There are a lot of different ways to store bikes and this is by far the best I've found. The swivel function is clutch when you're trying to minimize wall space. If you take your time and measure carefully you can set them up so you never have to lift the full weight of the bike to get them on and off, which is really handy for those with heavy electric bikes. I didn't do that since I wanted to stagger the heights to get them even closer together. Make sure you get the right model for the type of bike you're putting on it. It's based on the tire width. The ones made for road bikes don't have a wheel tray wide enough for mountain bike tires. This isn't the cheapest way to hang bikes on the wall, but it's the safest and one of the better looking options.
