Garage Declutter: How to hang ladders

March 5, 2020

Save on storage space by moving big, bulky ladders to either a fitting on the wall or ceiling. Having ladders stored on the floor can take up a lot of unnecessary space.

5 simple steps to hanging your bikes:

  1. Firstly, locate where you want to hang the ladders – do you want them hung vertically or horizontally?
  2. You can use heavy-duty hooks to store on the wall, a manual or motorised hoist/ rack for ceiling storage or a Slatwall organisation system.
  3. Once you’ve decided where and how you are going to store the ladders you need to fix the storage system to the wall or ceiling.
  4. Now you’re ready to hang your ladders! – Make sure the ladders are secure and at no risk of falling.
  5. No time, no tools and short on skills? We recommend you search Checkatrade.com to find your local handyman expert and let them tackle the job within hours.
