Basement storage rack on rails

Being short, fat, old and lazy, I got tired of having to crawl halfway into the basement to get/stow lawn chairs, etc. also being cheap, I decided to make a moveable rack suspended to the alum structure overhead with garage door rails & rollers to move the stuff to the door.

Cost was FREE as the rails and rollers came from an overhead door installers scrap yard and the tubing/angles came from our old racecar trailer. Quite satisfied with the results. Also made a rack with 4" pvc to stow the awning sunshades, etc.

Haven't really made that many. Can read writing, but can't write reading.

Very, very nice! Great idea! So, it takes up half the bay, and travels the whole width? Great idea !
