tie rack Buyer’s Guide

If you keep the before points in mind, you can easily go out to the market and buy tie rack, right? No!

Out Of Stock

With so many ties in your collection, you need a serious solution to tie organization.

This revolving tie rack holds 6ties, numerous belts and is exceedingly compact.

The rack attaches securely and stays in place, allowing you to rotate your ties at the push of a button. Battery operated; this item makes getting dressed easy. Assembly required. Accessories include belt hooks, pole cover and pole clamps.

Print this Project

I officially had my fill of this and decided to take matters into my own hands and make a rack that would mount to the back wall of my closet, and allow me to easily see all of my ties at a glance, keep them from becoming cluttered, and hopefully, not take up a lot of space. I came up with this, a board with staggering pegs. This would allow me to have many ties in a small amount of space, thus making it efficient, keep them organized, and allow me to see them easily at a glance. I took the opportunity to make it interesting as well.

I used iron spikes as pegs and I put an awesome finish on the wood. I also added a shelf, partly for appearance, and also for use. All in all, I am extremely happy with how it came out. The whole project only took me a couple hours (plus time for polyurethane to dry).

How to choose a bike rack

Bikes vary widely in cost, style, size and weight too, all of which should be factors when looking for a means of transporting them. You probably won’t want to risk carrying your expensive super bike on a rack that costs less than one of its ultra-light tires.

Also consider practicality: whether the rack will suit your needs now and in the future; ease of use — how easy it is to fit to the vehicle and load; security — whether it holds the bikes safely and locks the bikes and to the vehicle; and how much storage space it will take up when not in use.

Hitch-mounted

Front wheel removal keeps the bike lower (great for tall SUVs), can be easier and lighter to load, and is the classic way of hauling bikes up top. Bike racks that keep both wheels on the bike are taller, generally cost more, and can be less stable. Either option likely uses integrated locks to lock your bike to the rack. And of course the rack is locked to the bars, and the bars are locked to your vehicle.

Our pants pick

For pants and trousers, we like The Container Store Chrome Pant Hangers. The PVC nonslip coating holds pant fabric firmly, allowing for easy browsing through a closet, but it also permits pants to slide off without sticking, in contrast to rubber-coated models. The slim shape is space efficient but prone to causing slight creasing, unlike bigger and bulkier felt-bar designs.

A slim hanger with the most secure clips we tested.

Among the three skirt hangers we tested, the clips on the MAWA 12″ Skirt Clip Hanger felt the most secure, and each hanger took up slightly less physical space than the competition. An industry-leading 10-year warranty makes this skirt hanger stand out.

For your most valuable coats and suits

A graceful curve ending in a 2½-inch wide shoulder yoke will keep suits and coats in tip-top shape between wearings.

Some suits and coats deserve extra care, and the Kirby Allison’s Hanger Project Luxury Wooden Jacket Hanger is designed for garment storage of expensive items whose shape you wouldn’t entrust to a noncontoured wooden hanger. Its very wide shoulder yoke supports the heaviest garments without causing dimpling or creasing.

How we picked

The best hanger is designed to store and maintain garments without stretching, creasing, tearing, or changing the original shape of your clothing, which can help extend its life. Clothing hangers should be easy to hold, place, and sort while hanging, with a hook wide enough to fit securely over the closet rod (on average, modern closet rods are constructed to be from inch to 5/1inches in diameter; wooden rods in older homes may be smaller).

Pull Quote

Hangers come in a dizzying multitude of shapes, sizes, and garment-specific designs. After we separated our research into several categories—general use, pants, women’s shirt, skirt, and suit/jacket/coat—we pinpointed the detailing that set apart the poor from the good from the excellent.

Our selection of hangers underwent inspection before testing began.

Flaws but not dealbreakers

We’d also prefer to see the Proman Kascade offered in additional, alternative designs similar to The Container Store’s Basic Natural Wood Hangers line. A felt or textured pant bar would be a welcome addition, and the Kascade design’s standard but slim shoulder bars are probably not appropriate for long-term use with finer formal coats.

The Container Store’s hangers also include nonslip toothed inserts to keep blouses in place, a welcome detail for lightweight garments with straps or sleeves prone to sliding off wooden hangers.

We demoted The Container Store’s offering to runner-up for this year’s update, however, because these hangers have fewer features than the Proman Kascade. The pant bar and garment notches are either/or options across the three versions, so you can’t use them interchangeably among different types of clothing. The hooks have a sharp tip, unlike the Proman style’s ball end. And the pant hanger didn’t break when we pulled across the pant bar, but our pulling did expose a gap at the joint that could pinch a garment (though this isn’t a problem with the barless shirt hanger).

Expensive but anticrease

If price isn’t a concern for you, we can easily recommend the Kirby Allison’s Hanger Project Luxury Wooden Felted Trouser Bar Hanger, sold in sets of five. This is a closed-bar design, but the anticrease felt-covered pant bar is worth the investment. The hanger is available in two sizes and three wood finishes, with felt that feels luxurious yet never shed any fuzz on pants or skin in our tests. More important, the bar never noticeably creased our pants. Hangers like this one are a splurge worthy of your special-occasion slacks and trousers.

General-purpose hangers

IKEA BUMERANG: People often name this hanger as a cheap general-use favorite, but in comparison with our top pick in the general-use category, price reflects quality here. In our tests, a rough wooden finish, inconsistent construction, and a weakly secured pant bar were characteristic.

Pant hangers

Jobar (Ideaworks) Slacks Hangers: The rotating smooth-ribbed plastic cover across each of these chrome-plated open-end pant hangers made it easy for us to remove pants individually, but the design also made it easy for pants to fall off while we thumbed through the closet.

J.S. Hanger Slacks Pant Hangers: The biggest drawback of this model is the particularly tacky and sticky rubber coating applied across the pant bar. In our testing it was a dust magnet that transferred particles onto darker fabrics, and in use it required us to remove the hanger from the rod to get to our pants, defeating the convenience of an open-end design.

Closet Complete Essential Closet Non-Slip Pants Hangers: A solid alternative to our Container Store pant-hanger pick. It has a thicker, cushioned nonslip foam that feels less durable than a rubber coating, as foam can dry, harden, and crack with time.

Richards Homewares Open End Trouser Hangers: This style looks similar to the Closet Complete pant hanger, but the hook element seems to be off balance, as it required us to push heavier-fabric pants to the rear of the arm to counteract tilting.

Kirby Allison’s Hanger Project Luxury Wooden Clamping Trouser Hanger: In our testing, this model was the only clamp-style pant hanger we tried. We liked the felt-lined trouser grip, which is designed for storing pants upside down from the cuff. We think this style is a worthy premium alternative for your finer dress slacks, as it can reduce or perhaps even eliminate the formation of wrinkles between wears.

Skirt hangers

Pro-Mart DAZZ Skirt Hanger: The sliding clips along this model’s metal arm make an unpleasant metal-on-metal sound. Instead of having a rubber tip at the top of the hook, the end loops back upward with a sharp edge. And the tier hook can intrude and press up against the skirt in the middle.

Whitmor Ebony Chrome Add-On Skirt/Slack Hanger: This skirt hanger is nearly identical in design to the Pro-Mart DAZZ model, though it sports a slightly larger dimple on the clamp, a slightly wider tier hook, and a rubber-coated tip on the top hook. It has the same tier-hook protrusion issue we noted with the Pro-Mart DAZZ, with a slightly wider hook.

Suit and coat hangers

Butler Luxury Tailor Made Suit Hanger: Available in two widths—a regular 16½-inch hanger for suit sizes 3to 42, and an extra-large 18-inch model for suit sizes 4to 48—this premium model ranked just behind our top suit-hanger pick, with noticeably less rounded and less smoothly finished ends in comparison with the Kirby Allison’s Hanger Project design. This hanger is big and bulky, and only a few would fit in our closet.

MAWA Bodyform 16″ Non-Slip Suit Hanger: One of the grippier hangers we tested, this model attracted a lot of lint and dust because of the sticky rubber coating applied across its arms and shoulder flares. As the width of the shoulder flares was much smaller than that of the Butler Luxury and Hanger Project suit hangers, it didn’t support suit coats and jackets nearly as well. This hanger is better for outerwear jackets than for suits.

Removing Wrinkles and Stains

Cleaning a stain from a tie is neither fun nor easy. Our first advice would be to exercise caution when wearing a tie to avoid accidents in the first place. If you do get a stain, act as quickly as possible. Blot the stain on your tie with a cloth immediately — never try to rub it out, though, as that will make the stain harder to remove. If the stain is water-soluble, use seltzer water or club soda on the tie as you are blotting. If the stain is oil-based, apply talcum powder or cornstarch immediately to lift the stain off the tie. Let the powder sit for a few hours and then brush it off and clean with a soft cloth. Depending on the stain, you may need to repeat this process one or two more times to completely lift the stain. If you have tried all of these steps and the pesky stain is still hanging around, then take it to the dry cleaners. Be sure to specifically ask that they do not press your ties, which can cause their rolled edges to flatten and lose shape.

This one here is perfect! While it only holds 2ties, you can easily install several in a row or below each other. I have mine installed inside my closet door.

If you love your ties so much that you wish you could wear multiple ties each tie, then you may also want to consider one of these wall mounted cubby shelves. While typically only seen for store displays, they can be a piece of colorful art in your walk-in closet.

Drawer Inserts

Personally I am not a big fan of using drawer inserts as most of them require you to roll your ties and then placing the cylinder shaped roll upright. This can negatively impact the shape and drape of the tie. But, if you have an extra drawer available, have limited hanging space, and are tired of your ties falling off from the tie rack, then a drawer insert might be right for you. Choose an flexible fabric insert that is adjustable to fit a wide range of drawers.

This one here by the Container Store is a good option that can be adjusted to fit a wide range of drawer dimensions.

Do you find ties strewn everywhere? In a heap or in a pile in your closet? Tell your spouse to clean up in a delightful way by getting your kids involved. They can help you build and decorate a tie rack to organize any mess.

Sketch out a design for the base board. Get creative as you want.

Clamp the board down and cut out edges using a jig saw (aka saber saw).

To cut inside pieces, drill a hole to make space for the jig saw. Be patient while cutting along curves or the blade could break.

Sand down all sides and edges until smooth.

Use a file to smooth holes. Flat files for flat sides and curved files for curves.

Let your children go to town with paints and any accessories.

Space out pegs evenly and mark where to drill the holes. See our video How to Drill Holes.

Apply glue to the end of the pegs and gently hammer into the holes. Wipe away excess glue.

Using our jig saw (which is also called a sabre saw), we’ll cut along our sketch marks. When cutting, it helps if the work piece is firmly clamped to the workbench. To cut out the inside holes, we’ll use our drill and this Forstner bit to drill a hole that we can fit our jigsaw blade through. Take your time when turning the blade and don’t get in a hurry. As you can see, our design is starting to take shape.

Now that our design has been rough cut, we’ll give the surface a good sanding with our random orbit sander. Since we’re going to paint it, a 120-grit sanding disk should do just fine. For the holes inside the lettering, we’ll use our files to remove any rough spots. On the flat sides, we’ll use our flat mill file. For the rounded sides, we’ll use our half-round file. To ease the edges, we’ll use this sander drill attachment.

Now comes the fun part. For this next step we’ll bring the design crew back together on the driveway with some water-base paint that can be easily cleaned with soap and water. Dad will love the unique design and creativity. Just make sure you have a tarp and plenty of brushes. Don’t forget to paint the pegs, too.

Repeat these same steps with the other pegs, drilling the holes, and gluing the pegs. Dad’s going to love this. Now all we have to do is hang it where it can see it and use every day. It’s sure to be one off his favorite gifts of all time.

What it’s good for

Nordstrom is like an upscale Macy’s.  A quick glance at their brands (Hugo Boss, John Varvatos) and you can tell immediately that it’s going to cost more shopping there.  But their in house brands are superb.  Their more modern leaning house brands like Calibrate and 190offer quality and great fits at reasonable prices.  Plus their Nordstrom Trim Fit dress shirts are extremely well put together.  Nordstrom isn’t perpetually on sale like Macy’s, but when they do discount, it’s worth it.

What they’re good for

Jeans, sweaters, casual and dress blazers, casual shirts, and finding cheaper alternatives to J. Crew stuff.

They’re all owned by the same company and they each have specific target audiences.  Old Navy goes after the bargain family shopper, Gap is the place for still stylish but still mostly affordable foundational pieces,  and Banana Republic touts themselves as affordable luxury.  Unlike Banana Republic, you can’t buy a suit at The Gap or Old Navy, but you can buy pretty well made blazers at all three.  Yep, even at Old Navy.  Just make sure to take them to your tailor when you’re done, and consider ear plugs for the shopping trip to keep the screaming kids from giving you a headache.

Modern fitting pants

Bonobos was founded in 200to solve a singular problem: khaki pants that don’t make you look like a 50 year old man. While there are many slimmer options available today, at the time all chinos had a saggy butt, were too wide, and were all-around unflattering. Offered in several fits and a ton of colors, Bonobos offers pants in cotton, wool, linen, and more. They are more expensive than a similar pair from Old Navy, but the proof is in the quality. Bonobos also offers shirts and suiting decently priced for the quality.

How to pack your road bike for a trip abroad

For short trips, boot-mounted car racks are cheap, reasonably fuel efficient, fit most types of car and don’t require the fitting of an expensive towbar or roof bars – plus you can take them off when you reach your destination.

Open up the rack

On racks with ratcheting adjustments, make a mark to log the correct angles of each of the rack elements permanently. Then, next time around, you can just open it and set it to those marks. Inspect any nuts and bolts holding the rack together, along with the bolts or rivets holding the straps onto the frame.

Strap it carefully to the car

Make sure you attach the lateral straps and tighten them up securely, as pictured. If your rack doesn’t come with lateral straps, consider driving a little slower at roundabouts and around tight bends. Any extra lengths of strap can be used to secure the bike, which will also keep them tidy at speed.

Tension up the lower straps

Re-check this and then tie strips of protective rag or add pipe cladding where necessary. Then get going, and remember that driving safely and obeying the speed limits will make your bike happy.

Trunk-mounted

Trunk-mounted racks tend to be the least expensive option, and the least secure. The main thing holding them to your vehicle is a bunch of straps that hook around the lip of your vehicle’s trunk/hatchback/bumper.

Such racks are usually highly adjustable, so you can fit them to the rear of almost any vehicle. Rubber or foam ‘feet’ grip the vehicle, with the whole unit pulled taught and secured by the straps. This is the most affordable style of rack, but relies heavily on it being fitted properly and the hooks that hold the straps to the vehicle can sometimes damage paintwork.

Low-end trunk racks typically don’t have a way to lock your bike, or a way to be locked to your vehicle, so they’re also relatively easy to steal.

Pros: Easy to fit and usually the least expensive option. Easy to remove, small and fold for easy storage.

Cons: Least secure way to haul bikes. If you don’t fit it right you can lose the lot when driving, and the bikes are easy to steal.

Towbar-mounted hang-on racks

With a name like Buffalo, you’d expect this to be a well-built carrier and you wouldn’t be wrong.

Holding up to four bikes, it’s packed with smart features, perhaps the cleverest of which is the foot-pedal that operates the tilting mechanism, leaving your hands free.

The arms can be folded when not in use and have padded cradles to protect your bikes’ paintwork, as well as strong 300cm safety straps to prevent the bikes swaying.

There’s also an integrated cable lock for peace of mind when you need to leave the bikes una ended. Note that a separate lighting board is required.

Towbar-mounted platform racks

As the name suggests, the Quattro is designed to hold up to four bikes, making this a great option for family cycling holidays or bundling all your mates into one car for that sportive trip.

It’s superlatively tough, built to industry-leading safety standards, and features robust wheel holders with multiple securing points to suit bikes of all sizes.

All four bike slots have keyed locks for security. The well-balanced tilting mechanism tips the bikes far enough for easy boot access, and its compact shape means it can be stored in the boot when not in use.

Pendle Tilting-Wheel Support Track

Pendle’s standard wheel support rack is a sturdy, well-engineered bike carrier, but the Lancashire-based firm has gone one better with this tilting version that allows you to access the boot of your car without removing the bikes.

Available in two- or three-bike options, it offers adjustable spacing and in addition to the wheel trays, it has an upright strut for further frame support.

With a 15kg weight limit per bike, you can be sure it’s strong enough for your needs. A lighting board is included in the package.

Roof-mounted racks

Yakima Front Loader

Ideal if you don’t want your delicate carbon frame clamped into the carrier as the Yakima secures your bike by holding its front wheel – simply roll it into the front wheel catcher, which holds it in place while you secure the retaining straps.

This is a highly versatile option and the wheel catcher can be easily adjusted to suit bikes with a wide range of wheel sizes, as well as accommodating disc brakes.

And if you’re driving to a time trial, you’ll be pleased to know that the wheel straps can even fit aero rims up to 70mm deep.

Thule 59Pro Ride

We’re big fans of this superb roof carrier from Swedish bike transport specialist Thule.

The bike wheels slot neatly into a single tray and are secured by adjustable straps, each of which has an integrated keyed lock to deter opportunist thieves.

A vertical arm clamps to your frame to keep the bike upright – it uses a ratcheting mechanism for easy single-handed operation, and a torque limiter ensures there’s no danger of over-tightening and damaging delicate carbon frames.

How we tested

For this guide, including our two major updates, we’ve tested more than 30 bike racks. With each model, we went through the whole ownership experience of unboxing the rack, assembling it, mounting it on one or more vehicles, loading bikes, and driving around to check how securely the rack and bikes remained and if they needed any additional adjustments. Then we removed the bikes and rack, checked for any marks or damage on either, and folded the rack (if possible) for storage. We even included a metric for the number of swear words uttered—or shouted—during each rack’s test.

Hanging hitch racks

When we started assembling and mounting our hanging-style hitch racks, we were surprised by the least expensive rack in the category, the Allen Sports Deluxe Two Bike hitch-mount rack (not to be confused with the Allen Sports Deluxe Two Bike trunk rack that we recommend as a less expensive alternative to the Saris Bones). It was simple to set up, and we took less than a minute to get it mounted in the hitch and ready for bikes. Once in the hitch, however, it was a bit wiggly; shims would help the fit. If you wanted to store this rack, you would need to disassemble it completely, but then it’s flat enough to go anywhere.

Roof racks

The Kuat Trio is another fork-mount rack that’s very similar in design to the RockyMounts SwitchHitter. It held our bikes securely during our test-drives and was easy enough to mount on the vehicle, although not quite as easy as the SwitchHitter. The Trio seems like it’s mainly designed for thru-axle bikes, and we found the process of switching to a fork skewer a bit cumbersome; making the swap took several more steps than with the SwitchHitter (and the skewer badly pinched our tester’s finger as he fiddled with the tension to latch it).

Although the Yakima HighSpeed is a fine fork-mount rack, it’s nothing compelling for the price. It uses a clamp in front to hold either a fork skewer or a thru-axle tube; the piece is easy to tighten with a knob and makes switching between the two extremely simple. But you’ll have to take the skewer or tube with you, because you get no way to lock them to the rack. Putting this assembly together every time you mount and dismount the bike seems cumbersome, as well, and on the road in our tests, the HighSpeed didn’t hold our bikes as solidly as some of the other racks.

The Swagman Race Ready is a beefy extruded-aluminum wheel-mount rack with a ratcheting arm, similar to those used on many tray-style hitch racks, that clamps over the front wheel to secure the bike with no frame contact. Six simple thumbscrews hold the rack to the crossbars, but although you can lock the bikes to the rack, you have no way to lock the rack to the vehicle. In our test-drives the Race Ready didn’t hold the bikes as securely as the Yakima HighRoad and RockyMounts TomaHawk did.

The Thule Sidearm 594XT was our least favorite roof rack overall. Like the Swagman Race Ready, it’s a wheel-mount design that secures the bike with a ratcheting arm, with no frame contact. But it needed much more assembly than others in our tests, often requiring three hands and hampered by instructions that were missing steps. Moreover, in our test-drives, the bikes wobbled more than with any other wheel-mount design we tried.

Pickup truck carriers

The rack models we tested for pickup beds were wildly different in design, but they each performed brilliantly in their own way. The Yakima CrashPad was a favorite at bike shops with a lot of off-road and mountain-bike clientele. It couldn’t be any simpler: It’s a padded cover for your tailgate. You just throw your bikes in the back with the front wheel hanging over the pad. Bumpers on the ends of the CrashPad keep the bikes from sliding too far, and a flap in the front allows access to the tailgate release. It’s not as kind to bikes as our pick, the Inno Velo Gripper, and the handlebars end up in the driver’s line of sight. But the CrashPad also doesn’t require you to touch your bike’s filthy, trail-ridden frame any more than absolutely necessary. Zero fiddling here for a good price.

Tie Racks and Organizers for neckties

Whether you are looking to save space, have a great display, need lots of room for ties– luckily there are plenty of different choices. I was shocked too. There is a motorized tie rack, a twirl-a-tie, and some that give you a great view of your ties. There are wall mounted ones, ones that hang from wire shelves. Be sure to pick the one that suits you the best– some people really prefer the wall mount..

Linen suits are lightweight and casual. You will find this type of suit at summer weddings or in tropical climates. The downside to linen is that it wrinkles easily.

Selecting colors and patterns

A suit that’s appropriate for a wedding can be very different from one you’ll wear to work or dinner. If you’re buying your first suit, get a plain navy suit or a navy suit with light pinstripes. This will be your most versatile suit. As you build your suit collection, add gray or black dress suits, then browns and earth tones. You can also include patterns like pinstripes, windowpanes and light plaids in your growing wardrobe. Stay away from fad colors and patterns.

Suits are investments and designed to last, so you don’t want to end up with an entire closet of purple velvet or red plaid suits. Stick with the more traditional designs when you buy suits to get the most out of your collection. For more expert advice, stop into a JoS. A. Bank store near you and work with our men’s suit experts to find your perfect suit.

Measure a shirt that fits you well in the collar. Lay the collar flat, measure from center of top collar button to end of buttonhole. Number of inches equals your neck size.

Measure around fullest part of your chest. Keeping the tape just under your arms, extend around your shoulder blades, holding tape level.

What it’s good for

Nordstrom is like an upscale Macy’s.  A quick glance at their brands (Hugo Boss, John Varvatos) and you can tell immediately that it’s going to cost more shopping there.  But their in house brands are superb.  Their more modern leaning house brands like Calibrate and 190offer quality and great fits at reasonable prices.  Plus their Nordstrom Trim Fit dress shirts are extremely well put together.  Nordstrom isn’t perpetually on sale like Macy’s, but when they do discount, it’s worth it.

What they’re good for

Jeans, sweaters, casual and dress blazers, casual shirts, and finding cheaper alternatives to J. Crew stuff.

They’re all owned by the same company and they each have specific target audiences.  Old Navy goes after the bargain family shopper, Gap is the place for still stylish but still mostly affordable foundational pieces,  and Banana Republic touts themselves as affordable luxury.  Unlike Banana Republic, you can’t buy a suit at The Gap or Old Navy, but you can buy pretty well made blazers at all three.  Yep, even at Old Navy.  Just make sure to take them to your tailor when you’re done, and consider ear plugs for the shopping trip to keep the screaming kids from giving you a headache.

Carrying our bicycles

Some cyclists carry their bicycles inside their cars, but most choose to carry them on a roof-mounted rack or one attached to the rear of their car.

Whichever you choose you should make sure the attachment is strong enough to take the weight of the bicycle or bicycles.

Carrying the bikes inside the car

If you drive a vehicle that has sufficient cabin or boot space, and you are prepared to partly dismantle your bicycle, such as removing the wheels, you might prefer to carry your bicycle inside your car.

While that eliminates the need for an external bike rack it still needs to be safely stowed.

Even inside the car a bicycle needs to be restrained, particularly if it’s not in a separate part of the car such as the boot.

An unrestrained bike can quickly become a dangerous object flying around the cabin and cause serious injury to occupants in the event of a crash or a sharp change of direction.

Using something as simple as an octopus strap can prevent a bike from moving.

Rear mount

If you choose to carry your bikes on the rear of your vehicles, the rack you use must be specifically designed for attachment to the rear. Usually that means to the towball or the boot.

If it’s mounted on the towball make sure the load on the towball doesn’t exceed the maximum allowable specified by the car manufacturer. To find out what that load is refer to your car’s owner’s manual.

Some rear-mounted bike racks are designed to swing out of the way to allow you access to the rear of the vehicle or the boot. Others are fixed, which can make them inconvenient if you need access to the rear of the vehicle.

Owners of sedans, hatches or station wagons might prefer a bike rack designed to attach to the rear of their vehicles using straps.

When you mount your bicycles on the rear of your car make sure they don’t obscure the car’s registration plate or the rear lights, as that is a contravention of state laws.

If the plate is obscured you must use an auxiliary plate, which can be obtained from your state’s registration branch for a small fee, and it must be lit so it’s visible at night.

Keep your bikes secure

Bikes perched on top of our cars, or on the back, are in full view of anyone who might want to steal them.

To keep them secure lock them to the rack and lock the rack to the car. That way they will still be there when you return to your car.

How-To Videos > Just for Kids

Do you find ties strewn everywhere? In a heap or in a pile in your closet? Tell your spouse to clean up in a delightful way by getting your kids involved. They can help you build and decorate a tie rack to organize any mess.

Sketch out a design for the base board. Get creative as you want.

Clamp the board down and cut out edges using a jig saw (aka saber saw).

To cut inside pieces, drill a hole to make space for the jig saw. Be patient while cutting along curves or the blade could break.
