“The Rack” Organizes Cordless Tools
As a contractor working out of his truck for 15 years, David Convertini knew there had to be a more efficient way to store his valuable cordless tools and batteries that would keep them both safe and easy to reach. The idea for The Rack came to him while putting on a metal roof, and he built a prototype that day onsite.
“It fits on unutilized space off the back of the headrest,” Convertini explains.
After removing the headrest on the passenger seat of his pickup, The Rack’s 1-in. square steel frame with an open channel slips over the holes for the headrest legs. Putting the headrest back in place secures the frame and rack that holds batteries and tools by their belt clips.
With encouragement from friends and contractors, Convertini took three versions of The Rack to the National Hardware Show in Las Vegas in February.
“I launched it there to get it out in the public and get feedback. It was astronomical and got real,” he says. He listened to distributors and retailers who were interested in it, and he redesigned The Rack into one tool that fits on a headrest or hooks on a bracket for permanent or portable storage in a van or workshop.
The Rack (patent-pending) is made in the U.S. and is powder-coated. It sells for $159 and can be purchased through his Vehicle Storage Solution website, Amazon, and other wholesale and retail dealers.
“My main purpose was for someone working out of a vehicle, but now it’s movable to use in a shop setting or any site for anyone with power tools.
