Floor to Ceiling Clamp

Introduction: Floor to Ceiling Clamp

About: Just a guy with an insatiable enthusiasm for designing and making things!

This is an Instructable about how to make your own lightweight Floor to Ceiling Clamp.

A Floor to Ceiling Clamp is basically two poles which are being pushed apart by the force of a mechanism. This pushing force locks the upright poles between the floor and ceiling allowing you to easily mount almost anything anywhere in a room!

Here a few ideas I had for mine:

  • Shelving
  • Coat Rack
  • Room Divider
  • Clothes Line

I'm sure there are heaps of other uses, so now that you've seen how awesome these could be, let's build one!

    Thanks for the kind words D_mon and Seamster! You are right, this design can be easily made with a number of different methods and materials. In fact my early prototypes were built without 3d printed parts (see photos), but I used tools like clamps, a drill press and extra pieces of wood which may not be available to some people.

    The aim of the 3d printed parts was simply to cut down hands-on build time and the amount of other tools and materials required (as well as provide additional structual support)

    the 3d printed bits help to stop the wood from splitting too i assume, but its true, there are other ways it could be done too.
    either way i love it, really nice idea! thank you!

    This is brilliant! For anyone not wanting to go the 3D printed route, this looks like a design that could be cobbled together with pretty common tools.. Nice!

    Very cool idea, thank you for sharing this.
