This kit is a convenient way to start enjoying the benefits of the Rockler Ceiling Track System. The hooks keep your cords and hoses off the ground, but roll freely along the track so you can sand, saw and rout without fighting with them. They can also be used to hang doors for finishing or to hang tools and utility lights. The kit includes all of the key components, providing a base from which you can easily expand. This consists of a 4' ceiling track that accepts two rolling trolleys—one that rolls but can be locked in place, and one that rolls freely. Each trolley accepts either of the two included hooks: a Ring Hook and a 2-1/2'' J-Hook. Two end stops are included for the ends of the track. At 4' long, the track is enough to span most workbenches, and maybe that is all you need. But if you want to expand the system, you'll quickly discover which elements are most useful to you.


Features:

  • Lifts cords and hoses off the floor, minimizing wear and tear
  • Keeps dust hoses from dragging over the edge of your workpiece as you sand, saw and rout
  • Reduces tangling of cords and hoses and reduces the risk of tripping
  • Ring Hook accepts most extension cords and standard quick-release air fittings
  • 2-1/2'' J-Hook accepts a variety of hoses, including 2-1/2'' dust hose

This is my third...
I've got one track in my welding area and another two in the machine shop. When my wood shop gets moved, I'll likely buy another one. They're a great place to hang spring balancers from to hold blow guns and air tools.

Hang it from the Ceiling
I received and set up this kit in a matter of minutes and have used it to complete a footstool for a chair I had previoulsy made witout this handy kit. Instad of dragging sander cords and hoses all over my project they were all above the worksite making it so simple and efficient. I knew I had needed this shop aid and so glad I finally got it.

Install instructions fix
So I installed the ceiling track system above my workbench and at 90 degrees to the joists, using a 2x4 runner, per the instructions. The instructions said to use 3 inch lag screws to connect the track to the 2x4 but i used 1 1/2 inch lag screws so they wouldn't stick out the other side. It seems to work fine.

I was searching for a good way to mount a light directly over our game table. This looked like a good way to accomplish the task. Plus it looks good too!

Plan on using this along my 'sanding wall' where my orbital sander, 4" x 36" belt sander, and 1" belt sander reside. Will keep my vacuum hose up and out of the way.

Outlets and intakes (of electrical cords and vacuum hoses) keep getting pulled across works in progress or they catch on workbench legs. it is time to make an upgrade to the shop! <br />The ceiling tracks seem to be the correct action to cure these problems.

Is there a method to hang peg board from the trolleys?
Jay L on Jul 6, 2018
Is there an Aluminum track that will work with the Trolleys and hooks?
John B on Aug 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Not at this time.
Can you connect several tracks together?
Jim S on Sep 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: you can add as many as you like, I used 2 works fine
What is the max weight the track will hold? I want to hang a pneumatic flattener.
Eric j on Sep 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The maximum weight capacity for the track is 60 pounds
Can the tracks be cut to a specific size if needed?
Richard P on Nov 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes they can be cut to a specific length
Will these work on a vaulted ceiling? Will the rollers slide freely if they hang at an angle?
Shane J on May 20, 2020
BEST ANSWER: No. The non-locking trolleys would move freely only if they are hanging lengthwise in the track. But if the track is at an angle lengthwise they would just slide to the bottom. The locking trolleys cannot hang at an angle at all. Neither trolly style can move freely if hanging at an angle sideways to the track.

Hope that is clear.
I would like to hang a Jet Airfiltration Unit (probably AFS1000b) from tracks installed side by side so I can reposition the unit where I need it most. Can these tracks handle the weight?
Skip K on Mar 8, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The weight capacity PER TRACK is 60 lbs.. I don’t know how much the Jet filtration unit weighs, but if your using 2 of the tracks, you’d be within Rocklers specs at 120 lbs.
Where can I get heavy clear tarps as shown??
