Closet retainers/ tie downs: suggestions needed

Recommended Posts

I keep a couple of folding camp chairs in front of the closet, propped vertically against the wall, and I will soon be adding a cheap telescoping ladder for emergency roof use. The chairs always fall over and I am sure it will be more of a clutter with the ladder added.

 

Any suggestions on ways to secure them upright against the front wall?

 

I need something stronger than the stick-on plastic hooks. I am OK with drilling and putting screws into the inner wall, as long as I know the part is there forever. I do hate to make a mistake and then have leftover holes to deal with.

 

Do any of you have tie downs?

 

What's in your closet?

 

It sure would be cool to have something adjustable.....

 

I could use these but I am not sure of the load capacity:

A set of 2ft tracks mounted vertically could work, screwed directly into the glass....:

John, the xtend and climb ladder that we have is stored in the closet against the bathroom wall.  It stands on the floor and fits perfectly under the black plastic vent pipe that runs along that wall.  I just wrapped a bungee cord around the pipe and the ladder and it has never shifted during travels.  The clothes hanging in there also help to secure it.  That's a pretty low-tech approach to securing a piece of equipment and I never intended for it to be my final solution.  I put it there in a hurry when we were leaving on a trip.  That was in early 2014 and it has worked so well that I've never gotten around to seeking a better way.

Quick fists would be my first thought… http://quickfistclamps.com

Those are cool but not suitable. I need to be able to secure various odd shaped stuff, not tubular shapes. I want to be able to stretch a bungee or two across to act as a barrier.
