I'd agree with User217623 on drilling the Ski-Rack to hit the studs with Lag screws. However, the 2x4 idea is fine, I'd go with Tee-Nuts on the backside of the 2x4's for the Ski-Rack mounting, so you can use large bolts. Use thick or double washers on everything, except the Tee-Nuts of course. Even Douglas Fir 2x4's are quite soft & will loosen over ...

Assuming not much is as stake, the idea is reasonable if the rack will still 'work' when it is 1.5" from the wall. I suggest screws or lags of whatever type you have on hand, long enough to drive 1.5" into the stud, placed 3/4" from the top of the 2x4 cleat, one per stud, assuming you can tighten the screws enough to fasten the cleat tightly to the wall. ...

Doing this right now. Simple 50 amp sub feed to a shed. Two hots (ungrounded conductor), one neutral (grounded conductor), one ground (equipment grounding conductor) in 1" pvc. Ground rod at the shed. Simple, that's how you do it.

That's a Euro-style lock cylinder. It is normally held in place by a setscrew clamping it into the lock, but you may have to substantially disassemble the lock before you can get to that screw. If you can't figure out how to remove the cylinder, I'd suggest dismounting the whole lick body from the door and bringing it to a locksmith. That will save you the ...

2 part epoxy paints are the toughest for garage floors. The floor paint in 1 can really has not held up well for those I know that have used it. The 1 part stuff pulls up where the tires sit. I had a 3 bay shop with a 33' motor home in 1 bay and 3500 diesel truck in another and the floor looked great after 8-10 years when I sold the place. some of the big ...

In my personal experience, you likely have a partially fried garage door opener motherboard. Unless it's incredibly ancient, it should code-lock (not merely "frequency choice") to only its particular remotes. In any case, if you tell it to lock out, it should lock out. Since neither of those things seems to happen, "Something is wrong." In my particular ...

If it didn't open randomly before you changed the frequency (to avoid your neighbor) then you probably stumbled onto another frequency in use in your area, and that's why it continues to open unintentionally. You might want to record the frequency variations you have tried, then switch to another (most remotes support dozens of possible choices) until you ...

If there's enough headroom above the basement stairs, I would consider building a staircase over the existing basement stairs. Then you get to pick a height that works for all directions. You could also make the stairs without risers and increase the overlap on the treads, almost turning them in to a ladder. This is the way stairs on Navy ships are ...
