the garage or basement. Better yet, if you have a kid who will be moving out in the next few years, start putting extra items in a tote for them to take when they move.

I recently moved, and like a nerd I mapped out my kitchen cupboards before I unpacked. Having things where you need them makes putting them away and finding them so much easier. Keep the coffee cups close to the coffee maker, the glasses near the sink, the spices close to the stove.

I just put THIS tutorial up. It can be made for under $50 if you have a drill at home & a way to cut wood at store or in home. If you're on a budget just get a Wire Shelf Rack, stick everything on a table w/ cards on top of rack & call it a day. If you have pets though they can easily knock the cards over so I'd go with a milk crate or something more substantial.

Pretty easy and straight forward. Very easy to set up. I had built a wood rack but felt this would be easier and more upgradable. It takes up very little room and it adjustable without cutting a single thing! Just check the dimensions for what will suit your needs. Mine is 36" wide and accommodates 2x systems on top and possibly 2x more systems on the bottom. Here are some links for the part links below. I went with the black one since it had a lower chance of conductivity. I made sure to put some fitting cardboard under the mobo just in case. I used twisty ties to hold the cards up which worked great. Could use some thing Zip-Ties if you know how you want it and can leave it. I had to move mine around a bit so the twisty ties were easier.

We bought a tall rack (like this) to house the terrarium for our beardie, but we also have a ball python, so we needed some extra space. We keep the bugs on the top most rack. We mostly feed dubia roaches, so there is a lot less noise. We do however have a cricket keeper similar to the one you are describing and have kept small to large crickets in there with none escaping on their own. However, I've had several escape while getting them out to feed and didn't realize they escaped until later.

As far as taking the remaining insects out of the tank - we never really did find a solve for this while feeding in the tank. It was always a pain to get all of the tank decorations out to find them all. What we did end up doing was purchasing a long shallow plastic tote to feed her in. We lined it with the same carpet that is in her tank (for traction). It took her a couple of days to get used to being fed outside of her enclosure, but she eventually got the idea and has not problem eating in it. I'm sure people have some comments about feeding outside the enclosure, but it works for us and it makes the clean up go so smoothly.

As a seller I make sure I am fully stocked and organized with all the appropriate packaging so when I do make a sale I can quickly wrap it and mail it out. I purchased all of my supplies from Amazon! I use pink tissues paper, patterned poly mailers and thank you cards from Amazon and they basically have paid for themselves. I also purchased a shelving unit from amazon that I have all my tissue and boxes and mailers stocked on to keep everything organized! I just like to have my items folded and wrapped in tissue to keep them protected and I think a thank you note is a very sweet and easy gesture. I also buy on Poshmark and am sometimes a bit grossed out when I receive an item that is not wrapped in tissue or wrapping at all and I receive it all wrinkled. I constantly order clothing online and most retailers always wrap the items inside the poly mailers, I just think of it as standard. Hope this helps!

I have shelves, toolbox, and workbench along all of the walls that can fit them. Problem is, if I build along the sides of the garage then there isn't enough room to open the car doors (garage is pretty narrow for a 2-car). It's already pretty tight along the sides with lawn mower, roto-tiller, air compressor, etc. I do need to install pegboard over my work bench to hang tools, that will help free up a bit of space that I could then build some small shelves or drawers for smaller items.

I've seen the bike racks that go into the wall and actually used them at our previous house, I may have to take a trip to the hardware store and take a look. I also just found this for the bikes, I may try it out - may make for good winter storage at least.

However, despite all the good reviews, I've had mixed feelings about it. My bike seems to be significantly heavier on one side, so more weight is on one of the hooks than the other. I'm a little worried it's going to snap one day.

Apart from that, I've been pretty happy with it and you can even hang two bikes on it if you want.

I was in your position once, though I had a folding bike with a flatbar (so essentially a hybrid that folds). As someone mentioned below, getting Ergon grips with barends does at least get you a second hand position, but frankly, it looks like you've explored all the options and none are particularly exceptional. One of the additional costs to consider in conversion (in addition to the drop bar and brifters) is that the hybrid-style v-brakes are incompatible with brifters, and you either have to get road-style caliper brakes (best) or an adapter (look for a "travel agent"), which some say cause some sponginess or lack of feel in braking.

Anyway, I wouldn't say that someone that logs 100+ miles a week (20x3+40) is a "casual" rider, and I discovered that after doing a century ride, I felt the "versatility" of the upright, flatbar hybrid position was too limiting. It's a shame you have such a nice hybrid bike--frankly, I'm disappointed in the bike industry's push to get people onto hybrids, in my jaded view, they are simply a case of "jack of all trades, master of none" and the so-called "versatility" is just another word to sell bikes to people who are initially put off by the idea of lycra-clad roadies. Road bikes come in all kinds of geometries these days, and there are some pretty relaxed geometry bikes (they call them "endurance" these days) which should really be what's sold to the more "casual" rider instead of hybrids.

Anyway again, I sympathize with your apartment lifestyle... I ended up sucking it up and getting a real road bike after deciding that I like biking enough and I wanted to commit to it as a positive lifestyle/fitness change. Thankfully, since the other bike is a folding bike, the space addition wasn't huge. Maybe the solution instead is a really nice two bicycle rack :)

u/NamesTwister · 1 pointr/homeassistant

I considered flashing lights in the garage but I'm scared I'll just ignore them or not notice them, only one (potentially expensive) way to find out haha.

As for multiple users, I think that's a minor issue right now. It's a detached one car garage that is strictly used to store a car.

The bike stand in my house is a gravity stand. I guess I could potentially put a load cell between the contact point on the wall. I think it would need to be pretty sensitive. I don't think a lot of pressure gets put on that contact point from a road bike. I haven't been able to think of a good way to do a load sensor for this type of bike stand.

The shiny metal is a purchase: http://www.amazon.com/Delta-Michelangelo-Two-Bike-Gravity-Stand/dp/B000ACAM38/ref=sr_1_12?ie=UTF8&qid=1373442187&sr=8-12

I DIY'd a painted wood board and mounted matching hooks to get the bikes as they are in the photo. It's fairly cheap and easy. If you move a lot then the setup is also very convenient because no damage is done to the wall.

It's a 2 bedroom apartment shared with my wife. We both have beds so one will be used as our bedroom and one as a guest room. The apartment is fairly large with an open living room & dining room space. We have a fairly small couch, entertainment center and dining room table. We won't have a garage or outside storage. Hope that helps a little better. I was looking at the this stand but not sure I want to have 3 or 4 of them.

This off-brand 2-bike gravity rack: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000ACAM38/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o06_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Holds both of my bikes securely, was very cheap, and no marks on the walls. My landlady likes it so much that after seeing mine, she has started providing them to all of her tenants with bikes.

u/nicetriangle · 1 pointr/seattlebike

Those lean against the wall style bike hangers work better than I expected they would. We keep both our bikes in the entryway to our apartment and they barely occupy any space.

We got this one for $50.

I have this support to store our bikes. It's quite adjustable. https://www.amazon.com/Topeak-Dual-Touch-Storage-Stand/dp/B000FIE4WC

I set it up so the bikes don't quite touch the walls, and I drape a towel over the cassette, just in case. It's held by tension between ceiling and floor, so no need to drill anything either!

u/mccrolly · 1 pointr/bicycling

You know, I've been searching for a solution for the exact same problem. The best I've come up with is something like this or something like this and moutning it high up on the wall near the ceiling. Neither one is a ideal solution. Right now are bikes are next to our bed. I'm interested to see what other people may post in here.

u/AWildColin · 1 pointr/washingtondc

Yeah, I'm not leaving my rides outside. The only person with access to my room is me (and the landlord). I have one of these to keep them inside. Expensive, but totally worth it.

u/freeradicalx · 1 pointr/NYCbike

I've got one of these, it's a piece of shit but it gets the job done. You can move it around fairly easily but it needs a solid ceiling to push against as part of it's support.

u/orwell · 1 pointr/bicycling

I have two of these in my apartment and they work great:

Looking for some advice about using furniture/appliance anchor like this:
https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B000VW7WBC

For example, using this kit, I can find a stud and attach one of the anchors to it. However, I'm afraid depending on what I want to anchor, like a refrigerator, I may not be able to find a place to drill the other anchor into it.

In this situation, would it be wise to use an adhesive like VHB tape or maybe something like PR100 super glue to attach the other anchor? I need this anchor to hold up in an earthquake situation. Thanks in advance to anyone who can provide feedback!

u/MochaSlush · 1 pointr/CleaningTips

Since you can't put the books standing up vertically, try stacking them horizontally but still organize by size so they're mostly in neat columns.

You would want to put trinkets and misc items in their own containers, where related items all go in the same bin, but laid out in a way so you can see all of them and access all of them without having to move things--so not just one box with stuff stacked up it in randomly, unless you absolutely can't avoid doing so (sometimes, throwing shit in a box is really the only thing you can do haha). I find trays (like the lid of a shoebox, for example of height) instead of boxes to be best for this. Trays would be a great set up for you, since you said your shelves are deep but not tall.

To maximize the amount of space you have, you can add mini shelving within a shelf. So for example, on that top shelf, I can see you have a mug or cup of some kind. You could fit tiny shelf there, something that stands on its own, like this, so you'd have the cup where it is now alongside some other stuff, and then on top of it you could place more cups or a tray of other stuff.

You can get trays from the dollar store, use a shoebox lid, or even just cut the bottom of a tissue box off. All my trays are basically the lids for "memory boxes" I got from Michael's. I use the boxes themselves as closet organizers.

u/gordo1223 · 1 pointr/Reprap

If I were you, I would start with an ord bot rather than an I3. I have both, and the ord frame is much more rigid and easier to upgrade.

there used to be a 300x300mm heated bed from punacatt. From what I recall, it needed its own power supply. People built several 12"x12" ord bots by just swapping out two of the makerslide sections and one regular extrusion section.

If you look at the very large builds online (24"+), you'll see that most don't use a heated bed and have an enclosed build volume instead.

What I did was take a steel shelving unit and enclose the level that has my printer on it.

u/burn1nat0r · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

I use this here. I didn't stack them though, so I have the 2 halves side by side like this.. It's really nice to have the surface for brewing and tinkering around in the garage. You could get 2 and have a high shelf if you wanted as well.

u/Frankie__Spankie · 1 pointr/Flipping

Heh, they have the same shelves on Amazon for about the same price here:

There's a few different options for sizes. I only have one in my closet and that's all I have space for. I would love to get another one because it's usually full but I don't have much room for a second. I want to expand my inventory. There are plenty of things I see that I'd like to buy but I know I don't have the space for it all. :(

u/TheDarkHorse83 · 1 pointr/AskMen

Ah, ok. My big batch (5g) brewing is on LPG. I have a 3-Shelf Gorilla Shelf (thanks, Craigslist) that I set up a tear down on brew day. Both burners have stands, and it sets up a nice little, collapsible, 3-tier system.

My smaller batches (1-2g) I do on the stove top, and as you said, extra hands would just get in the way.

u/_slickrick · 1 pointr/malelivingspace

They look like they're just garage shelving painted black. Something similar to this with black shelves. Actually pretty cost effective and very good looking.

These in particular are really cool because you break them in half to do a double wide half height set up.

u/SplAgentLundy23 · 1 pointr/houseplants

I got this shelf and these lights. I used the zip ties to attach them to the shelves, and put the top one on the ceiling above the shelf with the sticky pads, it also comes with screws.

u/Dr-Vader · 1 pointr/Flipping

premanufactured shelving units (as opposed to building your own). what brands / models can you vouch for? I've searched r/flipping's history for this question and couldn't find much.

I like this quality, but I like this price.

u/FGND · 1 pointr/EtherMining

Getting 10"x15" bags for around $0.10-$0.12 a piece shipped is really nice. That is as big as you can go in the VP215.

This is the "base" chamber model. Unfortunately it has a dry piston engine which can wear out faster and does need to cool down. Pros: it is cheaper and weighs only 46 lbs and requires no maintenance. Cons: can't replace motor parts and it draws slightly less vacuum, it is fairly loud and might require cool down time due to the motor.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pqyjdfHh03c

I think this is about the cheapest place for it. https://www.webstaurantstore.com/ary-vacmaster-vp112s-chamber-vacuum-sealer/120VMASVP112.html

I have the VP215 which is the base home commercial unit. The same website linked above usually has the best price on it. Pros are you can replace parts that break, it even comes with the items to repair the seal bar if it burns out or breaks. Seal bar on a foodsaver breaks you have to buy an entire new sealer. It uses an oil pump which draws a higher vacuum and is a lot quieter than food savers and the 112S model.

The cons are it is a heavy unit. It weighs 84 lbs and needs 2 feet of height to fully lift the lid. The oil in the pump also needs to be changed after the first 25 bags or so to get manufacturing crap out and then every 600-800 bags thereafter.

To get around the weight I ordered a small rolling cart from amazon. This is it, cheap and the perfect size. https://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-3-Shelf-Shelving-Unit-Wheels/dp/B01LZAV8KH I suggest putting a thin piece of plywood or a sheet of cardboard on the top shelf to support the feet of the unit.

There are of course other brands out there, but these are the ones I researched and know about.

u/GrainsOfSalt2019 · 1 pointr/konmari

Not sure if this is an option for you but I have limited storage space in kitchen so I got something like this (they have different sizes) and I got large containers with lids to insert into some of the shelves, inside the containers you can store the glass containers.

Can't really beat a baker's rack even though it's overkill. The shelves are sturdy enough to hold supplies as well.

u/serissime · 1 pointr/Cooking

If you are able/allowed, you could install pull out basket/"drawers". I use a coat closet for my pantry now and have a big lightweight plastic basket on the highest shelf storing seldom used paper good items. I also have some modular stacking basket shelf units because the coat closet only had the one upper shelf. (Like this, this, and this.)

I used to have a fixed pantry like yours though, and I mostly organized via baskets (see above), Rubbermaid dry storage, and things like this and this. Plastic bags and foil and stuff, I kept on a skinny laundry/pantry cart tucked in a weird nook in my kitchen. Now I keep those in a cabinet I don't have another use for.

I also have a few organizing basket things from IKEA, look online at their storage systems. Fixed pantries can be hard, get out your measuring tape and good luck!

u/im-mundt · 1 pointr/hockeyplayers

Can you set up a small rack/storage shelves? Most gear will fit on there and you can use hangers on them too.

How many and how big are the cactus you're talking about here? Because I have this 300W light, the only light my plants get, and they're doing amazing with wonderful stress coloring. I only have one 2x1 ft metal shelf with the light sitting on top and the second shelf full of my plants.

The Philzon looks like a wonderful growlight, too! Really powerful. And for that price? like damn! I'd go with that one.

https://www.amazon.com/RAD-Cycle-Woody-Bike-Rack/dp/B01MXZZ87J

I got this and it works great for elevating a bike and having another hanging or leaning at floor level. Looks like this manufacturer's version is no longer being produced but there's another very similar by someone else linked in the Amazon page.

It presses between the ceiling and floor. I spray painted it white to match the walls too. Looks pretty good and no permanent marks.

u/Ben_FTW · 1 pointr/MTB
u/nondescript0605 · 1 pointr/ladycyclists

Ah, that's so annoying! Efficient storage will probably depend a lot on where in your building you have room to store things, but here's a couple ideas.

We have one of these from Amazon. You can buy a kit to make it hold four bikes - two on front and two on back. You just extend the pole to fit tightly between the ceiling and floor - no screws or holes. Plus it looks really nice. We are able to put it pretty close to the wall and still get the two bikes on the back side off - I put a wall hanging behind it to prevent marking up the walls. But this means our dining room is now a bike room *shrug*

I also saw this while looking for the link for you and think it looks pretty great for corner storage!

u/nonameslob0605 · 1 pointr/bicycling

We have this (or something similar). Looks classy for a bike rack and you can buy a kit to hang an additional two bikes on the back, so four in total.

u/zedtomato · 1 pointr/bicycling

There are some upright stands that sit on the floor that may be a good option, depending on your space. Like this one: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XXSHGWR/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_XirnDbWE1N2AF

u/SteenerNeener · 1 pointr/bicycling

I just picked up one of these on REI w/ my 20% members coupon (still waiting on delivery) and I've heard a lot of good things.

There's these guys if you really want vertical standing. I'd been considering buying one for my office. I was concerned that the bike would fall forward if someone bumped it, though.

u/tuctrohs · 1 pointr/bicycling

I built a stand that mounted like that--tension floor to ceiling--and hung bikes vertically, using wood. That was a while ago and I don't have good pictures, but it can be done if you are up for that sort of project. As an intermediate options, u/fallingbomb's stand, this one that goes up to 11.5 feet, or this one that goes up to 11 could serve as a good head start to setting up to hang bikes vertically, even though they don't have the right hooks and rear wheel guides for that yet.

Otherwise, you might like this simple one bike vertical stand, or this four bike vertical stand Or, for an expensive solution, this.

u/penguindreamsmusic · 1 pointr/Rabbits

I use wire squares around areas with cords to keep Marble from chomping them , but if you're living with escape artist bunnies they probably figured out they can jump over things.

Did something change recently in the home environment? Marble goes insane when the seasons shift until we get the thermostat adjusted back to where he wants it. Are they kept in a room where there's usually a person present?

First thing to resolve would be how they're escaping their pen. If you put them in the pen during the day do they try to stage a jail break so you can see how they're getting out?

I've been working with a 501(c)(3) non-profit that has helped recover over 6,000 stolen bikes. Happy to answer any questions about the trends/scenarios we see most frequently. There's also a monthly newsletter of recovery stories for your entertainment.

Bringing it inside is the best option if you can (though I would've gone with a slightly more elaborate solution for convenience.). For long term storage, I'd throw a u-lock on the rear wheel and lock it to the frame through the seat stays so you can't walk/ride it without removing the lock.
