I wanted to have a bike sit vertically against the wall in a secure way. The employees at Home Hardware were very helpful, asked me all the details (type of wall, how big was the bike, and how heavy it was). Then showed me the options I had. I ended up getting a hook and support to hang my bike. Works great and is so strong! The selection was a little limited though in terms of what I could use as they were a community hardware store but all I need was a quick fix and not something that was expensive and fancy.
