If you’re looking for a neat and simple way for storing light stands, tripods and booms, guys from The Film Look have come up with a simple solution and they share it in their latest video. All it takes are some screws, hooks and two pieces of bungee cord, and you’re all set.
The stands and tripods usually end up crammed in a corner of the room or behind the door. This makes it difficult to reach the right one, especially if you’re trying not to tip over all the others. The storage hack from this video helps you organize the stands better, make them easily accessible, and also use up the otherwise unused space. And you’ll have to agree, it’s always good to use the extra space to the max.

How to make
This build is as simple as it gets. You need to drill four holes in the wall where you want to store the light stands and tripods. Screw the wall plugs in, and then add the screw hooks to them. All that’s left to do is stretch the bungee cords across the wall and that’s all.
These cords will give your light stands and similar gear support so they don’t tip over. They’re strong enough to support the gear, yet elastic enough so you have an easy access. You can store anything that’s thin and tall, like umbrellas, monopods, and of course tripods and all sorts of light stands.
We’ve featured another great tripod wall holder before, and you can find it here. But if you’re looking for a quick and simple solution, this bungee cord approach is definitely the way to go.
