We have a nice old pair of wooden, non-folding sawhorses, made for me by my master carpenter Father-in-law several decades ago, and I finally came up with a good way to store them out of the way when not needed.
I use them often so they need to be within reach while not taking up any valuable garage floor space, so they now hang upside-down from the ceiling rafters, back to back. Not sure why I never thought of this before!
Our garage has a 9 foot ceiling, so I can walk under them without having my “bells rung”, but can easily reach up and quickly pull down one or both of them.
Not thrilled about drilling holes through the 2 x 4 truss rafter, I bent up a pair of simple hanger hooks from some 1/4″ mild steel rod salvaged from an old futon we scrapped a while back. The hooks just hang over the top of the rafter, prevented from sliding around by a couple of small round-crown staples on top. The hook ends fit through 1/2″ holes drilled in the center of two legs of each horse.
I’m pleasantly surprised by how well this has worked out. I’ve been walking around these horses for a long time, and with the limited space [cough] on my side of the garage, this is a big improvement.
Hope that’s helpful.
God bless you,
