Special Honors

Sharkcage T-Rax These stackable models can hold over 5,000 pounds apiece, making them a smart choice for industrial shops and warehouses. It's wide enough to accommodate two pallets side-by-side, so it should fit any tools you have on hand. sharkcage.com

Triton Products LocBoard The only thing more convenient than a stainless steel pegboard is a stainless steel pegboard on wheels. This mobile unit is a great way to ferry tools around the shop, and it's dual-sided to give you even more storage space. woodcraft.com

Huot Supertower This 135-piece monster holds everything at a slight downward angle, allowing you to clearly see every tool at your disposal. It's versatile as well, as you can add casters to it, stack multiple units, or attach it to another storage item. zoro.com

Editor's Notes

August 03, 2019:

The best storage rack for you will depend in large part on what tools you're looking to store. Brooms, mops, and other implements with long handles will do best on something like the model from Berry Ave, as it can hold them up where they're both out of the way yet convenient to access.

A pegboard, like the one from Wall Control, is better for smaller handtools like screwdrivers and hammers. The big advantage that these have is that they're extremely customizable, so you can keep altering them to meet your needs.

There are other models listed here, like bins, magnetic strips, and simple towers, each with its own pros and cons. For our purposes, we ranked them according to how well they fulfilled their intended purpose, and assumed that users would simply decide on the best one that met their particular needs. However, many professional shops (and cluttered private garages) may need several different varieties to truly tame their clutter. If things are extremely out of hand, in fact, it may be best to go with a garage storage system instead.
