Questions & Answers
Approximately 36" x 96" is the outside dimension of the frame.
There is not much sway in it. Attaching the uprights to a wall will ensure that the frame won't wobble at all when it's installed against a wall. The wall that was 18 inches from the right and left corner uprights and the right upright could not be done that way so a scrap of 2x4 was attached to it. Simple fix for a cheap price. There were no wobbles. In the end, I did this more out of peace of mind I did not see
As far as I know, the rack can hold four bicycles. It would seem a bit crowded if the physical space were 3' x 8'. If you hang each bike properly, you will need to organize it carefully.
There is no limit to where you can mount it as long as there is a sturdy ceiling to support the unit with a load.

This rack has made a huge difference to my life. It has no missing parts, no missing threads, and it has a superb design I find the quality to be truly Prior to choosing this, I considered many options for garage storage, and there is no doubt that it was the best choice, both in terms of price and functionality. Even though the instructions tell you what has to be done, they do not grant you all the knowledge necessary in order to carry out this task, since knowing the center-piece of information is the most critical. There is a distance of about 13 feet between the ceiling holes. Despite the fact that this was not difficult to figure out, I suggest the manufacturer add this information to the directions since telling us the required finished outside dimensions may not be helpful to everyone. To drill through a 12 foot high ceiling was the most difficult part of the process for me - keeping my balance while drilling holes Do not let your guard down! It does not seem beneficial to use the ceiling template since the only thing that matters is where the joists are located, and the template cannot determine where the holes should be drilled. In the end, I did not use it. In addition to being heavy, the boxes are a bit heavy to handle on one's own and your UPS driver may not be too pleased. I received my kit with no scratches to the paint or damage to the parts, however the parts are pretty well protected in the box. On my 12 foot high ceiling, I was able to install these myself by following the directions but assembling two shelves at a time after all the supports had been installed, rotating them up to catch the center support, and repeating the process for the remaining.
My understanding of metal studs was that they are found in factories and warehouses, not in everyday homes. That's not true! In my ordinary home, there are metal studs in the ceiling. When I went to install them, I was amazed to see this. This item may not be used with metal screws. I was grateful for the seller's generosity in helping me resolve the issue caused by my ignorance, but it is so much easier to just check first. I am very satisfied with the product and the customer service!.
In terms of proficiency with the tools, I would say I am pretty good. For those who do or even for those who do not, here are some tips. 1 *br /*br This would be very helpful if you have an Allen wrench set in the rachet style. My drill has an adapter for 3/8" bits that I use with my Allen key set, which really made assembly even A socket affixed to that same drill gun could be said to do the same. Please see 2. If you have to put the shelf up into the air, you should leave a few bolts snug so you can bump the shelf around. You should wait to tighten the rack until it is completely hung before finishing the job. 2.
3. That's a frame! The best of luck to you if your ceiling is finished drywall. To ensure that all ceiling joists or roof rafters are being struck, ensure that you are hitting them. This is so important, I can't express it enough. Adding a 2x4 on the flat directly to your joists and rafters in one direction would solve this problem and give you a clear connection to the wood that just went in. Oh, and if you are using wood lags, prepare them beforehand During drilling. 1. *2. *3. Whenever possible, have a friend with you. There is no way this could be done without Reading and sorting are done by one person and putting things together by the other. Two of these kits were installed by us, and the second one was much easier. Furthermore, two people are much easier to handle when getting the frame up. 3.
4. As far as size is concerned, you could go smaller if necessary. This would only require cutting the vertical struts. We considered doing this for a moment, however we decided against it and to reposition the rack so that it would not interfere with the garage door tracks.
I bought 3x6 and 3x8 racks from this company, and they are attractive and install as expected, but the poorly machined bolt holes indicate structural issues, so I can only give them a mediocre rating. *You can see the bottom bolt going on the way it should in the picture provided. top bolt is missing by at least 1/8th of an inch, making it impossible to thread it. The two platform sections bolt together perfectly flush, but the top bolt is off by at least 1/8th inch. It is therefore impossible to align the platform hole with physical pressure unless I unconnect the two platforms. You will need to choose one of the following options if you wish to use a rack with this problem This is 1. 1. Drilling out the platform and purchasing a locking nut to hold on to the bolt (the platform is threaded)*2. A bolt head must be driven through the bracket by drilling it out and by purchasing a washer that prevents this from happening. 2.
It would be a pain to send the bulky package back just to return it and hope the replacement works, but anyone who purchases these racks should expect to have to Although the rack should be manufactured, we should not be required to assist in the process. Considering this issue was present on both of the racks I purchased, I would not advise new buyers to buy from Fleximounts.
I've wanted to install overhead storage in our garage for a while now, and I recently found out that it's so easy to do. Finally we got it! I am so glad we did! I love the black color of this dress and we really appreciate the solid color It was amazing how sturdy it turned out to be! Our family loves that it's adjustable in height and that it's a good size. It holds (4) 27 gallon totes and has room for a smaller one, this is the 3' x 8'! Our only complaint was that both of us had a little difficulty understanding the instructions at certain points, but once we both read them over thoroughly & explained everything, everything was clear. All the pieces came together to make sense once you put them all together. My purchase was definitely a good one! There is still one more to be done.
