Wetsuit Drying Rack Suggestion

This wetsuit drying rack, built out of 1.25” PVC pipe, has a couple advantages over throwing it over a deck railing (splinters, exposed to UV, runs the risk of the wetsuit freezing in the winter) or hanging it in your shower (it would be in the way and might scare the crap out of you or others in your family by eliciting Psycho shower scene flashbacks) on hangers.

Made with 1.25" PVC pipe

Wetsuit drying rack suggestion

Firstly, if you use it in your shower or tub, it is easily removable.  You can see the base was made to fit a utility tub to catch the drips, so you could even locate it outside the shower or even on a tiled floor in some other room.  A good hint is to make the rack high enough so that neither the ankle or wrist cuffs touch the floor/bottom of the tub, but low enough so they hang inside the tub so no drips can escape it and pool on the floor.


While the fit of the pipe connections are tight enough to stay-put on their own, I glued them with PVC cement so I can lift the entire assembly all together (rack and wetsuit) if I have to quickly relocate it.   I did leave the T connection between the base and the vertical posts so I could disassemble it to adjust the height or if I have to stash it in a closet or transport in the car.
