Simplistic designs are good. However, simplistic designs with improved degree of spatial efficiency are even better. In this regard, we are surely enticed by the scope of Clutch, an elementary yet smart mechanical system that allows your ladder to be kept ‘fixed’ along your unused ceiling space. This in turn means that the obtrusiveness of those unwieldy ladders will be totally negated, thus endowing more free space to your home’s storage area or garage.
As we mentioned before, this innovative system from Quirky works in a pretty simple manner. Basically, it consists of two ceiling mounted components. The first component is a hook like structure at one end that holds on to the ladder. And secondly there is a clasp at the other end that can be clicked on and off as a lock to pull down (vertically, along the walls) and hoist (horizontally, along the ceiling) the ladder. These ceiling mounted components are in turn to be fixed to your ceiling’s beams for a sturdy support.
And, since we are talking about sturdiness, the Clutch items are crafted from hardy yet lightweight materials like reinforced plastic and metal. In fact, the tensile strength of both these materials come into play, when heavy extendable ladders are to be ‘hanged’ along the ceiling. However, the circulation space would still remains free, especially when it comes to the scope of your already cramped garages.
