Wall-mounted pannier racks?

I've been thinking about rigging something up in my office to mount my Ortlieb Backrollers to the wall... Suggestions? Have heard if people using fork mounted racks.

a dowel or tube the size of the tube on your rack , a hole in each end , and a wire to a ring, making a triangle

to hang over a picture hook, perhaps? nail in the wall-stud.



I use the shoulder strap and hang mine over a closet rod .. that is supported so an end is open and just slide the
strap over the closet rod.. which is in my laundry area over the washer/dryer.

shelf bracket which includes a closet rod support is a common builder's supply inventory item.

Why did you have to give me that idea? I'm in a food processing plant where they make much of their own equipment, and have very well-stocked scrap metal bins. Getting a support into my rock-hard lathe/plaster walls is a pain, though. But I've done it for other things.
