In my last house the bikes were stored in the garage, hanging from the wall. I moved house recently, to a house where the garage had been converted. Fine I think, luxury heated bike room it is! However…
I attached my bike hooks to the wall, only for them to pull out of the all after a few weeks. The wall seems to be some kind of plasterboard with insulation behind it, it’s about 150mm from the actual real wall.
Any suggestions for something other than wall hanging that will get 5 bikes in the same amount of space? Or some clever way of attaching them to the wall without them falling off?
For anyone else who comes across this, I found the batons using some neodymium magnets, they located the screws/nails where the plasterboard was attached. I then screwed some more batons across them and attached the bike hooks to these, so I could locate the hooks where I needed them. Nothing has fallen down yet!
Knocking didn’t work so well, even when I knew where the batons were knocking didn’t sound different. This may have been due to it being a garage conversion so the gap behind the plasterboard was larger than a normal partition wall.
