Custom door hanger

So I got tired of just leaning my doors up against the wall with a town under them and decided I'd figure out a safe cool way to store my doors and vinyl windows when they are not on my jeep (which 99.9% of the time they are off) So this is what I came up with.

Went to lowes and bought 4 of these:


Measure where I wanted them.... leveled them out... the whole 9 yards


Then I decided to drill in two small pieces of velcro under each arm for the vinyl windows for the side of the jeep.


So here is the left side all on the wall and the right side what it looks like empty


Minus on door:


Holding almost everything:


To top it off it even hold the rear vinyl window!


It holds everything and the Jeep still has room to sit inside the garage.



Will that's it for my thread, I hope you enjoyed and let me know what you did for your doors or if you like/dislike mine.

I feel for the window frame welds. We will be holding a memorial service for them in the near future unless you support the bottom of the doors. You can do something as simple as running a strap that goes over the hooks and under the door. Tighten up the strap enough to support most of the door's weight so the welds aren't doing it.

yeah I already thought about doing something like that, I hear that its not the best thing for them but i mean how much worse could it be compared to people using the top to close the door or to shut it... and thats someone using the door everyday... my doors are off 99% of the time.... im still going to do something to support the bottom but just saying everyone talks about it but no one has yet to SHOW me the proof...

still planned on adding more support to the bottom tho, thanks for the feed back

Can't show you the proof because it's nothing but a memory to us now. My wife's '05 TJ had these welds beginning to crack when we sold it a few years back. We bought it new and kept it for three years. The doors spent most of the summer months hanging on hooks similar to yours. I did always support them with straps. You're right about the stresses other things put on the welds. The pressure against the frame when the door is closed, the pushing and shoving when closing the doors, road vibration, ... it all adds up. Why add to it by hanging the window by the frame?

If you are worried about the welds, hang them upside down.

So you had the hanger and a strap and it still did it? Or it started to happen and then you put the strap on it?

I have two vehicles in it, so it needs to be clean to have the space! I have most stuff in storage bins in my attic and stuff hanging from the roof...

Very cool and cheap project. Improving on your original idea is no big deal, most everyone does that, its quite normal. The difficult part is coming up with idea to begin with. Good job.

The cracking was due to the pressure put on the frame by the top when the door is closed.
