Default detector storage?

How does everyone here keep their machines when not in use besides leaning 'em against a wall in the closet? I have an unfinished area in my basement, cool and dry, and I'm thinking about hanging them from the ceiling somehow, with bicycle hooks or broom/shovel holders that you can get at the hardware store maybe. I just hate having them on the floor where curious two-year olds can get to them.

Default Maybe I'll post a pic of mine......

When it is sitting for a week or more I usually put it in my room. It will hang under my "catwalk" ( yes read that right), in two nylon straps with those quick release buckles. Any longer than 3-5 weeks and the batteries come out.
