Lockable Rod Storage for Garage
« on: May 13, 2020, 09:11:10 AM »

I park my boat in our alley so I've never felt comfortable keeping them in my boat. In years past I've always brought them into the house and stored them in the basement until the next outing. It's incredibly annoying doing that everytime. I have a detached garage that I would be willing to store my rods in if I could have one extra layer of theft deterrent. Has anyone built any sort of rod storage system in their garage that could potentially be secured?

Craig, the easiest thing to do is to buy a Simply Safe System to protect the interior of your garage by motion detection.  You can have it simply activate a sounder that is loud enough to make the probably thief go away before getting to your stuff.  You then can place your rods on a free standing rod rack as far away from your door (s) as reasonably possible. 

I keep my rods this way and it saves the aggravation of taking the rods into the house after each outing.  I still have to load the boat each day but at least they are fairly close to the boat.  My garage is also detached so I know the exposure that exists for things like this.

The bottom line is you just want the bad guy to go away and not catch them.  You can also have the system call your cell phone but confronting someone can be a dangerous deal unless you are up to the challenge.

I have racks that my rods go in in my garage and being attached to the house it is also alarmed like the rest of the house.
I also have a couple of 2x2's mounted on down brackets overhead I keep some rods on and extra pvc pipe too lol.

I have a carport I installed to keep leafs and weather away from car and boat in my fenced in yard. I use the lock on rod locker to keep them secured with a camera that alerts me on motions/sounds/people. I also have lots of motion lights in the yard to brighten it up at night. Iím like you I donít like them out there like that. But, Iím also kinda lazy after fishing all day.

How many rods do you need to store?

It isn't very difficult to make a book shelf frame, add some backing and use a partially sliced pool noodle to hold the rod upright.  Then make some plywood doors for the front of the cabinet and put a padlock on it.

It only needs to be about 5 and a half inches 6 inches deep, and 8 foot high, Plywood is usually 4x8 feet so if you make it 8 feet long, you will need two sheets for doors, but probably could get by with a 4 footer and one sheet, some hardware, and done.  Probably less than $100.

Screw the cabinet to the wall, and they can't carry it off.

Might not be the prettiest thing around but it will be a great deterrent.

I might not be describing it well enough, but I have it in my mind perfectly.  :-* ~b~

If you're handy with cutting tools and a welder, pick up a couple old school lockers from a flea market or auction and make a 9' tall locker and anchor it to the floor. You could also lay it flat and anchor it.
