    Default Storing RBL really big lights

    looking for ideas here. since they only fit maybe 2 in a normal tote, what are people doing to store them. I have 9, but planning to finish all 24 this year.

    The best I've seen was someone who had more than a few. They created a cart they could pull with a garden tractor with all of them hanging from hooks.
    If you don't want to sit them on shelves, perhaps you can design your own "box" for them.

    I have about 24 RBL's and I put them in large plastic heavy duty trash bags. Then store them in the attic.

    I have a few large totes that are 38 gallons. I can fit close to 20 in them

    This is how I store mine. I have them on pvc posts though, not using the original hooks.

    I feel I may have had a hand in your addiction with those lights, I feel like a dealer.

    I hang my 20 on a laundry drying wire (one of those cheap steel wires with the green rubber sheathing) that I attach to the joists in my basement. If I want to carry them all I can just unhook the 2 ends from the joists and bring the whole thing up at once. Debating about splitting it into two smaller sections though.

    Hanging in my shed from a 100 lbs test line. 10 in on a line.


    2020 Full sized show reworked for the new location. Only adding (famous last words) 13 RBLs that I finally got converted to using pixels
    2019 - Just moved into a new home (yet another change of plans). Will be dim but not dark. Too much to do at the new place to leave time for a show. Dim show (3000 pixels) had regular visits most nights.
