Stacking Units on the Much Less Common 18” Garage Door Panels: 

Since the Hooks Racks were designed for the Standard 21” Door they won’t Stack without breaking UNLESS:
You use panels 2 and 4 and skip a Garage Door Panel in between.
OR You use the Swing Free Option OR 6” of Slack Option
(See Swing Free and 6" Slack Options on that Installation Page)
(Some Prefer this Option due to less movement of the rods when Garage Door moves.)

Hurricane Struts    
Hooks Rack is designed to work over 3” Struts that aren’t attached to Hinges & that use door hinges with Hollow Tubes.
(You may need to cut off the Alignment Leg if the Lower Strut is in the way)
