Wall Mounted Hanging Bike Hooks Store Bicycles Vertically
Bicycles are a pain to store. They take up space and are difficult to retrieve if they’re disorganized and stored incorrectly. Wall mounted hanging bike hooks eliminate this problem by storing them on the wall instead to prevent cluttered storage and provide a cleaner look. Retail stores and apartments are especially fond of this option since it provides a neat display and allows residents to easily store their bikes without stacking or hastily piling bikes on top of each other.
Built Sturdy for Every Application
Instead of taking up floor space, the wall mounted hanging bike hooks store bikes vertically on the wall. This allows you to make more room for your storage without the high cost. Made of heavy-duty 11 gauge steel, the hooks are capable of storing any bicycle and stand up to the wear and tear of everyday use. The hook projects 5.25″ from the base and includes a vinyl covering to prevent scratching and protect the bike’s finish. Two pre-drilled holes are included for easy wall mounting. For extra security, users can also supply their own padlocks.
Any application that deals with the storage of bicycles can benefit from using bike hooks, whether it’s just a few bikes or a large collection. For example, this bike storage solution can provide a secure and dedicated area for storing tenant bikes as an additional source of revenue for apartments and other residential buildings. For larger storage applications, a tube frame system can hang multiple bikes from the center of a room. Other application ideas include:
- Retail displays
- Bike storage in personal garages
- Lost & Found rooms
- Bike storage for dormitories
- Police evidence storage
