Dumbbell rack - ideas
All the racks I see for dumbbells seem like overkill for my humble collection of vinyl-coated dumbbells, and expensive to boot. But i do want to get my dumbells off the floor in some semblance of order.
I currently have 7 pair, ranging from 1 - 8 pounds per dumbbell. While brainstorming, I determined that I could hang one dumbbell vertically from a tool hook we have that looks like this - double-pronged straight hook - see attached photo.
The hooks hold up to 15 pounds. I thought I could mount a two 2x4s to our basement wall to accomodate a couple rows of these hooks and I'd be set. I believe the dumbbells would be easy enough to remove and replace from the hooks as needed.
My main question is how to securely mount the 2x4s to our basement/ foundation walls. Unlike our garage walls, I believe the foundation is solid concrete. My plan is to hang a board long enough - horizontally - to accomodate about 10-12 of these hooks. What type of screw/fastener would be used to mount the 2x4?
Does anyone have any other/better ideas related to my idea?
