This is a holder designed for bicycle bags that mount the baggage porter on the bike (like those from Ortlieb). At home those bags usually lie around somewhere and are a bit of a pain to pack when not mounted to a bike. This thing gives you a wall mounted baggage porter for your bags!


  1. print n brackets where n is one more than the number of bags you'd like to hang. (For 2 bags, print 3 brackets.
  2. find a position on the wall where you'd like to mount the bag holder
  3. mark the positions for the bore holes (in Germany we mostly have brick walls, so we need to bore a hole before mounting anything to a wall...)
  4. bore mounting holes in the wall
  5. mount the individual brackets without the rod.
  6. cut rod/tubing to length
  7. carefully push the rod through
  8. hang bags

I printed the brackets with a .5mm nozzle from ABS with a layer height of .2mm. The print came out ok. The overhang doesn't look too good, but it's fine for the intended use.
The bracket might look flimsy but worked for me so far: I'm sometimes putting 5kg upwards in a single bag. Only mount the brackets with the rod/tubing on the upper side, otherwise they will break much easier.

BoM (for 2 bags):

  • n x printed brackets (n=3)
  • 2*n x screws for mounting the brackets (6)
  • 1x 8mm rod (I used some 8mm aluminum tubing from the hardware store)

BTW: http://www.ortlieb.de/ bags are great!

How is the wall underneath the hooks looking after some time of use. Is the wall getting dirty by the dirty bags?


actually better than I expected, even after 4 years of daily usage. But our bags are not dirty and only the hook that holds the bag to the porter is touching the wall. But you can certainly tell a difference between my position and my SOs position, one takes more care than the other when placing the bags (I leave it up to guess who is who).

If you want to be safe, just mount something (piece of wood? acrylic? Or print something :) where the hook touches the wall.

Love it, especially since it's a very elaborate design for a very simple thing! If this didn't already exist, I would have needed to create it, and then it would just be an extruded triangle :)

Thank you!

I put some effort into the design as this thing is mounted quite visibly in my place...

Have you actually made a copy? Would you mind posting a picture of it?

hmm, mine broke after some use, so I made a beefed up version: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:144839http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...

Nice idea, but actually you could also take one of those kitchen stuff hangers directly from a big furniture shop.

That's something I didn't think of, also it doesn't involve a 3d printer :).
I just did a little research, and it looks like it would be quite possible, though most of those kitchen stuff hangers seem to have a diameter in the range of 12 to 16mm.
