Earlier this year, we were invited to attend an outdoor event sponsored by The Home Depot. There we were able to see and try tool offerings from various tool manufacturers. One of those tools was the Expand-It system by Ryobi.
After the event, we were asked if we would like to try out a couple of offerings from Ryobi, including the 40V Brushless Expand-It System. This system has a variety of heads that can be swapped out to be used on the same powered head. We tried out the hedge trimmer, edger and string trimmer.
After Steph tried out the system, she decided to design and build a wall hung rack for the various components. The rack holds the attachments, as well as makes it easy to attach the accessories while the handle is still firmly held in the holder. It's a pretty cool idea!
This holder makes a convenient place to store the Ryobi Expand-It system components. They are easily accessible and within easy reach. As more attached are acquired, the holder can also be expanded by adding additional 2x6 shelves.
Big thanks to Ryobi Outdoor for giving us the outdoor tools to try out!

I used a 1 1/8” shank spade. Maybe the diameter isn’t the same as a hole saw but I would assume it is, considering the numeric value. However the 1 1/8” shank spade definitely did not fit a 1” pvc pipe Nor did it fit the attachments themselves

The written part is wrong. In the video she says 1-3/8" hole saw. Soo now I have a kit I don't need. This shelf is getting expensive haha.
