Fishing Rod Organizer/Indoor
Your high-quality rods would look great displayed from your ceiling or wall in a room in your house or in the garage. This device is made of 3/8" Premium grade Wisa birch plywood (7 layers) and has 1 inch thick by 1 1/2 inch wide mount plate. Painted 3” mounting screws are provided. This device is painted with a satin finish. It is extremely durable and attractive. Your high-quality rods will look great hanging from your ceiling or wall in a room in your house or in the garage.
This device is made to be attached to studs over top of drywall in your garage, basement,
"man-cave" or room. Use a stud finder to locate the stud for the top screw. Then use a small level on the side of the device to level and drive the bottom screw into the same stud. On ceiling mounts, you will need to locate the joist for both ends of the device and drive the screw into the joist. Determine whether you will place the devices 32 or 48 inches apart depending on the size of the rods that you will be stored in the device.
Installation: Locate the center of one stud using a stud finder: 1) Vertically Hung Devices: drive the top fastener (included with purchase) into the center of the stud, place a level on the device, and drive the bottom fastener into the stud. 2) Horizontally Hung Devices (Baseball organizers are predrilled on 16" centers): Find the center of the first stud and drive the fastener through the device into the stud (do not tighten fully until the other fastener location is determined). Since virtually all studs are set on 16" centers, measure over (16"/32"/48" depending on the desired distance between devices - Skateboards - 16", Snowboards - 32", Snow Skis - 32" etc...) from the first fastener, level the device using a pocket level, and drive the screw (since some studs may be out of place, you may want to verify the second stud location using a small nail or stud finder). Once you have driven the second fastener, go back and finish tightening the first fastener.
