Pipe Clamp Rack

By: Logan Wittmer
A custom clamp rack for a clamp with legs. A solid solution for storing some favorite clamps.

Having accumulated a number of Bessey H-style pipe clamps over the years, I eventually came to realize that leaning them in the corner of the shop was not the ideal storage option. They were difficult to get to and I always managed to knock a couple over when picking them up. Since I had some free wall space available, I decided to make this simple storage rack to get my clamps out of the corner and make them more accessible.

Because of the wide “feet” on this style of clamp, I quickly realized that all I needed was a piece of stock with a rabbet along the back edge as shown in the photo here. The clamp’s feet simply hook over the lip formed by the rabbet. This holds them securely in place, but also leaves them easy to remove from the rack. I secured the rack to the wall with lag screws and fender washers. The best part is that if I do acquire more clamps down the road, it’s a snap to cut and mount a longer rack with very minimal expense.
