Not all of us have a lot of room in our shops to put in a big rack for pipe clamps. But there are other ways to store them. Top your pipe clamps with an end cap and eye bolt, and you can hang them anywhere you put a nail or hook. You'll find end caps in the plumbing-supply bins in the hardware store. Simply drill a hole through the top of the cap, insert a 14 " eye bolt in the hole, and secure it with a nut and lock washer. Screw this assembly onto the threaded end of your pipe clamps and hang'em high.
