Alert!  Read This Before Buying FastTrack!

Rubbermaid FastTrack hooks don’t attach to the garage wall. They attach to the Rubbermaid FastTrack rail. The beauty of this system is that you can easily move the hooks around without drills and screws. Just unlock, move, and lock again. Look at the images to see how this works.

A Complete Guide to the Rubbermaid FastTrack Storage SystemThe Rubbermaid FastTrack is the third garage wall organization system I’m studying for my own garage. The Proslat Slatwall and the Gladiator Slatwall garage organization systems are still attractive contenders. But right out of the gate, I can see FastTrack is going to be a tough competitor to Proslat and Gladiator. It’s tough, sturdy, durable and seriously cost-effective.

The FastTrack system is fairly-priced, sturdy and offers a healthy choice of hooks, bins, cabinets and shelves. It’s obvious that Rubbermaid tested the garage storage system on real garage owners.

The Rubbermaid FastTrack hooks are hefty and well-shaped. The shelves have edge lips to keep stuff from falling off. You can buy a vertical sub-system to hang bins and sports balls.

You will find many similarities between Gladiator Slatwall and the Rubbermaid FastTrack. The FastTrack system is less expensive.

Here’s a partial list of the thousands of items you can store on a FastTrack:

  • auto fluids
  • cleaning fluids
  • gasoline
  • paper towels
  • pesticides

  • brooms
  • extension cords
  • hoses
  • ladders
  • pitchforks
  • rakes
  • ropes
  • shovels
  • weed tools

  • hammers
  • leaf blowers
  • lawn edgers
  • power drills
  • string trimmers
  • baseballs
  • baseball hats
  • basketballs
  • bikes
  • duffel bags
  • footballs
  • golf bags
  • helmets
  • hockey gear
  • scooters
  • sports balls
  • tennis rackets

  • bolts
  • nails
  • nuts
  • screws
  • washers

  • baby carriages
  • beach chairs
  • coolers
  • sports equipment
  • toys

An Easy Way to Get Started with Rubbermaid FastTrack

The easiest way to get started with the FastTrack organization system is to get the tool hanging kit.

Learn more about this option in the Editor’s Choice article below.

FastTrack tool hanging kit

A Simple Rail System to Store Almost Everything

FastTrack Horizontal Rail

The heart of the FastTrack Rail system is the FastTrack Rail. These rails range from 32″ to 84″ wide. They are a proprietary channel design.

You mount the rails horizontally on your garage wall studs. You can mount FastTrack rails on 16″ or 24″ studs. The rail’s mounting holes are pre-drilled.

The rail kit comes with all mounting hardware. Accessories lock onto the rail.

After you get a couple of these rails on the wall, open the Rubbermaid toy chest of storage solutions.

Rubbermaid sells many rail storage options. Keep reading to learn the whole story.

The horizontal system accepts hooks, a ball basket and vertical rails. The vertical rail system accepts shelves, bins and cabinets.

The Horizontal Rail Accepts a Huge Variety of Hooks

Each of these hooks is suited to carrying out  multiple garage organizing duties. Read below for more information about each hook’s shape and load capacities. FastTrack also offers a wire mesh basket and a ball rack.

Hang Bikes up to 50 Lb.

FastTrack offers both a vertical and a horizontal bike hook. You only need one horizontal bike hook to carry a bike frame. Both hooks carry 50 lb.

Vertical Bike Hook

Hanging a bike on the Vertical Bike Hook

Rubbermaid calls it the Vertical Bike Hook, because it allows you to hang your front tire from the wall so that your bike hangs vertically from the hook..

The Vertical Bike Hook has a nice meaty grip and a rubber cover to protect the bike wheel.

The hook supports bikes up to 26 inches and 50 lb. and measures 15 W. x 4.5 H. x 1 D. inches

You might also be interested in learning other ways to store your family’s bicycles here.

Check out the Horizontal Bike Hook below.

“5 Stars The Perfect Way to Store Bicycles! July 4, 2018 I have 13 bicycles on 2 walls in my garage and over the last 30 years have found the Rubbermaid system is by far, the best way to store bicycles.”

Horizontal Bike Hook

Wall Hook

Usually you see two hooks holding a bike horizontally across a wall.

Rubbermaid designed the Horizontal Bike Hook with a wide surface area to enable you to steady a bike on just one hook.

The Horizontal Bike Hook spreads the load across two surfaces. This hook carries bikes from 12 to 26 inches.

The rubber coating protects the bike’s frame and paint.

The hook is well thought out. You can fold it against the wall when it’s  not in use. This beats running into an empty hook.

The Horizontal Bike Hook carries up to 50 lb. and measures 8 W. x 10.4 H. x 12.8 D. inches.

Hang Drills, Mallets, Rakes, Small Hoses, Electrical Cords, Beach Chairs and Ropes Up to 25 Lb.

The FastTrack Compact Hook is a shorter double storage hook. It holds its cargo close to the wall.

This is good for steadying heavier items such as power drills. The scoop in the hook gives support, and keeps contents from falling out.

Hang a power drill on a Compact HookUse the Compact Hook to hang bike helmets, hand-held power tools, cords, small hoses, camping chairs and ropes.

The hook’s rubber coating protects objects from scratching.

The Compact Hook holds up to 25 lb and measures 3.1 W x 8.4 H x 3.1 D inches.

Note that hoses can get heavy, so check out hose weight guide before using a 25 lb. load hook to carry a big hose.

Hang Coolers, Hammers, Small Hoses and Hand Tools Up to 25 Lb.

There’s something very “right” about Rubbermaid offering a Cooler Hook.

To me, the cooler hook says “We ‘get’ our customers. We understand that they like to camp and relax in the back yard. They want easy access to outdoor entertainment gear such as coolers.”

Especially because coolers are one of the bulkier items I need to store.

A small cooler on the Cooler Hook

But there’s something very odd about a “cooler hook” that holds a cylindrical drink cooler.

My cooler is a bulky rectangle. It would not fit on this hook.

Gladiator sells a storage bin holder that doubles as a cooler holder that Rubbermaid might emulate.

The FastTrack Cooler Hook holds 25 lb. and measures 4.2 W. x 6.5 H. x 3 D. inches

The hooks turn up slightly at the end to prevent anything from slipping off.

It’s a very good shape to hang small hoses,  hoses, pails and hand tools such as hammers and mallets.

Hang Hoses, Electrical Cords and Rope up to 50 Lb.

The Hose Hook holds up to 50 lb.

The Rubbermaid FastTrack Hose Hook has a really tall end lip to keep the hose from slipping off.

The hose resting area is 10 in. wide. tip is 6″ high.

Any hose weighing 50 lb. will fit comfortably on this hook.

The Hose Hook is also perfect for storing electrical extension cords, beach chairs and rope.The Ladder Hook holding a ladder and a step ladderHang Ladders, Backyard Games, Step Stools, Yard Equipment and Power Tools up to 50 Lb.

The hard part about storing ladders is having enough surface area for the top part of the ladder to rest comfortably on the hook.

The Rubbermaid FastTrack Ladder Hook offers a deep resting area to hang your ladder. The ladder rests on a 13 in. long area.

The rubber coating protects and grips the ladder surface.

The Ladder Hook will hold up to 50 lb.

Use one Ladder Hook to store the ladder vertically.

Use two Ladder Hooks to store it horizontally.

Rubbermaid also suggests the Ladder Hook for hanging croquet mallets, step stools and garden power tools such as leaf blowers and lawn trimmers.

Learn more about how to store a ladder here.

Finally a place to put the badminton rackets!

Hang Tennis Rackets, Baby Carriages, Shovels, Brooms, Scooters and Toys up to 50 Lb.

Hang items up to 10 in. wide on the rubber-coated Multi-Purpose Hook.

This is an extra deep and hook that holds 50 lb., so you can throw almost any garage item at it. The Multi-Purpose hook will hold toys, brooms, beach chairs, leaf blowers, skate boards and power trimmers.

The hooks have protective lips to prevent items from falling.

The Multi-Hook is a double hook, with a 3 inch gap between the  two horizontal parts of the hook. Use the gap to hang hammers or badminton rackets, drills, leaf blowers, lawn edgers, string trimmers, rakes and other garden tools.

Power Tool Hook

Store Trimmers, Edgers, Lawn Trailers and Weed Eaters up to 50 Lb.

The Power Tool Hook gives you 15 inches of depth to hang yard power tools and bigger gear like cloth lawn tractor trailers.

The Power Tool Hook locks firmly into the rail system but you can also mount this hook directly into a stud.

Two hooks grab the long part of the tool you’re hanging in their curved design.

If you have a set of rechargeable tools, you can line up a set of Power Tool Hooks so they’re all near the recharge power source.

This hook carries up to 50 lb. and measures 5.1 W. x 3.8 H. x 15.8 D. inches.

Store Baseball Bats, Hockey Sticks, Brooms and Rakes up to 50 Lb.

The horizontal rail sporting the S-Hook actually has two hooksThe 2-Handle S-Hook is really two hooks that latch onto the Rubbermaid FastTrack Rail system.

The S-Hooks are good for hanging anything with a long handle, or that has a long, tapered design.

Use it to store baseball bats, skis and rakes, paint rollers, shovels and hoes.

The S-Hook holds a combined weight of 50 lb.

Store Extension Cords, Toys, Duffel Bags, Hoses and Pitchforks Up to 50 Lb.

Hang a duffel bag on the Utility Hook

The Utility Hook has a generous cradle shape that makes a big letter “C.”

It scoops up and easily carries a 100 ft. ft. extension cord.

Use the Utility Hook to hang any tool with a long handle and wide head such as brooms, sledgehammers and pitchforks.

The Utility Hook is also a great alternative for hanging ladders and fat tire bicycles. The hooks have rubber coatings to protect stored items and can carry up to 50 lb.

Store Sports Balls

The Vertical Ball Storage tube provides easy access through the bungee cords

You can easily find the ball you want in a vertical tube or an organized stack.

The Vertical Ball Rack combines a tube an da stack to give you access to basketballs and soccer balls.

You can just as easily access the one on top as the one on the bottom.

The Vertical Ball Rack is a steel tube. Bungee cords hold in the balls.

You can push the cords out of the way to get the ball you want.

You can see all the balls in the rack.

The Vertical Ball Rack holds up to 50 lbs. of kick balls, volleyballs, footballs, soccer balls and basketballs.

Store Cans, Bottles, Towels, Toys, Baseballs and Gardening Tools

I prefer solid over wire bins. Solid bins don’t allow stuff to fall through the sides and bottom.

The Wire Basket holding balls and mitts

But you can easily see what’s in a wire bin.

Just resist the temptation to store something in wire that will fall. Use this wire bin to hold gardening tools and plastic bottles.

The basket is 24 in. wide and 13″ deep, so there’s a lot of room for storing cleaning products, baseball mitts or a pile of tennis balls.

However, the grids are too large for golf balls.

Add Shelves, Cabinets and Bins Using the Vertical Subsystem

The Vertical Rack sub-system shelf has lipped sides

Your FastTrack Rail sits horizontally across your garage wall.

The Vertical Rails allow you to add shelves and cabinets above or below the horizontal track.

The FastTrack system is not required to mount the vertical racks.

You can install them directly into the wall studs.

But the advantage of the FastTrack rail is to allow you to easily move pieces without screws or nails. So it’s easier to use the vertical system with the horizontal tracks.

You can place Rubbermaid FastTrack shelves, cabinets and bins on the vertical rail.

But read on for important information about the FastTrack cabinets.

The vertical accessories have tabs on the back.

Hook the tabs into the vertical rails to hang these pieces. The Vertical System components come with mounting hardware. The Vertical Rail includes these accessories:

Store Bottles, Paper Towels, Garden Tools and Cleansers up to 25 Lb.

The Access Bin holding cleaning supplies

The FastTrack Rail Access Bin is an open-topped storage box. The front opens like a mailbox door.

The bin holds up to 25 lbs. You can hang the bin anywhere along the vertical rail.

And you can move it somewhere else in about 20 seconds flat.

Rubbermaid suggests using the bin for sports equipment, gardening supplies and household items.

I just find this bin brilliant in its simplicity.

You can access contents from the top or from the front door.

Get a set of bins to coordinate garage storage. Use them for gardening, cleaning and auto maintenance supplies.

The Access Bin holds up to 25 lb. and measures 16.2 W. x 9.8 H. x 2.2 D. inches.

Not Recommended; FastTrack Utility Resin Bin

Not Recommended: The Utility Resin Bin

The Resin Bin is an outlier in the FastTrack lineup.

It will successfully carry bottles and supplies, but it doesn’t hold its shape.

It appears that this bin didn’t make it all the way through Quality Control when Marketing said “Ship it!”

So long as your expectations are sufficiently low, it’ll work for you.

But the Rail Access Bin (above) might hold up better for you.

Store Screws, Nuts, Nails, Washers and Bolts up to 25 Lb.

The Blox bins carry multiple nuts and screws
Buy multiple sets of 5 bins to sort screws, nuts, bolts and other small items
The Blox Bin lids are transparent

When you find a perfectly good screw on the floor, what do you do with it?

For 30 years, I’ve always put a found screw on the nearest flat surface. That’s how I ended up with the mess of a garage that drove me crazy. Randomly putting little things here and there, until all I had was clutter.

Little items like screws and nails should be in a dust-protected home at eye level. That’s why I love the Rubbermaid FastTrack Rail Bench Blox Kit. And no, I have no idea where they got that name.

I really dislike dust and bug junk all over my nuts and bolts. So I always look for closed-lid hardware solutions.

The Blox kit keeps the hardware boxes at eye level.

The lids are transparent. You know exactly which bin has the hardware you need. You can see inside the angled boxes. Lids to keep out the dust.

So instead of putting that found screw on the nearest flat surface, it’s just as easy to put it in the Blox kit box. Each set of 5 bins holds 25 lbs., more than enough capacity for 5 boxes of nuts, bolts, screws and nails.

Update: One FastTrack Cabinets is a “Buy”  Store Hazardous Materials and Pesticides in the FastTrack Wall Cabinets

FastTrack Tool Cabinet Bundle with Free Ladder and Hose Hooks

Updated January 10, 2019. I originally cautioned against buying FastTrack cabinets because there were so many complaints that the cabinets were damaged during shipping. The MDF Wall Cabinet is still on the “Don’t Buy” list. But the crazy-strong Tool Cabinet Bundle is an excellent cabinet I do recommend.

It’s not a low-cost product, but it is competitive with high-end cabinets that don’t have the advantage of simply hooking onto the FastTrack rails.  And the competitors’ cabinets don’t come with free ladder and hose hooks.

The FastTrack Tool Cabinet is tough and durable yet really nice to look at. The Tool Cabinet holds 1,750 lb. That’s right. 1,750 pounds.

The doors have a magnet close, and support a padlock. So now we do have a FastTrack solution to lock up those dangerous pesticides.

The crazy-strong Tool Cabinet Bundle is an excellent cabinet I do recommend.

Original article continues below. Cabinets are a must for protecting your family from hazardous materials. Use caution when shopping for the Rubbermaid FastTrack Vertical Rail cabinets. Most FastTrack Rail are tough metal and plastic. The cabinets are MDF (fiberboard). They don’t handle shipping well.

Beware that the vertical system wall cabinets don’t have a great reputation for surviving the shipping process.

I’ve read many complaints written by cabinet customers who received damaged wall cabinets. To their credit, these are smart-looking and strong cabinets. If you buy the Rubbermaid FastTrack system, you might want the cabinets.

If you buy these cabinets, be prepared for a few Amazon shipping return cycles. Or, get the cabinets at a brick & mortar store. Carry them home in your car. These cabinets don’t survive shipping well. Customers give them high marks once they’re installed.

Customers give high marks to just about every other FastTrack accessory.

When buying FastTrack cabinets, have patience, or buy locally.

Store Cleaning Supplies, Auto Supplies, Flashlights, Paint, Tools and Hardware up to 50 Lb.

Store auto fluids and cleaning supplies on the vertical rack sub-system

As a rule, I prefer bins to shelves.

When a bin gets overloaded, it won’t accept more stuff. When a shelf gets overloaded, stuff falls off.

So I have to give applause to Rubbermaid for recognizing this flaw and fixing it!

The Rubbermaid FastTrack Rail Shelf has lipped edges. The edges help to prevent the shelf contents from falling off of the sides. I love the shelf edges.

They’re a tiny engineering fix that make a huge difference.

The FastTrack Rail Large Shelf is just less than three feet wide. The shelf has a 50 lb. capacity, so you could store a little bit more than 4 1-gallon water jugs on it. The Rubbermaid FastTrack Rail Small Shelf holds 25 lbs. and is half the size.

Rubbermaid suggests using the shelves for motor oil, flashlights and cleaning supplies.

Store All Your Gardening Tools

I would love to get this Gardening Kit for my birthday

The Gardening Kit is a 16-piece solution that would make me super happy if I received it for my Birthday or the Holidays.

This gardening organization system includes four 48 inch rails, 6 hooks, 2 baskets and mounting hardware.

It offers 192 inches (16 feet) of hanging space. The Gardening Kit is an all-in-one solution that includes mounting hooks for:

  • a wheelbarrow
  • a shovel
  • a rake
  • a hoe
  • an extension cord
  • a hose
  • a ladder
  • a heavy rake
  • fertilizer
  • a string trimmer
  • hand tools
  • bottled sprays
  • a broom

You can follow the suggested hooks and bin placements. Or you can move the hooks and baskets anywhere on the horizontal rails.

That’s the beauty of the FastTrack system.

Rubbermaid FastTrack Installation Hints

The FastTrack rails are easy enough to install. One person with a drill should be able to install the rail in a few minutes.

Rubbermaid suggests mounting horizontal rails at 4 ft. high and a 7 ft. 3 in. high.

You need 16 in. stud spacing to get the best load capacities.

If you’re mounting the rails on 24 in. studs, reduce the load by a third.

Do NOT install a 32 in. wide rail on 24 in. wide studs. A 32 in. rail must hit three studs to be secure.

The vertical rails clip onto the horizontal rails. But you must do this at a stud to screw the vertical rails into the wall below the attachment.

People Also Ask

Rubbermaid FastTrack Storage System (Video Demonstration)

One day your garage is the envy of everyone on your block and the next thing you know, you’ve got clutter everywhere. It doesn’t take long for the crap you accumulate to start taking over.

That’s what happened in my garage, so I started looking at some wall storage systems before things got really out of hand.

I picked up a 6-piece FastTrack rail tool hanging starter kit, which has two 32″ rail sections, installation hardware and four different types of hooks.

I wanted to see how Rubbermaid compared to everything else on the market and today I’m going to share my thoughts

The Rubbermaid Garage System

Rubbermaid has been making storage products for years, but nearly a decade ago, they came out with the wall storage system.

Here’s the trick: there are two systems, Garage and Closet.

I totally understand trying to capitalize on name recognition. If something is doing well, you want to capitalize on it.

Where I think they dropped the ball is that the two systems aren’t compatible with each other. Both are good products in their own right, but it could get confusing to customers to have a Closet accessory and it won’t work on your Garage rail.

Thankfully they’re usually in two different sections of the store, so people aren’t likely to stumble on the wrong one by mistake.

So for this article, we’re obviously going to be talking about the garage wall storage system.

Here’s a couple of design elements that jumped out at me:

The Rail

One of the things I really like about the Rubbermaid system is the black plastic cover that slides over the metal rail.

While everyone else uses heavy plastic on their track storage system, Rubbermaid went in a different direction.

The only plastic you’ll find is the cover on top.

The rail itself is a heavy steel molded into a ‘W’ shape. The two channels have screw holes every inch apart all the way down the rail.

Because it’s made of steel, the rail is thinner and sleeker than anything else on the market. It also gives it a super high weight capacity, but we’ll get to that in the next section.

Total width is only 2″, with an additional quarter of an inch once you add the plastic cover.

Bare steel doesn’t look that good, so Rubbermaid added a molded plastic sleeve that goes over the rail.

Rubbermaid FastTrack rail

I really like the idea of the black plastic sleeve, but I wish that it didn’t include the Rubbermaid logo.

On a simple 4′ or 8′ track, it’s not bad. Imagine a wall full of rails and you could easily see that logo dozens of times. It’s not a sticker, so unfortunately you can’t peel it off.

Additionally, you can’t buy the rail covers separately. If you damage one, then you’ll need purchase a completely new rail. The hooks won’t attach correctly without the rail cover attached.

The Hooks

The hooks have a C-shape that’s common to most other garage storage systems. The larger hooks also have a locking latch that clamps down on the rail to secure them in place.

The smaller hooks, like this Cooler Hook, don’t have a locking clamp, so they’re held in place by the two notches on the bottom of the hook.

The good (and bad thing) about this design is that this hook isn’t going to move once it’s locked into place.

If you want to re-position a Rubbermaid hook, you’ll need to lift the hook off the rail and re-attach it in the new location.

It makes minor adjustments a little harder, but I really like knowing that the stuff I hang on my garage wall isn’t going to move once I put it there.

The heavy-duty hooks also included an additional screw hole on the bottom for additional support. It’ll give you the option to really lock them in place and make your setup more secure.

The hooks are covered in a foamy-looking material that appears softer than it really is. They call it their “soft grip” handles but apparently we have different definitions of what “soft” really is.

In all honesty, it’s there to provide a little bit of traction when you hang stuff on it. It’ll also save any delicate surfaces from getting scratched up all the time.

How Much Weight Can Rubbermaid Hold?

I see one question pop up on forums and reviews any time the system is mentioned:

Rubbermaid rails can hold a lot of weight. A 4′ Rubbermaid rail has a weight capacity of up to 1,750 lbs per rail.

That’s over 400 lbs per foot!

Unboxing the Rubbermaid Starter Kit

I don’t normally do those unboxing type of posts, but since this is a starter kit, I might as well.

As I mentioned earlier, you can buy the rails and hooks separately, or you can pick up one of Rubbermaid’s starter kits to make it easy to get started.

Rubbermaid FastTrack Garage Storage System Tool Hanging Kit

Here’s what you get:

  • Two 32″ rails
  • Installation hardware
  • One Multi-Purpose Hook
  • One Power Tool Hook
  • One Utility Hook
  • One II-Handle Hook

Let’s take a look at the hooks in a little more detail since that’s ultimately what makes or breaks a wall storage system.

Power Tool Hook

The Power Tool Hook is easily my favorite of the four hooks. Personally, I have all of my drills either in a drawer or in a cabinet, but this would let me hang them up for quick access. I can see how it would save a lot of time for stuff I use on a daily basis.

Rubbermaid FastTrack Power Tool Hook

The gap between the hook arms is a little wide for my light-duty stuff, but it should easily be able to accommodate heavy drills and battery packs.

Total weight capacity for this hook is 50 lbs.

Multi-Purpose Hook

I think everybody has something like the Multi-Purpose hook in their lineup. In my garage, I’ve got almost every tool I own hanging from hooks like these.

Rubbermaid FastTrack Multi-Purpose Hook

What I like about this hook is just how long it is. Remember that the has an incredibly high weight limit, so you can pile 50 pounds on each multi-purpose hook.

That’s about the weight of nine shovels, by the way.

Utility Hook

The Utility Hook is a deeply scooped version of the Multi-Purpose Hook. It’s the perfect depth for hoses and extension cords so you can hang them up without needing another gadget to keep them from getting tangled.

Rubbermaid FastTrack Utility Hook

At first, I thought this was another niche product. It’s very similar to the Hose Hook (which has less of a scoop), so I’m not sure why they have to have both designs.

Personally, I’d use this instead of the Hose Hook for both my hoses and extension cords. But that’s about the only place I could see using this hook. For most other stuff, I’d use the Compact Hook instead (not part of this starter kit).

Total weight capacity for this hook is 50 lbs.

II-Handle Hook

The II-Handle Hook is my least favorite design of them all. I don’t think that the friction is enough between the grippy part of the hook and the handle of the broom or whatever I’m trying to hang up.

Rubbermaid FastTrack II-Handle hook

I like that you can hang two tools up on one hook, but I just hate the way it looks overall.

Total weight capacity for this hook is 50 lbs.

What Accessories Work With Rubbermaid ?

I wanted to know which accessories would work with rails, so I devised a simple little test.

  1. I bought a hook and track piece from Rubbermaid , Gladiator GearTrack, Craftsman VersaTrack and the Kobalt storage rail system found at Lowe’s.
  2. I mounted each on my wall and tested each brand’s hook to see if it fit and if it could actually hang anything reliably.

I hate when I go shopping and I’m never really sure if what I was looking at would work the way I wanted it to when I got home. This experiment cost me about $100 in total, but it really helped me decide what the best track storage system was for my garage.

I hope you like what I discovered.

Does Rubbermaid work with Gladiator GearTrack?

Is Gladiator compatible with Rubbermaid FastTrack

Gladiator hooks secure to a GearTrack or system in two ways. First there’s the typical C-channel on the back of the hook to slide over the track itself.

The second way is the locking tab at the top of the hook, as you see in these pictures.

Obviously those hooks have nothing to hook into on the Rubbermaid system. From an aesthetic perspective, it’s small, so you won’t really notice it unless you’re looking for it.

Without that hook locking it in place, the Gladiator hook slides freely along the channel. It also wobbles from side to side and doesn’t feel very secure.

It’s secure enough to hang items from, but you want to be very careful when taking anything off the hook. It’s very easy to pull the entire hook off the track while you grab whatever was on it.

Compatible with Rubbermaid ? Yes, but not secure

Does Rubbermaid Work With Craftsman VersaTrack?

Is Craftsman compatible with Rubbermaid FastTrack

I’m beginning to think that Craftsman’s biggest strength is its versatility. Once again, the Craftsman hooks worked much better on a different manufacturer’s track system than I expected it would.

The C-channel on the Craftsman hook fits neatly over the channel. The only challenge is the locking hook on the bottom.

On the Craftsman hook, there’s a small grey knob on the front that you turn to lock the hook in place. With the hook set to the ‘unlocked’ position. the Rubbermaid channel just barely fits underneath.

It’s a snug fit, but not quite locked in place.

What I suggest is to take a small file or heavy-grit sandpaper and sand down the inside of the hook about a millimeter. Then the lock can engage and secure the hook.

Not to say it’s perfect, but I think it’s an honestly workable solution.

Compatible with Rubbermaid ? Yes! (with slight modification)

Will Kobalt Garage Hooks Work With Rubbermaid ?

Is Kobalt compatible with Rubbermaid FastTrack

I’m beginning to think that the only thing the Kobalt hooks are going to work with is their own track system.

The Kobalt track is made of a rubberized plastic, so the hooks stay in place largely due to the friction of the track on the hook. All of the other manufacturers rely on the friction of the hook, or some other locking mechanism, on the track.

The hooks, on the other hand, have a slight bend to the top part of their C-channel and a flat portion on the bottom.

When you try to put a smooth hook on a smooth track, you can imagine what happens.

It falls to the floor.

Compatible with Rubbermaid ? Definitely not!

How to Install Rubbermaid Rails

The Rubbermaid rails are easy to install, but there’s a little more to it than you might think.

You see, in order to get that incredibly high weight capacity, they have to be secured better than you would with some of the other systems.

Like other systems, it installation starts by lining up the rail with the center of your wall studs. Assuming your studs are 16″ on center, you should be able to secure each 32″ to three studs and each 48″ rail to four studs.

In between each rail, the installation kit includes drywall anchors for added support.

In the image above, you can see the five points to secure this 32″ rail. Points marked with an ‘A’ are where you’ll attach the rail with screws into the wall studs. Points marked as ‘B’ will need the drywall anchors.

If you’re installing the rail into a concrete block, just use five Tapcon concrete anchors.

I had a little trouble getting the plastic cover to snap on to the steel rail. That’s actually one of the more frequent comments I’ve read in reviews.

The trick is that you need to fully snap the top in before working on the bottom. Once you figure that out, it goes a lot quicker, but I can see how that might be a challenge in tight spaces.

The installation was a breeze overall. However, I wish that Rubbermaid included some sort of endcap option to give it a cleaner look.

Installation FAQ’s

Can rails be cut? Yes. Rubbermaid recommends , although it’s not recommended cutting them smaller than 32″. That will still let them attach to three wall studs. Anything smaller than that and the overall weight capacity goes down substantially.

Will the rails attach to Rubbermaid’s Roughneck shed? No. Rubbermaid definitely does not recommend this. The Roughneck shed’s walls can’t support the weight.

Is the installation hardware included? Yes, i you buy one of the kits. If you buy the rails on their own, then you’ll need to buy that separately as well.

Rubbermaid in my Garage

I installed the Rubbermaid rail in a small section of my garage wall next to the door to my kitchen. This section of wall is my test-bed for new products that I’m not sure will make the final cut in my garage.

In my garage, this would be a nice area to put some of the stuff that I would grab on my way to the car, like keys, a hat or an extra pair of sunglasses. Personally, it doesn’t really work to hang tools there, but its fine for demonstration purposes.

Update: I Moved My Rubbermaid to My Laundry Room

One of the things I really liked about the wall storage system is that it looks a bit more upscale and refined than the Gladiator or Craftsman systems.

For my house, it’s not what I was looking for in my garage, but it’s great for more visible area in my house.

Like my laundry room.

The hooks that the Rubbermaid starter kit are a great option for hanging mops, dusters and even a step ladder. For more information on the Rubbermaid Ladder Hook, check out my article on how to store a ladder in your garage the right way.

Rubbermaid Starter Kits

Rubbermaid has four starter kits that you can find anywhere, but you’ll see other versions pop up at specific stores or around the holidays. The kits range from a 5-piece kit all the way to a 15-piece kit.

If you need a shorter length of rail, then one of the Rubbermaid starter kits might be just what you’re looking for. While you can cut one of the steel rails, a few of the starter kits come with shorter rails by default.

5-Piece Starter Kit

The 5-piece and 6-piece starter kits are almost identical except for a slight change in which hooks are included.

The 5-piece kit includes the Multi-Purpose hook which is great for holding stepladders or multiple shovels or rakes on the same hook.

6-Piece Starter Kit

By contrast, the 6-piece starter kit swaps out the Multi-Purpose hook and includes the Utility Hook and an additional One Handle Hook. The Utility Hook is great for holding larger tools like lawn edgers or hedge trimmers.

15-Piece Starter Kit

The 15-Piece Starter Kit is special because it has three four foot rails instead of the shorter rails you’ll see in other starter kits.

If you’ve already got a setup in your home, this is probably a great fit for you. It comes with three types of hooks: the Multi-Purpose, Utility and Cooler Hooks.

Tool Hanging Kit

I wish I’d seen the Tool Hanging Kit before I bought my starter kit. It’s my favorite because it has four of the hooks that I’d use most in my garage. It’s the only one to come with a Power Tool Hook and also includes two 32″ rails.

Conclusion

Overall, I really like the Rubbermaid system, even though it isn’t what I went with in my garage.

The rails are incredibly strong and have the best weight capacity of any track storage system, by far. The design is sleek and clean, for the most part and it leaves a lot of white space on the wall.

But there were a couple of things that I wasn’t crazy about that ultimately made me go in a different direction.

The steel rails aren’t as easy to cut to odd lengths as other manufacturers. I’m very comfortable using a table saw to cut wood or plastic, but cutting metal just seems different somehow.

There also isn’t the wide variety of accessories that you’ll find in other manufacturers either. Don’t get me wrong, the hooks that the has are top notch and I love the design. I just wish there were more of them.

That said, if those minor flaws aren’t a big deal to you, I definitely recommend checking out one of the Rubbermaid FastTrack Starter Kits. They come in a variety of different rail lengths and hook selections.

For more on the wall storage system I use in my garage, check out my review of Gladiator’s GearTrack and GearWall systems. I’ve been using the system for the past two years so there’s a lot of detailed user experiences in there that you won’t find anyplace else.

Hooks rubbermaid

I would ask ok. and then hey, you. He is the boss of my folder and spouses, and I don't give a shit about him from the highest bell tower. By the way, he moved the folder for two months on the expedition - he is a geologist and is looking for molybdenum, he constantly insisted. That he definitely was on that river.

Rubbermaid Features: Snap-in Hooks

What. Did I feel at that moment. And I, as always, was at a crossroads. One thing was clear - we were engaged in a dangerous game, and the price of this game was quite high.

Now discussing:

Yes, dear reader, I like women very much, and most of my sexual fantasies are dedicated to them. Fine, she said again. - You know, I am not only a gynecologist, but also a sexologist.
