Reading John Trosko's garage-related post today reminded me that it's about time for me to write another garage post!
While there are many multi-purpose garage cabinets, slat board systems and such, I thought I'd focus on some of the specialty products I've been seeing. Let's start with the EnviroStacker, sold by Lee Valley Tools. While it was designed to let you get those old recycling bins off the floor, this bracket can be used with many bins that have a rigid lip. [via Toolmonger] Update on March 27, 2012: These are now called Bin Brackets.
Want a spare refrigerator in your garage? Gladiator has a refrigerator designed just for garages. As the Gladiator web site says: "Unlike your neighbor's garage refrigerator that they retired from their kitchen, the Energy Star qualified Chillerator Garage Refrigerator is not only designed to handle the extreme temperature and humidity of the garage environment, it also saves you money by reducing energy consumption."
Here's a storage rack designed specifically for tire storage - helpful if you live in a climate where you change tires as the seasons change, or have any other reason to be storing tires.
And if you want to store an entire extra car, you can do that, too - using a car lift from Revolution. [via Patrick Langston of the Ottowa Citizen, on the Vancouver Sun web site]
