A garage is a great place to keep equipment, tools and cars, but it can quickly become overcrowded with bikes, lawn care tools and toys. Leaving everything on the floor wastes tons of available space. Monkey Bars Garage Storage Systems help you take advantage of your space and organize your garage.
We moved to this house 9 months ago, after living 16 years with out a garage. I can’t begin to tell you how excited we were to have a garage. Needless to say, we were pretty clueless on how to organize the garage and of course on moving day, it’s where things were dumped, and the mess was starting to get a little out of hand.
I wanted to get a system in place before it got out of hand. So I was super excited when the wonderful people at Monkey Bars Garage Storage Systems reached out and asked if we could work together on a garage storage system for our house.
There was one wire shelf in the back corner of the garage when we moved in, and we had two industrial free standing shelves that we brought with us…..it wasn’t enough.
I knew at this rate, it would soon become impossible to get the cars inside. It was already at the point that only my car fit, Allison’s Jeep and Steve’s truck had to stay in the driveway. What good is a two car garage if you can’t fit two cars in it?
Enter……Ray, with Monkey Bars in St. Louis. He came over to our house back in December. He took a look at our garage then and we sat in our kitchen and discussed what would work best for our family. Monkey Bar Garage Systems are designed for efficiency. Their patented hook and bar system allows you to store three times more items than any other storage system.
The integrated, adjustable & expandable system itself is able to effectively organize long- and short-term storage items by using the vertical space in garages. You can organize, bikes, tools, folding chairs and many other items you store in your garage in less than 1/3 of the space of other systems! Utilizing steel brackets, shelving and hooks, the system can take on a variety of sizes based on your needs.
We have empty shelves yet to fill and the new wall cabinet is perfect for my husband to store chemicals he uses for work.
How it works
The bars, which slide into brackets that support the upper shelving, give place for the variety of hooks that can hold everything from bikes and golf bags to shovels, wheelbarrows and surf boards. Secured with a 3 x 3/8 inch screw in the centers of wall studs, the system is capable of holding up to 1,000 pounds every 4 feet! how fabulous is that?! check out this video to see Monkey Bars in action.
Getting all of our tools out of the small trashcan, makes them much more accessible, and safer to get to.
