Cleaning rod storage?



Log in to see fewer ads
Is there a good way to store cleaning rods? I have a few stuck in a 3' piece of 1/2" pvc pipe. And a few stuck on my safe with magnets. Just wondering what others do. Thank you.

I just have mine across a gunrack. Although I've been thinking about hanging them from a hook.

Sometimes I clean my rifles at the range when not going straight home so like you I keep mine in pvc pipe, 2 glued together with Ts. One for the rod & jag and the other for the rod & brush.

Dewey has rod tubes with tops made to be hung for $2.00 each. I have made holders with thin PVC pipe as someone else suggested and used PVC adhesive to glue on hangers.

I keep Dewey rods in each of my Benchrest Cases for that particular Gun / Caliber.

Mine are hung against the wall near my bench...

Thread an 8/32 Eye Bolt (or 10/32 for blackpowder, and the smaller size for a Dewey 17-cal rod) into the rod and hang it up on a nail. Works out very well for me.

I'm high tech/high dollar: A screwdriver rack from Harbor Freight on the end of the pegboard above my desk. Actually, I splurged and bought two racks.......

I bought a Berkeley fishing rod Holder. I mounted them on the side of a cabinet and hang my rods from them.

My Pro Shot cleaning rods came in a nice plastic case .My Dewey rods came from Brownell in very thick cardboard tubing so I just left them in there .I store them all horizontally under a shelf in between the shelf brackets

I use PVC pipe.. works really well, esp for travel, just throw them in the back of the truck.. they will stay safe in the tube!

Mine still resides in the nice clear plastic tube the manufacturer put it in years ago.
