Homemade snowboard racks

I needed some snowboard racks in my basement to get our gear off the ground. I wanted to spend nothing so I went hunting in my garage for anything I could use.

I came across some cheap shelf brackets and as luck would have it I found six…..that’s two per board, for all three boards.

Here’s a shot of the top two brackets in place.

I used some pipe insulation held on with zip ties so I won’t have metal against metal which will dull our edges and scrape the board bottoms.

A few minutes later all three were in place.

What you need:

1. Shelf brackets.
2. Pipe insulation that will fit over the brackets.
3. Some wire ties.
4. Screw gun/drill.
5. Sheet Rock screws.
6. A Level, but you can eyeball it.

I found a few studs and screwed directly into them. I suggest you do the same if you want your boards to stay on the wall!
