    Confused Setting up service van, I need a refrigerant can holder for my van

    I looked at Johnstone Supply, and Grainger, and they don't have it. , I can't think of any other company's in Minnesota I can go and actually look at the thing, so I can make sure it will fit in my van before I buy it.

    Any suggestions?

    (btw I started my first HVAC job 2 weeks ago and I'm just getting everything settled in, I'm working for a plumbing company that is starting this part of their company with me)

    -Thanks in advance!

    I'm looking for the rack that you put in the corner of your van's back section, that can hold 2 or so -30 lb recovery cylinders.

    I know they're online but I prefer a store that I can go to, near the twin cities.

    Do you deal with a sheet metal shop at all in your daily travels? If so just ask that shop to fabricate the holders for you. Have the foreman measure you up a couple custom holders and you can put them where they will work best for you.

    The problem I have right now.... the hardware (molly bolts?) holding the rack to the side of the van have pulled out... So have the ones for my shelves...

    Anyone have a good fix/repair?
