There will be a small (200mm/8inch) space between the back wall of the garage and the boundary fence. We want to use this for storing those awkward things like ladders! We went through a series of ideas before settling on having a set of tight steel ropes and hanging items from them on sliding loops. Now we needed brackets to hold the rope up and tensioned.

Typical us, we decided to make our own!

We bought steel angle from our local steel stockist and cleaned off the foundry crud with a grinder. Then we cut the parts using our universal chop saw. Joining holes were drilled and the bracket assembled. A matching bracket for the other end was made next.
