3. How does my equipment attach to GearStash?
Special hooks that you arrange in numerous webbing loops.
4. How much will the GearStash hold?
As much as you to want to cram on it. Our largest design accommodates multi-sport gear of one person (or the seasonal gear of two people). A family is likely to need several GearStash units or a variety of models.
The 1.25 system load rating is 150 lbs and the 2.5 system load rating is 300 lbs. The 5.0 system load rating is 600 lbs. The wall screw hooks must be installed properly into wood studs to allow these 150 lbs. per stud ratings (two studs for the 1.25 and 2.5 and four studs for the 5.0. Owner's manual details installation instructions.
5. What if my equipment is very heavy?
GearStash will hold the weight of most sports gear for one or two people.
See last answer for load ratings per webbing strip and stud screw hooks. Each webbing loop is rated at 40 lbs. The J-hooks are rated at 500 lbs. (It's their design and rigidity that helps creates our unique 'system').
