Ladders can be cumbersome when it comes time to store them, but did you know that keeping them low is much easier than trying to tuck them into a crawlspace or an overhead storage rack in your garage? You may have overlooked some valuable storage space along the lower parts of the walls in your garage or shed.

You can easily install hooks low on the wall so you can store your ladders horizontally. It will be much easier to retrieve your ladders when you need them, and since they have slim profiles when collapsed, your wall-mounted storage solution will free up additional space in your garage or storage shed.

Ladders generally aren’t very heavy, but you still want to make sure your wall mounts are secure. Mount the hooks for your ladder securely into wall studs so the ladder hangs about a foot above the floor. This will help keep them clean, dry, and ready whenever you need them.
