Default Unistrut profiles

Hi guys.
Checking in my garage I realized that my pipe clamps were becoming rusted because they were placed in a humid place.
I collected some leftover pieces of unistrut profiles that are used for the electricians workers to install conduits and attached them to the back of my garage door.
The pipe clamps are attached to the unistrut by using a dedicated clamp.
In the near future, I hope, I will change the screw´s nut for a wingnut to make it easy to remove the pipe clamps and put them back into position.

How are you attaching the clamps to the strut Alexis? I've made hangers for all my other clamps but my pipe clamps are still leaned together in a corner.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I'd be interested too, mine are leaning in a corner.

And here's another use for Unistrut

More to the point, is this an overhead garage door? *shock*

Well, if I'd read the original post more carefully.............. And the thumb screws are used so that no tools are required to loosen the clamp and remove the pipe. Ingenious, thank you for the idea.

Hi, Charles.

Tomp913 has the answer.
No, Danny van. It is a normal garage door. By using some magnets I attach some small tools to it.

Tom, these profiles have many options to be used.
At home I used them to install galvanized 1/2" and 3/4" pipes for water consumption from the superficial tanks to my homemade hydropneumatic.
