Making a PVC fishing rod holder is an easy and inexpensive way to store and protect your rods and reels. With just a few materials and some basic tools, you can build your own fishing rod holder in no time. Here’s how you do it:
Step 1: Gather Materials
To make a PVC fishing rod holder, you’ll need the following materials:
- 2 x 10-foot lengths of schedule 40 PVC pipe
- 2 x 5-foot lengths of schedule 40 PVC pipe
- 8 x 90-degree elbows (4 for each side)
- 4 x T-connectors (2 for each side)
- PVC glue or cement
Step 2: Cut the Pipe
Using a saw, cut the 10-foot length of pipe into four 2.5-foot lengths and the 5-foot length of pipe into two 2.5-foot lengths.
Step 3: Assemble the Holder
Using the elbows and T-connectors, assemble one side of the holder first. Start by attaching two elbows to one end of each 2.5-foot length of pipe.
Connect these to two T connectors, then attach two more elbows to the other end of each pipe. Repeat this process on the other side.
Step 4: Glue It Together
Once you have both sides assembled, use PVC glue or cement to secure all of the joints together.
: Step 5: Hang It Up!
You can hang your new fishing rod holder up in your garage or shed with some heavy duty screws or nails and some strong string or rope.
Making your own PVC fishing rod holder is an easy way to store and protect your rods and reels. With just a few materials and some basic tools, you can build a sturdy holder in no time at all!
