Folding Clothes Drying Rack


Linda had seen an idea for a clothes drying rack that mounted on the wall and had one set of rods that hinged down and were held in place with chains. Starting with that concept, we came up with a design that had three sets of folding rods, hidden behind bifold doors when not in use. Our rack was designed for the wall in our laundry room that’s right beside the dryer. All folded up, this rack is only about four inches deep. The fun part of the design was working out the three four-bar linkages that allow all three sets of rods to pivot into place at the same time.
