Finally, a storage rack that is strong enough to hold all of your Ski and Snowboard equipment. Rough Rack was designed & constructed by facility operations managers who could not find sturdy racks that were large enough to hang all their equipment and tools. And, since the designers were also avid skiers, the Rough Rack Ski & Snowboard Rack was created. Perfect for home or commercial ski shop use.
Excellent for Skis, Poles, Snowboards, Snowshoes, Wakeboards, and More!
Constructed of sturdy welded powder coated steel
Easy wall installation with mounting hardware included

All Rough Racks hold over 100lbs of equipment
Prongs stick out 12 inches for plenty of hanging space

4-8 Ski/Snowboard Rack Holds 8 pair of Skis with all 16 Poles or 8 Snowboards 34 inches in length with over 45 inches of hanging space
Locate center of stud with a stud finder that will match up with center hole on the Rough Rack. (For smaller racks begin on outside)
Drill pilot hole with a 5/16" drill bit
Line up center hole on rack and attach with 3/8" x 2 1/2" long lag bolt and washer. (Do not tighten all the way)
Hold level on top of Rough Rack, when level drill corresponding holes and secure all bolts tightly
Alternate Mounting (Wall Studs not on 16" Centers / Studs or Desired Location):
Measure and cut a 2" x 6" piece of lumber to at least the same length as the Rough Rack. If hanging multiple Rough Racks in a row you may want one long piece of lumber to hang all Rough Racks uniformly.
Select desired location on wall
Locate studs in wall with a stud finder
Using a level, attach 2" x 6" lumber to studs with minimum 3" long wood screws using a minimum of 2 screws per stud
After lumber is securely mounted to wall hold Rough Rack in desired location and using mounting holes on Rough Rack as a guide drill hole with a 5/16" drill bit. Be sure top of Rough Rack is flush with top of 2" x 6" lumber. This will ensure more stability and also ensure you are level
Attach with 3/8" x 2 1/2"long lag bolt and washer. (Do not tighten all the way)
Drill corresponding holes and secure all bolts tightly
Find the center of stud for the first hole you choose to drill. This will give best chance of hitting center of the next studs.
When Rough Rack is loosely hanging on the first bolt the following holes may need to be drilled with top of drill bit touching top of pilot hole. This is because the Rough Rack pilot hole is resting on top of bolts and the first bolt is not perfectly centered in pilot hole.
Often time studs are not perfectly on 16" centers. While drilling you may need to angle drill bit to ensure your drilling deep into lumber and not on the edge of a stud.
When attaching lag bolts into angled drill holes the hex head of the lag bolt may not sit perfectly flush on Rough Rack. As long as the bolt is properly seated into wood and is sufficiently tight you should be fine.
Do not over tighten lag bolts in wood. This may cause the bolt to strip out the hole and not hold Rough Rack securely.
