The rack came out of an old grain elevator in Nebraska. They used it to organized the different sized rubber belts for trucks and combines. We attached it to the wall and now use it for a coat rack.

Stops fighting if you know what I mean. They really are a great piece and I have always wondered where they came from. Thanks for the post!

You are so lucky to have found this piece. It's the ultimate clothes rack. Someday I hope to find such a wonderful piece of junk!!!
