Hang folding table in basement storage

I'd like to hang a 6' folding table (so 3' x 3' x 3"-ish) from the basement storage hatch's ceiling. I swear I've seen a solution here before- just can't find it.

I'm sure OC will be along shortly with something that will work

And if he does, it'll be implemented with aluminum and since my father in law will be helping me with the next set of camper mods, I'll be able to do whatever OC says to!

How about some pictures of the table (length, width, thickness folded) and the basement ceiling with dimensions. Do you want it stored laying flat on a rack in the ceiling or hanging by a handle from a hook in the ceiling or against a wall, etc.

I can go measure the table, can't measure the camper until Sunday at the earliest.

Flat against the ceiling. It has exposed "rafters" (i.e. the aluminum framing for the floor above).

I used four eye screws and two bungie straps, table just slides in nicely.

Measure with pics of table. If the ceiling is completely clear, might it be possible to store it the 3' x 3' x 6' length with the legs folded? Put one end up in a rack from one side and go around to the other side and lift the other end up into a rack by one person or a person on both sides of the basement?

I'll need to be able to do it by myself- my wife generally takes care of the inside while I do the outside stuff. Love my daughter dearly- but not yet ready to require her. :-)

I was thinking a rear lip that I put one end of the table into then lift the front/closest side to me and "close" the holder.

I was thinking of angle aluminum for the rear and then rope or bungee or something for the front. I'm not sure yet if I'd have to secure it from shifting in any direction.

We have one just like it. How about an alum rack on one end and a hook to put the handles in on the other end?


Another option, 2 hooks, one on each end and leave the table unfolded?

I'll play with it on cad and see what happens.

Sketch of a pc of pvc pipe in 1/8 x 1" alum straps bolted thru a rafter to hold one end of the table and on another rafter, a 1/8 x 1" alum strap hook to loop the handle over.
