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

Heavy PVC Track, good bearings and solid hardware. Needs lube.
I installed almost 24' of this track across my ceiling. The installation was simple, I started by finding joists and marking hole locations, going one 4' section at a time. Marking the holes, measuring and drilling worked best for me.
The instructions state to mount this to a 2x4 or some wood and not directly to the ceiling. I did not heed this instruction. Each piece has three lags into joists on 16" centers. This should be fine and I'll update the post if not.
As I mention, the hardware is solid. No problem there. The "stoppable" roller is fine, sortof double threaded with the plastic nut easily tightenable. I bought the kit to fit 2.5" hose.
My one complaint, perpendicular pressure on the roller assemblies puts just enough pressure on the inside of the track where it contacts the metal post to put on the brakes. In order to get mine to slide smoothly, I must pull parallel to the track. I think this would be easily solved by liberal application of lube (doesn't that solve most problems). I'll report back if this is not the case.
If you're like me and use a combination of 2.5 shopvac dust collection, and a collection unit with 4" pipes, this is a great solution to get your 2.5" hoses off the ground.

Pictured using the expandable Rockler hoses, 3d printed connectors, and 3d printed wall mount of my design.
Retracted hose.  3d printed bracket for 90 degree from vac on floor.
Extended hose.   Again, to pull it this far, I need to pull parallel to the track.

Good Product Idea
Though I have not installed this yet I have inspected all the parts and they are very well made. The track is very heavy and sturdy and the parts are very nice also. My only complaint is I wish that for the price they would include just a couple more accessories

To use s 4 inch hose as a vacuum
Roger C on Nov 26, 2018
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!
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
BEST ANSWER: Although this is a good system I have found bunny straps and hooks do same thing. Attach hooks in joists and attach bunny straps.
