C - Clamps

was it not Norm who said "You can never have too many clamps!"

he did a rolling cart for pipe clamps - like 50 of them! - and taking the concept of bit further I'd like to make a roll around clamp&tool "caddy" - clamps on one side, open cubbies on the other for the "most used" hand&electric tools on the other.

storing/hanging the bar clamps is easy - and the flat screw types - but the blinking C-clamps . . .
any clever ideas/methods ? sizes vary - 4" and down.

Steve Ramsey has a YouTube video on clamp storage and he addressed c clamps.

Any type of system where you hook the clamp should work.

I don't have a LOT of C-clamps, but the ones I do have hang on a 6" peg board hook. Hang them from the screw side and they sit pretty good.

mikechell -

I think I considered every orientation in the peg hanging except that! excellent - thanks for the tip.

the designs/shapes at the non-threaded vary a lot, but the threaded end is much more consistent.

You're welcome. Had the same problem for a while. Got so frustrated that I had them all piled in a box.
I was actually just tossing one up on the peg to get it out of the way for a second when it slid around into that position. As is the usual ... "Ting" "Ah ha !!!" by mistake.
Now they all hang together that way.
