I'm doing some garage re-org this weekend.  My yard tools take up a little too much space.  Currently they hang from hooks in an 8ft long 2x6, but I am sure they could be condensed.  

I see these styles available locally (checked lowes and HD).  I like these styles because they grip the shaft (hehe) which means the tools an be slid vertical relative to their neighbors to fit much closer together.  #3 looks perhaps a bit too dense (and not adjustable).

Recommendations?  Leaning toward #2 at the moment.

Most of mine are stuffed handle first in a plastic 35 gallon drum.  Not ideal, but whatever.

A lazy Susan built from plywood circles that has notches to hold the tools.   A couple of different levels to accommodate different tool heightsz

there's a 4x4 running up the middle to span between an upper and lower bearing mounted under a shelf.

It sits in an otherwise useless corner.

I have a smaller version of #3 and I like it a lot.  I also found these at Menards:

I put up three of them and I like the way they operate and the fact that they're not linked to each other so I can space them out the way that works best for me.  One of them lost the adhesive on the friction strip after a month or two, though.  The other two have been fine.

In reply to wae :

I have the full size version of number three and I'm not crazy about it. You have to have the exactly correct weight tool.  Other than that, it's not bad.

I have #2, tools slowly slide down. Wouldn't buy it again.

I have #1 and it works well. I can stagger the tools up and down and upside down to make more crap fit

I ended up finding long hooks that support stacking 3 tools in front of one another and just added those to the board when I relocated it in the garage.
