    Ok so I had a morning free thought I would tidy up the van.

    One thing I didn't have a place for was all the squeegees, yo know the odd ones you only use on occasion so I made a storage system for them.

    1: Length of plastic pipe (about £4 at B&Q)

    2: Cut down to approx 1-2 inch pieces

    If you wonder why the sizes vary it's cause I cut freehand I can't measure worth a toss.

    3: Cut a slit in them and sand off the rough edges

    [​IMG]

    4: Screw into required position for size of squeegee handle

    This is only to hold the squeegees I only use occasionally, my regular 2 live in my BOAB

    Good idea
    I was thinking those plastic pipe clamps that paul used and screw them on to put the handles in but your idea is better i think as the handles can't jump out on bumps etc

    I like these little storage ideas as my van is a mess, its driving me crazy. My problem is that I do too many trades so itsa bit difficult to give one tool or set of tools priority. But it would be great to have a few squeegees clipped to the side to keep the rubbers healthy. I've got a load of spring clips on the way from ebay as I am putting up a few of my most commonly used spare tools like hammer, stanley,tape measure, hacksaw on display in easy reach as it saves me going into my tool bag each time.

    That's a good idea tolish
    I have one of those drilled boards in the shed with my car tools in springclips and on hooks
    Good to know where they are instantly rather than getting the tool boxes out

    Same with me tolish I do a lot of internal cleaning and carpets so I have arranged my van so that all my window cleaning stuff is at the back of the van and my other cleaning equipment is by the sliding door using up the other half of my van lol
