Front Clips for Easy Storage
The Rubbermaid Tool Tower comes with front clips that allow easy slide-in storage from side. The front clips simplify access and storing of the long handled tools like shovels and brooms and allow head-down storage, making the tower rack bottom heavy which makes it more stable. The front clips are also useful if you do not have enough head room and if the tools are wide on both ends. The base of the tower has a grid pattern to keeps the tools in place, so they do not slide into other tools or slide off.
If you have too many long handled tools, you may need enough clearance above the rack in order to slide the tool handle through the holes in the rack from the above. There are several sized holes for different types of tools.
Due to the varying sizes of the holes, not all tools will fit in every hole and all the tools will not go through the holes either. Keep in mind that certain tools will go in certain way and there may be some tools that will not fit in a hole. For those items you may need different type of storage option.

And when you have chosen your right spot for the garden tool storage rack, locking 2 of casters will keep the unit in place. It is not advised to move around the rack full of tools too much.
